Calcium plays a v
• Thyroid gland and parathyroid gland are responsible for maintaining calcium homeostasis.
• Both of the glands are antagonist with each other.
• As Calcitonin which is peptide hormone secretes from thyroid gland response to high calcium level in the blood.
• Calcitonin decreases plasma calcium concentration by decreasing mobilization of calcium from bones.
• Whereas parthyroid gland which secretes parathyroid hormone increases calcium level in blood.
• Bone tissue acts as astrongreservoiur for calcium and PTH stimulates the removal of calcium from bone to increase level in blood.
• It increases the reabsorption of calcium by renal tubules of kidney.
• PTH is a hypercalcemic hormone. i.e it increases the blood calcium level.
