Prednisone effected a dramatic reduction in both mean serum calcium levels and mean 24-hour urinary calcium(More)

Cortisol responses to insulin-induced hypoglycemia and synthetic ACTH before treatment(More)
A patient is presented who developed hepatic osteodystrophy after orthotopic liver transplantation in association with persistently low serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels. After successful liver transplantation there was a delay in the return to normal of the serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels until oral supplementation with vitamin D was instituted. This case(More)
Twenty-six patients being evaluated for renovascular hypertension were studied to assess the diagnostic value of enhancing the differential between renal venous renins (PRA) by a single 25 mg oral dose of converting enzyme inhibitor (CEI, captopril). Antihypertensive medications were not discontinued prior to the study, and renal venous effluent was sampled(More)
