When Calcium concentration in the blood becomes lower than normal:
A decrease in Ca2+ concentration in the blood is detected by the body; in response, PTH (parathyroid hormone) is released. The release of PTH activates osteoclasts. Osteoclasts then resorb bone, releasing Ca2+ to restore calcium homeostasis.
