It has long been accepted that the disturbances of calcium metabolism in the nephrotic syndrome resemble in many respects those found in chronic renal failure (1). However, in contrast to the extensive study of intestinal calcium absorption in uremia, there is a relative lack of information on the absorption of calcium in the nephrotic syndrome.
In this study, intestinal calcium absorption was measured by a double radioisotope method in a group of patients with nephrotic syndrome. The technique used has been described in detail elsewhere (2). Twenty-one patients, 13 men and 8 women, 20 to 73 years of age (mean
