Hello and hope you are doing well.

Nephrocalcinosis is a condition in which calcium levels in the kidneys are increased. The goal of therapy is to reduce the deposition of calcium to prevent the progression of disease. Thiazide diuretics are extremely helpful in decreasing calcium excretion and calcitonin and bisphosphonates are used to treat hypercalcemia. Also, blood pressure and urinary infections need to be adequately controlled. With this regular follow up with imaging studies and kidney function tests is needed to study the progression of disease.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
