38 Possible Causes for Mild or Severe Hypocalcemia

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Individuals with mild hyperphosphatemia are typically asymptomatic, but signs of severe hyperphosphatemia include: tingling in hands and fingers muscle spasms and cramps convulsions[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] It can also result from kidney dialysis, parathyroid gland dysfunction, and several inherited diseases. Mild hyperphosphatemia usually produces no symptoms.[diet.com] The disorder occurs concurrently with hypocalcemia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Hypocalcemia

    Forty-seven percent of the patients developed postoperative hypocalcemia, including 26 (22%) with mild and 30 (25%) with severe hypocalcemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We found that both mild and severe hypocalcemia shows sustained improvement over the first 4 days of admission.[ccforum.biomedcentral.com] Mild hypocalcemia is asymptomatic. Severe hypocalcemia is characterized by cardiac arrhythmias and tetany with hyperparesthesia of the hands, feet, lips, and tongue.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Dialysis Disequilibrium Syndrome

    severe elevations (greater than 7 mg/dL) with concomitant life-threatening hypocalcemia can be seen with ingestions of large amounts of sodium phosphate laxatives used for[ahcmedia.com] This forms the basis for treatment of hyperphosphatemia with phosphate binding agents and dietary phosphate restriction in ESRD. 7,9 Hyperphosphatemia is usually mild, but[ahcmedia.com]

  • Acute Exertional Rhabdomyolysis

    Mild to moderate cases of acute exertional rhabdomyolysis can cause metabolic disorders such as hypernatremia, hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia, hypocalcemia, lactic acidosis[drplace.com] Severe cases may result in disseminated intravascular coagulation, renal failure and death.(1) Most commonly, acute exertional rhabdomyolysis occurs after severe physical[drplace.com]

  • Osteitis Fibrosa Cystica

    In some cases, however, the postoperative hypocalcemia is severe and prolonged despite normal or even elevated levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH).[usmleforum.com] The hypocalcemia is generally transient because the degree of bone disease is typically mild and normal parathyroid tissue recovers function quickly (usually within one week[usmleforum.com]

  • Hypercalcemia

    In patients with severe osteitis fibrosa cystica, prolonged, symptomatic hypocalcemia may occur postoperatively unless 10 to 20 g elemental calcium is given in the days before[web.archive.org] When hyperparathyroidism is mild, the serum calcium concentration drops to just below normal within 24 to 48 h after surgery; serum calcium must be monitored.[web.archive.org]
