Brief Summary:
Osteoporosis (op) is a disorder of bone characterized by reduced mineral density and bone mass. The first step in the prevention and treatment of Op is ensuring adequate intake of calcium and vitamin D . While calcium supplementations clearly slow bone loss in both sexes,their effects on fracture risk are less certain. In contrast to the above a recent randomized, placebo controlled trial in 1471 postmenopausal women (mean age 74) reported in the BMJ (2 February 2008) found an increased rate of vascular events in healthy older women receiving calcium supplementation. The mechanism is not clear .we are trying to identify a possible correlation between calcium intake and calcium cardiac scoring .
