  • This is also answered on the link I posted in your last thread ;) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperparathyroidism#Diagnosis In secondary (and perhaps tertiary) it doesn't have to be high. According to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primary_hyperparathyroidism "The diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism is made by blood tests. Serum calcium levels are elevated." So it appears that it primary hyperparathyroidism, serum calcium is elevated.
