LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Hypocalcemia may get better without treatment in some cases, especially if your baby has no symptoms. However, specific treatment for hypocalcemia will be determined by your baby's physician and may include:

  • supplemental calcium gluconate (a form of calcium that is easily absorbed) given by mouth
  • intravenous (IV) calcium gluconate
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
