Various studies have suggested the possibility that volume expansion may increase parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion. PTH appears to have renal effects consistent with the actions of a natriuretic and diuretic and the possibility exists that PTH may play a physiological role in volume homeostasis. The present studies were designed to examine whether PTH levels in plasma from rats was influenced by acute volume expansion and whether such effects were independent of alterations in plasma ionized calcium concentration. Volume expansion with calcium-free bicarbonate Ringers (10% of body weight, IV) led to a drop in plasma ionized calcium from 1.08 to 0.92 mMol/l (p less than 0.01) while plasma PTH concentration was increased from 67.2 to 114.2 pMol/l. Volume expansion with bicarbonate Ringers solution (also 10% of body wt, IV) which contained 1.8 mM CaCl2 was not associated with any significant change in either plasma ionized calcium or plasma PTH concentration. However, measurements of blood packed cell volume (PCV) revealed that infusion resulted in a drop in PCV from 49.7 to 41.1% (p less than 0.01). This represents a dilution of plasma of approximately 42%. The absence of any drop in plasma PTH during isocalcemic volume expansion suggests an underlying stimulus to PTH secretion during volume expansion independent of plasma ionized calcium levels.
