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.

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

Ask your doctor: This is a very important question to ask your doctor, because different docs have slightly different ideas on this. Ideally, thyroid hormone should be taken on an empty stomach - at least 2 hours after and 1 hour before eating, and at least 1-2 hours away from any source of iron or calcium.
