Low blood calcium treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Low blood calcium treatment


1535301 tn?1294719118 I have another question regarding my low calcium issues. I have been keeping track of when I have more symptoms and it always corresponds with when I am ovulating (mid-cycle) and menstruation. They seem to cause severe calcium drops. I have also noticed worse symptoms if I am more physical (which is every day). Is there some sort of hormonal treatment that could stop my symptoms around menstruation, and /or eliminate them since it seems to bring them on?

Avatar n tn Everything I have read about hypercalcemia talks about high calcium with high PTH or hypocalcemia with low calcium and low PTH. Anybody have any experience or knowledge about conditions that might arise in a generally healthy person with high calcium and low PTH? Thank you!
Avatar n tn I am just trapped with low dangerouse calcium levels. They tell me that my surgeon left 3 of my parathyroid glands. I just wonder if any of you have had this happen to you. Will my calcium be controlled of my parathyroid glands never kick in?
Avatar n tn I'm currently taking almost 3000 mg/daily of over the counter calcium supplements. I have low calcium symtoms daily and suffered a couple very serious "attacks". Is anyone else having this much trouble getting regulated?
Avatar m tn Hey Ann, Yes it is very likely, as the calcium is actually absorbed out of the bones, and deposited into the blood circulation, causing bone pain and possibly other symptoms as well. The only treatment for this is surgery. Your bone density come back positive for calcium loss/low density/osteoporosis if your GP's diagnosis is correct.
Avatar m tn I get confused with calcium scoring because it only measures the hard calcified plaque and not the amount of soft vulnerable plaque beneath it, which is the dangerous stuff. I read that some ethnic groups show a low calcium score, yet have LOTS of vulnerable plaque. It will be interesting to see what an expert says because the resources on the internet are confusing over this and it appears there are two camps of trusting these results, or not.
Avatar n tn Often social anxiety symptoms are so strong that beta blockers, while helpful, cannot reduce enough of the symptoms to provide relief. Because they can lower blood pressure and slow heart rate, people diagnosed with low blood pressure or heart conditions may not be able to take them Possible Benefits. Used for short-term relief of social phobia.
Avatar n tn I hate to think what is was Sunday and Monday when I was in so much pain,,,,,,I thought I would die,,,,,he didn't get another blood test yesterday,I go Monday to get another calcium blood test. He is trying to get me an appointment with an endocronoligist. She has to see my files first before she will agree to see me and it might be 2 months before I get an appt with her. The gastric bypass really throws a curve into the treatment....
Avatar f tn OK, for starters, If your blood calcium level is HIGH, it should be associated with a LOW parathyroid hormone level and if your doctors are saying low is normal because of some lab derived statistical formula, it isn't necessarily so! "Most" people within those so called ranges do not have significant issues, however some people will exhibit significant symptoms at sub-clinical levels around the lower or higher ranges. What are your PTH and Serum Ca values?
Avatar f tn Red blood cells, platelets, procrit, nuelasta, chemo, red blood cells, platelets, procrit, nuelasta, Chemo? Seems to be a theme for me the last 2 months. Does anyone one have natural solutions to raise cbc levels ?
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone who has had been put into surgical menopause has also been granted with low blood pressure. Too low of blood pressure to be exact. With a million and one symptoms of weakness, fatigue, nervousness/jitterness, migraines, blurry vision, lightheadedness, dizziness, more fatigue after exertion, hot/cold flushes, etc. My blood pressure has generally been low but has gotten really low that they put me on Florinef and I am trying to sort out WHY WHY WHY.
4939681 tn?1361302899 Me, again! Sorry, I pose so many questions, but with so many symptoms it is impossible ( even with 2 hr appts) to cover everything during a dr visit. Update to cover previous posts: I have a neuro opthamologist appt tomorrow. Appt with vasculitis clinic is being set up (though, I don't propose anything will come of it). LLMD is calling me back regarding the addition of LDN to my daily pile of pills and for permission to step up doxy to at least 200 a day.
216703 tn?1277682777 PTH is the most important regulator of the body's calcium and phosphorus levels. Release of PTH is controlled by the level of calcium in the blood. Low blood calcium levels cause increased PTH to be released, while high blood calcium levels inhibit PTH release.You mention you have symptoms based off his site. What symptoms? might want to take a look at the court document and compare : - http://www.phillipsandcohen.com/CM/NewsSettlements/NewsSettlements516.

