Calciotrophic hormone levels and calcium absorption during pregnancy in rats.

Abstract

The mammalian maternal skeleton stores Ca during pregnancy perhaps for fetal skeletal mineralization in late pregnancy and milk production during lactation. The interrelationships between intestinal Ca absorption and hypertrophy and plasma levels of total Ca, ionized Ca, 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 [25(OH)D], 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D], and parathyroid… (More)
