Abstract

Plasma Cr concentrations have been studied in normal children aged 0–14 yr. Levels ranged from 0.65 to 0.88 μg/1 and did not change with age.

Plasma concentrations of CF patients given 0.5–0.75 μg Cr/kg/d in addition to their diet were similar to normal values. There was no correlation between these plasma values and growth retardation.
