Re: testing calcium levels
Blood calcium levels are regulated by the body to stay in the normal range ( 9-10.5) The body needs it there to continue the electrical synapses. In order to keep it normal the body will take calcium from the bone if it is too low, or excrete it in the urine if too high.
Forteo is not giving you calcium. It tells your body to store calcium in the bones.
So in answer to your question- no you do not need to check your blood calcium.
I assume the doc ordered it because of osteoporosis and dexa scan results.
Good luck with Forteo!
