Blood calcium normal range

Common Questions and Answers about Blood calcium normal range


Avatar n tn None of the blood work supports cancer, multiple myeloma and kidney and liver are all completely normal. On April 17th, I was given an infusion of pamidronate to control bone pain and hypercalcemia. Two weeks after the infusion my calcium was 9.7 and 6 weeks after the infusion my calcium was 10.3. I am being treated by a endocrinologist at a prestigious Chicago University and she tells me that I cannot have hyperparathyroidism because my HPT is too low and my vitamin D is too high.
393419 tn?1228450993 9.6 totally normal he actually told me to stop taking the calcitriol, but when he tapped my face to do the "Chvostek's Sign", my lips spasmed. . .he didn't seem too concerned (and me like an idiot didn't ask any questions about it), but my feet have been falling asleep easily lately and my hands have been a bit tingly what's up? what could couse that if my calcium is supposedly fine? . . .could it be magnesium? I started taking a vitamin that has 100% DV of magnesium today. . .
Avatar n tn My PTH is elevated (95 pg/ml) but my serum calcium is in the normal range (9.3 mg/dl). My 24-hour urine test shows elevated calcium at 349 mg/tv. Could it still be that I have hyperparathyroidism? My doctor wants me to keep taking additional Vitamin D for a few months and check again. Does this make sense?
Avatar f tn The only thing I saw (doctor did not think it was a problem) was my blood calcium had crept up from 9.7 in December of 2012 to 9.9 in December of 2013. Note: I do take hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg/day. My Vitamin D was 32 in June 2013 and was 29.5 in December 2013. She told me to take supplements to increase it after 29.5 reading. Is 9..9 too high? No parathyroid or thyroid test done. Doctor thinks this is perfectly normal.
Avatar n tn If you have elevated PTH and normal ionized calcium, you probably have it...the PTH and calcium should always be either in range, or at opposite ends... Along with high blood calcium, you may also experience frequent heartburn, gallstones, kidney stones, headaches, muscle, joint, and gut pains...(especially aching in you low back/hip/pelvic areas)...constipation...You feel "old"...sound familiar? Oh, did I mention frequent(maddening!) urination -all day and night? Good luck...
Avatar f tn My cholesterol is now great (143 LDL and 73 HDL) and kidney function is also good. The only problem I had with my blood test (done on 12/5/2013) was that my calcium has crept up from 9.7 ti 9.9 from December 2012 to December 2013. They did not tell me about the calcium - I always ask about it since calcium was part of what was clogging my artery. They said the calcium level (9.9) was no problem. My Vitamin D was 29.5 and she did say to increase my supplement to raise to level.
393419 tn?1228450993 5 (normal range 1.3-2.1) Sodium 137 (normal range 135-146) Potassium 4.5 (normal range 3.5-5.0) Chloride 100 (normal range 98-109) CO2 28 (normal range 24-32) Anion Gap 9 (normal range 4-16) Urea Nitrogen 10 (normal range 7-21) Creatinine 0.8 (normal range 07-1.4) Calcium 8.
Avatar f tn I have been anemic for over a year now and I finally have my iron level up to normal. Now my calcium level has been high the last four or five blood tests. My vitamin D is also very low. I believe he said the level was an 8. I am terrified. The Doctor wants me to have a bone scan now. Has anybody ever had anything like this? The doctor says that the calcium is usually low when vitamin D is low. Does low Vitamin D ever make calcium high? I was told to take a 50,000 I.U.
Avatar n tn A year and a half later, I'm down to 2000, and the lowest dose of calcitriol (0.25). My calcium level has remained stable at the low normal range. What does your surgeon say about your parathyroids? Are they still in, or how many did you lose? Do you have measurable parathyroid function? What is your PTH level? It may be too early to test that. Hang in there! It will improve.
Avatar n tn Further tests have shown hypocitraturia (199 mg in 24 hr. urine test); 24 hr. urine volume of .97; PCR .6; and normal calcium level in urine. One stone was evaluated as 60% calcium oxalate monohydrate and 40% calsium oxalate dihydrate. He has been bounced around between a gastro doc and internist, looking for gastric causes of his stomach complaints. Our family doc did a simple urine test in the office and found he had considerable blood in his urine.
Avatar m tn my left leg calves BECAUSE they don’t have any strength. After showing him he said its due to lack of calcium. He did blood test. See below the results. And I had to go through ultra sound physiotherapy for 5 days. Haemoglobig : 11.6, Nutrophlis 51, Eosinphlis 02, Lymphocyte 45, Monocyte 02, ESR (westergren): 17, CReactive Protein:<6mg/I, Calcium CA++ 8.47.
220331 tn?1199846119 I am doctor told me that after TT that it will still be difficult to regulate my levels but not as difficult when my thyroid was going between hyper and hypo. She also said it could take some time to get there but she is willing to try just about anything to get me back to a "normal" life.
Avatar f tn It looks like your second calcium test got into normal range- am I right? If your calcium is high 2 out of 3 lab samplings, A Manual of Laboratory Diagnostic Tests, 2nd edition (old book) by Frances Fischbach, says that establishes hypercalcemia.
