A PROJECT RESEARCH INTO SERUM CALCIUM LEVEL IN GERIATRIC MEN, COMPERATIVE STUDIES

ABSTRACT

The body’s most crucial mineral is calcium. The heart is one of the most important muscles in the body, and it requires calcium to function properly. Calcium is necessary for strong bones and teeth. The body’s hormonal systems carefully regulate the amount of calcium in the blood. Dairy products, some vegetables (like broccoli), and some fortified foods are sources of calcium for the body. Calcium supplements can also be taken to obtain calcium. Only a small amount of the body’s calcium is found in the blood, with the majority being stored in the bones (serum). The calcium level is maintained between 8.5 and 10.5 mg/dl (4.3 to 5.3 meq/l or 2.2 to 2.7 mmol/l), which is a fairly small range. Calculating serum calcium levels level is rife with potential mistakes. Falsely elevated serum calcium concentrations can result from a variety of contamination sources. One doesn’t have to fast or limit their activity before the test; they can go about their normal daily routine. Prior to the test, a number of medications and drugs needed to be avoided because they might affect the results. Since the differences in serum calcium are significant with age differences, the experiment’s outcome can be calculated. Less serum calcium is present in people over the age of 50 compared to people between the ages of 20 and 30.

Serum Calcium level in Geriatric men

The most prevalent mineral and one of the most vital nutrients in the body is calcium. It is required by the body to create and maintain bones, teeth, and nerves as well as to cause muscles to contract, aid in blood clotting, and support the function of the heart. The body stores the majority of its calcium in the bones.
