Calcium is one of the most important minerals needed by the body. It is an essential component of our bones, musculoskeletal structure and has a vital role in many metabolic functions. Mild to moderate deficiency of calcium can affect blood pressure regulation, electrolyte balance, and muscle contraction. What’s more, this may affect the capacity of the biological system to carry electrical impulses around the body,regulate the release of hormone and maintain the health of oral cavity.Healthcare providers recommend daily dietary allowance as a reference to ensure optimal intake in order to minimize the risk of calcium deficiency.

Types of Calcium Deficiency

Since calcium is needed by the body in highly calculated amounts, it is necessary to maintain a constant supply of this mineral via supplements or diet. Men and women may differ in the levels of calcium that is needed per day. Here is a chart of the approved RDA (recommended daily amounts) to keep the body fit and nourished.

Despite the fact that many dietary sources are rich in calcium, approximately 75% American are deficient in this mineral.What’s more,low levels of calcium are associated with many degenerative and chronic disease (some are possibly life threatening), such as fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, blood pressure maintenance issues, cancer and different forms of allergies. To prevent this, it is necessary to identify different types of calcium deficiencies.

Two of the most commonly occurring calcium deficiency are as follows:

Hypocalcemia

This condition refers to low calcium levels in the blood and can result from surgery, drug allergies, hypoparathyroidism and renal diseases. Cancers and malabsorption can also cause low calcium levels in the body.

Dietary Calcium Deficiency
