What is Calcification

Your body needs calcium for bones and other parts of the body. Calcification is when your body stores in tissue that is not designed for this. Many times this causes tissue to harden which can be uncomfortable, cause pain and be dangerous. There are six common areas which calcium builds up in but it can happen in most organs

The common areas for calcification are

  • Breast tissue

  • Aortic valve'

  • Coronary arteries

  • Kidneys (Kidney Stones)

  • Gallbladder (Bladder Stones)

  • Brain

Calcification is most often caused by an infection especially in the breast, brain or kidneys. Metabolic disorders such as osteoporosis or hypercalcemia (Hyperkalemia is when there is too much calcium in the blood). The third most common cause is autoimmune diseases. Some people have a genetic tendency towards calcification in their body.
