The fraction of calcium absorbed from the gut (fractional calcium absorption) varies widely from person to person, ranging from 10% to 70% (1-3). Cross-sectional studies in postmenopausal women have suggested that fractional calcium absorption increases with decreasing dietary calcium intake and decreases with advancing age (1, 4). It has been hypothesized that decreased ability to absorb calcium with age limits adaptation to low calcium intake and leads to secondary hyperparathyroidism… CONTINUE READING
