Vitamin D metabolites and parathyroid hormone in Cushing's syndrome: relationship to calcium and phosphorus homeostasis.

Abstract

We studied the effects of glucocorticoid excess on calcium and phosphorus homeostasis in relation to vitamin D metabolites and parathyroid hormone (PTH) in seven patients with spontaneous ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome. Remission of hypercortisolism resulted in a significant increase in tubular reabsorption of phosphate [from 76 +/- 4% to 89 +/- 2% (mean… (More)
