However, thyroid hormones have an important effect on calcium content and uptake, and these effects arc preferentially induced in slow-twitch muscle fibers (Everts and Clausen, 1986). One may suppose from the results discussed by Clausen ct al. (1991) that calcium pumping, controlled by the thyroid, replaces the Na+K+ pump as an important component of overall energy metabolism. Probably the only way of clinching the question, whether there are significant metabolic adaptations in energy expenditure in people on lifelong marginal energy intakes, is by nuclear magnetic resonance measurements of ATP turnover in the whole body.
