Calcium / Corrected Calcium

Your simple blood test checks the levels of calcium in your blood to help determine whether your levels are normal for your age and gender.  We also include a check of your albumin levels, since about half of the calcium in your blood is bound by albumin – this allows us to give you a more accurate reading of your true calcium levels, by way of your corrected calcium reading.

Calcium / Corrected Calcium

Together with your calcium blood test result, you’ll also receive other relevant readings including glucose, cholesterol and uric acid to help put your result into the proper context.

Essential for healthy bone and muscle function, calcium is the most common mineral in the body. As well as building teeth and bones, calcium helps nerves to function, muscle contraction, enables your blood to clot and helps your heart beat.

Most of the calcium in your body is stored in your bones and teeth. The rest is in your blood. This test will check the levels of calcium found in your blood, giving a corrected calcium level taking into account the amount bound by albumin in your body.  Abnormally high levels of calcium in your blood (hypercalcaemia) can cause kidney stones, weaken your bones and impair your heart and brain function.  Hypercalcaemia is often a result of an overactive thyroid, but can also indicate certain types of cancer or tuberculosis. Low levels, or hypocalcaemia, can be due to an underactive thyroid.  Low calcium levels can also be caused by kidney disease, low protein or vitamin D, or high phosphate.

All our tests have been specially designed to be convenient and non-invasive. Once you’ve booked your appointment, full preparation instructions will be provided in your confirmation email or letter. You can continue to eat and drink normally before your appointment, and you’ll also remain fully clothed throughout.

Which readings are included?

Calcium is essential for healthy bone and muscle function. About 99% of it is found in the bones, and most of the rest circulates in the blood.
Albumin is the most abundant protein in the blood. It keeps fluid from leaking out of blood vessels; nourishes tissues; and carries hormones, vitamins, drugs and substances such as calcium throughout the body.
Corrected calcium is a calculation of your total calcium concentration, which takes into account possible abnormal albumin levels. This is because high albumin levels may cause your calcium result to appear falsely high or low.
High levels of uric acid can indicate gout, a form of inflammatory arthritis which causes swelling of the joints. Low levels of uric acid can be a symptom of kidney or liver disease.
Your general health markers include Globulin, Protein and Iron. Abnormal levels of any of these can indicate liver and kidney disorders. Additionally, iron deficiency may indicate anaemia or an underlying problem with your stomach, bowel or kidneys.
This includes tests for Aspartate Transferase (AST), Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), Alkaline Phosphate (ALP), Gamma GT and Bilirubin. These enzymes are found in the liver and other vital organs. Levels of these enzymes are a common measure of your overall liver health and function. Abnormal levels can help indicate a range of health conditions including liver damage, bone disorders, blood disorders and jaundice.
This includes tests for Sodium, Urea and Creatinine. Abnormal levels can indicate impaired kidney function and fluid imbalance in your body. You’ll also get a reading for your eGFR (estimated glomerular filtration rate), used to ascertain how efficiently and effectively your kidneys are working.
This type 2 diabetes check measures the level of glucose in your blood. Around half a million people in the UK have undiagnosed diabetes, and although it increases your risk of developing serious illnesses including cancer and heart disease, in many cases the condition can be treated or even reversed through diet and lifestyle changes.
You'll receive 5 key readings including LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) or “bad” cholesterol, HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) or “good” cholesterol, Triglycerides, Total cholesterol and HDL/total cholesterol ratio. Together, these readings are used to determine whether your cholesterol is too high. High cholesterol can dramatically increase your risk of serious health conditions like heart attack, stroke, peripheral arterial disease and atherosclerosis. Over 50% of UK adults have high cholesterol.
