Disorders of Bone and Calcium Homeostasis

AUTHOR:
Joseph Mort
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  1. Understand the regulation of calcium homeostasis including the role of parathyroid hormone, cholecalciferol, and calcitonin.
  2. Recognize the symptoms of hypercalcemia and hypocalcemia and list possible causes.
  3. Differentiate between primary, secondary, and tertiary hyperparathyroidism by the underlying mechanism and levels of calcium, phosphate, PTH, and vitamin D.
  4. Identify the clinical features of hypoparathyroidism.
  5. List risk factors for vitamin D deficiency and recognize the typical clinical features for both children and adults.
  6. Explain how osteoporosis is defined and know screening recommendations, risk factors, and potential complications of this disorder.
  7. Be familiar with medications used for the treatment of osteoporosis.
  8. Identify the pathogenesis and clinical features of Paget’s disease of the bone and potential complications.
