Endocrinologist: What is the cause of her high calcium level? Has she been seen by an endocrinologist? She may have a problem with her parathyroid gland as the cause of the high calcium. If the serum calcium is too high, it can affect several different systems in her body.

Hi calcium and tummy: This is unusual. It sounds like your daughters high calcium needs further investigation. Hypercalcemia can cause stomach distress and fatigue. I would recommend lab testing for hyperparathyroidism. Other causes for high calcium should be excluded.
