1. The effects of vitamin D and its hydroxylated derivatives on calcium and magnesium absorption have been examined in 47 balance studies on patients with various disorders of calcium or bone metabolism. 2. Vitamin D significantly increased the mean net absorption of calcium and also the calcium balance. The mean net absorption of magnesium was also significantly increased although the rise was much less than that of calcium and the mean magnesium balance was unaffected. 3. It is suggested that… Expand
Vitamin D and plasma magnesium in pregnancy.
Administration of vitamin D or its hydroxylated metabolites significantly increased the net absorption of magnesium, though to a smaller extent than that of calcium in patients with a variety of disorders of calcium and bone metabolism. Expand
The interrelationship of calcium and magnesium absorption in idiopathic hypercalciuria and renal calcium stone disease.
The results of this study indicate that the oral supplementation of magnesium in patients with hyperabsorptive hypercalciuria and renal calcium stone disease is favorable because it decreases calcium absorption and increases magnesium absorption. Expand
Rise in serum calcium and magnesium concentrations after vitamin D administration in hypocalcaemic hypomagnesaemic magnesium deficiency.
A patient with hypocalcaemia and hypomagnesaemia secondary to small bowel resection and malabsorption was treated with synthetic vitamin D analogue, 1-alpha hydroxy vitamin D3 and changes in extracellular fluid composition presumably resulted from enhanced calcium and magnesium absorption associated with vitamin D activity.

CHAPTER 48 – Magnesium Deficiency in Parathyroid Function
This chapter focuses on effect of magnesium (Mg) deficiency in parathyroid function. Though acute changes in the extracellular Mg concentrations influence parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretionExpand
Disorders of Calcium, Phosphate, and Magnesium Metabolism
There have been substantial recent advances in the pathophysiology of calcium, phosphate, and magnesium disorders. These include the identification of novel transport pathways for magnesium,Expand
Disorders of Magnesium Homeostasis and Magnesium in Therapy
Magnesium, atomic weight 24.3, is the fourth most abun­dant metal in living organisms; next to potassium, it is the most prevalent intracellular cation. Magnesium is abun­dant in all livingExpand

Osteoporosis is extremely common in alcoholics whereas osteomalacia is exceptional, however, both bone disorders respond well to vitamin D therapy. Expand
Influence of magnesium supplementation on bone turnover in the normal young mouse
The results show that Mg supplementation influenced both bone formation and resorption in the young mouse, and that the stimulation of bone mineralization was the result of increased extracellular mineral availability. Expand
Neonatal Calcium and Phosphorus Metabolism
This chapter reviews the physiologic basis of bone mineral metabolism in continuity from fetus to neonate with a greater appreciation of the complex interrelations among the major mineral components of bone. Expand
