2 doctors agree
In brief: Yes
This would generally be in the case of severe or very low vitamin d over a period of time.
In such a case, the calcium would drop and increase the work of the parathyroid gland.

In brief: Yes
Secondary hyperparathyroidism can also be caused by low calcium and/or low magnesium intake, even with adequate intake, poor digestion (poor pancreas function, certain liver problems, etc.
) or poor nutrient absorption (celiac disease, intestinal removal or bypass, etc.) can lead to deficiency.
