What does the serum calcium test measure?

Calcium is a mineral present in the teeth and bone. Calcium is required by the body for performing essential neuron, muscle, and cardiac functions. High or low calcium levels can indicate some health problems, including bone disease, thyroid illness, renal disease, or other medical issues.

The serum calcium test checks the following types of calcium in the body:

  • Bound calcium: Calcium attached to other anions and proteins like albumin
  • Unbound Calcium/ Ionized Calcium: Calcium that is not bound to proteins and flows freely in the blood

The amount of calcium in your bones cannot be checked by a calcium blood test. A bone density test, however, can be used to examine your bone health and density (DEXA scan).

The serum calcium test is also known as the total calcium test.

Risks/side effects of serum calcium test

There are usually no side effects or risks associated with a serum calcium test. However, you might feel some pain for a few days in the area from where the blood will be taken using a needle.
