Calcium Used with ADT May Worsen PCa

April 2013
Renal & Urology News;Apr2013, Vol. 12 Issue 4, p13
An interview with prostate cancer (PCa) epidemiologist Gary G. Schwartz is presented. When asked about his suspicion that calcium and vitamin D supplementation might harm in men suffering androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT)-related bone loss, he states that studies show an increased risk of fatal PCa for men with higher levels of calcium in blood. He suggests maintaining bone mineral density (BMD) by accumulating enough skeletal mass in youth.
