Clinical Study Title:
Early phase metabolic bone disorders after gastrectomy: influence of active vitamin D treatment.

Plain English Summary:
This study examined the use of vitamin D therapy on bone disorders that are common after a gastrectomy. A total of 63 participants were given either vitamin D therapy or not given any additional therapy in the early stages post surgery. The vitamin D supplementation helped to increase calcium and phosphate levels, whiled helping to modify the parathyroid hormone. This suggest that the early stages after a gastrectomy can be pivotal in the development of bone disorders, and that vitamin D therapy can help to prevent bone disorders.
