The major minerals that are measured in chemistry testing are:
Calcium and phosphate homeostasis involves the interrelated actions of the following hormones: Parathyroid hormone (PTH), vitamin D
metabolites, and calcitonin. These work their magic on bone, the intestine and kidneys to regulate calcium and phosphate concentrations in blood. Magnesium we know less about. In the overview
, we cover the hormones involved in calcium and phosphate hemostasis, including parathyroid hormone, parathyroid hormone-related peptide, vitamin D (briefly, it also has its own page), fibroblast growth factor 23 and calcitonin.
