  1. Epidemiological evidence for the disruption of ionized calcium homeostasis in the elderly.

    Article - En anglais

    Ionized calcium (Ca2+), phosphate, albumin, total calcium, and pH measurements taken from participants in a large population-based epidemiological study were examined to determine the change in physiological variation with age for persons over 43 years old.

    Only Ca2+showed a statistically significant increase in SD with age (p<0.0001).

    The Ca 2+coefficients of variation (CV) increased from 2.92% in the youngest age group (43-54 years) to 3.69% in the oldest age group (75-86 years of age).

    In females, the increase in Ca2+variability was nearly complete by age 55.

    Males also showed a significant (p=0.006) increase in SD between the 43-54 age group and the 55-64 age group, however, Ca2+variability did not plateau after age 55 in men as it did in women.

    In the 43-54 (p=0.04) and 55-64 (p=0.03) age group men showed significantly better physiological control of Ca+than women.

    Phosphate showed a slight decrease in CV with age.

    These data suggest that Ca2+homeostasis is disrupted in the same age groups that are most vulnerable to osteoporosis.
