Effects of Systemic pH on Calcium Regulating Hormones and Bone
Bone disease has long been recognized as a potential complication of chronic acidotic states1. By far the commonest of these is uremic acidosis, a situation in which deranged bone and mineral metabolism is invariably present. However, attempts to treat uremic bone disease by correction of an associated metabolic acidosis have been consistently unsuccessful2, suggesting that factors other than systemic pH dominate the pathophysiology of this disease.
