I know had a bmp as pre-op to foot surgery, b/c I was taking spironolactone. Does that test measure calcium? Would I have been told if not normal?

I know had a bmp as pre-op to foot surgery, b/c I was taking spironolactone. Does that test measure calcium? Would I have been told if not normal?

Altho labs vary,: A BMP (basic metabolic profile) almost never measures calcium levels. However, it DOES measure those chemicals that are relevant for someone using spironolactone, in particular, your potassium (K+) level. If you want to know your calcium level, you could get a "comprehensive metabolic profile." Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Would too much calcium supplement cause feet and legs to retain fluid?

Would too much calcium supplement cause feet and legs to retain fluid?

Possible: You would have to take massive amounts of calcium to cause this because you can not absorb much more than 500mg at a time. The rest would be passed out in your stool. However, some calcium supplements have lead contamination which can cause kidney problems and thus fluid retention. Be sure that any supplement that you take is independently tested for contaminants (most are not.). ...Read more

I am 38 yrs lactating woman my feet bones sp heel paining. Why and howicure. Is takingake vitd and calcium will help?

Heel pain: It sounds like you may have heel pain. Try rest, icing, compression wraps, and elevation at first. "curing" it may take a while but consistently stretching your heel cord (calf muscle) will be the best treatment. Vitamins and calcium are good for you overall but does not directly affect heel pain. Hope this is helpful, if so, please vote for me. Thanks! ...Read more

I broke my foot is it okay to take extra calcium, vitamin d and magnesium? Will I get sick from to much?

I broke my foot is it okay to take extra calcium, vitamin d and magnesium? Will I get sick from to much?

Yes, unlikely: Yes, it is reasonable to take up to 1500 mg of calcium a day (choose well-absorbed forms like citrate) and up to 1000 mg of magnesium (glycinate, taurate or citrate) and up to 10, 000 iu of vit d. These doses will not be toxic, though magnesium will cause loose stools if you take too much. I also advise vit k at least 1000 mcg (1-2 mg/day) ; boron. Also consider trf:

After delivery I had foot pain in night, doc recmd. Calcium and vitamin d tab so it was OK. Again I am having foot pain so I need to continue calcium?

Cramps in feet was in PM now day too + arms. I am not dehydrated, not from use, I take calcium and mag. Cramps worse also cramp in diaphrm -cardio?

Cardio not likely: You seem to know that most cramps are from dehydration and electrolyte imbalance.
If a cramp wakes me at night, I drink four 6oz glasses of water right then. That usually stops them.
Cardiac causes are in the left chest and can be like a cramp. So if you have that then to then call 911.
Feet cramps can be from nerve impingement. You have feet, arms & diaphragm cramps so systemic. Go see a doc. ...Read more

Calf: Calf cramping when walking coiuld be a sign of a problem known as claudication, indicating a problem with arterial circulation and cold hands and feet could be a circulation issue as well.

Muscle cramping can also occur with a mineral, metabolic or endocrine issue.

The reason for not because of the epidural steroid incetions may be the factor you are looking for as well

Low: Low potassium or low calcium can sometimes cause symptoms like this. Your dr should have addressed this when he reported your labs. Cramps in legs & feet may be due to blood flow. You could try a banana and a good multivitamin every day. Best to talk with your dr who knows you and your results. ...Read more

Will taking calcium worsen or improve my heel spur?

Will taking calcium worsen or improve my heel spur?

No effect: A heel spur is a calcification of the attachment of the plantar fascia (on the bottom) or the achilles tendon (in the back). These are the result of long-term mechanical overuse and have nothing to do with calcium supplementation. The suprs themselves are responsible for pain in perhaps 1% of patients. Many people have large spurs with no pain and a great deal of pain, yet no spur. ...Read more
