Are any of these levels linked to thyroid or parathyroid conditions?
I'm confused how my calcium levels can be quite good, yet vitamin D which helps the absorption of calcium is so low. My TSH is normal and I am on Oroxine (Australian Thyroxine).
Has anyone had something similar? I've also had a blood test to check for Coeliac disease, and it came back normal.
My apologies...I meant to type high.
Your albumin is up but not extremely high(borderline) but yes, keep an eye on things.
High albumin concentrations.
Elevated concentrations of albumin in blood are caused by a relative loss of water. This occurs in dehydration, or with prolonged use of a tourniquet. There are no pathological conditions other than dehydration associated with a high albumin concentration. Note however that elevated albumin may indicate artefactual elevation of other analytes such as haemoglobin, lipids and calcium.
I have had similar test results although I have no idea what it means. My albumin has been high, my total protein has been high, my vitamin d -25 is slightly low and my blood phosphate is moderately low. My calcium is actually on the high side of normal. Have they checked your blood phosphate? From what I've read, vitamin d and phosphate can be low and calcium high due to hormone and parathyroid problems as the body is reabsorbing the phosphate to keep the calcium from going too high or something along those lines. I read that on a site that I found on the internet under a search for parathyroid.
