Ever heard of water deficiency apnea? I crave water @ night. Usually drink 1/2-1 gallon a night. Concerns me because i wont urinate but maybe once the night & wake up swollen, especially my face & eyes. My calcium levels stay on the high end, so my dr. Decided to start screening me for lung , laryngeal , & esophageal cancer every couple of yrs. she says high calcium levels can be a precursor to certain cancers...? Dont know if its even relevent, but i have psoriasis & have problems w low blood sugar regularly (its pancreatic, i just produce too much insulin). Im 25, white, female, 5 2 , 200lb. YYYY@YYYY

I have recently been diagnosed with several nodules on my thyroid by ultrasound. Blood work has returned to my general prac. with no thyroid hormone abnormalities, but high in calcium. I am awaiting a call from general prac. on what she will order re: calcium irregularities, and have an appt. next week with endocrinologist. I am not on calcium supplements, only Cymbalta, Vit D, and Premarin vaginal cream 2xwk. What could high cal be indicative of.

My Primary MDs office called to inform me that he wanted more blood work done on me because my calcium level was high and he wanted that repeated plus a speccific hormone level. I assume it was for thyroid. Among the meds I taKE I take 600mg of Calcium 2x a day.
