Calcium and Phosphate Regulation

Overview
  • Calcium and Phosphate levels are regulated through the coordinated action of three hormonal systems that include Vitamin D, Parathyroid Hormone (PTH), and Calcitonin. We first discuss the contributions of each hormone to calcium and phosphate regulation independently and then describe how all three hormones are coordinated in an integrated fashion to achieve stable levels of calcium and phosphate.
