  • Urinary calcium is dependent on glomerular filtration and the rate of tubular reabsorption of calcium.

Vitamin D3

  • Vitamin D 3 is absorbed in the intestine and transported by protein bonds in the blood to the liver (first hydroxylation) and to the kidney (second hydroxylation).
  • Non-hydroxylated vitamin D 3 is stored in reserve compartments such as fatty and muscle tissue.

Warnings and Precautions

  • In the event of prolonged immobilization accompanied by hypercalciuria and / or hypercalcemia, the Vitamin D-Calcium treatment should only be used upon resumption of mobilization.
  • In the event of long-term treatment, it is justified to control serum calcium, calciuria and renal function (creatinine clearance). It is advisable to reduce or temporarily interrupt the treatment if the calciuria exceeds 7.5 mmol / 24 h (300 mg / 24 h). This monitoring is particularly important in the elderly in the event of combined treatment with digitalis or thiazide diuretics (see section Interactions with other medicinal products and other forms of interactions ) and in patients frequently prone to renal stones. In case of hypercalcaemia or kidney function problems, the dose should be reduced or treatment interrupted.
  • In case of treatment combined with bisphosphonates or tetracyclines: see section Interactions with other medicinal products and other forms of interactions .
  • Take into account the dose of vitamin D. This product already contains vitamin D, the additional administration of vitamin D or calcium must be done under strict medical supervision, with weekly monitoring of calcium and calciuria.
  • The product should be prescribed with caution in patients with sarcoidosis due to a possible increased metabolism of vitamin D in its active form. In these patients, serum calcium and calciuria should be monitored.
  • The product should be prescribed with caution in patients with renal insufficiency with monitoring of the phosphocalcic balance. The risk of soft tissue calcification should be taken into consideration. In patients with severe renal impairment, vitamin D 3 as cholecalciferol is not metabolized by the normal route and other forms of vitamin D 3 should be used.
  • This drug contains sorbitol. Its use is not recommended in patients with fructose intolerance (a rare hereditary disease).
  • This medicine contains sucrose. Its use is not recommended in patients with fructose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption syndrome or sucrase-isomaltase deficiency.
  • This medicine is not indicated for children or adolescents.

PREGNANCY & BREAST-FEEDING & FERTILITY

This product can be used during pregnancy and lactation. However, the daily dose should not exceed 1500 mg of calcium and 600 IU of vitamin D3 .

Pregnancy

During pregnancy, cholecalciferol overdose should be avoided:

  • overdoses of vitamin D during gestation have had teratogenic effects in animals,
  • Pregnant women, overdoses in vitamin D should be avoided as permanent hypercalcaemia can result in children physical and mental retardation, aortic stenosis or retinopathy supravalvar.
  • However, several children were born without malformation after administration of very high doses of vitamin D3 for hypoparathyroidism in the mother.

Feeding with milk

  • Vitamin D3 and its metabolites pass into breast milk. This must be taken into account when administering vitamin D to children.

Vitamin D3 increases the intestinal absorption of calcium.

The increase in parathyroid hormone (PTH), due to calcium deficiency, is responsible for bone resorption. The administration of calcium and vitamin D3 inhibits this increase.

An 18-month, double-blind, placebo-controlled study carried out in 3270 women living in institutions, aged 84 ± 6 years receiving a vitamin D3 supplement (800 IU / day) and calcium phosphate (corresponding to 1200 mg / day of elemental calcium), showed a significant decrease in PTH secretion. After 18 months, according to an “Intention to treat” (ITT) analysis, 80 hip fractures were observed in the calcium-vitamin D group and 110 hip fractures in the placebo group (p = 0.004) . In a 36-month follow-up study, 137 women with at least one hip fracture were observed in the calcium-vitamin D group (n = 1176) versus 178 women in the placebo group (n = 1127) (p = 0.02).

  • Systemic corticosteroids reduce the absorption of calcium. In case of concomitant administration of corticosteroids, it may be necessary to increase the dose of Caltrate Vitamin D3.
  • Combination therapy with ion exchange resins like cholestyramine or laxatives like paraffin oil may reduce gastrointestinal absorption of vitamin D3.
  • Calcium carbonate may affect the absorption of tetracyclines when administered simultaneously. It is recommended to postpone the intake of tetracyclines at least 2 hours before or 4 to 6 hours after oral intake of calcium.
  • Hypercalcemia can increase the toxicity of digitalis when calcium and vitamin D are administered simultaneously. Patients should therefore be monitored regularly (ECG control and calcium levels).
  • In case of concomitant administration of a bisphosphonate or sodium fluoride, it is recommended to postpone the intake of Caltrate Vitamin D3 by at least 3 hours, their digestive absorption may be reduced.
  • Oxalic acid (found in spinach and rhubarb) and phytic acid (found in whole grains) can inhibit calcium absorption by forming insoluble compounds with calcium ions. The patient should not take any products containing calcium within two hours of eating foods rich in oxalic acid and phytic acid.

Warnings and Precautions

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE OF CALTRATE VITAMIN D3 600 MG / 400 IU

  • If you are taking other medicines containing vitamin D3 or calcium

PREGNANCY & BREAST-FEEDING & FERTILITY

Pregnancy

  • During pregnancy, the daily dose should not exceed 1500 mg of calcium and 600 IU of vitamin D. Studies in animals have shown reproductive toxicity at high doses of vitamin D. In pregnant women, any overdose of calcium and vitamin D should be avoided because permanent hypercalcemia has been associated with negative effects on fetal development. There is no evidence that vitamin D3 at a therapeutic dose is teratogenic in humans.
  • Caltrate Vitamin D3 can be administered during pregnancy, in case of calcium and vitamin D3 deficiency.

Feeding with milk

  • Caltrate Vitamin D3 can be administered during breast-feeding. Calcium and vitamin D3 pass into breast milk. This should be taken into account in the case of concomitant administration of vitamin D3 in children.

Vitamin D is absorbed in the small intestine passively, then reaches the general circulation by lymphatic route, incorporated into chylomicrons.

Its essential storage sites are adipose tissue, muscles, but also blood. The 25-hydroxyvitamin D bound to its carrier protein is the major circulating reserve form of vitamin D. Its half-life in the blood is 15 to 40 days.
