Disorders relating to calcium deficiency

When the body doesn't have enough calcium from food intake daily, it takes what it needs from the bones. Overtime, bones lacking adequate calcium grow weak and brittle, and easily break. The following disorders could occur:
• Loss of bone density (osteoporosis)
• Low blood calcium levels (hypocalcaemia)
• High levels of calcium in the blood
It is worthy to note that adequate calcium intake reduces the risk of developing;
• Colon cancer
• Hypertension
• Osteoporosis
• Rickets
• Other disorders.
