Low blood calcium levels are referred to as hypocalcemia. This condition might be encountered in association with a number of medical problems but is most commonly diagnosed in the newborn. Very low calcium levels can cause marked jitteryness or even convulsive seizures; this most commonly occurs with infants of diabetic mothers. Treatment of hypocalcemia is the infusion of calcium by vein.
