The regulation of glucose-dependent insulin secretion in pancreatic β-cells relies on calcium concentration, making it a calcium-dependent process. Disruptions in calcium homeostasis may contribute to insulin dysfunction and disturbances in glucose homeostasis, potentially playing a role in the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). In T2DM patients, there may be changes in fluoride metabolism due to impaired renal function. Measurement of serum albumin-adjusted calcium and is crucial since changes in albumin levels can impact the accurate estimation of true calcium.
