Calcitonin Hormones
About Calcitonin

Calcitoninis a 32-amino acid linear polypeptide hormone produced primarily by the parafollicular cells (known as C-cells) of the thyroid gland. Its primary function is to regulate calcium levels in our bodies and is predominantly involved in the production of bone. It counteracts the effects of parathyroid hormone (PTH).

Why Optimize Calcitonin Levels with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
We use calcitonin widely for bone and cartilage preservation as well as effective pain relief in combination with other hormones. We find calcitonin to be a very valuable adjunct in treating several other conditions as well.
  • Inhibit Ca2+ absorption by the intestines
  • Slows down osteoclast activity in bones
  • Decrease renal tubular cell reabsorption of Ca2+ allowing it to be secreted in urine
  • Decrease phosphate reabsorption by the renal tubules
  • Protect against calcium loss from skeleton during periods of calcium mobilization during pregnancy and lactation
  • Prevent postprandial hypercalcemia resulting from intestinal absorption of Ca2+
  • Inhibits food intake and may have CNS action involving the regulation of feeding and appetite
  • Suppress appetite
  • Incite a chondroprotective effect in osteoarthritis
  • Decrease irritability and hyperactivity in patients suffering from mania and bipolar disorder
