For how Long Should We Give Calcium Supplementation In Neonatal Hypercalcaemic Seizure (Due To Cow’s Milk Intake)?
Expert Answer :
Once the ionic calcium levels in the serum are in the normal range, maintenance cral calcium in the dose of 30-50 mg/kg/day of elemental calcium in divided doses can be given for a period of about 2 months till dietary measures to increase calcium intake are completed. Eg. changing the milk intake to fortified formula or if possible and the baby`s age permits changing to full-strength cow`s milk instead of diluted milk. Prolonged supplementation is usually not indicated if oral intake can be corrected.
