Under physiological conditions, serum calcium concentration is tightly regulated. Abnormalities of parathyroid function, bone resorption, renal calcium reabsorption or dihydroxylation of vitamin D may cause regulatory mechanisms to fail and serum calcium to rise. Serum calcium is bound to albumin, and measurements should be adjusted for serum albumin. This guideline aims to take the non-specialist through the initial phase of assessment and management.
