The mediating role of the parathyroid gland in the effect of low calcium intake on blood pressure in the rat



The mediating role of the parathyroid gland in the effect of low calcium intake on blood pressure in the rat



Archivos Latinoamericanos de Nutricion 34(4): 666-675



At 56 days old 42 female Wistar rats had their parathyroids removed or a sham operation and were then given a normal diet or a diet free from calcium for 10 weeks. Intact rats given the Ca-free diet showed a significant increase in blood pressure but the parathyroidectomized (PT) rats on the same diet did not.
