Because hypocalcemia occurs for so many different reasons, it is difficult to determine a precise rate of incidence for the condition. It is a common result of dietary deficiency, as well as conditions like hypoparathyroidism, pancreatitis, and kidney problems. Hypocalcemia is relatively common, but usually easy to treat.
