Abstract

Analysis of calcium tolerance is suggested to represent a valuable diagnostic aid in osteoporosis, particularly in the menopause. The serum calcium level was found to exceed 11.0 mg/dl 60 min after the intravenous injection of 3.6 mg per kg body weight of Ca++ in all patients with osteoporosis, while the level was normal at that point of time in every subject without osteoporosis, including patients with bone disease other than osteoporosis. Administration of norandrosterone decanoate or dehydroepiandrosterone to patients with menopausal osteoporosis resulted in normalization of the postload hypercalcaemia. Calcium tolerance of menopausal patients without osteoporosis was not affected by dehydroepiandrosterone.
