Calcium supplements should be systemically administered when calcitonin is given, particularly at high doses. Rectal calcitonin seems also to be an efficient alternative in prevention of trabecular bone loss. Further studies are required to evaluate the effect of calcitonin in prevention of cortical bone loss. In established osteoporosis, calcitonin may prevent further bone loss at trabecular and cortical sites. A similar benefit is obtained following parenteral or nasal admin...
