Description 1 online resource (xi, 219 pages) : illustrations
Contents Nutritional requirements for calcium and vitamin D -- Physiology of vitamin D, calcium, and phosphate absorption -- Plasma and extracellular fluid calcium homeostasis in relation to metabolic bone disease : role of kidneys -- Calcium sensing receptors : coordinators of mineral metabolism and therapeutic targets for metabolic bone disorders -- Parathyroid hormone : its role in calcium and phosphate homeostasis -- Phosphate homeostasis and metabolic bone disease -- Vitamin D : activities of calcitonin -- Physiological actions of calcitonin -- Definition, diagnosis, and significance of osteoporosis
Summary "Physiology and medicine are interrelated disciplines, and this is perhaps nowhere more apparent than in the field of mineral metabolism. This book presents information on the physiological principles regulating the response of mineral homeostasis on genetic, molecular, environmental, and nutritional factors. Chapters cover calcium and vitamin D nutrition, intestinal calcium absorption, plasma calcium homeostasis, renal handling of calcium, calcium sensing receptors, plasma phosphate homeostasis, endocrine actions of vitamin D, parathyroid hormone, calcitonin, and the calcification process"-- Provided by publisher
