In brief: Labs and Imaging

There are many lab studies as well as imaging evaluation of the organs involved.
Serum calcium, parathyroid hormone levels, calcitonin, cea, pituitary hormones, pancreatic hormones (including insulin, glucagon, etc), and a variety of adrenal hormones (epinephrine, norepinephrine, metanephrines, dopa, and their metabolites). A full evaluation requires extensive testing, including stimulation tests.

In brief: Genetic testing

The men1 gene mutation for the men 1 disorder and ret gene mutations for the men 2 disorders.
Having this information is very helpful in terms of being able to anticipate what may happen, thus allowing for early medical +/- surgical intervention.
