A pilot study on the use of natural calcium isotope (44Ca/40Ca) fractionation in urine as a proxy for the human body calcium balance
Alexander Heuser (1,2), Anton Eisenhauer (2)
We explored the possibility of using natural calcium (Ca) isotope variations in the urine (δ44/40Ca urine) as a proxy for the Ca balance in the human body. We chose two test persons extremely different in their health status, gender and age (4-year-old healthy boy and a 60-year-old woman known to suffer from osteoporosis).
