    I found this.

    Higher than normal levels may be due to a number of health conditions. Common causes include:

    • Being on bed rest for a long time
    • Taking too much calcium or vitamin D
    • HIV/AIDS
    • Hyperparathyroidism
    • Infections that cause granulomas such as tuberculosis and certain fungal and mycobacterial infections
    • Metastatic bone tumor
    • Multiple myeloma
    • Overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism) or too much thyroid hormone replacement medication
    • Paget's disease
    • Sarcoidosis
    • Tumors producing a parathyroid hormone-like substance
    • Use of certain medications such as lithium, tamoxifen, and thiazides

    Your doctor is the one you need to be consulting about your calcium levels for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

    The normal range for calcium is 8.5 - 10.5.
    Are you sure yours says 625??
    I ask because 625 mg is a common amount in calcium supplements.
