For a spot urine test for 50lb girl, is trace blood, calcium 2.4, creatinine 3.3 within normal range? If not what can it be from? How can I help her
As answered earlier: A spot urinary calcium to creatinine ratio of 2.4/3.3 is. 72, which is high for age and means more calcium is being lost than normal. This can also explain the urine red blood cells, as calcium buildup in the kidneys has this effect. There are several possible causes. Followup with your doc at your scheduled appointment and complete the evaluation. ...Read more

My husband had a blood test to cheeck calcium levels 6 months ago it was low and told to use caltrate plus now dr said to stop cause it's to high why?
Get a consult: You don't treat a lab value. Reference ranges are set so that a few % of healthies fall outside. A true low serum calcium in an adult who appears healthy is uncommon (calculate ionized calcium, which is what matters, based on albumin), and possible hypoparathyroidism or renal calcium wasting should be worked up. I trust vitamin d levels have been checked. Endocrinology consult is in order. ...Read more
My pth levels are low they say 9...They found high calcium levels in my blood 11.7. How concerned should I be?
Hypercalcemia: It can be caused by many medical conditions. See an endocrinologist for work up and treatment. ...Read more
What was the level?: Blood calcium is present in two forms, ionized and bound to albumin. Ionized calcium is the physiologically active form. Low levels of Albumin will result in low total calcium without any effect on the physiology. It would require knowing the actual calcium level and serum Albumin level to provide a meaningful opinion. ...Read more

Not enough info.: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on with his patient.

If one has low calcium level in blood, does this mean they will also have low vid d levels or the first problems is caused due to low vit d?
Look for cause: Calcium levels in the blood drop only late in vitamin d deficiency -- a majority of your neighbors are likely deficient yet low calcium is rare. Most often, it's due to relatively low Albumin (which binds calcium) and the effective / ionized calcium remains normal. Hypocalcemia that's symptomatic is impressive clinically -- you'll feel it. Hope a cause can be found if it's truly low. ...Read more
36 y/o female. Blood test came back with with low blood calcium and high blood glucose. I didn't eat/drink before the test. What could this indicate?
Yes: Hypervitaminosis d is rare but potentially serious condition that occurs when you take in too much vitamin d. Excess amounts of vitamin d can cause abnormally high levels of calcium in the blood, which can affect bones, tissues, and other organs. Left untreated, this condition can lead to high blood pressure, bone loss, and kidney damage. ...Read more
Is there no cure to low ionized calcium and high intact pth? My creatinine level is within the normal level. What's the cure to this?
Things to check: Hi. I would recommend checking 25-hydroxyvitamin D, 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D, and 24-hour urine for calcium and creatinine. If indicated, get worked up for intestinal malabsorption. Your secondary hyperparathyroidism is a physiologic response of the parathyroids to a threat of low blood calcium. ...Read more
My calcium levels are a little high, vit. D is very low, creatinine is 1.22 and egfr is 59. Possible hyperparathyroid? What should my gp check next?
Parathyroid hormone,: Level to be checked first with phosphorus level. Your parathyroid needs to be low in the context of high calcium. If high or even normal, and not low, would check parathyroid nuclear scan. If an adenoma (benign tumor) is found, it will need to be removed or you will need to see endocrinologist or nephrologist for further management. ...Read more
