Calcium PTH, Thyroid: Confirmed hypothyroidism s a clear message that the TSH is working hard to increase thyroid hormone but without success.

Second opinion: You do not say what the Ca level was. Your PTH is normal. If your doctor finds you untrustworthy then perhaps you have done something to precipitate their suspicion, in which case finding another doctor and being re-evaluated is the best option. Good luck. ...Read more
