The regulation of calcium is done by hormone namely calcitonin secreted from the thyroid gland and parathormone from parathyroid gland. In which calcitonin reduces the calcium level in the blood whereas parathormone increases the calcium level. Due to the deficiency of parathormone, disease Tetany occurs.

So, bones have no significance in the regulation of calcium level in our body.
