Hypocalciuria is the term for an abnormally low level of calcium in the urine.
This laboratory finding indicates low urinary excretion of calcium by the kidneys, which is an early renal compensatory mechanism or attempt to conserve calcium in the presence of hypocalcemia (low blood calcium).
A low urine calcium level can be a feature of calcium deficiency, steatorrhea, vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroidism, parathyroid disorders, nephrosis, pre-elampsia, and some medications such as thiazide (diuretic).
