INTRODUCTION Calcium (Ca) and phosphorus (P) are considered together because they constitute the major part of the mineral content of bone. They are very closely related; a deficiency or an excess of one wi11 interfere with the proper utilization of the other. The Ca: P ratio in the bone is slightly greater than 2: 1 and is approximately constant.

INTESTINAL EFFECTS Vitamin 0 stimulates active transport of Ca and P across intestinal epithelium. This stimulation does not involve PTH directly but involves the active form of vitamin D. PTH indirectly stimulates intestinal Ca absorption by stimulating production of 1,25-(OHhD under conditions of hypocalcemia. In humans, as the body becomes vitamin 0 insufficient, the efficiency of intestinal Ca absorption decreases from 30 to 50% to no more than 15%. The mechanism whereby vitamin 0 stimulates Ca and P absorption is still not completely understood.

CALCIUM The 1% of the body's Ca located outside of the bone is found in extracellular fluid, soft tissue, and as a component of various membrane structures (Bronner, 1997). Nonskeletal Ca occurs as the free ion bound to serum proteins and complexed to organic and inorganic acids. Calcium is essential for normal blood clotting; the Ca ion must be present for prothrombin to form thrombin, which reacts with fibrinogen to form the blood clot, fibrin (McDowell, 2000).
