What causes a high calcium level?

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.

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. Your high calcium level has no relation with your thyroid. It may be due to vit D or some parathyroid disease. You should investigate for parathyroid hormone test. Take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.

My 7 month old has high calcium levels in her blood...this was the second blood test in about 7 weeks and it was a bit higher this time than the last. I am just looking for what it could be...we were referred to a pediatric endrocinologist but all the doctor told me was it could be serious so we need to get it checked out by a specialist.

I have very low estrogen what would be a good med to ask for to make me have a cycle and ovulate?

Thanks. What is the difference in purchasing Premarin from Canada vs the USA? I don t have insurance for Premarin anymore and the least I can buy it for is $93.00 for 30 day supply. For about 25 years I ve taken Premarin .625 but can t afford it anymore. It seems to be cheaper in Canada but I wonder if it is the same as what I am getting here in the USA?
