About Bonestat-K2 Capsule

Bonestat-K2 Capsule belongs to the class of 'dietary supplements, primarily used to treat low blood calcium levels. Bonestat-K2 Capsule effectively treats various conditions caused by low calcium levels in the body, such as osteoporosis (weak and brittle bones), osteomalacia/rickets (weak bones), hypoparathyroidism (low levels of parathyroid hormone), and latent tetany (a muscle disease with low blood calcium levels). Bonestat-K2 Capsule can also be given to pregnant, nursing, and postmenopausal women to ensure that they are getting enough calcium.

Bonestat-K2 Capsule consists of three medicines: Calcium (mineral), Calcitriol (Vitamin D3), and Menaquinone (Vitamin K2). Calcium is a mineral that is used to prevent or treat a calcium deficiency. It provides essential nutrients to maintain bone formation and maintenance. Calcitriol is a synthetic version of Vitamin D3 and treats calcium deficiency with hypoparathyroidism (the parathyroid glands' decreased activity) and metabolic bone diseases in people with chronic kidney failure. It raises Vitamin D levels and thereby increases calcium levels in the blood. This helps in improving the absorption rate of calcium from the intestine. Menaquinone is also known as Vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 helps to maintain bone density by promoting calcium transport from the bloodstream into the bone. Calcium-regulating proteins also require menaquinone in the arteries.

Your doctor will decide the dosage based on your medical condition. In some cases, Bonestat-K2 Capsule can cause side effects like constipation or stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, mood changes, weakness, tiredness, fast or pounding heartbeat, bone/muscle pain, and headache. Most of these side effects of Bonestat-K2 Capsule do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if these side effects persist longer, please consult your doctor.

If you are known to be allergic to Bonestat-K2 Capsule or its inactive components, please inform your doctor. Please tell your doctor if you have hypercalcemia (high calcium levels), hypervitaminosis D (high vitamin D levels), and malabsorption syndrome (difficulty absorbing nutrition from food). Brief your medical history if you have any heart/kidney/liver/blood vessel diseases, and kidney stones before starting Bonestat-K2 Capsule . Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking Bonestat-K2 Capsule . Higher doses of Vitamin D than the recommended daily dose should be used in pregnant women only when advised by the doctor. Bonestat-K2 Capsule may pass into the breast milk; hence, breastfeeding mothers need to seek medical advice before starting Bonestat-K2 Capsule .

Disease/Condition Glossary

Osteoporosis: It is a bone disease that makes the bones weak and brittle by decreasing bone density. It is known as a silent disease since it is not revealed until a bone is broken easily or fractured. Symptoms include backache, easily breaking bones, and hunched or stooped posture. Thinning of bones can be prevented by treating with medications, calcium supplements, a calcium-rich diet, and lifestyle changes.

Osteomalacia/Rickets: A bone disease caused by softening and weakening bones in children due to inadequate vitamin D.

Tetany: A disease condition due to low levels of calcium (hypocalcaemia) in the body that causes cramps and spasms in the hands, feet, and larynx (voice box. 

Hypoparathyroidism: It is a disease characterized by low levels of parathyroid hormone. This can cause low calcium levels and trigger tetany.

FAQs

Bonestat-K2 Capsule is used to treat low blood calcium levels. Bonestat-K2 Capsule effectively treats various conditions caused by low calcium levels in the body, such as osteoporosis (weak and brittle bones), osteomalacia/rickets (weak bones), hypoparathyroidism (low levels of parathyroid hormone), and latent tetany (a muscle disease with low blood calcium levels).
Bonestat-K2 Capsule is a dietary supplement that treats low levels of calcium in the blood. It consists of Calcium, Calcitriol, and Menaquinone. Calcium is a mineral and prevents or treats calcium deficiency. Calcitriol, a synthetic form of Vitamin D3, treats calcium deficiency with hypoparathyroidism (the decreased activity of the parathyroid glands). Menaquinone (Vitamin K2) maintains bone density by promoting calcium transport from the bloodstream into the bone.
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is time for the next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and follow your usual dosage.
Milk is considered to be the best source of calcium. You can take Bonestat-K2 Capsule with milk.
Bonestat-K2 Capsule can cause kidney stones due to excess calcium deposition when used for a prolonged period. Please consult your doctor before taking Bonestat-K2 Capsule as a daily supplement if you have any kidney problems or a history of kidney stones.
Bonestat-K2 Capsule is used to increase low levels of calcium in the body. Hence it is not advised to use Bonestat-K2 Capsule during hypercalcemia, since it causes the overdose of calcium leading to kidney stones and other effects.
Calcitriol in Bonestat-K2 Capsule can increase inorganic phosphate levels in serum; hence it should be cautiously used in patients undergoing dialysis to maintain adequate phosphorus levels and avoid ectopic calcification (calcium deposition). It is advised to follow a low phosphate diet to control serum phosphorus levels in patients undergoing dialysis.
