Hypercalcemia (Elevated Calcium Levels) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
If the underlying cause is hyperparathyroidism (particularly from an adenoma), there are certain criteria that are reviewed to discuss if surgery should be considered. These criteria include the absolute calcium level, a history of kidney stones or other calcium-related complications, and the amount of calcium measured in a 24-hour urine collection. Based on these findings, surgical removal of the adenoma may be considered.
