Do I have Hypocalcemia based on my report ?

Hypocalcemia? My doctor gave me a blood test and called. She said my surgar level was fine, (Type II), liver was fine, but my calcium level was slightly elevated and to not take my calcium supplements. Could I have hypocalcemia? And can this be corrected or reversed if I do? My calcium levels are slightly elevated according to my doctor. Had blood work, my sugar is fine, (Type II) and liver was O.K. I m worried if I have the conditon hypocalcemia, if so can it be reversed?
