Calcium compounds used as food supplements or in food to supply the body with calcium. Dietary calcium is needed during growth for bone development and for maintenance of skeletal integrity later in life to prevent osteoporosis.
A basic element found in nearly all organized tissues. It is a member of the alkaline earth family of metals with the atomic symbol Ca, atomic number 20, and atomic weight 40. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and combines with phosphorus to form calcium phosphate in the bones and teeth. It is essential for the normal functioning of nerves and muscles and plays a role in blood coagulation (as factor IV) and in many enzymatic processes.
Stable calcium atoms that have the same atomic number as the element calcium, but differ in atomic weight. Ca-42-44, 46, and 48 are stable calcium isotopes.
Reduction of the blood calcium below normal. Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, Chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A polypeptide hormone (84 amino acid residues) secreted by the PARATHYROID GLANDS which performs the essential role of maintaining intracellular CALCIUM levels in the body. Parathyroid hormone increases intracellular calcium by promoting the release of CALCIUM from BONE, increases the intestinal absorption of calcium, increases the renal tubular reabsorption of calcium, and increases the renal excretion of phosphates.
Abnormally high level of calcium in the blood.
A non-metal element that has the atomic symbol P, atomic number 15, and atomic weight 31. It is an essential element that takes part in a broad variety of biochemical reactions.
Signal transduction mechanisms whereby calcium mobilization (from outside the cell or from intracellular storage pools) to the cytoplasm is triggered by external stimuli. Calcium signals are often seen to propagate as waves, oscillations, spikes, sparks, or puffs. The calcium acts as an intracellular messenger by activating calcium-responsive proteins.
The physiologically active form of vitamin D. It is formed primarily in the kidney by enzymatic hydroxylation of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (CALCIFEDIOL). Its production is stimulated by low blood calcium levels and parathyroid hormone. Calcitriol increases intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and in concert with parathyroid hormone increases bone resorption.
A disease of pregnant and lactating cows and ewes leading to generalized paresis and death. The disease, which is characterized by hypocalcemia, occurs at or shortly after parturition in cows and within weeks before or after parturition in ewes.
A vitamin that includes both CHOLECALCIFEROLS and ERGOCALCIFEROLS, which have the common effect of preventing or curing RICKETS in animals. It can also be viewed as a hormone since it can be formed in SKIN by action of ULTRAVIOLET RAYS upon the precursors, 7-dehydrocholesterol and ERGOSTEROL, and acts on VITAMIN D RECEPTORS to regulate CALCIUM in opposition to PARATHYROID HORMONE.
Native, inorganic or fossilized organic substances having a definite chemical composition and formed by inorganic reactions. They may occur as individual crystals or may be disseminated in some other mineral or rock. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed; McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
Unstable isotopes of calcium that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Ca atoms with atomic weights 39, 41, 45, 47, 49, and 50 are radioactive calcium isotopes.
A condition of abnormally elevated output of PARATHYROID HORMONE (or PTH) triggering responses that increase blood CALCIUM. It is characterized by HYPERCALCEMIA and BONE RESORPTION, eventually leading to bone diseases. PRIMARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is caused by parathyroid HYPERPLASIA or PARATHYROID NEOPLASMS. SECONDARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is increased PTH secretion in response to HYPOCALCEMIA, usually caused by chronic KIDNEY DISEASES.
A class of G-protein-coupled receptors that react to varying extracellular CALCIUM levels. Calcium-sensing receptors in the PARATHYROID GLANDS play an important role in the maintenance of calcium HOMEOSTASIS by regulating the release of PARATHYROID HORMONE. They differ from INTRACELLULAR CALCIUM-SENSING PROTEINS which sense intracellular calcium levels.
Uptake of substances through the lining of the INTESTINES.

A condition caused by a deficiency of PARATHYROID HORMONE (or PTH). It is characterized by HYPOCALCEMIA and hyperphosphatemia. Hypocalcemia leads to TETANY. The acquired form is due to removal or injuries to the PARATHYROID GLANDS. The congenital form is due to mutations of genes, such as TBX1; (see DIGEORGE SYNDROME); CASR encoding CALCIUM-SENSING RECEPTOR; or PTH encoding parathyroid hormone.

