*CaCl (680 mmol/L) started at 14 mmol/h (except critical hypo and hypercalcaemia
), adjusted by sys iCa: iCa > 1.2: [down arrow]QCa 1ml/h; iCa: 1.0-1.2: no change; iCa < 1.0: [up arrow]QCa 1 ml/h; iCa < 0.8: [up arrow]QCa 2 ml/h.
Long-term follow-up of patients with idiopathic infantile hypercalcaemia
. Pediatr Nephrol 2006; 21:1676-1680.
Studies of the hypercalcaemia
of sarcoidosis: effect of steroids and exogenous vitamin D3 on the circulating concentrations of 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D3.
Medical treatment and close monitoring of the mother and fetus were suggested by some experts in cases of mild hypercalcaemia
, while other authors believed that their outcome after surgery was more favourable .
Despite the variations in the cut-off points for defining hypercalcaemia
by various studies, hypercalcaemia
has been consistently associated with increased risk for mortality in haemodialysis patients [12,18, 27].
Later, he developed acute renal failure secondary to dehydration and hypercalcaemia
. His condition took a downfall when he developed Pseudomonas septicemia and metabolic acidosis.
Blood pressure is lowered by vitamin D (alphacalcidol) during long-term treatment of patients with intermittent hypercalcaemia
. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study.
The differential diagnosis between primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism was made in our case; we note that secondary hyperparathyroidism was excluded because of the important serum hypercalcaemia
(in secondary hyperparathyroidism the calcium level is normal or low), low phosphorus level, very high value of PTH.
The incidental finding of hypercalcaemia
may not have been due to a paraneoplastic syndrome as the patient underwent excision of a parathyroid adenoma later in 2011.
Calcium channel blocking agents like verapamil, nifedipine and diltiazem are commonly used in the treatment of hypertension, angina, myocardial infarction and supraventricular tachycardia.6 Induction of hypercalcaemia
through intravenous administration of calcium, is usually associated with increased gastric volume and acidity.7,8 The acid stimulating ability of calcium; is well known and there is extreme sensitivity to calcium in patients with Z-E syndrome.9,10 Calcium channel blocker Verapamil may interfere with H+K+ ATP ase due to its high affinity for the site H+K+ATP ase system which is accessible from luminal side of the stomach.11
By the way, changing the inactive lifestyle, medical treatments and using natural food additives are among the solutions that have been reviewed either separately or sometimes interacting with each other in order to control hypercalcaemia
and its side effects .
is a common metabolic disorder associated with cancer, and occurs in 10 to 20 percent of people who have cancer.
