3 doctors weighed in:

Pth blood level was elevated. Ekg showing short qt interval. Does this mean my calcium blood level is too high?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Maybe

Hypercalcemia can cause a short qt interval but the best way to answer the question is to measure blood calcium.
High PTH could also be a consequence of vitamin d defieciency and kidney failure.