I alpha-hydroxycholecalciferol: a treatment of renal bone disease. (1/44)

Three patients with chronic renal failure on maintenance haemodialysis have been treated with 1 alpha-hydroxycholecalciferol (1 alpha-OHCC), a synthetic vitamin D analogue. A daily dose of 2 mug by mouth produced a significant increase in both calcium absorption from the gastrointestinal tract and calcium content of bone. Treatment with 1 alpha-OHCC appears to be effective in cases of metabolic bone disease associated with chronic renal failure.  (+info)

Idiopathic external root resorption associated to hypercalciuria. (2/44)

Although external root resorption (ERR) is a physiological process in deciduous dentition, it is very infrequent in permanent dentition - where the phenomenon is related to the existence of inadequate occlusal forces, periodontal pathology and microtraumatisms, etc. However, in many cases root resorption cannot be attributed to any concrete cause; such cases are defined as idiopathic external root resorption (IERR). Epidemiological studies have found that the underlying cause can only be established in 5% of all ERR. The present study describes three cases of IERR with different degrees of involvement and associated to mild calciuria and a history of nephrolithiasis. Hypercalciuria with normal blood calcium levels is usually idiopathic and exhibits a familial trait, with a prevalence of 20-40 cases per 1,000 individuals in adults. A form of hypercalciuria associated to nephrolithiasis with a mutation of the CLCN5 gene has been identified, involving low molecular weight proteinuria - though this mutation has not been uniformly demonstrated in most cases of idiopathic hypercalciuria. The peculiarity of the cases described in the present study is attributable to the coexistence of IERR with normocalcemic hypercalciuria and nephrolithiasis - thus pointing to the need for in-depth evaluation of the possible association of these three clinical situations.  (+info)

Reduced bone mass in children with idiopathic hypercalciuria and in their asymptomatic mothers. (3/44)

BACKGROUND: Patients with nephrolithiasis and idiopathic hypercalciuria (IH) may exhibit reduced bone mineral density (BMD). Most studies measuring BMD in IH patients employing dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) have been performed in adults, and no study has been conducted in North-American children. Optimal bone mineral accretion during childhood and adolescence is critical to the attainment of a healthy adult skeleton. Bone mineral accretion and eventual adult peak bone mass are largely dependent on genetic factors. Hypercalciuria is also frequently linked to genetic determinants. Therefore, we carried out a cross-sectional evaluation of bone mineral metabolism in children with IH, and in their asymptomatic premenopausal mothers. METHODS: Quantitative BMD using DEXA was performed in 21 children with IH and in their asymptomatic mothers. Bone resorption was assessed by measuring the urinary concentrations of pyridinoline and deoxypiridinoline. Simultaneous calcium-modulating hormonal determinations, including serum intact immunoreactive parathyroid hormone and 1,25(OH)(2)D(3), were performed. The expression of interleukin-1alpha (IL-1alpha) by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) was determined by polymerase chain reaction. RESULTS: Reduced BMD values were observed in eight children (38%) and in seven mothers (33%). The children of osteopenic mothers exhibited significantly reduced BMD Z-score values of lumbar spine (P<0.05) when compared with children of mothers with normal BMD. Bone resorption markers were normal in most children with IH. Hypercalciuria was detected in five out of 20 (25%) asymptomatic mothers and it correlated (r=-0.81) to femoral BMD in mothers with osteopenia. The expression of IL-1alpha mRNA by PBMCs from IH children did not differ from controls. CONCLUSIONS: Reduced BMD was detected in a large proportion of children with IH. Hypercalciuria and reduced BMD were uncovered in a substantial number of their otherwise healthy asymptomatic mothers. The diminished BMD in adults with IH may start early in life, could be influenced by genetic factors, and may represent a risk factor for osteoporosis later in life.  (+info)

Epithelial Ca(2+) channel (ECAC1) in autosomal dominant idiopathic hypercalciuria. (4/44)

