When you don’t get enough calcium, you are at risk of developing bone-related diseases such as osteoporosis, osteopenia, and calcium deficiency disease (hypocalcemia). Calcium deficiency occurs when an individual does not consume the recommended amount of calcium per day through the food they eat, supplements, and vitamins.
Treatment of Hypocalcemia
Symptoms of hypocalcemia can be easily managed and reversed. However, when symptoms are left untreated, it can lead to serious complications that may threaten our life. Common treatments of calcium deficiency include:
- Calcium supplementation – This restores the levels of calcium in the bloodstream and in your bones.
- Diet change – Create a special diet plan by adding foods that are rich in calcium and vitamin D. Hypocalcemia occurs when calcium levels are extremely low so adding more calcium in your system will help.
- Calcium Injections- If a normal supplementation is not enough, your doctor may want to give you injections to regulate your calcium levels.
As we get older, our body’s ability to absorb calcium changes. While we’re still young, eating a balanced diet with foods that are rich in calcium and taking calcium supplements is the best way to keep our bones strong and healthy.
