Study group discussion: Electrolyte abnormalities that cause constipation

Q) Which electrolyte abnormalities can lead to constipation?

My friend says calcium.

Yes, hypercalcemia.

He screamed in my ear because he got excited :L

Hahaha

Hypercalcemia
Hypermagnesemia
Hypokalemia
Hypophophatemia

How does hypercalcemia lead to constipation??

Hypercalcemia increases the action potential threshold and hence decreased contraction n peristalsis.

Sounds good!! Thanks!!
