A comparison between the balance method and radiotracer methods for measuring calcium absorption in treated and untreated patients with osteoporosis

Abstract:

Measurements of calcium absorption by the balance method and by the double tracer, multiple blood sampling radiocalcium tracer method were synchronized in 48 studies in 35 patients with osteoporosis. In the patients who were studied twice, results were obtained before and during treatment. Significant correlations were obtained between fractional dietary calcium absorption and three measures of the rate of 47Ca absorption : the maximum rate of absorption (M.A.R.) and mean rate of absorption (...
