What are things you should know if you have an elevated pth, normal calcium level and vitamin d deficiency?

Correct D deficiency

Vitamins_and_supplements
Vitamin D deficiency reduces intestinal calcium absorption and stimulates parathyroid hormone secretion which maintains the blood calcium in the normal range until it is so severe that a low blood calcium develops. Correction of D deficiency restores the parathyroid hormone and calcium to normal.

Could my severe vitamin D deficiency be the cause of my extremely high complement CH50 level? C3 and C4 are normal.

No

Vitamin_d
I'd ignore the high CH50 levels. This is a lab test that's hard to do and even harder to interpret.

1.if i have panic attacks should i test vit D or D3? which one? 2.can i have a normal calcium level and vitamin D deficiency?

Get D3 level checked

Calcium
Vitamin D deficiency can cause anxiety and could potentially lead to panic attacks, but it would be relatively low on the list of possibilities. It is easy to check you level with a blood test. Vitamin D3 level is best. You can have a normal calcium and deficient vitamin D. Low D levels lead to bone calcium loss to replenish calcium levels in the blood which remain normal.

Dr. Philip A. Kern answered:

Could a severe Vitamin D deficiency mask PRIMARY hyperparathyroidism by lowering serum calcium levels? [Would u see low-normal calcium and high PTH?]

Primary hyperpara

Calcium
Low Vit D is common in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Although it is possible that it can mask the hypercalcemia, usually it does not. If your D is low, and you have hyperpara, you will likely still have a high Ca. The low D may make the PTH level even higher, and vit D supplements should be given and they will not exacerbate the high calcium. This is complex. See endocrinologist.

Dexpression,lathergic, low level of vitamin b12. And vitamin d deficiency, low level of energy?

And your question?

Open-uri20140213-16196-1n9s9ri
I'm not sure what you are asking. Yes, Vit D deficiency can cause fatigue. It is easy to correct with 5-8000 iu of D3/day. B12 deficiency can be serious too- try 1000 mcg of sublingual B12/day & if that does not help try injections. See http://bit.ly/1fnT3OX & http://bit.ly/1607TG3 If fatigue persists after correcting then see a good doc to explore the many other possible causes of fatigue.

Can vitamin d deficiency cause fatigue or depression/anxiety? I am especially concerned with the fatigue. My blood level was a 10.

Yes, & many other

Stringio
possibilities. ↓D3, Calcitriol, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, long assoc. with Ca+2 absorption & bone strength. More recently with ↓heart muscle strength, ↑susceptibility to infections, ↑depression, etc. At the same time, we are complex mind-over-matter creatures, issues complex, lots of unknowns, optimal level unknown, esp. at single individual level. Suggest supplement D3 to > 40 & check other issue

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

I have been diagnosed with vitamin d deficiency, currently taking Fultium D capsules and Calceous tablets, but I look really pale is this normal?

Maybe not related

Some people have naturally pale skin complexion and so it is normal for those folks. In temperate zone, skin tone is somewhat darker in summer months and gets lighter with fall/winter. If your skin has always been so, then it it normal. If new, then anemia maybe a cause. But doc told u having low vitD, likely anemia was checked. Adequate sun exposure will help. Good luck