BACKGROUND: The epithelial Ca(2+) channel (ECaC) exhibits the defining properties for being the gatekeeper in 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3)-regulated Ca(2+) (re)absorption. Its recently cloned human orthologue (ECaC1) could, therefore, represent a crucial molecule in human disorders related to Ca(2+)-wasting such as idiopathic hypercalciuria (IH). METHODS: Fifty-seven members of nine families with IH were investigated. Phenotyping was performed by measurements of urinary Ca(2+) excretion, while other underlying disorders were appropriately excluded. Initially, the recently suggested locus for kidney stone-associated hypercalciuria on chromosome 1q23.3-q24 was investigated. Next, direct mutation analysis of all 15 exons of the ECAC1 gene and 2.9 kb upstream from the start codon was performed. hECaC1, heterologously expressed in human embryonic kidney 293 cells, was characterized by patch-clamp analysis. RESULTS: The mode of inheritance in the studied pedigrees is consistent with an autosomal dominant trait. Haplotype analysis did not implicate a role of the locus on chromosome 1. The coding sequence of the ECAC1 gene was not different between the affected and the non-affected family members. In the 5'-flanking region, three single nucleotide polymorphisms were encountered, but these polymorphisms were observed regardless of the affection status of the screened family members. Patch-clamp analysis of hECaC1 was performed as the putative pore region contains four non-conserved amino acid substitutions compared with the other species. This analysis revealed the distinctive properties of ECaC, including a high Ca(2+) selectivity, inward rectification, and Ca(2+)-dependent inactivation. CONCLUSION: These results do not support a primary role for hECaC1 in IH in nine affected families. Because of the heterogeneity of the disease, however, the involvement of ECaC1 in other subtypes of IH cannot be excluded and needs further investigation. The electrophysiological properties of hECaC1 further substantiate its prime role in Ca(2+) (re)absorption.  (+info)

Urinary calcium excretion in children with vesicoureteral reflux. (5/44)

BACKGROUND: Renal malformations including vesico-ureteral reflux (VUR) are associated with urolithiasis. However, studies on urinary calcium excretion in children with VUR have not been reported. This study was conducted to find out whether children with VUR have a higher prevalence of hypercalciuria and whether their family members are affected by hypercalciuria and/or urolithiasis. METHODS: We studied the prevalence of hypercalciuria and urolithiasis in 46 children (12 males and 34 females) with VUR and in their parents. RESULTS: Three out of 46 children had renal colic and nine out of 46 exhibited calyceal microlithiasis in the renal sonography. According to Stapleton's criteria, we found that 27 out of 46 children (58.6%) had hypercalciuria. These children were significantly shorter than children with normal calciuria and showed lower values of maximal urinary osmolality. We found no differences in urinary calcium excretion values related to the VUR grading, or to the presence or absence of renal scars, or to whether VUR was still unresolved or already resolved at the time of study. Seventeen out of 27 children with hypercalciuria (63%) had one or both parents affected by hypercalciuria, and there was a history of urolithiasis in six first-degree relatives and in four second-degree relatives (37%). Besides, 10 out of 19 children without hypercalciuria (52.6%) had one or both parents affected by hypercalciuria and there was a history of urolithiasis in three first-degree relatives and in three second-degree relatives (31.6%). Among the 27 children whose parents had hypercalciuria, four had both parents affected, 19 had only the mother affected and in four patients only the father was affected. CONCLUSION: Our results showed that the prevalence of hypercalciuria was greater in paediatric patients with VUR than in the general population. Urolithiasis in patients with VUR had a metabolic origin. Hypercalciuria was inherited as an autosomal dominant trait although with a higher probability to be inherited from the mother.  (+info)

Disruption of the caveolin-1 gene impairs renal calcium reabsorption and leads to hypercalciuria and urolithiasis. (6/44)

Using LoxP/Cre technology, we generated a knockout mouse homozygous for a null mutation in exon 2 of Cav1. In male Cav1-/- animals, we observed a dramatic increase in the incidence of urinary calcium stone formation. In 5-month-old male mice, the incidence of early urinary calculi was 67% in Cav1-/- mice compared to 19% in Cav1+/+ animals. Frank stone formation was observed in 13% of Cav1-/- males but was not seen in Cav1+/+ mice. Urine calcium concentration was significantly higher in Cav1-/- male mice compared to Cav1+/+ mice. In Cav1-/- mice, distal convoluted tubule cells were completely devoid of Cav1 and the localization of plasma membrane calcium ATPase was disrupted. Functional studies confirmed that active calcium absorption was significantly reduced in Cav1-/- compared to Cav1+/+ male mice. These results demonstrate that disruption of the Cav1 gene promotes the progressive steps required for urinary calcium stone formation and establish a new mouse model for urinary stone disease.  (+info)

Quantitative trait loci for hypercalciuria in a rat model of kidney stone disease. (7/44)

