Although it is well established that parathyroid hormone and phosphate are important regulators of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25(OH)2D] production, it remains unclear whether calcitonin affects vitamin D metabolism in vivo. Experiments were performed in the rat to determine the effect of chronic calcitonin infusion (0.2 U X h-1) on plasma levels of vitamin D metabolites and on calcium metabolism. Thyroparathyroidectomized animals fed a calcium-replete or calcium-free diet were studied for as… CONTINUE READING
