Thanks for writing in.
I dont think you need to worry. Your present calcium is perfectly normal. Normal range is 9 to 11. Just let me know your previous reports and how long you have received the treatment.
As of now, you can safely stop the supplements. But I would like to review the old reports first.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I started the Calcium supplements in 2009, the XXXXXXX tea extract in 2010 and the 1,000 Vitamin D in 2010.

My bloodwork results are all perfect except the calcium.

The number last year was 10.5 and same year before.

Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for writing back.
Your calcium is perfectly normal. Also you can stop treatment completely.
Just considering the post menopausal age, it will be better to continue XXXXXXX herbal remedies. Check periodically calcium level. If it decreases in due course, we can restart the treatment again.
Hope this helps
Thanking you.
