Hypercalcemia: Blood calcium levels above the normal range of 9-10.5 mg./dl. Can be due to excess skeletal calcium release, increase intestinal calcium absorption, or decrease renal calcium excretion. Some effects are; renal or biliary stones, bone pain, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, polyurea, depression/anxiety/cognitive deficits/insomnia. ...Read more
If one is D3 deficient in presence of mildly elevated calcium less than 10.4, can D3 reduce blood calcium values? What other nutrients can help?
Vitamin D: A calcium of 10.4 or around that is a higher level. If one supplements with D3, or cholecalciferol, this can actually elevate your calcium levels. There are multiple players within this axis including, the parathyroid hormone, calcium, phosphorous, albumin and Vitamin D. Please see your doctor where you can have a full work-up and avoid supplements until doing so. ...Read more

It would require knowing the actual calcium level and serum Albumin level to provide a meaningful opinion. ...Read more
