What kind of blood tests, what kind of assessments can be done to determine calcium?
If we want to evaluate calcium status, we look in the serum.
It’s not a great marker that reflects your intake of calcium per se in your diet, but it can reflect your intake over time, because generally low serum calcium levels are a parathyroid problem, which is directly linked.
If you don’t have parathyroid tumor, it’s typically being caused by low levels of chronically low levels of vitamin D, which trigger low calcium over time.
Calcium plays a role inside the cell, because part of the way a hormone communicates to the cell is through calcium.
We also know that intracellularly speaking, calcium regulates muscle tonicity and muscle tone.
If you’ve got a history of inflammatory bowel disease like celiac disease or Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis or any form of colitis for that matter, there’s a potential possibility that that inflammation is affecting your ilium, which is reducing your capacity to absorb calcium.
It’s very, very common to see people especially like with celiac disease have issues with calcium deficiency.