Avatar m tn My doc said I have high levels of calcium in the blood and my parathyroids are functioning normally.. I wish I had some more information.. Currently take levothyroxine for my thyroid taken out due to pap Thyroid cancer..3 years ago Tg (thyroilogublin) 0.5 which is indectable But my thyroid levels - Tsh 0.18 and T4 = 24.0 What signs and symptoms do you look out for? Some fatigue, but otherwise ok..
Avatar m tn Hi thanks for replying, been to the endocrinologist but he sad I am normal and there is nothing to worry about as my calcium level was always normal also that I couldn't be truly vit d defficient as my pth would be high. I am not really sure what all this means I did feel like they thought I was wasting their time : ( do your calcium results always come back ok.
Avatar f tn Now suffering from kidney stones, mental confusion, lack of motivation (mild depression), heart palpitations, dizziness/faint feeling. My urine calcium is 416, my blood calcium is 10.2, and my PTH is 23. Wondering if I have hyperparathyroidism? My urologist put me on thiazide and wants me to watch sodium intake-I'm not a salt person anyway so this is easy. My blood pressure seems to be creeping up a bit as well. I would appreciate any help!
6938807 tn?1395166888 My cousin has done his s. Calcium blood test upon doctor advice. His report is 10.1 mg/dl. Is it OK ........ his age is 35 Guide me in this matter.
Avatar f tn high blood pressure, high calcium, normal vit d levels, low/normal pth level, high calcitriol level and an elevated liver enzyme. Hair loss, acne, weight fluctuations(3-5 lbs), frequent urination, depression, hypothyroidism, bone cracking/popping, aches, pains, brain fog, increasing fatigue and a small bump under my chin that comes and goes. I'm on Wellbutrin XL, Synthroid, and Labetelol. Any doctors I've seen seemed relatively unconcerned and took the "wait and see" approach.
Avatar f tn Right now, the PTH is erroneously signaling your bones to give up calcium even though your blood level is normal. The body gets rid of excess calcium easiest by urinating it off. When your body (kidneys) can't keep up any more, the calcium builds faster, and the higher concentration gives you kidney stones. Somehow your poor body is still compensating, but at the cost of losing your bones in the process. From the description, I believe you had a poor-quality Sestamibi scan.
Avatar n tn Also, his B6 levels are 31 H when normal range should be 2.1 - 21.7. What is the cause of elevated B6 and elevated calcium and how do we lower it? How do we get these blood numbers back to normal? Also, his Albumin/Globulin Ratio is 2.4 H when normal range should be 1.0 - 2.1.
Avatar n tn 6 pg/ml (10-69) 2 years ago when I had routine blood work done, my calcium was within the normal range(don't remember the exact number, same lab), but 2-3 years before that, I remember my doctor telling me my calcium was slightly elevated(same lab). My calcium level seems to bounce around from slightly elevated to normal. So, my most recent calcium level dropped back into the normal range, but my intact PTH is low. I scheduled an appointment with an endocrinologist in a month.
Avatar n tn However, about every 3rd time I've had bloodwork, my calcium has been back in the normal range. I got sent to an endocrinologist and she did blood work for PTH but it was normal. But, my calcium tested normal that day, too. Anyone know anything about this? I feel tired and lousy a lot, so am trying to figure out if I need to be a little more pushy at the Dr's office. Also, one more question. I had a cervical spine neck MRI done recently for an unrelated neck problem.
Avatar n tn the parathyroid regulates blood calcium levels. If your blood calcium is high, then the parathyroid (PTH) should compensate by going down and be in the low normal range. If it's not compensating and high (even high normal) then it should be further investigated with a sestamibi scan. My blood calcium is always in the 10.2-10.8 range, not scary high, but I am on a low calcium diet, so it is abnormal. And my PTH was only 38 the last it was checked and my doctor still wanted to investigate.
Avatar f tn My calcium score is 400 - with no other indicators of heart disease (normal cholesterol, all blood test results within normal range, normal blood pressure). I am astounded. No history of heart problems, don't smoke, not overweight. I'm 58 year old female and from what I've read I have a serious problem. Is it possible to lower the calcium score? My physician has ordered a stress test and then we will discuss what to do going forward.
1504101 tn?1299158864 You really need to see the test report and compare your level with the range. If that test lab uses the same range as mine for calcium, then your very low, as in below the range -off the chart.
Avatar n tn Dear CCF Physicians, In order to control blood pressue can a calcium channel blocker such as Norvasc also be added to the following daily medications: Altace(10mg), Atenolol(50mg), Hydrochlorothiazide(25mg), Imdur(30mg), Lipitor(20mg), and Aspirin(81mg)? Or, is the calcium channel blocker taken instead of one of the above medications? Would changing the time of day a person takes their medication have any effect on blood pressure control?
Avatar f tn I have a slightly high platelet count too (like 415,000 when the normal range is up to 400,000) but I'm not very worried about that. All other blood work is totally normal. I was checked for ANA antibodies, lyme disease, had iron and B12 checked, everything is all normal. No signs of inflammation such as C-Reactive Proteins. The only thing that's been found is the Epstein-Barr virus in my blood, which is not active and just indicates a past infection.
1535301 tn?1294719118 25) after a day of nausea and barely any calcium all day (maybe 1,000mg). My bood calcium was 8.5 (range is 7.7-10.3). My PTHwere checked back in the summer, they were 7.5 (range 15-65) &pevious 6.7. Any ideas you have would be much appreciated.
