This paper concerns some issues involved in the design of tracer experiments for the development of whole-body compartmental models of nutrient metabolism. It focuses on tracer administration protocol, use of multiple tracers, sampling strategy, measurement types and experiment duration in a pragmatic approach to obtaining data suitable for analysis and interpretation with use of models.
