The current treatment for FGF23-dependant HR is oral phosphate replacement and calcitriol which have potential treatment complications such as calciuria and nephrocalcinosis.
There, the S-Ca, S-P, total S-ALP, PTH, phosphaturia and calciuria were all normal, as was the wrist X-ray.
a linear association between changes in calcium excretion in response to experimental changes in net acid excretion," the authors added that this was "not evidence that the source of the excreted calcium is bone or that this calciuria contributes to the development of osteoporosis." (29)
Last but not the least, high-salt dietary may cause osteoporosis and the hypothesis raised is that the calciuria is partly due to salt-induced volume expansion which causes excretion of parathyroid hormone leading to bone remodeling.[sup][91] In fact, the adult human body contains 90–130 g sodium, roughly half of that stored in bone.
Dentro de los resultados de laboratorio realizados a los pacientes clasificados con hematuria microscopica intermitente o persistente monosintomatica (13 pacientes), solo 2 (15.3%) pacientes tenian valores de calciuria elevados para su edad.
The laboratory investigation showed hypercalcemia associated with high PTH levels (4000 pg/ml), elevated total alkaline phosphatase (636 UI/L), low serum phosphorus level (2.5 mg/dl), creatinine clearance of 57 ml/mn, microcytic hypochromic anemia, proteinuria, high calciuria (638.4 mg/24h).
The aim of our present study is to analyze calcium metabolism and calciuria in postmenopausal women with osteoporotic fracture and without renal stones compared to women without osteoporosis and without renal stones.
The patients were also tested for ionized calcium, creatinine clearance, calciuria and creatinuria in an isolated sample.
Urinary calcium excretion is usually higher in children than in adults, because calciuria tapers with decreasing renal function [2].
2008), the Cd-associated calciuria is most likely a result of increased bone resorption, rather than decreased tubular reabsorption, which would instead have resulted in a compensatory increase in parathyroid hormone.
Urine examination also revealed phosphaturia (P[O.sub.4] =35.5 mmol/24 hours) and calciuria ([Ca.sup.2+] = 17.4 mmol/24 hours).
Despite some studies showing that high intakes of animal protein may trigger calciuria, or excess calcium in the urine, other research points out that a high-protein diet can actually increase intestinal calcium absorption.
(16) Carefully monitoring of alkaline phosphatase, serum calcium and calciuria is necessary to prevent hypercalcemia in these patients.
