Common Questions and Answers about Blood calcium critical for


Avatar m tn t know if your level is low or high. Ranges for most blood tests vary lab to lab and have to be posted with results. Have you had calcium and PTH levels tested? Those, along with vitamin D, would be the ones that would indicate parathyroid issues. The only relationship the parathyroids have with the thyroid, is the location in the body. You have 4 parathyroids located directly, behind the thyroid, but their function is entirely different.

Eggs: they deliver one of the best sourxes of protein, a key building block of baby's cells. 4. shrimp: these swimmers are a low-mercury source of healthy omega-3 fats, vital to your little one's brain and eye growth. 5. low-fat greek yogurt: you'll typically get more protein than regular yogurt and bone-building calcium.
Avatar m tn anyone know if vitamin k2, not k1, has any negative effects on platelets ie thicken the blood, increase platelet aggregation or interact with aspirin that I take for coronary artery disease?

2046116 tn?1330102721 Yes my blood work is fine. Haemoglobin is good, blood count is good, white blood cells good and blood pressure is normal. No cancer. I am not anaemic. There is no problem showing, but there is obviously one. I can tell you when one is going to start. I get immense pressure in my head, eyes and gums, then out of no where bleed. After bleeding, due to so much blood loss, I get a headache and really dizzy. They have no explanation. can you think of anything?
Avatar n tn When your levels of ferritin are low, this is a sign that your iron levels are low but in your case your not critical on iron ( critical iron level is 60-80 ). If the ferritin level is low, there is a risk for lack of iron, which could lead to anemia. I recommend you take iron supplements and a iron rich diet. The excess of iron is excreted in the stools but too much iron is not good. A healthy person will be able to take 75mg a day without any problem.
535882 tn?1396576685 Check the Vitamin D Council's website. They generally say that we should be taking about 5,000 iu. What you should do is this: And, this is information I've gotten from both Mercola and the Vitamin D Council: Take the dose you plan on using as your maintenance dose for six months. Then, get tested again. If it goes down significantly, it's not enough. If it stays close to the same, it is the right amount.
Avatar f tn Years ago I worked on the NDA for calcium channel blockers. The drug company studies suggested that a universe of people with idiopathic hypertension could control this with vitamin D3 and calcium supplements without other drugs. That does not mean that everyone with high blood pressure can lower it with these supplements. There is a genetic componant. In one test study 15-18 percent of the test subjects could significantly lower blood pressure with calcium and D3.
Avatar f tn Without knowing anything about your medical history or what medications you are on, I would not want to suggest any particular supplement or dosage. Everyone is different and what works for me may not be best for you. Good Luck!
Avatar m tn 1- is it true that calcium might be affected if he has low vitamin D even though the blood tests showed nothing concerning calcium ? 2- is there any relation between both ? 3- should he take calcium needles even though his blood tests were normal ? p.s , he is already on track on solving his vitamin D deficiency .
1943833 tn?1349276589 I have specific questions like should I add calcium to a homemade diet in the form of bone meal, if his calcium levels are already almost high? What supplements are critical for helping kidneys? Can you offer any help, any sources, or any guidance on this, or on any aspect of home feeding a puppy with renal failure? Thank you.
Avatar f tn The normal range for calcium is 8.5-10.2. You are well within that level. Our blood levels fluctuate depending on activity, diet, hormonal fluctuations.... The levels do not remain static at all times. If you continue to notice a trend going forward of the level creeping up, discuss your concerns with your doctor and ask if there is any measures that should be taken to prevent the level from exceeding the normal parameters. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn OK, just received results of blood test & says high calcium (10.8). Well.......All winter I've been very well, no colds, no brochitis even when the rest of the family was ill. I believe Vit D3 helped keep me well. Been taking about 5000 iu per day. Think that could be causing trouble with the calcium?
Avatar f tn High blood calcium levels indicate that you are not absorbing calcium as well as you should. The vit. D3 should help, but potassium and magnesium are also needed to absorb calcium.
Avatar n tn why would one have a high calcium level in a blood test? Mine was 11.2. My doctor sent a note to stop taking calcium supplements - I never take any calcium supplements and I hate milk. Should I follow up on this or is it just something that happens from time to time? thank you.
Avatar n tn What could it mean if I have too much calcium in my blood? I guess it is just slightly more than regular, but my doc is monitoring it. Also, do small goiters usually go away with Synthroid?
Avatar f tn You are definately cold because you're not producing enough of the thyroid hormone. Did you Dr tell you why he/she didn't give you any meds? If you were really hyper before it's possible that your Dr felt there was still enough thyroid hormone left in your body but that's not always the case. If you're taking that much calcium your parathyroids were probably bruised or removed during the surgery.
1093351 tn?1317810854 s who are building bone can have calcium levels up to 10.2 on more than one occasion. Generally, this is not true for adults over 30. There is no reason to wait any more than 1 week for repeat lab tests, and there is no reason to get a urine calcium level on the vast majority of patients--its a test with no value. Finally, remember that getting scans is NOT part of the diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism. Ever.
Avatar n tn if yes then my suggestion would be to take sodium feredetate and to help the iron absorption you should take a good vitamin C ( 1,000mg ) this good vitamin C can be bough at your local food supplement store.
Avatar n tn The balances between these four minerals seems to be critical to health and are probably very critical for thyroid health. Excess amounts or deficiencies of any one of the four may severely disrupt thyroid function. Additionally there seem to be interactions between these four minerals and copper and zinc, which are two metallic minerals with critical thyroid functions.
Avatar f tn They are minerals/electrolytes which are critical for health and for normal heart rhythms. Too much or too little of any of them can potentially be fatal. I am convinced that many people who are suffering from heart rhythm disturbances, and taking medications for them, would benefit from having their electrolytes checked. I had horrible arrhythmia until my doctor checked my electrolytes and discovered that I was low in all 3 minerals.
