The brain needs fuel the healing process the healing process not just glucose.

So this research only only what to put in the IV bag at the start of treatment. ‘.. In fact, the brain needs fuel the healing process the healing process – not just glucose, Hovda suspects. Because they found that the effect of glucose by the brain changes after a TBI have used, the researchers believe other naturally used compounds, including pyruvate, beta-hydroxybutyrate, lactate and ketones, are considered in the treatment. Hovda and his colleagues believe that each of these fuels can have a different purpose, depending on the severity of the injury and whether the injured individual is serve an adult or adolescent.

In the last 20 years there have been more than 75 clinical trials for traumatic brain injuries, but none have resulted in a standard treatment for TBI. The current grant is both a research and clinical component: The research will look at the use of alternative fuels and how these fuels in the brain and the healing process the healing process to test during the clinical aspect of alternative fuels and examine the possible threat to the recovery after TBI when hyperglycemia is stopped.
