Hello Sir,
There are many variables to an answer to your question. I can tell you some of the possible reasons for this elevation. Medications can cause an increase. Then, consider:
kidney disease
liver disease
tuberculosis
hyperparathyroidism
sarcoidosis
histoplasmosis
Your doctor will have to run some more tests. In the meantime avoid all salmon and fish, fortified milk products, supplements with calcium or vitamin D, of course.
