None of the women had osteoporosis, had taken prescription medications that could affect bone or calcium metabolism
in the previous three months, had any systemic or chronic disease, regularly consumed dried plums or prune juice already, or were heavy smokers.
Next, concerning the relationship between acid/alkaline balance and calcium metabolism
discussed in part I, the authors provide additional data:
Fahr Syndrome must be considered for a definitive diagnosis in patients with nonspecific neuropsychiatric symptoms and accompanying calcium metabolism
disorders in order to control serious morbidity and complications because of neurological damage.
Fish liver and fish oil is the main source of Vitamin D which is crucial for the development of bone in children as well as for absorption and calcium metabolism
Metastatic pulmonary calcification is a well-recognized complication of ESRD secondary to abnormal calcium metabolism
Studies in calcium metabolism
in infants with intrauterine growth retardation.
The calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) is a class C Gprotein-coupled receptor that plays a pivotal role in systemic calcium metabolism
by regulating parathyroid hormone secretion and urinary Ca excretion.
Relationship of animal protein-rich diet to kidney stone formation and calcium metabolism
The aim of our present study is to analyze calcium metabolism
and calciuria in postmenopausal women with osteoporotic fracture and without renal stones compared to women without osteoporosis and without renal stones.
Steroid metabolism was assessed after injection of ACTH at weeks 4 and 8, in addition to calcium metabolism
evaluation using serum calcium, 24 hour urinary calcium excretion, and urine calcium: creatinine ratio measurements.
In RML associated with AKI, calcium metabolism
follows a characteristic biphasic pattern.
Disorders of calcium metabolism
are usually associated with alterations of phosphorus (as inorganic phosphate).
