Calcium (Ca) absorption is reportedly stimulated in the ileum of glucocorticoid-treated rats. Our study was designed to investigate this phenomenon in the chick; to determine to what extent any stimulation might compensate for inhibition of Ca absorption in the duodenum; and to compare any changes seen with those caused by growth retardation induced by dietary restriction alone. We assessed CA absorption from different sites in the intestine of chicks treated with betamethasone (BM; 25… CONTINUE READING
