Calcium and bone disorders can stem from too little calcium or too much calcium and other minerals. Rickets, for example, is caused by a shortage of calcium or vitamin D, leading to softening and weakening of your child’s bones. Hypercalcemia, on the other hand, is too much calcium, which can cause kidney stones and affect your child’s heart.
At the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital, our endocrine specialists treat children with a wide variety of calcium and bone disorders. Our Pediatric Specialty Care Discovery Clinic combines the expertise of many pediatric specialists in one location, making it more convenient for your child to receive the unique treatment options offered at the University of Minnesota.
