  • Hi there. As I said in my original reply, the values that you have given can't really be interpreted because serum calcium has to be corrected with serum albumin. I have included a link to a study that you might find useful for a detailed explanation of critical serum calcium values. Because I am not your treating physician and do not know what the indication was for ordering the tests, I can't speculate about what to do next for your care. If I were you, I would absolutely return to the physician who ordered these tests and discuss your symptoms. The best practice is to treat the patient, not the number. I hope this information is useful. http://arpa.allenpress.com/arpaonline/?request=get-document&doi=10.1043%2F1543-2165(2006)130%5B828:EOTSCC%5D2.0.CO%3B2
