    Calcium is one among the most common tests ordered in basic or routine health screening. Blood Calcium test is typically ordered to diagnose conditions relating to bone, heart, nerves, kidney and teeth. Calcium test can be ordered by the doctor if certain conditions such as thyroid disorders, bone diseases, neurological disorders, and kidney stones are suspected

A calcium test is often recommended by doctors to screen and diagnose any conditions related to bones, heart, kidney, nerves and your teeth. Your doctor may also recommend this test if you show signs of hyperthyroidism

Most of the calcium that is present in the blood exists in combination with phosphorous. Calcium and Phosphorus together along with proteins and forms a specialized structure at the bones, which makes them strong. Hence, calcium is an important component in bone health. About 1% of all calcium within the body is present in blood and tissues and plays many important roles. Calcium is critically important for blood clotting, stabilising blood pressure, normal brain function and also for communication of messages within the cells. The role of calcium within the body is additionally tightly linked to that of vitamin D.

Reference Values

Normal values:  8.5 to 10.2 mg/dL

Reference Value depends on multiple factors such as age, gender and medical history.