Hypercalciuria is the most common risk factor for kidney stones and has a recognized familial component. The genetic hypercalciuric stone-forming (GHS) rat is an animal model that closely resembles human idiopathic hypercalciuria, with excessive intestinal calcium absorption, increased bone resorption, and impaired renal calcium reabsorption; overexpression of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) in target tissues; and calcium nephrolithiasis. For identifying genetic loci that contribute to hypercalciuria in the GHS rat, an F2 generation of 156 rats bred from GHS female rats and normocalciuric WKY male rats was studied. The calcium excretion was six- to eightfold higher in the GHS female than in the WKY male progenitors. Selective genotyping of those F2 rats with the highest 30% and lowest 30% rates of calcium excretion was performed, scoring 98 markers with a mean interval of 23 cM across all 20 autosomes and the X chromosome. With the use of strict criteria for significance, significant linkage was found between hypercalciuria and a region of chromosome 1 at D1Rat169 (LOD, 2.91). Suggestive linkage to regions of chromosomes 4, 7, 10, and 14 was found. The proportion of phenotypic variance contributed by the region on chromosome 1, with appropriate adjustments, was estimated to be 7%. Candidate genes encoding the VDR and the calcium-sensing receptor were localized to regions on rat chromosomes 7 and 11, respectively, but the suggestive quantitative trait locus on chromosome 7 was not in the region of the VDR gene locus. Identification of genes that contribute to hypercalciuria in this animal model should prove valuable in understanding idiopathic hypercalciuria and kidney stone disease in humans.  (+info)

Hypercalciuria is a common and important finding in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. (8/44)

OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN: The prevalence and the effects of hypercalciuria on bone in patients with primary osteoporosis are poorly defined. We therefore retrospectively analyzed the data of 241 otherwise healthy women. They were 45-88 years of age and had been referred for their first visit to our Unit for Metabolic Bone Diseases over a 2-year period because of primary osteoporosis (bone density T-score < -2.5). METHODS: The main parameters of calcium and skeletal metabolism had been analyzed in all subjects. This population was then divided into two groups, according to the presence (HC+) or absence (HC-) of hypercalciuria. RESULTS: Elevated urinary calcium was present in 19% of the subjects. Due to the selection criteria, spinal and femoral bone loss was similar in the two groups. Urinary calcium, phosphate and fractional calcium excretion were higher in hypercalciuric patients. In a logistic regression model, the higher the Tm of phosphate, the lower the risk of hypercalciuria (odds ratio 0.33, confidence interval 0.18-0.62). On the contrary, hypercalciuria was the most important predictor of low bone mass in HC+ (accounting for more than 50% of the variance in spinal bone density). CONCLUSIONS: Hypercalciuria is a common feature in postmenopausal bone loss. Since increased urinary calcium excretion and low bone mass appear to be linked, hypercalciuria seems to be an important determinant of reduced bone density in this setting as well.  (+info)

To define the mechanism for the hypercalciuria in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR), Ca clearance was evaluated in fasted 23-wk-old SHR and normotensive Wistar Kyoto (WKy) controls. There was no exaggerated calciuria before or after parathyroidectomy. Ca balance was therefore measured in the nonfasted animals, which revealed hyperabsorption in SHR of both sexes with increments 10-fold that of Ca excretion, supporting the primacy of intestinal hyperabsorption. In situ duodenal Ca uptake was also increased in the SHR. Parathyroidectomy did not affect the hyperabsorption. Hypercalcemia (total and ionized) and hypercalciuria in SHR associated with reduced adenosine 3,5-cyclic monophosphate excretion, were abolished by fasting. Correction of hypertension for 6 mo failed to abolish the hypercalciuria. Bone Ca deposits were increased in 1-yr-old SHR. Ten-week-old SHR, in contrast, displayed mild malabsorption. Our data do not support the renal leak hypothesis. Instead, the adult SHR is ...
Introduction: A 30-year-old female patient with inherited osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) Type 1 was referred due to hypercalcaemia and suspicion of primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). She had serum ca2+ 1.56 mmol/L, serum parathyroid hormone 115 ng/ml (, 70), and pHPT was diagnosed, but no scan uptake. By exploratory neck surgery, all parathyroid glands were hyperplastic and 3 ½ parathyroid + thymus were removed. The HPT was hypothesised to be due to abnormal calcium metabolism from OI (J Endocrinol Invest 1999), although not described previously ...
The answer will be different biochemically speaking for different people, different metabolic types and different imbalances. But as a general rule, bone fractures are related to calcium metabolism inefficiency, specifically as pertains to mineral balance and pH. Good calcium metabolism requires: sufficient calcium levels, sufficient calcium metabolism synergistic factors (primarily magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin C , E and B6), sufficient sympathetic strength/tone and sufficient pH acidity (an over-alkaline pH will cause calcium to precipitate out of solution and be deposited.). So good calcium metabolism requires sufficient levels of calcium, but beyond the quantitative presence of calcium, the availability of synergistic factors must also be present for proper qualitative calcium utilization. Any one or all of the above factors can be involved. The proper Metabolic Typing interpretation of a hair tissue mineral analysis can be useful in targeting the causal factors. With different ...
This paper reviews the regulation of calcium metabolism in man. The bodys calcium economy is determined by the relationship between the intestinal absorption of calcium, the renal handling of calcium, and by the movements of calcium in and out of the skeleton. These processes are influenced by many factors, the most important of which are parathyroid hormone and the hormones derived from the renal metabolism of vitamin D, notably 1,24-dihydroxyvitamin D3. The role of endogenous calcitonin in man is still controversial, but there are several other hormones which have some influence on calcium metabolism, including thyroid hormone, growth hormone, and the adrenal and gonadal steroids. Clinical disorders of calcium metabolism and their treatment are discussed in terms of the disturbances in normal physiology they represent.

