Will I Stop Gaining Weight Once My Parathyroid Is Removed
Having extreme hungers pangs that burn since having my gallbladder removed a year ago, and I end up overeating to stop the pain but im gaining weight?
? Ulcers ?: It is possible that the burning feeling that you are having is secondary to ulcers or excess acid in the stomach. When you eat it helps to neutralize the acid and your pain resolves temporarily. I would recommend seeing your doctor and consider having an upper endoscopy done to evaluate your stomach. ...Read more
Remaining parathyroi: It sounds like you had a parathyroid adenoma removed because of hyperparathyroidism. Typically this is a problem of one parathyroid. You have 3 others that will function fine after removal of the overactive one. Calcium levels which were high, should return to normal and stay normal. ...Read more
No: Removing your parathyroid gland(s) will not hurt your liver whatsoever. ...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 more
Usually: If the hypercalcemia worsens,,,the remove surgicallyGet a more detailed answer ›
I had a parathyroid adenoma removed and surgeon says another may need to be removed. Why wasn't it removed while he was in there?
Need it removed: There are 4 jparathyroid glands one of top and bottom of each thyroid lobe. If you were hypercalcemic and work up revealed an adenoma, removal will correct the problem. At the time of removal of the adenoma all remaining 3 glands had to be inspected to assure a second one was not left behind. If all were inspected and a 4th rmaining gland not identified it might be in the upper chest ...Read more

Right upper abd pain, right flank pain, kidney u/s normal, gb removed, cal 10.6, vit D 15, parathyroid 67, going on for 8 months, what could this be?
Calcium labs: Hi. What's the upper end of normal for PTH in your lab report? You could have mild primary hyperparathyroidism (need a 24-hour urine calcium to prove that). The low 25-hydroxyvitamin D could contribute to raising PTH. Not sure about your flank pain. Not all stones show up on u/s. Do 24-hour urine to see what stone risk looks like, and UA to see if red cells in urine. O/w, pain may be unrelated. ...Read more

How is a 0.7cm hyperechoic parathyroid adenoma treated? Too small to need removed? Could this be cause of palpable supraclavicular node? Mri this wed.
Depends on bloodtest: The concern with parathyroid adenomas is they often produce too much parathyroid hormone which regulates calcium blood levels. Loss of bone density and high calcium levels result. Some adenomas only cause a slight increase and can be safely monitored with blood tests while others require surgical removal. Highly unlikely to be cause of node. ...Read more

Talk with your doc: Talk with your doctor about your weight concerns. S/he may be just as concerned as you are! you need to review your current diet for what needs changing -- perhaps your doctor has a nutritionist s/he refers to, who can help. Eat whole foods, eliminating processed ones as much as possible; low sugar; lean proteins, low-starch veggies; fruits, etc. Gradually increase movement and exercise. ...Read more
Can the parathyroid gland have spasms?How can I stop the esophageal spasms?I have tried everything!now on omeprazole dr 40 mg! not working! even vomit
Not the parathyroid:
The parathyroid does not have spasms. It makes parathyroid hormone fairly continuously, and that controls your blood calcium. If ca is normal, no need to worry about parathyroid.
It sounds like you have rather bad esophageal reflux, and perhaps you should see a gastroenterologist. ...Read more
Parathyroid removed dec 13 , vit d now 22 & pth 90. What would cause the low d and high pth. I'm extremely fatigued with hip and knee pain.
Presumably not all your parathyroids were removed. Presumably you had hyperparathyroidism, and the bad one was removed (typically there are 4 parathyroids).
If your vit d is low, your parathyroid hormone will be high, trying to keep your blood Ca normal. vit D is low because you are not taking Vit D or getting sun exposure. Easy solution: take Vit D. OTC 2000 U/day. ...Read more
I have a TSH level of 22.38 and my T4 is 6.1 and Free T4 is 1.7. I had a portion of my thyroid removed last year during a parathyroid tumor removal. ?
That seems like a very high number and the pituitary gland must be seen by xray to make sure it is of normal size.
Has your parathyroid gland been checked recently?
Please let me know what happens. ...Read more
Chronic constipation. Polyp removed 2 years ago. Had parathyroid removal. Nausea after eating/drinking. Lower right ab pain while straining. Skin rash?
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
