calcium blood level 17?

Sister has calcium blood level of 17. She's been sick at stomach 4 days, just admitted to CCU. What kind of diagnosis can i expect and can she handle the level of 17. I have read it is fatal.

Please give me information about calcium blood levels at 17. Is this fatal or can it be treated and if so how fast must it be treated?

Re: calcium blood level 17?

Does she have hyperparathyroidism? How old is she? Did she have PTH level checked? There are drugs that can lower the calcium level.
