We recently showed that excessive fructose consumption, already associated with numerous metabolic abnormalities, reduces rates of intestinal Ca(2+) transport. Using a rat lactation model with increased Ca(2+) requirements, we tested the hypothesis that mechanisms underlying these inhibitory effects of fructose involve reductions in renal synthesis of(More)
We recently discovered that chronic high fructose intake by lactating rats prevented adaptive increases in rates of active intestinal Ca(2+) transport and in levels of 1,25-(OH)2D3, the active form of vitamin D. Since sufficient Ca(2+) absorption is essential for skeletal growth, our discovery may explain findings that excessive consumption of sweeteners(More)
Excessive fructose consumption inhibits adaptive increases in intestinal Ca2+ transport in lactating and weanling rats with increased Ca2+ requirements by preventing the increase in serum levels of 1,25(OH)2D3. Here we tested the hypothesis that chronic fructose intake decreases 1,25(OH)2D3 levels independent of increases in Ca2+ requirements. Adult mice(More)
