Much of calcium and phosphorus used to support skeletal ossification during prenatal and postnatal mammalian development are derived from the mobilization of maternal bone minerals. As a result, bone loss has been observed in the maternal skeleton during the reproductive cycle. In order to maintain their skeletal integrity, ensure survival, and continue future reproduction, mothers must be able to prevent excessive bone loss. The goal of our research was to evaluate how the number of… Expand
