I have hypoparathyroidism. My endo is keeping tabs on my calcium levels. On my last test with him he checked calcium through a renal panel. It was 8.9. He says that is a good level. I had an appointment with my regular family doctor the next day. She took bloodtest for other reasons and incluced a blood calcium test. Those results came to be 7.5. She says thats low.
My question is....is there a difference between these two blood test? Can one be normal and the other be low?
I am experiencing lots of sypmtoms of low calcium
