In brief: 8.5to10.4

Nrmal Calcum level is 8.
5to10.4 mgm/deciliter Your level is high normal Hyperparathyroidism is when parathyroid gland produces too much hormone and that causes blood calcium to go up You should repeat calcium level,25 hydroxyl vitD level and 24 hour urine for calcium as well Hypothyroidism sometimes also occurs separately with Huperparathyroidism High calcium diet can contribute to high calcium l

In brief: Hypercalcemia

Has a number of causes the most common of which is over-active parathyroid gland(s).
Kidney compromise and diet(milk alkali syndrome-rare) are other causes. Your level should be repeated along with a test for pth, phosphorus and renal functions. The most serious complication of elevated calcium (usually near or above 13) is cardiac arrythmia. Talk to your doctor.
