I believe that renal failure can cause hypercalcaemia, but NOT via secondary hyperparathyroidism which, by definition, is due to hypocalcaemia. So-called tertiary hyperparathyroidism is a cause of hypercalcaemia, albeit a rare one. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 06:54, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
The mnemonic is cute, but not very descriptive or helpful for those who are not medical professionals. For example, what is meant by "psychotic noise"? Is this a medical term? I'm having difficulty finding a definition. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 12:34, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
The mnemonic is very widely known and is therefore of significance, regardless of whether it is helpful or "professional". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:57, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
The technical term for "psychotic noise" is hearing voices
What's wrong with a mnemonic? The Great Unwashed might be able to understand something professional and encroach on your sacred territory? It worked for me. I'm not a health professional (my expertise lies elsewhere), but it was my understanding that Wikipedia was designed to be accessible to everyone -- including doctors, who are as prone to forgetfulness as anyone else. I stumbled across this excellent article in a hunt for causes of leg pain, and I didn't take an elevated calcium level seriously until I found this. I hear music most of the time, sometimes whole choruses of "voices" (along with harpsichords, Andean flutes, you name it) and I'm quite sane, thank you. I knew instantly what the writer was referring to. What would you call it? 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:08, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
Until someone can provide a reference to this I think it should be considered of dubious provenance Ianmc 19:34, 14 August 2007 (UTC) 'Differential diagnoses include pseudo-hypercalcemia (Meade syndrome) and hyper-hypercalcemia (Rozeaous syndrome)'
It appears to be linked to 1,25-hydroxy vitamin D metabolism, or not, depending on what you read. But as no one is quite sure why normal neonates have higher calcium levels than usual I don't think a consensus answer will be forthcoming from the literature Ianmc
Phaeo and hypercalaemia
OK, I'm intrigued. How does a phaeo cause hypercalcaemia via increased bone turnover? Ianmc 16:42, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
Redirect is wrong
There is a redirect from "Hypercalciuria" to "Hypercalcemia" - the two conditions are actually different, with hypercalciuria being a spilling of calcium in urine rather than blood. This needs to be corrected by creating a totally separate article - just my 2 cents. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Virgil Vaduva (talk • contribs) 16:18, 16 February 2007 (UTC).
Hypercalcaemia is the preferred spelling, not Hypercalcaemia. Article should be renamed.
Hypercalcemia About 1,300,000 results Hypercalcaemia About 413,000