Avatar n tn I am 51 year old woman have just had blood tests calcium level was high then endocrinologist had me do a 24 hr urine then my PTH level in urine is low and Calcium level is high. What can the reason be and what would treatment be. Also what other tests should I have done. I am hypothyroid & take 150 md synthroid, Type II diabetic & take metformin & Byetta, slightly high blood pressure & take atacand, slightly high cholesterol & take zetia & avapro.
Avatar m tn Then crush a magnesium pill and slowly stir it into the calcium water. When you introduce the magnesium, the remaining calcium dissolves; it becomes more water-soluble. The same thing happens in your bloodstream, heart, brain, kidneys, and all the tissues in your body. If you don’t have enough magnesium to help keep calcium dissolved, you may end up with calcium-excess muscle spasms, fibromyalgia, hardening of the arteries, and even dental cavities. Another scenario plays out in the kidneys.
Avatar m tn Low hemoglobin can be caused by many factors, from kidney failure, to lack or iron in the diet. Often high blood pressure can be stabilized by a simple calcium supplement and some garlic every day.
768044 tn?1294227036 That's good to know though about the Calcium Channel Blockers lowering blood pressure... I don't have low blood pressure, so hopefully the blood pressure thing won't exclude me from trying the medication since my blood pressure isn't very high atm either. We will see what my neurologist says. Let me know if you start noticing a difference in your migraine pattern! :) Good luck!
Avatar m tn i have read alot about cholesterol as a risk factor being based on shaky science, and that inflammation -- crp, homocysteine etc being the real culprits. what are my options here? statins scare me. why would i have such a high calcium score with low inflammation? is there a real heart attack risk?
Avatar f tn Does anyone get really low blood pressure with Lyme and Co? Mine has been really low the last few days and this morning it was 72/43 with a pulse of 55. I have had back pain central on the right hand side for the last nine days that is worse in the middle of the night while I am sleeping (at least trying to). I am so used to just chucking everything into the Lyme basket now that I guess I am concerned that I am becoming a bit to laid back with my weird health symptoms.
Avatar n tn I had low vitamin D levels last year and after I got those levels up, my PTH returned to normal. Is 8.5 normal for calcium? I thought that was on the low side?
874521 tn?1424120397 1 magnesium...200mgs from a health food store...brand SISU, the bottle says 2 tablets per day, that sure sounds low doesn't it? another question..someone recommended lipoic acid to me for nerve pain issues, is it safe to take with a variety of other medications for pain ie gabapentin, percocet(prn) , lamictal and a high b/p med too?? I was also told at the health food store that this is an excellent anti oxidant, do you agree with that?
681148 tn?1437665191 Does anyone have any basic information about Calcium Channel Blockers used for migraine prevention? My neurologist just started me on one that is a very low dose. My migraines and my IBS have gotten so much worse, in spite of doing the right things nutritionally and with my diet. My neurologist is proud of my obvious best efforts. I showed him which supplements I'm taking, and they're the ones he definitely wants me to take. So, as far that goes, I've been doing very well.
874521 tn?1424120397 Scrutinizing the dietary data along with the original results, researchers found that calcium reduced the risk of colorectal polyp recurrence only when the ratio of calcium to magnesium intake was low, before and during treatment. A calcium- to-magnesium ratio of 2:1, But everyone is unique: Biochemical individuality means it could vary quite a bit for different people. This one's not black and white.
Avatar f tn The parathyroids' only job is regulating the level of calcium in the blood, and when the calcium is too low, the PTH rises and signals the bones to release calcium. As the calcium rises to normal levels the PTH is supposed to scale back. Right now, the PTH is erroneously signaling your bones to give up calcium even though your blood level is normal. The body gets rid of excess calcium easiest by urinating it off.
4939681 tn?1361302899 T4 (since I know that's what most doctors go by)? Also, if anyone has had high blood calcium and had their PTH tested, could you please post your levels? (I have read that PTH levels can be deceiving in detecting a parathyroid problem.) Thank you!
Avatar n tn Some amount of calcium deposition in brain is common as the age increases. Otherwise, some inflammation of the blood vessels also leads to calcium deposition on the artery walls. What is more important is to know if your mother had any symptoms earlier.
4939681 tn?1361302899 I mentioned before that I am on a low calcium diet bc I have high blood calcium (reason is still under investigation). However because I've been losing so much weight, I've had to supplement a least 2 meals a day with an Ensure drink (unavoidable). What do you think the consequences are taking the doxy and the calcium in the Ensure?
