Understanding Serum Calcium in Bhubaneshwar


What is Serum Calcium in Bhubaneshwar?

The Serum Calcium test measures the levels of calcium present in the blood and is available at an affordable price in Bhubaneshwar with Tata 1mg labs. Calcium is a mineral responsible for many vital functions, such as maintaining bone strength, helping the nerves work correctly, cell signaling, muscle contraction, regulating heart rhythms, and blood clotting. Abnormal calcium levels can lead to complications like kidney disease, bone disease, and multiple organ tumors. 

Your doctor may suggest the Serum Calcium test if you experience symptoms suggestive of abnormal calcium levels, such as weakness, fatigue, excessive urination and thirst, nausea, stomach pain, constipation, irregular heartbeat, brittle nails, weak and brittle bones, muscle cramps, irritability, or confusion. This test can also monitor the treatment response in patients with known abnormal calcium levels and critically ill patients suffering from cancer or kidney disorders.

What does Serum Calcium measure?

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.

Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Serum Calcium in Bhubaneshwar


Frequently Asked Questions about Serum Calcium in Bhubaneshwar

Q. How is the Serum Calcium test performed?

A phlebotomist (a trained professional to perform blood draws) will clean your skin using an antiseptic alcohol cotton swab or wipe and take blood samples from your vein using a needle. The blood sample will be stored safely and transported to the laboratory for analysis.

Q. Are there any risks associated with the Serum Calcium test?

There is usually no risk associated with this test. However, some people may feel a slight sting while the needle is pricked and may experience some bleeding that is normal and usually not bothersome. Some people may experience slight swelling or bruising at the site of the needle prick. Applying ice 3-4 times daily for about a week may help reduce swelling and bruising.
