Hip Calcium Buildup Treatment

Calcification (calcium buildup) is a process in which calcium builds up in body tissue, causing the tissue to harden. Ninety-nine percent (99%) of calcium entering the body is deposited in bones and teeth. The remaining calcium dissolves in the blood.

When a disorder affects the balance between calcium and other minerals or chemicals in the body, calcium can be deposited in other parts of the body such as arteries, kidneys, lungs, brain etc. Calcium deposits in these parts of the body can cause problems with how these blood vessels and organs work.

After I was diagnosed with Legionaire's disease I was put on steroids, which created calcium deposits in both hips. After a few years of both sharp and dull pain, it was correctly diagnosed and recommended I have first one, then the other, hip replaced. Although it's been a lot of therapy to heal, I'm getting stronger daily..
