Changes in urinary fractional excretion (FE) of calcium and phosphate following treatment of hyperthyroid cats

Williams Tim , Elliott Jonathan , Syme Harriet

Hyperthyroid cats have elevated parathyroid hormone (PTH) concentrations and suppressed fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23) concentrations, both of which normalise following treatment of hyperthyroidism. PTH, FGF-23, and thyroid hormone can influence the renal reabsorption of calcium and phosphate. The aim of the present study was to assess the influence of hyperthyroidism on renal tubular function in cats indirectly, by comparing the FE of electrolytes in hyperthyroid cats w...
