Hi, Thanks for your query, Calcium supplements
, given by mouth, are often all that is needed to treat hypocalcemia
. If a cause is identified, treating the disorder causing hypocalcemia or changing drugs may restore the calcium level.
Once symptoms appear, calcium is usually given intravenously. Taking vitamin DSome Trade Names
supplements helps increase the absorption of calcium from the digestive tract. Thiazide diuretics may be given to decrease the excretion of calcium by the kidneys, particularly when hypocalcemia is caused by hypoparathyroidism
