High calcium levels otherwise known as hypercalcemia, is a condition in which the calcium level increases in your blood. There are many causes of hypercalcemia. Too much supplements intake of calcium or vitamin D can also result in high calcium levels. Some medications or severe dehydration can also result in hypercalcemia. Osteoporosis is one of the complications of hypercalcemia. It can also result in various other health problems like.
- Kidney stones
- Heart problems
- Brain related problems
Symptoms of Hypercalcemia:
Having high calcium levels is very uncommon. Symptoms can range from mild or non-existence to severe. However, some of them include:
- Fatigue, headaches
- Frequent urination
- Muscle aches and weakness
This is a bone-related condition. Our bony material is continuously being broken down and replaced. In osteoporosis, human body starts losing bone material or makes less bone. The number of bones being broken down is more than the replaced ones. Osteoporotic bones lose their density and mass. This can also occur due to low calcium levels in our bones making them weak and brittle. Due to which chances of fractures increase. Osteoporotic bones can also break due a minor fall or sneeze. It is common among older people. Signs and symptoms of Osteoporosis are bone injuries especially:
- Vertebral pressure cracks
- Hip fractures
Hypercalcemia & Osteoporosis: Relationship
Our blood and bones contain a mineral called calcium. High calcium levels also known as hypercalcemia is a condition in which blood calcium level are higher than normal. Due to the continuous release of calcium into our blood can result in bone thinning. Hence, causing bone thinning disease called osteoporosis. Weak bones can lead to fractures, loss in height or spinal curvatures. Excessive amount of calcium in blood can weaken our bones. Osteoporosis is one of the complications of hypercalcemia.
When to seek medical attention?
As mentioned above, hypercalcemia has non-existent symptoms. Seek medical attention in case of experiencing symptoms of hypercalcemia like extreme thirst and frequent urination.
