Parathyroid Hormone and Calcitonin
Calcitonin and Calcitriol

  • This is another molecule that acts in opposition to calcitonin.
  • Calcitriol (1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3) is a by-product of vitamin D and is produced in the kidneys. Parathyroid hormone, low calcium, and low phosphate levels trigger its production [R].
  • Calcitriol increases calcium levels in the blood and can slow the progression of chronic kidney disease and decrease protein levels in the urine [R].
  • However, high levels of calcitriol can cause hypercalcemia (elevated calcium levels) [R].
  • The main function of calcitriol is to increase the uptake absorption of calcium from the gut. It also works together with parathyroid hormone [R].
  • In patients with medullary thyroid cancer, calcitriol reduces the production of calcitonin [R].
