CAL4U SACHET 1GM
CAL4U SACHET 1GM belongs to the class of 'Vitamins', primarily used to treat low blood calcium levels. CAL4U SACHET 1GM effectively treats various conditions in the body like Vitamin D deficiency, osteoporosis (weak and brittle bones), hypoparathyroidism (parathyroid glands make low levels of calcium in the body), latent tetany (a muscle disease with low blood calcium levels) and rickets or osteomalacia (softening or deforming of bones due to lack of calcium). Vitamin D deficiency occurs when your body has low Vitamin D levels and is caused due to inadequate nutrition, intestinal malabsorption or lack of sunlight exposure.
CAL4U SACHET 1GM contains 'Cholecalciferol' a form of vitamin-D. It acts by promoting the absorption of calcium, phosphates and Vitamin A from different organs and helps in maintaining overall health.
Take CAL4U SACHET 1GM as advised. Your physician will decide the dosage based on your medical condition. CAL4U SACHET 1GM is likely safe to consume. In some cases, it may cause side effects like constipation, increased blood calcium levels, increased calcium levels in urine, vomiting, nausea. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. If these side effects persist, please consult your physician immediately.
Tell your physician if you are allergic to CAL4U SACHET 1GM. Chewable or dissolving tablets may contain sugar or aspartame, hence caution should be taken in diabetes and phenylketonuria (increased levels of an amino acid called phenylalanine). Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their physician before taking CAL4U SACHET 1GM. Higher doses of Vitamin D than the recommended daily dose should be used in pregnant women only when advised by the doctor. CAL4U SACHET 1GM passes into the breast milk, hence breastfeeding mothers need to seek medical advice before starting CAL4U SACHET 1GM. CAL4U SACHET 1GM is safe to use in children when recommended by the pediatrician. CAL4U SACHET 1GM should be used with caution in hypercalcemia, renal impairment, heart diseases, kidney stones and hypervitaminosis D (having too much vitamin D).
Osteoporosis, Osteomalacia (Rickets), Vitamin D deficiency, Hypoparathyroidism and Latent tetany
CAL4U SACHET 1GM is used to treat low blood calcium levels. It effectively treats various conditions in the body like Vitamin D deficiency, osteoporosis, hypoparathyroidism, latent tetany and rickets or osteomalacia. CAL4U SACHET 1GM contains Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3). Cholecalciferol is a steroid hormone produced in the skin when exposed to ultraviolet light or obtained from food sources. It is a provitamin that is converted into vitamin after intake. It helps maintain blood calcium and phosphorus levels and mineralization of bone. CAL4U SACHET 1GM is also used in the treatment of familial hypophosphatemia (a group of rare inherited disorders characterized by impaired kidney conservation of phosphate and in some cases, altered vitamin D metabolism).
Tell your physician if you are allergic to CAL4U SACHET 1GM. Chewable or dissolving tablets may contain sugar or aspartame, hence caution should be taken in diabetes and phenylketonuria (increased levels of an amino acid called phenylalanine). Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their physician before taking CAL4U SACHET 1GM. Higher doses of Vitamin D than the recommended daily dose should be used in pregnant women only when advised by the doctor. CAL4U SACHET 1GM passes into the breast milk, hence breastfeeding mothers need to seek medical advice before starting CAL4U SACHET 1GM. CAL4U SACHET 1GM is safe to use in children when advised by the doctor. CAL4U SACHET 1GM should be used with caution in hypercalcemia, hyperparathyroidism, renal impairment, electrolyte imbalance, heart diseases, kidney stones and hypervitaminosis D (having too much vitamin D).
Drug-Drug Interactions: CAL4U SACHET 1GM may interact with drugs treating high cholesterol levels (cholestyramine), anti-epileptic (carbamazepine, phenobarbital), antibiotics (doxycycline, neomycin, and chloramphenicol), drugs treating bone loss (alendronate), thyroid hormone (levothyroxine), diuretics (hydrochlorothiazide) and heart-related medicines (digoxin).
Drug-Food Interactions: Avoid or reduce the intake of caffeine, soft drinks and alcohol that inhibit calcium absorption.
Drug-Disease Interactions: CAL4U SACHET 1GM is contraindicated in hypercalcemia, hyperparathyroidism, hypervitaminosis D, malabsorption syndrome, Vitamin D toxicity, heart/kidney/liver/blood vessel diseases, kidney stones, diabetes and phenylketonuria.
Drinking alcohol can affect calcium absorption, hence it is advised to limit the alcohol intake while using CAL4U SACHET 1GM.
During pregnancy, use higher doses of CAL4U SACHET 1GM than the daily dietary allowance only when advised by the doctor. Your physician will weigh the potential risks and benefits before recommending CAL4U SACHET 1GM.
Consult your physician before taking CAL4U SACHET 1GM if you are breastfeeding. CAL4U SACHET 1GM can pass into the breast milk. If CAL4U SACHET 1GM is used during breastfeeding, please monitor the mother and the infant's serum calcium levels.
If you experience any dizziness while using CAL4U SACHET 1GM, do not drive or operate machinery. Please consult your doctor if you experience any dizziness.
Let your physician know if you have any history of liver diseases before taking CAL4U SACHET 1GM. Hepatic impairment/liver disease can alter the metabolic and therapeutic activity of certain Vitamin D forms.
It is advised to seek physician advice before starting CAL4U SACHET 1GM if you have kidney diseases like kidney stones or undergoing dialysis. Caution should be taken in patients undergoing dialysis to maintain adequate phosphorus levels and avoid ectopic calcification (calcium deposition).
The physician will suggest the dosage of CAL4U SACHET 1GM based on the child's age and weight.

Vitamin D deficiency: When a person cannot get enough Vitamin D through food and exposure to sunlight, it leads to vitamin D deficiency. It often leads to thin, brittle, or misshapen bones.
Osteoporosis: It is a bone disease that weakens and brittle bones by decreasing bone density.
Tetany: A disease condition due to low levels of calcium (hypocalcemia) in the body that causes cramps and spasms in the hands, feet, and larynx (voice box).
Osteomalacia/Rickets: A disease caused by softening and weakening bones in children due to inadequate vitamin D.
Hypoparathyroidism: It is a disease characterized by low parathyroid hormone levels. This can cause low calcium levels and trigger tetany (muscle cramps, spasms, or tremors).
