    women in menopause have a higher risk of osteoporosis; this literally means porous bones.it also happen to cause calcium deficiency disease called hypocalcaemia and hypertension. the decline in the hormone estrogen during menopause cause a woman's bones to thin faster. low calcium intake throughout life is associated with low bone mass and high fracture rates. During the aging process more calcium leaves the bones than it is taken up by the bones so the bone tissue becomes weaker.

    low calcium is associated with low bone density. Decrease stomach acidity, chemical contents of some cereals and menopause predisposes to osteoporosis. However, physical activity, ingestion of fat soluble vitamin; vitamin D to be specific and ingestion of milk promote calcium absorption and bone density. Cigarette and alcohol also leads to loss of calcium.

    Hypocalcemia is an electrolyte imbalance and is indicated by a low level of calcium in the blood. The normal adult value for calcium is 4.5-5.5 mEq/L. Calcium is important for healthy bones and teeth, as well as for normal muscle and nerve function. Normal blood calcium levels are maintained through the actions of parathyroid hormone (PTH), your kidneys and intestines. If your blood test results show hypocalcemia, your doctor may check your albumin level as well. If your albumin is low, your calcium level should be corrected for this. A corrected calcium level will be higher if the albumin is low. What Causes Hypocalcemia? There are many causes of hypocalcemia, these include; Vitamin D deficiency Chronic renal failure Magnesium deficiency Alcoholism Biphosphonate therapy - drugs used to treat high blood calcium levels or pills used to treat osteoporosis. Certain types of leukemia or blood disorders A complication of chemotherapy, tumor lysis syndrome, occurs when your body breaks down tumor cells rapidly, after chemotherapy. This may cause hypocalcemia, high blood potassium levels, and other electrolyte abnormalities. This is very serious, and if your blood test results indicate you suffer from it, your doctor or health care provider will need to closely monitor you during this time. Drugs such as diuretics, estrogens replacement therapy, fluorides, glucose, insulin, excessive laxative use, and magnesium may also lead to hypocalcemia. Certain things in your diet, like caffeine, phosphates (found in soda pop), and certain antibiotics may make it difficult for you to absorb calcium. Vitamin D, however, helps you to absorb calcium in your body.
