    Test Description

    Calcium, RBC

    Calcium forms structural salts for bones and teeth. It is essential for growth, blood-clotting, muscle contraction, nerve transmission, cell membrane permeability, and is a catalyst in many reactions. Decreased levels may cause weak bones and teeth, stunted growth, early tooth loss, muscle cramps and osteoporosis. It is found in milk and dairy products, soybean products, yogurt, turnip greens, broccoli, canned salmon, sardines and hard water.
