Description

Ionized Calcium Test

Ionized Calcium Test – This test is performed to get an accurate representation and assessment of Ionized calcium levels. This gives more information about active, ionized calcium, particularly in the presence of high concentrations of protein, hypoparathyroidism, and hyperparathyroidism.

What is an ionized calcium test?

Calcium is an important mineral that your body uses. It increases the strength of your bones and teeth and helps your muscles and nerves function. A serum calcium blood test measures the total calcium in your blood.

There are several forms of calcium in your blood. These include ionized calcium, calcium bound to other minerals called anions, and calcium bound to proteins like albumin. Ionized calcium, also known as free calcium, is the most active form.

Why do I need an ionized calcium test?

A serum calcium test usually checks the total amount of calcium in your blood. This includes ionized calcium and calcium bound to proteins and anions. Your doctor may want to check your blood calcium levels if you have signs of kidney disease, certain kinds of cancers, or problems with your parathyroid gland.

Ionized calcium levels give more information about active, ionized calcium. It may be important to know your ionized calcium levels if you have abnormal levels of proteins, such as albumin or immunoglobulins in your blood. If the balance between bound calcium and free calcium isn’t normal, it’s important to find out why. Free calcium and bound calcium each typically make up half of your body’s total calcium. An imbalance can be a sign of a major health issue.

You may need to have your ionized calcium level checked if:

  • you’re receiving blood transfusions
  • you’re critically ill and on intravenous (IV) fluids
  • you’re having major surgery
  • you have abnormal levels of blood proteins

In these cases, it’s important to understand exactly how much free calcium you have available.

Low levels of free calcium can cause your heart rate to slow down or speed up, cause muscle spasms, and even result in a coma. Your doctor may order an ionized calcium test if you have any signs of numbness around your mouth or in your hands and feet, or if you have muscle spasms in the same areas. These are symptoms of low free calcium levels.

An ionized calcium test is harder to perform than a serum calcium test. It requires special handling of the blood sample, and it’s only done in certain cases.
