TSH is WAY high!: Must get on a higher dose of synthroid (thyroxine). This can be life threatening, get treated asap, ! other thyroid tests need to be done to know what needs to be done, and to come to a diagnosis. ...Read more

I have calcium level of 10.3, albumin level of 5.1, is the calcium high? I'm 22

No, it's normal.: The level of calcium in the blood moves up and down with albumin, so your calcium is normal. The albumin level is higher than usual, most likely reflecting mild dehydration. Have a salty meal and drink water and this should correct. ...Read more

My recent labs show my bilirubin, hematocrit, albumin, and calcium levels are elevated. But just slightly. Should I be concerned?

My CBC is normal, but I had 10.6 calcium and 8.6 protein and albumin was high. I'm so scared because I googled it and it seems all says MM. Help?

Had routine blood work recently done, all came back normal expect for my calcium levels slightly high -10.5, Protein 8.3, Albumin 5.2. I'm female. ?

High calcium: levels may mean that you are slightly dehydrated, or it may be real. Your albumin is normal so it is not a factor in falsely low calcium levels. At 10.5 it may be a normal variant (reference range 10.4). I would have it checked again in 1 month to be sure. ...Read more

Total calcium level 10.5( elevated by .5) total protein 8.8( elevated by .8)albumin 5.2(elevated by .2)phosphorus 2.3(decreased by .2) worrisome or no?

Not really worrisome: These lab values are not all that abnormal and really in most cases are not to worry about as they are. It also depends on if you are having problems. If you had these drawn you must of had an order from your healthcare professional and you should also check with them and see if there is a problem that they are concerned about. Please check with them on the final decision. I hope this helped. ...Read more
