Calcium - Corrected

Calcium, an essential mineral, is required for various functions in the body, including nerve function, muscle contraction, blood clotting, and bone health. Most of the calcium in the body is stored in the bones and teeth. A small amount circulates in the blood in both bound and unbound (free) forms. Corrected calcium or adjusted calcium test measures the total calcium levels in your blood, taking into account the level of protein, particularly albumin, in your blood.

  • Test Name Calcium - Corrected
  • Sample Type Blood
  • Preparations Required No special preparation is required before this test.
  • Report Time 4 hours

Calcium levels in the body are tightly regulated by the parathyroid hormone (PTH) and vitamin D. A corrected calcium test is often ordered as a part of routine metabolic panel screening or when you have symptoms like fatigue, muscle weakness, abnormal heart rates, or bone fractures that suggest abnormalities in calcium metabolism.
