Calcium is a mineral that is needed for our muscles to function properly. It enables the body to move normally by keeping tissues firm, strong, and flexible when needed. Since calcium levels are low in HypoPara, you may experience symptoms that affect the muscles, such as muscle cramps. If this happens, you may need to take in more calcium through your diet or supplements.

Exercise can affect your calcium levels and can lead to dehydration. Make sure you drink water while exercising to stay hydrated. Signs of dehydration may include fatigue and dizziness. If you experience confusion, reach out for medical help immediately.

If you have HypoPara, it is important to talk with a healthcare professional before changing your physical activity. Confirm with your doctor that the exercises you want to try are safe and appropriate for your physical condition and where you are in your treatment journey.
