What happens if someone has too much calcium?
Too much calcium in your blood can weaken your bones, create kidney stones, and interfere with how your heart and brain work.
Hypercalcemia is usually a result of overactive parathyroid glands. These four tiny glands are situated in the neck, near the thyroid gland. Other causes of hypercalcemia include cancer, certain other medical disorders, some medications, and taking too much of calcium and vitamin D supplements.
Hypocalcemia causes increased neuromuscular excitability by decreasing the threshold needed for the activation of neurons.
People with mild hypercalcemia may not require treatment, and calcium levels may return to normal over time. However, if you have high calcium levels then you need to consult a doctor without any further delay.
Drinking plenty of water: Staying hydrated may lower blood calcium levels, and it can help prevent kidney stones too.
