Calcium Test


Calcium is a mineral that is present in your bones, teeth and blood. Although the majority of calcium is in your bones and teeth, a small percentage of it is also present in your blood. Calcium is found in your blood in two forms. It is attached to proteins in your blood, and it is also ionised, or not attached to your blood proteins. A calcium test measures the amount of calcium (both bound and free) in your blood. Having an adequate amount of calcium in your blood is essential for your body to function properly. Calcium helps your muscles, your heart, and your nerves to function. It also helps your blood to move through your blood vessels. Calcium also helps your body to release certain hormones. Too little or too much calcium in your blood can cause thyroid /parathyroid disorder, bone disease, kidney disease, malnourishment, and many other conditions.
