About CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7

CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7 belongs to the class of nutritional supplements, primarily used to treat nutritional deficiencies. CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7 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). Nutritional deficiency occurs when the body is unable to absorb or get enough nutrients from food.

CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7 consists of three medicines, namely: Calcium (mineral), Calcitriol (Vitamin D3), and Vitamin K2-7 (Menaquinone). Calcium is a mineral that prevents or treats a calcium deficiency. It provides essential nutrients to maintain bone formation. Calcitriol is a synthetic version of Vitamin D3 that treats calcium deficiency and metabolic bone diseases in people with chronic kidney failure. It raises the Vitamin D levels and thereby improving the absorption rate of calcium from the intestine. Vitamin K2-7 helps maintain bone density by promoting calcium transport from the bloodstream into the bone. 

Your doctor will decide the duration based on your medical condition. In some cases, CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7 can cause side effects like constipation, stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, weakness, tiredness, and headache. Most of these side effects of CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7 do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if these side effects persist longer, please consult your doctor. 

Inform your doctor if you have hypercalcemia (high calcium levels), hypervitaminosis D (high vitamin D levels), malabsorption syndrome (difficulty absorbing nutrition from food), heart/kidney/liver/blood vessel diseases, or kidney stones before starting CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7. Drinking alcohol can affect calcium absorption; hence it is advised to limit alcohol intake while using CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7. Children should be given this supplement only when advised by the doctor. 

Uses of CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7

Nutritional deficiencies, Osteoporosis, Osteomalacia (Rickets), Calcium deficiency, Hypoparathyroidism, and Tetany.

Medicinal Benefits

CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7 is used to treat low blood calcium levels and various associated conditions caused by low calcium levels in the body, such as osteoporosis, osteomalacia, hypoparathyroidism, and tetany. It consists of Calcium (mineral), Calcitriol (Vitamin D3), and Vitamin K2-7 (Menaquinone). Calcium is a mineral that prevents or treats calcium deficiency. It helps to maintain bone and tooth health. Calcitriol, a synthetic form of Vitamin D3, treats calcium deficiency with hypoparathyroidism (the decreased activity of the parathyroid glands) and metabolic bone diseases in people with chronic kidney failure by improving the absorption of calcium from the intestine. Vitamin K2-7 helps maintain bone density by promoting calcium transport from the bloodstream into the bone. Together, CALCITRIOL+CALCIUM+VITAMIN K2 7 helps improve bone strength and treats associated nutritional deficiencies.

Patients Concern

Disease/Condition Glossary

Nutritional deficiency: A nutritional deficiency occurs when the body does not absorb or get enough nutrients from food. This condition occurs when a person's nutrient intake is lesser than the body's recommended requirement. 

Osteoporosis: It is a bone disease that makes the bones weak and brittle by decreasing bone density. 

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

Tetany: It is a disease condition occurring 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.
