Hypercalcemia (Elevated Calcium Levels) (cont.)

Prevention

Hypercalcemia cannot be prevented, but early detection of the condition allows for normalization of calcium levels and leads to an early medical evaluation to determine the cause. If there is a known family history of hypercalcemia or hyperparathyroidism, the patient should tell the treating health care practitioner. Together, the patient and health care practitioner can determine if screening is warranted.
