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