1. Because urinary prostaglandin excretion could play a role in idiopathic hypercalciuria (IH), we studied the excretion of prostaglandin E (PGE), calcium and sodium at various urine flows in 21 patients (14 males) with urolithiasis and IH, seven stone formers (five males) with normal calciuria and 20 controls (11 males). Dietary composition was comparable and sodium intake was restricted to 100-120 mmol/day.. 2. Analyses were performed on 30 min urine collections obtained after overnight water deprivation and during water diuresis. Male IH patients had increased levels of urinary PGE at all ranges of urine flow. PGE excretion correlated directly with urine flow in patients and controls, but the slope of this relationship in individual IH male patients was steeper than in controls (P , 0.01). Calciuria correlated directly with urine output in patients with IH but not in controls. Calcium and sodium excretion were directly correlated (P , 0.0001) in patients and controls. There were no ...

The majority of patients with sarcoidosis in this large series have had a number of biochemical investigations performed. Abnormal calcium metabolism was demonstrated in 40% of the patients but permanent renal damage due to nephrocalcinosis as a result of persistent derangement of calcium metabolism was rare. Raised immunoglobulin levels were seen. Half the white and two-thirds of the West Indian patients had elevated IgG levels. Abnormal immunoglobulin levels carried no obvious diagnostic or prognostic significance. Raised alkaline phosphatase levels reflected space-occupying hepatic granulomas and occurred in 23% of patients. Serum angiotensin converting enzyme (SACE) was elevated in half the patients. The highest SACE activity was found in patients with severe parenchymal lung infiltration due to sarcoidosis, and the lowest levels in those with inactive disease or after successful management with steroid drugs. SACE levels were not significantly elevated in four other granulomatous ...

If all 195 suspicious cases of IH had delivered 24-hrs urine samples we would have 42 cases of IH ...
A new method, based on computer-assisted kinetic analysis of 45Ca efflux data, was used to measure calcium contents and fluxes for extracellular and intracellular compartments in intact segments of rabbit aorta. After a 1-hour loading period, efflux data were collected for 8 hours using a flow-through tissue chamber. These long-term effluxes were necessary because information on intracellular calcium metabolism was concentrated in the slow components of the efflux curves while earlier components appeared to be dominated by washout of extracellular calcium. Intracellular compartments were identified as those whose calcium contents were altered by 10 microM phenylephrine. This method complements previous approaches by providing simultaneous estimates of compartmental calcium contents and fluxes without requiring the assumption of isotopic equilibrium and without recourse to standard wash techniques for removal of extracellular calcium.

A real bathtub has two drains. The one at the bottom is the one you can open or close. The other one, up near the top, is to keep the tub from flooding your bathroom if someone inattentive leaves the faucets open. This second drain is about the level where most people would want their bath water. It has to be. To keep the water line above the open waste overflow drain would require both faucets be wide open.. Fill up a bathtub part way, with the bottom drain and both the hot and cold faucets partly open. Be careful to bring the water level to below the upper drain as we want it to be out of the picture. Wait until the water level is steady.. Call the cold tap inflow from diet, and the hot tap inflow from bone. The drain is the kidneys, the flow through the drain is the urine calcium excretion. The height of the water in the tub is the blood calcium concentration. Because the water level is steady the flow out of the drain equals the sum of water coming in from the hot and cold water taps ...

