Ionized Calcium 4.65, PTH 133, Calcium 10.3, Vitamin D 7, Phosphorus 4.9, recurrent Kidney stones. Thyroid lobe, two parathyroids removed in 2004.

Ionized Calcium 4.65, PTH 133, Calcium 10.3, Vitamin D 7, Phosphorus 4.9, recurrent Kidney stones. Thyroid lobe,  two parathyroids removed in 2004.

Uncertain: These test results don't add up to a straight forward answer. However, I would be concerned about the possibility of recurrent primary hyperparathyroidism. You should take Vit D to eliminate Vit D deficiency as a cause for high PTH levels. Once this is done, if you still have high PTH with high calcium levels, you have recurrent primary HPTH and will need surgery again. ...Read more

What else could cause elevated pth but normal calcium other than parathyroid?

What else could cause elevated pth but normal calcium other than parathyroid?

Low Vitamin D: Low vitamin d can cause secondary hyperparathyroidism (high PTH level due to something outside of the parathyroid gland). Low vitamin d levels can make someone's calcium lower than it should be (even if it's still in the normal range). The parathyroid glands make more PTH to try to get the calcium back up where it should be. ...Read more

My dr. Won't check pth because my calcium levels are consistently normal. Will calcium always be elevated in parathyroid disorders?

My dr. Won't check pth because my calcium levels are consistently normal. Will calcium always be elevated in parathyroid disorders?

Parathyroid test: Parathyroid levels are very closely reflected by your calcium levels my impression is you are concerned about over active and general totally normal calcium is enough there are rare cases where actual assessment by direct measurements is of value in a fair number of patients with vitamind insufficiency we see high PTH levels which is a costly way to decide all of us need calcium and vitamin d. ...Read more

My cousin has low vitamin d, high calcium levels, but has normal parathyroid hormone levels. What could cause this? Doesn't make sense to me.

My cousin has low vitamin d, high calcium levels, but has normal parathyroid hormone levels.  What could cause this?  Doesn't make sense to me.

many possiblities: While hyperparathyroidism is by far the most common cause of elevated serum calcium, there are many other possible causes. Hopefully your cousin does not have cancer, the next most common cause, but there are still many other possibilities. It is important for your cousin to see a good doctor to find the cause.
