Why Do Kidney Disease Patients Have High Calcium Level

Why Do Kidney Disease Patients Have High Calcium LevelKidney disease patients are at the risk of both high calcium level and low calcium level, but low calcium level is more common than high calcium level. Thereby, we are here to introduce more about high caclium level for kidney patients.

The causes of high calcium level in CKD

To monitor the progression of chronic kidney disease, patients are often suggested to do blood test and urine test. If their calcium level is higher than 2.75 mmol/L, it indicates their calcium level is higher than the normal. Generally, the following conditions can cause the elevation of high calcium level.

1. Extra intake of vitamin D, vitamin A or other metabolic products. These substances can prompt the calcium absorption in intestinal tract. Then, calcium level in the blood increases gradually.

2. The use of thiazide diuretics. These medicines can stimulate more fluid to eliminate out of the body, resulting in low blood volume and increasing the calcium reabsorption by renal tubules. The decline of calcium excretion can trigger high calcium level.

3. Kidney Failure: In the oliguria stage of acute kidney failure, calcium can’t be excreted by urine but accumulates in the soft tissues. In this condition, hypocalcemia can cause the increase of PTH, so as to increase the absorption of calclium by bone. Finally, hypercalcemia occurs easily.

How to lower high calcium level for kidney patients?

On one hand, patients should reduce their calcium intake especially calcium-containing foods and take some medicines like R-568 and phosphorus binders . On the other hand, patients had better use some Chinese medicines that can help nourish inherent kidney cells and prompt the recovery of damaged kidneys.

The treatment should depend on the causes of high calcium level for patients. To get individual suggestions, you are suggested to ask help from doctor online.
