BUN concentration vs amino-acid intake by amino-acid intake subgroups. By linear regression analysis, no correlation was noted between BUN concentration and amino-acid intake at any of the following intakes: (a) <1.0 g kg−1 day−1 (n=27, p=0.7, and r2=0.005), (b) 1.0 to 1.9 g kg−1 day−1 (n=50, p=0.9, and r2=0.0002), (c) 2.0 to 2.9 g kg−1 day−1 (n=45, p=0.9, and r2=0.0001), or (d) >3.0 g kg−1 day−1 (n=14, p=0.8, and r2=0.003).
