Understanding Calcium Total & Ionized in New Delhi


What is Calcium Total & Ionized in New Delhi?

Calcium is a mineral found in the body responsible for many vital functions like maintaining bone strength, muscles, nerve function, and blood clotting. It is usually present in two forms in blood- "bound calcium," which is attached to proteins in the blood, and "free calcium or ionized calcium," which is not attached to any protein. Calcium Total & Ionized test individually measures both free & total calcium in the blood. This test is done as part of routine health checkups or if you have symptoms of abnormal calcium levels, such as excessive urination and thirst, constipation, irregular heartbeat, brittle nails, weak and brittle bones, muscle cramps, irritability, or confusion. It may also be done to diagnose diseases that may cause calcium abnormalities, such as thyroid and parathyroid disorders, heart diseases, kidney diseases, bone disorders, and dental diseases and disorders that affect how your intestines absorb nutrients like calcium. Too much calcium in your blood can weaken your bones, create kidney stones, and interfere with the normal functioning of the heart and brain. Ionized calcium is the free calcium floating in the blood and is metabolically active.

Serum Calcium

The Serum Calcium test measures the levels of calcium in the body. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body; most of it is present in the bones and teeth, and the remaining portion (around 1%) is found in the blood. It is usually present in two forms in blood in about equal amounts: "bound calcium," which is attached to proteins in the blood, and "free calcium or ionized calcium," which is not attached to any protein. 

The Serum Calcium test cannot be used to check for lack of calcium in your diet or osteoporosis (loss of calcium from bones) as the body can have normal calcium levels even in dietary calcium deficiency. Moreover, the body can normalize mild calcium deficiency by releasing the calcium stored in bones.
