Were you looking for information about Calcium? Calcuim is a common misspelling of calcium.
Calcium is an important mineral used for maintaining healthy bones and teeth. It can also be used as an antacid and for preventing or treating high phosphate levels in people with kidney disease. The mineral, which can be obtained from the diet and through supplementation, is safe for most people at reasonable doses. However, you should talk to your healthcare provider before using calcium supplements if you have kidney stones, achlorhydria, or an overactive parathyroid gland.
