Animals were evaluated using Ciba-Corning calcium analyzer and PIXImus II mouse densitometer (DXA).

Summary of procedures that were conducted
• body weight
• bottle choice test Various salt solutions (several concentrations) vs. water.
• DXA Body mass, fat mass, lean mass, bone mineral density and content.
• metabolic panel Ionized and total blood calcium, blood pH.
• monitoring system Bleeding time to collect approx 30 µL.
