Corrected Calcium Testing
How to check your Corrected Calcium levels with a home fingerprick blood test kit
What Is A Corrected Calcium Test For?
The Corrected Calcium Test allows you to accurately check your levels of Corrected Calcium in a fingerprick blood sample.
Calcium binds to proteins in the blood, especially albumin. So when albumin levels are low, calcium levels will be measured as low, even though the level of unbound calcium in the blood may be normal.
A corrected calcium result aims to compensate for the serum albumin level and indicates the true calcium level.
What If Corrected Calcium Test Levels Are High?
High calcium levels are known as hypercalcaemia, meaning you have too much calcium in your blood. There are a wide range of causes of high calcium and this can lead to a number of health issues. Further investigation is required to address the cause.
