Full description

Description

Therapeutic indications:
As an adjunct to specific therapy for osteoporosis and in situations requiring therapeutic supplementation of malnutrition e.g. in pregnancy and established vitamin D dependent osteomalacia.

The prevention and treatment of calcium deficiency/vitamin D deficiency especially in the housebound and institutionalised elderly subjects. Deficiency of the active moieties is indicated by raised levels of PTH, lowered 25-hydroxy vitamin D and raised alkaline phosphatase levels which are associated with increased bone loss.

During pregnancy and lactation:
During pregnancy and lactation, treatment with Adcal-D3 Caplets should always be under the direction of a physician. Requirements for calcium and vitamin D are increased during pregnancy and lactation, but, in deciding on the required supplementation, allowances should be made for availability of these agents from other sources. If the patient requires administration of both Adcal-D3 Caplets and iron supplements, they should be taken at different times.
