The amino acid L-glutamine is a theoretically-useful component in ORS because of its ability to act as a cotransport substrate with sodium, which leads to an increased absorption of NaCl, and its widely-known property as a fuel source for rapid turnover cells, including intestinal epithelial cells, lymphocytes, fibroblasts, and reticulocytes (2).
In addition to these hemodynamic properties, glucocorticoids have additional actions on sodium/phosphate cotransport, sulphate cotransport and amino acid transport.
Other studies have suggested that red cell RVD occurs because of electroneutral KCl cotransport out of the cell and RVI occurs because of electroneutral NaK2Cl or NaCl cotransport into the cell (Haussinger and Lang, 1991).
