About UNICALCIN 100IU INJECTION 1ML

UNICALCIN 100IU INJECTION 1ML belongs to groups of medications called hypocalcemic agents, primarily used to treat high blood calcium levels (hypercalcemia). It helps your bones stay as strong as possible. It can help if you have or are at risk of getting a health problem called osteoporosis. This is where your bones get weaker and more likely to break. Osteoporosis can happen for many reasons, but you're more likely to get it if you're a woman who has been through menopause or if you take steroids, for a long time. Some types of cancer treatment can also increase your risk of getting osteoporosis. Besides this UNICALCIN 100IU INJECTION 1ML can also help people who have Paget's disease of bone. This weakens your bones and can bend them out of shape.

UNICALCIN 100IU INJECTION 1ML contains Calcitonin is a calcitonin receptor agonist that prevents the loss of bones that happen after menopause and helps to rebuild bones.

Thereby, UNICALCIN 100IU INJECTION 1ML strengthens the bones and minimize the risk of fractures.

If you have osteoporosis, avoid smoking, or try to quit. Smoking can reduce bone mineral density and increases the risks of fractures.

Yes, UNICALCIN 100IU INJECTION 1ML consists of Calcitonin that decreases blood calcium levels by inhibiting osteoclasts (a bone cell that breaks down bone), stimulating osteoblasts (a bone cell that builds bone), and stimulating calcium excretion by the kidneys.

Long term treatment with UNICALCIN 100IU INJECTION 1ML for osteoporosis and osteoarthritis has shown an increase in the risk of cancer. Do not take UNICALCIN 100IU INJECTION 1ML for longer durations unless prescribed by your doctor.
