A human metabolic study was conducted to observe the effect of level of protein intake on urinary calcium, calcium absorption and calcium balance in older adults and to further study the mechanisms of protein-induced hypercalciuria. An increase in protein intake from about 47 to 112 g while maintaining calcium, magnesium and phosphorus intakes constant caused an increase in urinary calcium and a decrease in calcium retention. Glomerular filtration rate was increased and fractional renal tubular… CONTINUE READING
