Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, underlying cause of high calcium level in blood is matter of concern the most common cause of this it is thyroid dysfunction and then comes the malignancy in absence of this other causes needs to be differentiated and for that it may requires several test and clinical examination hope this information helps.

Hello, I have high calcium in my blood. No real cause has been detected yet. Have had breast cancer history, since 2004, but cancer free according last tests. I am 59 y.o femaile from Ukraine and have been under Chernobyl attack.. and 911 as well (lucky me...:)) Have some classical symptoms and do not feel myself for some time now. What kind of herbs can be considered in this condition? any suggestions? Thank you all, and have a good health and loving mind:))

My husband has been in the hospital for two weeks with high calcium levels at 14.4. They have been running tests with his blood and urine . They did remove a lymph node in the chest and ran a biopsy on several small ones while there. it came back as good.I am wondering now if he has hyperthyroidism ? We are going to a kidney Doctor Wednesday but do we need to be seeing a thyroid Doctor also. He has lost over 50 lbs since December 2016.

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.
