Earlier studies have shown that an oral sodium (Na) load may induce hypercalciuria in previously normocalciuric subjects and may also increase intestinal calcium (Ca) absorption. To probe the cause of the increased intestinal Ca absorption, we simultaneously measured parathyroid function, serum 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25-(OH)2D], and fractional intestinal 47Ca absorption before and after a salt load. Eleven normal subjects and two patients with postsurgical hypoparathyroidism were placed on… CONTINUE READING
