A high BUN is indicative of an acidic environment

Calcium - Many minerals and other factors are involved in maintaining a normal body chemistry.  These fluctuate during the day in response to variations in serum and electrolyte concentrations, as well as dietary influences. Calcium acts as a buffer and a balancer to maintain the body in a balanced chemistry state in order for proper enzyme activations to occur.  It is highly sensitive to elements such as magnesium, iron, and phosphorous as well as hormonal activity, vitamin D levels, CO2 levels and many drugs.  Long term acidosis can lead to mineral depletion and osteoporosis evidenced by a low calcium level.
