Is a calcium level of 8.4 considered low? If so what can I do to change that? I am on vitamin d supplements as prescribed by a doctor

In brief: Close to normal

Your calcium level is at the lower end of the normal range of 8.
5-10.5. Consult your physician who ordered the test to interpret your result with other lab results such as vit D and parathyroid levels in addition to bone film to make a proper determination. You may need a referral to a specialist. Good luck!
