    2014-08-24 00:02| Font Size A A A

    How to Deal with Hypocalcemia for Kidney Failure PatientsHypocalcemia is the presence of low serum calcium levels in the blood. Unfortunately, kidney failure patients are prone to suffer from this symptoms due to damaged kidneys. Well then, how to deal with low calcium for patients with kidney failure?

    1. What the normal range of calcium in the blood?

    Calcium in the blood exists in three primary states: bound to proteins (mainly albumin), bound to anions such as phosphate and citrate, and as free (unbound) ionized calcium. Only the ionized calcium is physiologically active. Normal blood calcium level is between 8.5 to 10.5 mg/dL (2.12 to 2.62 mmol/L) and that of ionized calcium is 4.65 to 5.25 mg/dL (1.16 to 1.31 mmol/L).

    2. What is hypocalcemia?

    Serum calcium level lower than 2.1-2.2mmol/L is called hypocalcemia. According to Merck Manuals, in the beginning you may experience no systems even though you suffer from hypocalcemia. However, with prolonged affects of hypocalcemia you can feel symptoms such as osteoporosis, bone fracture and other bone problems, tingling in your tongue, lips, fingers and feet, muscle spasms in your throat and achy muscles. In severe condition, it can cause serious nervous and cardiovascular lesions which can be life-threatening.

    3. How does hypocalcemia occur in kidney failure?

    Our healthy kidneys play vital role in regulating and balancing electrolyte level, including phosphorus and calcium in the blood. For kidney failure patients, their damaged kidneys lose this ability and often have metabolic disorder of phosphorus and calcium, namely high phosphorus and low calcium. In addition, in renal failure, the absorption of calcium in the gastrointestinal tract will decrease, leading to hypocalcemia.

    4. How to deal with hypocalcemia for kidney failure patients?

    With kidney failure, treatment typically includes thiazide diuretics, which can decrease the amount of calcium your kidney expel.
