- Her routine biochemistry showed elevated blood calcium at 14 mg/dl. This is dangerously high. *The doctors then checked her vitamin D level and it was also extremely high at 254 ng/ml.
- . . all of this woman’s lab tests including her liver tests, lipids, thyroid panel, and blood counts were completely normal. (other than Calcium)
