OBJECTIVE We investigated the effect of hypokinesia (diminished movement) on muscle calcium (Ca(2+)) content with and without Ca(2+) supplementation and Ca(2+) loss with different muscle Ca(2+) deficiency; muscle Ca(2+) content, plasma Ca(2+) level, and Ca(2+) loss were measured. METHODS Studies were performed in 40 physically healthy male volunteers during a pre-experimental period of 30 d and an experimental period of 364 d. Subjects in equal numbers were assigned to one of four groups… CONTINUE READING
