Frequently asked questions about Calcispray Nasal Spray
Q. Is calcitonin a steroid hormone/ peptide hormone/ bisphosphonate/ thyroid hormone?
Calcitonin is not a steroid hormone or a bisphosphonate. It occurs naturally in the body and is commercially available in the polypeptide hormone
Q. Is calcitonin effective for osteoporosis?
Calcitonin is a naturally occurring thyroid hormone which is used to prevent and to treat thinning and weakening of the bone (osteoporosis) in post-menopausal women
Q. Does calcitonin stimulate osteoclasts/ Inhibit osteoblast activity/ stimulate bone growth?
Osteoclast is a type of bone cell which carries out dissolution and absorption of bone. Calcitonin is a naturally occurring hormone secreted by thyroid gland in the body, which stops the activity of osteoclasts, thereby stopping bone removal by the osteoclasts. Whether calcitonin stimulates or promotes the bone formation or resorption by the osteoblasts is uncertain
Q. Does calcitonin cause cancer?
Long term treatment with calcitonin for osteoporosis and osteoarthritis has shown an increase in the risk of cancer in clinical trials
Q. Does calcitonin increases calcium levels?
Calcitonin does not increase calcium levels. It is a naturally occurring hormone secreted by the thyroid gland in the body, which is used to reduce high calcium levels in the blood (hypercalcemia) due to cancer
Q. Does calcitonin decreases phosphate?
Yes, calcitonin decreases phosphate resorption by direct action on the kidney.
