Dietary salt and urinary calcium excretion in a human bed rest spaceflight model.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Dietary salt is known to increase the excretion of urinary calcium (Ca). To determine the potential role of dietary sodium (Na) on the calciuria associated with a spaceflight simulation model, we evaluated urinary Ca in two groups of bed rest subjects fed either high or low normal amounts of salt. METHODS We analyzed urinary Ca excretion… (More)