PY - 1993/10. Y1 - 1993/10. N2 - Vitamin D receptor (VDR) concentration was quantitated in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from patients with absorptive hypercalciuria (AH) and patients with high 1,25(OH)2D3 due to acquired or transient disease states and the results compared to those in normal subjects. VDR concentration in resting cells was not different between the three groups and represented constitutive receptor expression of monocytes. Following activation with phytohemagglutinin, patients with hypercalcitriolemia demonstrated significantly greater VDR concentrations. Patients with AH demonstrated a normal value for the group, but 6 patients had significantly greater concentrations of VDR despite normal plasma 1,25(OH)2D3 in four of the patients. Proliferation, as assessed ...

You can develop a metabolic disorder if certain organs - for instance, the pancreas or the liver - stop functioning properly. These kinds of disorders can be a result of genetics, a deficiency in a certain hormone or enzyme, consuming too much of certain foods, or a number of other factors.. There are hundreds of genetic metabolic disorders caused by mutations of single genes. These mutations can be passed down through generations of families. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), certain racial or ethnic groups are more likely to pass on mutated genes for particular inborn disorders. The most common of these are:. ...

INTRODUCTION: The incidence of pediatric nephrolithiasis (kidney stones) has been increasing over the past several years. While environmental factors, such as poor fluid intake, high-salt diet, and obesity, can play a role, underlying metabolic factors account for at least one-third of cases of nephrolithiasis. Nephrolithiasis and related disorders, such as nephrocalcinosis and hypercalciuria, can lead to long-term kidney problems, including renal scarring, acute and chronic kidney disease, decreased renal function, or end-stage renal disease. The best treatment is prevention and is best guided by knowing the underlying cause. The majority of kidney stones are primarily comprised of calcium, and abnormal calcium metabolism and regulation can lead to nephrolithiasis, nephrocalcinosis, and hypercalciuria. Vitamin D is an important factor in calcium regulation in the body. The physiologically active form of vitamin D is 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D), which increases serum calcium by ...
Etiology: Band keratopathy derives its name from the distinctive appearance of calcium deposition in a band across the central cornea. Band keratopathy can occur from a variety of causes, both systemic and local. Bank keratopathy is associated with chronic corneal edema (perhaps the most common treatable cause accounting for over 1/4 of cases in one series), phthisis bulbi, chronic iridocyclitis, severe glaucoma, hyperparathyroidism, vitamin D excess, sarcoidosis or renal disease. The latter 4 are related to abnormal calcium metabolism. Severe dry eye may also precede band keratopathy. Herpes keratitis may predispose to band keratopathy. The use of phosphate salts in steroid preparations may precipitate calcium in patients with epithelial defects ...
My article on idiopathic hypercalciuria reviews the complex evolution of thought concerning pure absorptive vs. renal mechanisms and eventually comes to rest on a not unexpected consensus: High absorption and reduced renal calcium conservation both seem present. As a result people with IH will not in general - though there may be specific exceptions - tolerate low calcium diets without incurring risk of bone mineral loss. Until recently, in the absence of compelling evidence for a wide spread renal mechanism for hypercalciuria, low calcium diet was a common means for reducing calcium stone recurrence.. It is against that background that the Borghi trial needs to be analysed. The trial set out to compare …the traditional low calcium diet with that of a diet containing a normal amount of calcium but reduced amounts of animal protein and salt in terms of new calcium stone formation in patients with IH - unfortunately only men. One stated reason for the trial was data from Curhan showing ...
The effects of several lactones were studied in a microsomal fraction of dog myocardium thought to be sarcoplasmic reticulum. The lactones increased the steady-state accumulation and turnover of calcium only in the presence of ATP, and augmented the calcium-stimulated ATPase activity. When the effective concentrations of the lactones were exceeded, there were no further alterations in calcium accumulation or turnover. A correlation between the capacity of these lactones to increase calcium accumulation and turnover and their relative cardiotonic activity, as reported in the literature, was noted. The potency of the lactones in relation to calcium metabolism in the microsomes is influenced by ring saturation, position of the double bond, and presence of a steroid ring system to the lactone moiety.. ...
