As manufacturer of Calcium Gluconate we hereby state the following facts about the drug:

Calcium is essential for the functional integrity of the nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems. It plays a role in normal cardiac function, renal function, respiration, blood coagulation, and cell membrane and capillary permeability. Also, calcium helps to regulate the release and storage of neurotransmitters and hormones, the uptake and binding of amino acids, absorption of vitamin B12, and gastrin secretion. The major fraction of calcium is in the skeletal structure; small amounts of calcium carbonate and amorphous calcium phosphates are also present. The calcium of bone is in a constant exchange with the calcium of plasma. Since the metabolic functions of calcium are essential for life, when there is a disturbance in the calcium balance because of dietary deficiency or other causes, the stores of calcium in bone may be depleted to fill the body’s more acute needs. Therefore, on a chronic basis, normal mineralization of bone depends on adequate amounts of total body calcium. Calcium Gluconate is the calcium salt of gluconic acid, an oxidation product of glucose, and contains 9.3% calcium, which is about one-third of the calcium in the strength of calcium chloride. It is an ingredient found in a variety of supplements and vitamins and is used to lower potassium in the blood or treat magnesium poisoning. Calcium gluconate is used as a mineral supplement and medication when there is insufficient calcium in the diet. Supplementation may be done to treat or prevent osteoporosis or rickets, consequences of hypocalcemia. Calcium Gluconate is the gluconate salt of calcium. An element or mineral necessary for normal nerve, muscle, and cardiac function, calcium as the gluconate salt helps to maintain calcium balance and prevent bone loss when taken orally. This agent may also be chemopreventive for colon and other cancers. Calcium Gluconate Injections are also available, they are a sterile, nonpyrogenic supersaturated solution of calcium gluconate for intravenous use only.

Therapeutic uses and effectiveness:

  • Calcium gluconate is used to prevent or treat calcium deficiencies. Oral calcium salts are used as dietary supplemental therapy for people who may not get enough calcium in their regular diet. Calcium gluconate is used as a cardioprotective agent in high blood potassium
  • Calcium gluconate is the antidote for magnesium sulfate toxicity

Calcium gluconate can be used for:

  • Hyperkalemia
  • Hypocalcemia
  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hungry Bone Syndrome
  • Tumor Lysis Syndrome
