Can You Explain How Parathyroid Hormone Injections Make Bones Stronger When Too Much Parathyroid Hormone Made By The Body Weakens Bones
Can you explain how parathyroid hormone injections make bones stronger when too much parathyroid hormone made by the body weakens bones?
Good question!: Parathyroid hormone (pth_ causes two main effects - a decrease in phosphorous in the blood, and an increase in calcium. If a body makes too much PTH (constant, high levels) it will leach the calcium from the bones to keep the blood levels up. Injections, however, are intermittent, lower concentrations that can stimulate bone strengthening by absorbing the calcium in the bood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A hormone (from greek ὁρμή, "impetus") is a chemical released by a cell or a gland in one part of the body that sends out messages that affect cells in other parts of the organism. Only a little amount of hormone is required to alter cell metabolism. In essence, it is a chemical messenger that transports a signal from ...Read more
Parathyroid: Parathyroid hormone and calcium are linked. If parathyroid hormone increases so will calcium in most circumstances. If your doctor has discussed calcium and parathyroid hormone but you have not understood it, or it has never been discussed with you, I strongly recommend you go online and read the many articles (easy to understand) that discuss links between calcium and parathyroid hormone. ...Read more
Does coq10 contain hormone, bone growth? Could it possibly make my face bone jaw grow (wider)?Could coq10 improve energy level and thus work perform
When you gain weight do your bones get wider? Such as your pelvis and hip bones can they become wider? I know bone structure is genetic but can they?
Serum calcium only shows how much calcium is in blood. How do you know how much calcium is in your muscles objectively and bones?
DEXA scan: You ask an interesting question and although like many radiological procedures there is an element of inference in it you would be best served by talking to your doctor about getting a dexa scan also known as the dual energy x-ray absorptiometry scan. This attempts to estimate bone density and this is conceptually closer to your question although only a skeletal biopsy could answer for sure! ...Read more
Maybe ;): The thyroid hormone medicine should not affect your hair directly. However, if your dosage is low, it can indeed affect your hair, as well as cause many other symptoms. If you are having such a problem, some lab tests with your primary doctor should help identify the problem. If you are taking thyroid hormone, you should have your levels checked at least yearly. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Does osteoporosis target only the damaged areas of bone or does it build up in the good areas too and cause too much bone?
Affects everywhere: Osteoporosis is loss of skeletal bone. Although we typically measure changes in the spine, hip, and sometimes wrist, it is a process that effects every bone in the body. There are two major types of bone: trabecular (bone on the inside) and cortical (bone on the outside). The spine has mostly trabecular bone, the hip has both, and the wrist mostly cortical. ...Read more
Does Malnutrition and anorexia shrink or make bones smaller weaker inclunding the skull and ,can sleep deprived also have impact on bones?
Which amino acid makes you taller or aids in bone growth and lengthening pls just awnser the question ?
None of them.: there are no supplements which will make you taller or your limbs longer. Your height is mostly determined by genetics. There is nothing you could do to make yourself taller. By the age of 19, your bony plates have already fused, and you're unlikely to gain much more, if any height. Don't waste your money on supplements which offer false promises. Good luck. ...Read more
All or none removed: Hyperthyroidism has many causes, from inflammation to pituitary tumors to emotional stress states. Autoimmunity(the attack of one self by your own immune system) is a frequent cause. I have seen reduction of thyroid tissue as a treatment, but that approach usually needs repeating. Find the cause of the autoimmunity if possible, or remove a tumor if present..Until metabolic dysfunction is ruled. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When is it too late to take HGH injections, such as humatrope, (human growth hormone) to grow in height?
Can you tell me about hormone produced by the parathyroid gland influences the blood level rise of what product?
Calcium: Hi parathyroid hormone (PTH) has the task of preventing low blood calcium. About 99% of the body's calcium is in the skeleton. Blood calcium is tightly regulated. If there is a threat of low blood calcium, PTH is secreted to pull calcium out of bone and put it in the blood and to reduce urinary losses of calcium and to make active vitamin D (calcitriol) to augment GI absorption of calcium. ...Read more
What is it called when your body stops triggering your kidneys to keep enough fluids so your organs, etc funct properly? Hormone/Vit. deficit?...
Parathyroid hormone is elevated. Calcium.Mag are good.What can I do or take to lower the hormone level?
It depends: It depends on which hormone we are discussing. Effects ranging from gigantism/dwarfism, to inability to get pregnant are possibilities. So, it is difficult to say without knowing specifically which hormone we are concerned with. The six hormones produced by the pituitary are: fsh, LH (control sex hormones), gh (growth), TSH (thyroid), acth (adrenal), and prolactin (milk). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If low blood bicarb causes body to compensate by leaching ca from bones, can vitamin d which also influences ca indirectly influence bicarb ?
Get the facts first: You need to find out exactly what is going on with you before you self-diagnose a major metabolic disturbance. Forget "pop" internet accounts. Only if you have a calcium or phosphate wasting renal tubular disease that's also wasting bicarb will your bones go bad; overdose on vitamin d and you'll make yourself sick. Insist your physician explain clearly and get a consult if he/she can't. ...Read more
If cortisol can create osteoporosis would you expect the serum calcium to be higher than normal to reflect leached calcium from tissues?
Let me explain: Cortisol reduces bone formation, favoring long-term development of osteoporosis. It transports potassium out of cells in exchange for an equal number of sodium ions (see above).This can trigger the hyperkalemia of metabolic shock from surgery. Cortisol also reduces calcium absorption in the intestine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can the space between your spinal vertebrae grow? I read that it can grow somehow & make you permanently taller by as much as 2-3 inches.Is that true?
No: In real life, that does not happen. There might be some internet stories about events like that, but that doesn't happen to normal, real people. To look or seem taller, an adult may improve her posture, clothes, shoes, gracefulness, confidence, etc... ...Read more
Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more
