Exams and Tests
A simple blood test provides the diagnostic information needed for hypercalcemia. Diagnosing the causes of hypercalcemia is often more difficult and complicated. A detailed history and physical examination is required in addition to other tests, such as additional blood tests (typically to check PTH and vitamin D levels), urine evaluation (urinalysis), X-rays, and other imaging procedures.
