Does Calcitonin in NDT increase calcium requirements?

Interesting question. I doubt that a peptide hormone retains any biologic activity after it had been subject to cleavage and denaturation in the gut. I would answer this question with no. Important to mention is that thyroid itself increases bone turnover which increases calcium requirements.
