What are some conditions accompanied by a calcium level abnormality?
What kind of endocrine gland is characterized by a low level of calcium in the blood serum and urine?
Do you mean an endocrine gland that can lower calcium level? If this is your question, the answer is thyroid gland. It produdes calcitonin that lowers calcium level opposing the effect of parathyroid gland which increases calcium level. If you mean, a condition that is characterized by low level of calcium in blood, it is called hypocalcemia.
The serum level of calcium is closely regulated with a normal total calcium of 2.2-2.6 mmol/L (9-10.5 mg/dL) and a normal ionized calcium of 1.1-1.4 mmol/L (4.5-5.6 mg/dL). The amount of total calcium varies with the level of serum albumin, a protein to which calcium is bound. The biologic effect of calcium is determined by the amount of ionized calcium, rather than the total calcium. Ionized calcium does not vary with the albumin level, and…
