Corrected Calcium Testing
How to check your Corrected Calcium levels with a home finger-prick blood test kit
What Is A Corrected Calcium Test For?
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.
