Hi there. I got a call from my g.P to have bloods retaken. My calcium level is extremely high. What does this indicate?

In brief: Parathyroid

The most common cause of high calcium in the outpt setting is a parathyroid problem/growth.
I agree with your doctor though. Before pursuing extensive workup, i would repeat the blood test along with a parathyroid level to make sure it wasn't a lab error.
