Not really: It depends how high it is. There's two types of calcium tests. The regular Ca2+(calcium) test, checking total calcium in blood which is bound to protein (albumin), and a "free Calcium" test, which shows how much calcium is actually unbound and "free to do its thing." Calcium is one of the most common abnormal studies on blood work. Unless there's reason to think its super high for a reason, ur ok
