Adding Phosphorus to Osteoporosis Drug Treatment

Osteoporosis causes bones to weaken and break more easily. Calcium and phosphorus are two minerals that are essential for normal bone formation. Unfortunately, calcium salts commonly presc...

The Effect of Alendronate, Calcium, and Vitamin D on Bone Mineral Density in HIV Infected Patients

Alendronate is a drug that is used to treat osteoporosis. The purpose of this study is to examine whether alendronate in combination with calcium and vitamin D is safe and effective for tr...

Vitamin D, Insulin Resistance, and Cardiovascular Disease

In recent years, vitamin D has been shown not only to be important for bone and calcium metabolism but also for homeostasis of critical tissues involved in vascular disease in patients wit...

Effect of 1 Year Vitamin D or D Plus B-vitamins on Bone Markers in Elderly People (KnoVIB)

The standard recommendation to prevent osteoporosis is to supplement low doses of vitamin D and calcium. Hyperhomocysteinemia has been related to increased risk of osteoporosis.

Bone Density in Children With IBD Treated With Amorphous Calcium or Commercial Crystalline Calcium

Patients diagnosed with, or in risk of osteoporosis regularly take calcium dietary supplements, although their contribution to BMD maintenance, prevention of bone loss or reduction of the ...

Stimulation of intestinal calcium absorption by orally administrated vitamin D3 compounds: a prospective open-label randomized trial in osteoporosis.

Intestinal fractional calcium absorption (FCA) was assessed before and after vitamin D3 treatment. Serum 1,25(OH)2D concentration was significantly increased by plain vitamin D3 and reduced by eldecal...

Magnesium-zinc-calcium-vitamin D co-supplementation improves glycemic control and markers of cardio-metabolic risk in gestational diabetes: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.

To the best our knowledge, data on the effects of magnesium-zinc-calcium-vitamin D co-supplementation on glycemic control and markers of cardio-metabolic risk in gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) ar...

Association of interleukin-6 (rs1800796) but not transforming growth factor beta 1 (rs1800469) with serum calcium levels in osteoporotic patients.

Osteoporosis is a multifactorial disease with a strong genetic influence. Recent studies have demonstrated that cytokines, such as TGF-β1 and interleukin 6 (IL-6) play complex roles in the normal bon...

Disturbances of calcium metabolism and vitamin D supplementation in sarcoidosis - two-way street.

The role of vitamin D in the human body is not limited only to the regulation of calcium metabolism and secondary to the impact on bones. Recent studies have shown the influence of vitamin D level on ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Carbonic acid calcium salt (CaCO3). An odorless, tasteless powder or crystal that occurs in nature. It is used therapeutically as a phosphate buffer in hemodialysis patients and as a calcium supplement.

Reduction of bone mass without alteration in the composition of bone, leading to fractures. Primary osteoporosis can be of two major types: postmenopausal osteoporosis (OSTEOPOROSIS, POSTMENOPAUSAL) and age-related or senile osteoporosis.

A field of chemistry which pertains to chemical compounds or ions that do not contain the element carbon (with the exception of carbon dioxide and compounds containing a carbonate radical, e.g., calcium carbonate).

Calcium compounds used as food supplements or in food to supply the body with calcium. Dietary calcium is needed during growth for bone development and for maintenance of skeletal integrity later in life to prevent osteoporosis.

A protein that plays a fundamental role in the Vitamin D mediated transport of calcium in reptiles, amphibians, birds and mammals. It is found in the intestine, kidneys, egg shell gland, brain, and possibly other organs. Its molecular weight is species dependent.
