What Happens If All Parathyroid Glands Are Removed
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
Low calcium: Parathyroid hormone regulates calcium concentration in the blood. When you have no parathyroid hormone, your calcium level will drop and your phosphorus level will rise. The treatment is to give back calcium and if you indeed have no parathyroid left, you will also need vitamin d- calcitriol. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Three more remaining: There are four parathyroid glands situated in the neck, behind the thyroid gland -- two on left and two on right, usually a few centimeters apart. These glands make parathyroid hormone (PTH) that control calcium and bone metabolism. Usually only 0.5 to 1 parathyroid is sufficient to make enough pth. If 3 to 3.5 glands are damaged or removed, the body can still maintain PTH and calcium control. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Enlarged or absent.: Parathyroid glands (one or more) may enlarge and cause a high blood calcium and lead to kidney stones and bone loss. If high enough symptoms may occur such as mental changes, constipation, frequent urination and weakness. In kidney failure parathyroid glands enlarge but often the blood calcium is low. Absence of parathyroid glands most often is due to thyroid surgery. The blood calcium is low. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Parathyroid Glands: The parathyroid glands are 4 small groups of tissue that sit behind the thyroid gland. They make parathyroid hormone or PTH which is involved in calcium metabolism. Too much PTH causes the calcium level in the blood to go up. An overactive parathyroid gland is often diagnosed when a routine blood test shows a high calcium level. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Regulates calcium.: They make parathyroid hormone (PTH), which regulates the body's calcium and phosphate levels. These levels are important for normal nerve and muscle function. PTH tells bone to break down and release calcium into the blood. In the gut, it converts vitamin D to its active form which absorbs more calcium. It also tells kidneys to allow less calcium and phosphate to leave the body through urine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
