Ionized calcium is a test that measures the level of calcium in your blood. Calcium is a mineral that is essential for many body processes, including bone health, nerve function, and muscle contraction.

There are many different diseases that can be diagnosed with an ionized calcium test. Some of the more common ones include:

-Cancer: Ionized calcium levels can be elevated in cancerous cells, which can help to diagnose the disease.
-Kidney disease: Kidney problems can cause calcium levels to become imbalanced, which can be detected with this test.
-Heart disease: Abnormalities in calcium levels can sometimes be indicative of heart problems.
-Bone disorders: This test can help to diagnose conditions such as osteoporosis or Paget's disease.

The test may also be ordered when calcium levels are found to be low on a routine blood test.
Certain conditions can cause low ionized calcium levels, including:

  • Parathyroid disorders
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Kidney disease

  • Malabsorption syndromes
