Calcium (Ca) is an element necessary for the female body. He participates in various processes of the body. Tracking the Ca values in the blood can prevent the development of many pathologies. The norm of calcium in the blood of a woman depends on her age.
The rate of calcium in the blood in women varies depending on her age. This allows us to identify pathological processes in the body, taking into account the age category. The optimal calcium values are indicated in the table.
Deviations from the norm do not give grounds for diagnosing. If there is a change in the level of the element in question in the blood, the amount of Ca in the bones is determined. This allows us to identify a pathological process in which bones give calcium to other systems of the body.
In the female body, calcium is just as necessary, as in the male. In the study of blood, two indicators are determined: it is free and isolated calcium.
For women, whose age exceeds 40 years, normal indices of free calcium are 2.16-2.51 mmol / l. The optimal indices of isolated Ca are 1.13-1.32 mmol / l.
During the gestation of a child, an analysis of the amount of the trace element in the blood allows you to determine whether there is a need for additional calcium intake.
The optimal amount of calcium for a pregnant woman is 2.15-2.5 mmol / l. If the values fall below the level of 2.1 mmol / l, calcium should be started immediately in the form of tablets.
The analysis of blood composition for ionized Ca is carried out together with the determination of the content of total calcium and ph of blood. There is an inverse relationship between ionized Ca and ph blood. Reducing the number of ph by 0.1 units. leads to an increase in the level of calcium by 1.5-2.5%.
In women in the blood, calcium may have deviations from accepted norms and other pathological processes. These abnormalities have other manifestations, on the basis of which, the specialist has the right to presume a diagnosis and send for an additional examination.
The results of analyzes are affected not only by improper preparation for them, but also by the use of pharmacological agents. To obtain reliable results of the blood test, you should stop using medications 7-14 days before blood donation. If this is not possible, the physician should be informed of all the medicines used.
