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

Taking a conservative approach, it would be a good idea to speak to your primary doc first to see if this needs to be imaged further. A ultrasound is helpful. Also, tsh, t3/t4 blood work can be done to make sure the blood levels are normal. If needed, an evaluation by an ENT doc would be next step. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mri shows that I have a cystic nodule of left thyroid lobe and a perineural tarlov cyst in left s2 (racepinephrine) neural foramen. Are these related? What are they?

Repeat doctor's exam an ultrasound in a year. Generally of very low significance and found in over 50% of the population. ...Read more
