Common Questions and Answers about Causes blood calcium to be deposited in bones as calcium salts

blood

Avatar f tn Is it possible to develop kidney stone when calcium level in blood is normal? My vit d level is 46 ng. Taking 2000 iu of vit d3 for 7 months?
Avatar m tn I am not a doctor, however, I understand that hyperparathyroidism can result in calcium being removed from the bones. This will in turn elevate your blood calcium levels. Most people have four parathyroid glands. They are very tiny and located in the throat where the thyroid gland is located. Hyperparathyroidism can be caused by one of the parathyroid glands developing a tumor.
Avatar m tn Would you suggest taking Vitamin K2 along with it in order to prevent too much calcium building up in the blood and send it to the bones?
Avatar f tn vitamin K2 helps keep calcium locked in bones or deposited in bones while magnesium also helps prevent excess calcium being a nuisance. Prior to blood tests: stop taking iron 24 hours before Stop magnesium 1 week before Stop b12 a few months before You can get tested for everything but I meant you should be taking magnesium and eating drinking things with potassium to balance the magnesium. Celtic salt is good for sodium (also to to account for other sodium in your diet).
Avatar f tn Greetings, Are you cooking the egg before it is added to your dog's diet? The reason that I ask is that uncooked egg white contains a protein that is a trypsin-inhibitor. This protein effectively decreases the ability to digest and absorb protein. (Most people think avididn, which inhibits biotin utililzation as the major problem with raw eggs, when in effect, the trypsin-inhibitor can cause more serious problems if enough raw eggs are fed).
Avatar m tn But magnesium, as well as some trace minerals such as boron, are also essential for bone strength. In bones, calcium and magnesium are in electrical balance opposing one another in maintaining the strength of the bone. Too much calcium will leach magnesium out of the body (and vice versa) and out of the bones, making them brittle. This is also a result of using forms of calcium that are not good ones, such as hydroxyapatite.
Avatar f tn I think you might be in the wrong forum for this question. This forum is for thyroid issues. Osteoporosis is a disease of the bone that leads to an increased risk of fracture. In osteoporosis the bone mineral density is reduced. Click Health Topics at the top of this age, and look for the Osteoporosis forum. Also try www.google.com for anything you want to know about Osteoporosis. There is a ton of it. This is good too: http://saveourbones.com/free-chapter.html Good luck to you!
1699175 tn?1320125691 Eating or drinking too much calcium or vitamin D supplements over time can raise calcium levels in your blood above normal. Dehydration. A common cause of mild or transient hypercalcemia is dehydration, because when there is less fluid in your blood, calcium concentrations rise.
Avatar n tn Wow..I know I'm 2 years late with my comment but I've recently been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee. I'm 42 years old for god sake! I've been taking Prevacid for 5 years and my Doctor dismissed the "rumors" as well. I come from a family of fat and skinny but almost 100% healthy members. My Mom didn't start menopause until she was 50 so I know that can't be the problem. I keep thinking; "why are my bones doing this?
209384 tn?1231168306 If bruised they temporarily stop doing their job - that is, to take calcium from the bones and put a necessary amount into the blood. It’s the low calcium in the blood that’s the issue. Prior to surgery I had one parathyroid that was hyper, or overactive, and that caused all sorts of its own bone and blood issues. There are issues that affect bone calcium, utahmomma lists some, and that’s as much of a concern.
Avatar f tn They make calcium gummies as well. These are great and I take them in addition to my prenatal vitamin every day.
Avatar m tn When there is insufficient calcium intake the body needs the calcium and tends to take it from the bones. Ask your doctor about a supplement recommendation.
Avatar n tn A calcified granuloma is a granuloma containing calcium deposits. Since it usually takes some time for calcium to be deposited in a granuloma, it is generally assumed that a calcified granuloma is an old granuloma. A granuloma is one of a number of forms of localized nodular inflammation found in tissues. The fact that a granuloma is localized is important. So is its nodularity. Granulomas have a typical pattern when examined under a microscope.
717272 tn?1277590780 Since it causes the bones to throw extra calcium into the blood, that calcium builds up in places it should not be. You should have your calcium levels from TX. What were your numbers? Joint pain was one of the effects of having an overactive parathyroid. Also kidney stones and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries from calcium build-up). We have a lot of unexplained joint pain in this forum and I'm wondering if it might be related to this.
Avatar n tn While there are a few reports floating around the internet that claim regression of plaque has been observed, every cardiologist I've seen has never observed this. They have seen the odd few who have stopped progression. From what I understand, there is nothing in the blood to mop up pure fat. Fat cannot be dissolved in water and blood is mostly water, and this is why fat starts off inside lipids to transport it, and has to be moved around the body in lipids.
Avatar f tn I would suggest you to get serum calcium,phosphorus and urinary calcium done. The symptoms are not due to excess of Vitamin D but due to increased absorption of calcium and thus excess of calcium secondary to raised Vitamin D level. Stop taking Vitamin D level. In most of the cases the level gets normal without any treatment but if serum calcium level is very high consult your physician for further management.
5466288 tn?1410485185 C, fish oil, and other minerals might be lacking in your diet or your body. These help calcium to bind to the bones rather than leave. Hope this info helps...
19691093 tn?1488194069 It may of course increase again (not untypical in kidney disease), so a blood check in a month would be useful to check. The recommendation once phosphorus in blood reaches 6.5 is 50mg of aluminium hydroxide per every 1 lb of dog's weight daily. If the product you have is pure aluminium hydroxide, then 3/4 teaspoon would equate to 900mg. This means you were massively overdosing. The correct dose should have been 230mg (about 1/4 teaspoon for the whole day, divided into each meal).
Avatar f tn re finding now -- too much calcium intake pushed by the diary industry and too little focus on magnesium, which has to be in the proper electrical balance with calcium for the maintenance of strong bones. The other problem is that a large number of medications appear to either leach magnesium out of the body, or interfere with its absorption, and Americans take meds like candy.
351404 tn?1299489130 If we go for years and decades with insufficient calcium intake, the bones can get weakened as they are drained for calcium. This is known as osteoporosis. If we do not have this problem (insufficient calcium intake or diseases that drain the bones for calcium), supplements are just expensive and unnecessary (= unless your doctor say you need calcium, why take it?).
Avatar f tn The body tries to protect itself from all that calcium by limiting your vitamin D levels. Calcium needs D to be absorbed. If you end up with parathyroid disease, then visit the website: www.parathyroid.com . This surgeon is considered the best in his field. The bad parathyroid must be removed. No medication will fix it. This doctor can remove it in 20 minutes, with an incision under an inch. You are back home, eating dinner with your family that night.
Avatar m tn 3 Calcium is a component of atherosclerotic plaque and when calcium salts build up in soft tissues it causes hardening, which is technically called calcification. Exposure to excess amounts of calcium over time, without adequate magnesium sets the stage for endothelial dysfunction and formation of atherosclerotic plaque.
Avatar f tn In 2006 I was diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism that was caused by a parathyroid tumor. This caused the calcium levels in my blood to rise to near-lethal levels. After the tumor was removed, I had "hungry bone syndrome" where my bones were "starving" for calcium and sucked it out of my bloodstream faster than I could supplement it. This caused hypocalcemic symptoms (tingling all over, bone aching, mock-fibromyalgia, fatigue).
