High Serum Calcium Symptoms
Albumin deficiency: Total calcium is attached to albumin, an important protein in the blood. Your serum calcium may be erroneously normal if your ionized calcium is significantly elevated, look at Albumin level and also repeat the calcium tests to make sure no mistake. May need to look at mg, phos, and intact pth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Means nothing alone: As a pathologist who's devoted a lifetime to lab medicine, my teammates and i are always reminding people that lab results mean nothing whatever in the absence of a history & physical exam. Please don't take this the wrong way, and i appreciate your proactive approach to health. But no one can do anything with this. Ask instead, "could high Albumin out-of-range be from dehydration?" etc. ...Read more
What condition(s) causes someone to have high total serum protein, high albumin, normal globulin and high total calcium levels?
Dehydration.: There are no diseases that specifically increase albumin. Therefore in order to get an elevated concentration there must be a decrease in the amount of water in the system. This would also account for the normal globulin. Calcium is bound to Albumin so that elevated Albumin will elevate your calcium levels as well. ...Read more

Speak with your doc: It sounds as if your doctor is doing a diagnostic work up to include your parathyroic gland. If this is the case she may also order tests to visualize the gland as well as your bones. You may have had a recent fracture or problem that she is addressing. Hope you get to the bottom of it soon. ...Read more
Could a severe vitamin d deficiency mask primary hyperparathyroidism by lowering serum calcium levels? [would u see low-normal calcium and high pth?]
Masking: Masking of hyperpara with low D is unusual. 40% of hyperpara patients present with vitamin D deficiency. It is important to get all labs checked at the same time (blood draw) to prevent confounding results from tine of day or day to day changes. The labs I check are: total calcium, ionized calcium, 25 OH vitamin D, magnesium, phosphorus, creatinine, chloride, and intact PTH. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

High creatinine?: Hi. "Creating" is not a real substance. If you mean creatinine, it means the patient has some degree of kidney disease, probably chronic. At a certain point of chronic kidney disease (CKD), patients are treated with calcitriol. A patient with high serum calcium and phosphorus, high calcitriol, and high creatinine is in kidney failure, on calcitriol, and with serious calcium and phosphate problems. ...Read more

When you don't have enough vitamin d, in order to keep your blood calcium levels normal, your make more PTH to pull calcium from the bones and that raises the alkaline phosphatase. Replacing vitamin d should normalize all the tests. ...Read more
What is the calcium?: Upper normal calcium with high PTH could indicate primary hyperparathyroidism as well. Other possible causes include: low vitamin d, kidney problem or a lab error. You need to sit down with your doctor to look at all values, not just calcium and pth. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What causes low serum phosphate other than parathyroidism? PTH & calcium are constantly normal. Normal D vitamin because of high dose supplements.
Low phos: Phos metabolism is intake /shift/ losses. I am assuming you have good intake. So the other two are the reason, either shift inside the cells or losses from the kidney. How low is the phos? Your medication list shows no meds that can cause losses. A lab doesn't need to be treated, so rpt lab and then get a urine fractional excretion if still low. Talk to your MD. ...Read more
May be, may be not: Further evaluation is obviously needed. I can't say whether it is related or not without getting more information. In many cases- probably those two are not related. However in a case of colon cancer with metastatic disease to the liver- it can cause both increase of bilirubin level as well as low iron. Go to see your md and discuss further your condition. ...Read more
