      normal ca range is 2.1 - 2.55   Mine was first noted at 2.65 and it varied, once it was 2.75 and at its hightest it got to 2.9.

      normal PTH  range is  1.6 - 7.2  mine was 8.58

      Levels can fluctuate and labs can vary very slightly.

      Hope this helps.

      you're welcome Ed.  If your doctor ignores your elevated levels, try another doctor.  The damage this disease causes to the body is measured by the clock not how high the calcium goes so gettting it sorted out is paramount, it only gets worse with time.  Let us know how you get on.

      Good luck.
