If there is a concern about low calcium and vitamin D intake, the patient can be sent to a dietitian. The dietitian can suggest intake of foods high in calcium and vitamin D. If the intake is not sufficient, supplements can be suggested. In patients with a history of calcium oxalate kidney stones, calcium citrate supplementation will not increase the risk of stones and may well aide in decreasing the rate of stone recurrence. The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) recommends at least 1200 calcium/day and at least 1000IU vitamin D/day.

PLACENTAL TROPHOBLAST DEVELOPMENT AND VASCULARIZATION During human and nonhuman primate pregnancy, the placenta simultaneously accesses the maternal blood and develops a vascular network for the transport of nutrients to and waste products from the fetus across the syncytiotrophoblast to ensure fetal growth and development. Both processes depend on the ability of the primordial stem-cell cytotrophoblasts to take either the villous pathway where they remain in the fetal compartment and differentiate morphologically into the syncytiotrophoblast or the extravillous pathway where they proliferate, aggregate into cell columns of the anchoring villi, and invade the endometrial stroma (Fig. 6). 105 The syncytiotrophoblast covers the floating chorionic villi that become highly vascularized, whereas the extravillous cytotrophoblasts infiltrate the walls of the spiral arterioles to facilitate the process of placentation.

Steroid induced glaucoma may develop after application of steroid preparations applied to the skin of the eyelids. This elevation occurs most frequently with chronic use, such as in patients with atopic dermatitis. Close IOP monitoring of these patients is essential and consideration of a non-steroidal topical medication, such as tacrolimus and pimecrolimus, should be considered as an alternative. Elevation in intraocular pressure has also been noted with application of steroids on skin that was not periocular, either from ocular contamination or systemic absorption. [22] Patients should be advised to wash their hands after applying dermatologic steroids or to use gloves.
