I believe I have pseudohypoparathyroidism, does this need to be treated?

I believe I have pseudohypoparathyroidism, does this need to be treated?

Interesting!: Hi. That's a rare genetic disease! See an endocrinologist. Since pseudohypoparathyroidism presents with low serum calcium and calcitriol (the active form of vitamin D), these usually need to be replaced (serum calcium to the LOW end of normal so you don't lose too much calcium in the urine and get kidney stones). If you are right and you have it, you'll thrill some endocrinologist! All the best. ...Read more

See an endocrinologist with an interest in calcium metabolism. Good luck! ...Read more
