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
I had a blood calcium level of 11.0. I went for a recheck and it came back normal 9.5 what is the reason for this?
If my calcium level (blood work) has been from 9.5-10 for the last year, but two weeks ago it was 10.3 should i be worried? im 30 years old.

If you're a little dry / thirsty, it'll go up some; if you've been sick and your albumin is a bit down, it'll go down. And it varies some just with what you may have eaten recently. Best wishes. ...Read more
