Hypercalcemia: Calcium Lvels are VERY HIGH. Need HOSPITALIZATION to bring down Calcium levels specially if she is confused and symptomatic. iPTH can also be checked, Get CT scan of NECK and Chest as well. But bottom line is that HYPERcalcemia at this level must be investigated soon. ...Read more

Low vitamin D level (19), High phosphorus level (4.5), High PTH level (70). What could be the cause of this? Serum Calcium level is normal.

Low vitamin D level (19), High phosphorus level (4.5), High PTH level (70). What could be the cause of this? Serum Calcium level is normal.

Treat low vit D: I would get the low vitamin D treated and then recheck the labs. The 25OH vit D should be above 30. This will likely correct any of the other mild reported lab abnormalities. ...Read more

Vitamin D,1, 25-Dihydroxy 90 pg/mL. Calcium 9.7 mg/dL. PTH 49 pg/mL. hsCRP 0.2 mg/L. Feeling well. No D Hydroxy was done. What would cause the High D?

Vitamin D: 90 pg/ml for 1-25 D is a bit high but not too bad when seen with the other numbers. I don't know why 1-25 but not 25 hydroxy vitamin d was not done. Have your doctor set that up for you. ...Read more

My vitamin B12 level was 292. Is this too low? I was deficient in folate (folic acid) and my homocysteine level was 13.5.

My vitamin B12 level was 292. Is this too low? I was deficient in folate (folic acid) and my homocysteine level was 13.5.

Folate (folic acid) dieficiency: Would be uncommon in an 18 yo. A B12 level between 200 and 400 can be difficult to interpret. Under 200 clearly low and over 400 likely ok. In between is a grey area. ...Read more

Parathyroid hormone at 170pg/ml, vit d at 8ng/ml, calcium serum 10.2 yesterday and 9.1 today, bone mineral density t-score -1.5.. What does this mean?

Parathyroid hormone at 170pg/ml, vit d at 8ng/ml, calcium serum 10.2 yesterday and 9.1 today, bone mineral density t-score -1.5.. What does this mean?

Bones, Vit D: This is complex, and a precise answer cannot be given on line. Several thoughts: the PTH is high. But this may not reflect anything wrong with the parathyroid glands. Low vit d will result in a reflex increase in pth, and usually the serum ca stays normal, but there is increased bone resorption. Why is the vit d so low? ...Read more

High serum Fe 208,high sat 68,high/norm Hg,HC & low/norm ferritin 46,d/c FeGlucconate (27mg elm)x12days ago. Am I not storing the iron?

High serum Fe 208,high sat 68,high/norm Hg,HC & low/norm ferritin 46,d/c FeGlucconate (27mg elm)x12days ago. Am I not storing the iron?

Big picture: High iron / iron sat is meaningless as a measure of storage iron if you're taking ferrous gluconate. Why were you on it in the first place? If it's to correct heavy monthly iron loss, ask your physician whether to continue it prophylactically so you don't get a recurrence. ...Read more

My 24H urine cortisol test result shows free cortisol level as 5.44 ug/dl. Is this a normal level?

My 24H urine cortisol test result shows free cortisol level as 5.44 ug/dl. Is this a normal level?

Not enough info: For a 24 hour urine free cortisol test, you want to know the total cortisol on 24 hours. It will be in mcg/24 hours. You are telling me the concentration without the volume of urine. It is the total cortisol that we need to know in 24 hrs. Also there are differences among lab assays and you generally need to follow the local labs referemce range. Typically if total is greater than 130 then high. ...Read more
