### How do you convert total calcium to ionized calcium?

To overcome this, various nomograms and formulae have been developed to estimate ionized calcium by correcting total calcium for total protein, albumin, globulins, and pH. The most widely used of these is the Payne et al. formula: Adjusted calcium (mmol/L) = Total calcium (mmol/L) + 0.02 [40 – serum albumin (g/L)].

What is the normal calcium level in the blood stream?

The normal regulation of calcium in our blood stream is similar to the way a thermostat works. The body is set to have a normal amount of calcium (somewhere between 8.6 to 10.3 mg/dL). The parathyroid glands can be thought of as the “calcium thermostat” of the body.

## What is the formula to convert mg/dL to mmol/L?

The formula to convert mg/dl to mmol/l is 1 Milligram Per Deciliter = 0.0555555555555556 Millimole Per Liter. mg/dl is 17.9856115107914 times Smaller than mmol/l. Enter the value of mg/dl and hit Convert to get value in mmol/l. Check our mg/dl to mmol/l converter. Need a reverse calculation from mmol/l to mg/dl?

What happens if calcium levels are too high in the body?

If the calcium levels are too high, the parathyroid glands will stop releasing PTH to try to bring the calcium back down to normal. Lab. Normal range (conventional units) Normal Range (SI units) Calcium (serum) 8.6-10.3 mg/dL. 2.2-2.6 mmol/L. Calcium (ionized) 4.4-5.2 mg/dL.
