Thirteen Year + High Calcium Count

My 13 year old daughter has a high calcium count although the GP has told us not to worry too much - he didn't specify what the causes could be or what they were indicative of. Could you give me some advice and further information please.

Dear Sally - Anne
No this must be examined further as it can be due to kidney or parathyroid gland problems - ask him to refer you to a physician for a second opinion. See this article
