Blood calcium values

Common Questions and Answers about Blood calcium values


Avatar f tn Hi, I have been getting lots of bloodwork done lately and I've been referred to an Endo. My labs are driving me crazy with worry. I've had repeat blood work in the last 2 months and things seem to be unchanged. I would like to know if someone could tell me what my labs are pointing to. So here it goes. As of last week my PTH is( 88), Vitamin D, 125 total is (113), Calcium is (10.8 )and 24 hr Urine is (546). I've had no other test yet. I have a return appointment in a week.
Avatar m tn I'm not able to find any charts regarding Daily Values of Vitamins, Calcium, Iron, ect. Are they somewhere buried in the food diary or do they not exist yet? If they don't exist, please implement them. I'm trying to get enough iron in my diet to pull myself out of anemia, so it would be great to know these things.
Avatar m tn The disease has been inactive (or so we believe) since the late 90s. She has just been informed that her blood calcium is high. Could this be caused by the inactive sarcoidosis?
Avatar n tn The tingling, burning sensation, the muscle spasms and so on. However, my blood test have shown normal calcium levels. I'm currently take my medication as prescribed, but I still have these symptoms. So I'm wondering if long term hypothyroidism can cause hypocalcemia and if a person could have hypocalcemia when calcium levels are within normal range on regular blood test? Or is there a special blood test which test for hypocalcemia?
19643911 tn?1481582486 Please post the actual serum calcium and PTH values when taken at same time. Also please do 25-hydroxy Vitamin D3 test. Also if want to know the reason for high calcium do these basic tests too.
Avatar n tn This isn't the expert forum, but I can give you my opinion: What is important is the free T4 and free T3 (FT4, FT3) not the totals (T3 and T4), free T3 which is the active hormone is normal and it got higher since 2008. Your TSH didn't change much, still in normal values (new range: 0, 3-3).
Avatar n tn Most laboratories have established reference values to indicate what PTH level is normal for a particular calcium level. In addition, the effects of PTH on kidney function and bone strength indicate that serum calcium, phosphorus, and creatinine levels should be measured together with PTH. The creatinine test measures kidney function and aids in the diagnosis of parathyroid dysfunction.
Avatar f tn My daughter is 2 years old. Recently, I got her blood tests done (CBC, LFT, Calcium and Vitamin D). Few values are out of the reference range like MCHC, SGOT and 25 Hydroxy D3 are 37.5, 42 and 14.7. What does that mean? What should be my further step? Is my baby safe?
Avatar m tn My wife got blood test results back today: Serum calcium: 2.55; ionized calcium: 1.3 and Parathyroid Hormone (PTH): 6.5. From this our doctor concludes she does NOT have HyperParaThyroidism. However she isn't able to tell us what is causing the high calcium and other symptoms and is suggesting to monitor the levels 6 months from now. If I fill in the above values in this nice iOS app 'Calcium Pro' it tells me it is very likely HyperParaThyroidism.
Avatar m tn The release of the hormone occurs with feedback mechanism from blood calcium levels. After the surgery the hormone levels dropped and so did the calcium levels; as a result this signaled the gland to release increased hormone levels to normalize the serum calcium. Values of 95 pg/ml are slightly on the higher side and may need to be followed regularly/ serially till they normalize.
2210653 tn?1339447403 My internst will not get behind my theory that this could be hyperparathyroidism because my PTH is in range and my calcium is not sky high. is this plausible or am I a hypochondriac? values are as follows : calcium: 10.6, PTH 26, vitamin D 17.
Avatar m tn I have never been a smoker. Blood tests have shown normal values. I am perplexed at the cramps. I would appreciated receiving your views.
Avatar f tn my doctor just said because of blood test values that it was "recent" all info about blood lab values is getting more and more confusing. since first outbreak i assumed it had to be 2 to 20 before?
Avatar m tn t worry much about the red blood levels that are elevated. The important cell characteristic values are all normal: MCV, MCHC and RDW. There is only a minor elevation in your Hematocrit and related values. And simply doing a bunch of yard work with a lot of sweating/dehydration can cause this. A simple retest with normal fluid levels will likely show normal values. What your doctor is primarily worried about is the elevation in the liver enzymes.
Avatar f tn There are many reasons for the variations in blood values, some are real and others may be artifact depending on the lab used at the time and the way the blood was handled. The values for calcium and phosphorus are also important values to have because once the value of the calcium multiplied by the phosphorus level is less then 40, calcitriol may be used.
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 m tn Are you seeing an endo? Your calcium is within normal values but heh....who said we are all easy cases right? You will find most of here are the challenging cases! lol You really need to focus on a dr who understands the endocrine system....good luck and please let us know how you do.
