Low blood levels of calcium may cause bone disease. Calcitriolis in a class of medications called vitamins


Mechanism of action: Calcitriol's mechanism of action takes place through its specific receptors, the calcium-sensing receptor(CaR) and the Vitamin D Receptor (VDR). These two factors have an effect not only on its specific receptors, but also they can modifythe other receptor in a positive manner, promoting its actions and demonstrating a cooperative effect between the two henceincreases the level of calcium (Ca2+) in the blood by increasing the uptake of calcium from the gut into the blood, decreasing thetransfer of calcium from blood to the urine by the kidney, and increasing the release of calcium into the blood from bone.
