I Have Too Much Calcium In My Blood What Are The Negative Affects Stones
Why r my calcium levels normal, while my ionized calcium levels are high? I have bone pain, fatigue, kidney stones. I don't know pth level, or vit. D.
Many symptoms: High blood calcium level is usually caused by hyperparathyroidism, where excess parathyroid hormone because of benign tumors called adenomas.

I had blood in my urine could it be that I'm taking calcium? I also had pain on my right upper back I was told it was kidney stone. Is this true?
Is that so?: If an imaging study was performed that showed you have a kidney stone, then that's probably why you have the blood in your urine. If there's no imaging study, you don't know if it's a kidney stone or not, and getting imaged would probably be worthwhile. Why are you taking calcium? I can't recommend it as a general 'women's health' measure especially if there's a question of nephrolithiasis. ...Read more

Urologist sent me for tests because of kidney stones. Parathyroid hormone level is at 85.8. Calcium in blood is 8.6. What does this mean?

If the Urologist has not discussed this with you please call him! If the Urologist did discuss this with you but you are still not sure how good or bad this is (independent of kidney stones) , you must see the Urologist. Please let me know what develops. ...Read more
Is it true that too much elemental calcium in the blood (over 2500 mg) may cause calcium toxicity?
You may not...: Kidney stone formers often have elevated levels of calcium in the urine and calcium lowering medications can help them. However, reducing calcium in the diet is not recommended and does not seem to prevent stones. Excessive intake may predispose to stones, but there is no evidence that it will cause them. If you have a prior history of stone, taking the regular usrda of calcium is recommended. ...Read more
I'm vitamin d deficient but my calcium is always norm in blood test at 9.5. Is it ok to take vit d supp? Or will it raise calcium too much
More than OK-needed: The vast majority of calcium in our body is in our bones. You can maintain a normal blood calcium even if grossly deficient. Vit. D deficiency significantly increases risk of many cancers, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, depression, influenza, osteoporosis etc.Vit. D will not raise blood calcium (this is regulated by parathyroid hormone) but will reduce risk of disease.I advise 5000 units/day. ...Read more
