Parathyroid Hormone Vitamin Calcium Tsh
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
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
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.

What vitamins in a persons body can affect breathing.Muscles if calcium and magnesium are good but have elevated parathyroid hormone?
Whoa: Your breathing muscles need no special vitamins beyond what you'll get with a halfway reasonable diet. What concerns me is your having an elevated parathyroid hormone. Either you have a parathyroid adenoma / hyperplasia which is really serious, or you are vitamin d deficient. You need to address this. You'll feel much better. Again, please forgive my frankness & do right by yourself. ...Read more

What does it mean if my parathyroid hormone is high (87.8pg/mL) and my blood calcium is normal (9.7mg/dL)? My vitamins D is slightly insufficient at 27.8ng/mL, and I do supplement it as I was directed to by my physician.
High pth: High pth with normal serum calcium level occasionally occurs with parathyroid adenomas. In these cases one theory is that it may be that calcium is sucked from the bones in an effort to maintain normal serum calcium levels. Have you been checked for osteoporosis or had your urinary calcium level checked? An endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate you and answer your question. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vit D helps the: Intestines absorb calcium. However, the vitamin d must first be activated or by parathyroid hormone (pth). Once activated, vitamin d acts to greatly increase the amount of calcium that the intestines can absorb from food, sometimes by as much as two to four times. The body can either make its own vitamin d using a process that requires sunlight or obtain vitamin d directly from the diet. ...Read more
I have a pth of 75.8, calcium 0f 9.7, normal vitamin d. Bmd is -4.5. My endo doc wants me on forteo. Shouldn't she be checking my parathyroid first?
Good question: You have normocalcemic hyperparathyroidism (normal PTH in my lab is < 65). It would be prudent to work this up more to locate the possible adenoma. Your bone density is bad and should be treated while waiting for the workup to complete. The choice of treatment is between you and your endocrinologist but i wouldn't poo poo the parathyroid issue away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
