The metabolism of calcium is regulated by hormones: parathyroid hormone, (PTH) calcitonin (CT), and vitamin D metabolites. To study the physiologic role of these hormones during the process of fracture healing in humans, the blood levels of PTH, CT, 25-(OH)-D3, 24,25-(OH)2-D3, and calcium were determined in 13 young patients with fractures of long bones. The parameters were measured first on admission and again after six to eight weeks. A group of healthy volunteers of similar age and sex… CONTINUE READING
