1 Hand Chart for Hypercalcemia!
Hypercalcemia or hypercalcaemia is an elevated calcium (Ca2+) level in the blood, usually caused by primary hyperparathyroidism and malignancy (with cancer often involved).
Prevalence: close to 1 in 4,000 people have hypercalcemia.
One rather superficial hand chart is available for hypercalcemia describing only 3 characteristics in the dermatoglyphics, involving: 1) small ulnar loop in hypothenar area, 2) distal loop in fourth interdigital zone, 3) increased atd angle - see picture below.
NOTICE: Individual hand features described below should not get associated in isolation with any theme; only combinations involving multiple hand levels have potential for diagnostic purposes.

Other significant hand signs (not reported inside the hand charts):
The best known hand related symptoms that are highly suggestive of hypercalcemia are: hand- or finger weakness (11%), arm cramps or spasms (11%) & irregular appearing nails (11%); although none of these symptoms have specific high predictability for hypercalcemia (source: symcat.com).
Other hand signs incidently linked with hypercalcemia are: short hands with stubby fingers & clubbing of fingers.
[Notice: HYPOcalcemia (= low calcium level in the blood) is associated with cold hands, tingling hand, or 'pins and needles' sensations in the hands; in chronic HYPOcalcemia, dry skin, coarse hair, and brittle nails can be seen]
with hypercalcemia (combined with acrodysostosis).
All significant hand signs listed above for hypercalcemia together cover five out of the nine perspectives of the hand as defined according Multi-Perspective Hand Reading (including hand level 2, 3, 5, 7 & 8).
A summary of the most significant hand sign combinations in hypercalcemia is described here:
