Do I have hyperparathyroidism? admin Posted on Posted in Laboratory Radiology, Medical Questions 3 Comments Tagged with hyperparathyroidism Do I have hyperparathyroidism? Thankyou I’m a female 38 from Australia. Calcium 2.6 Vitimin d 36 Pth 11.0
this is not hyperparathyroidism. as the pth levels are within normal range. even vitamin d level is normal.
calcium levels are grossly diminished. this condition is called HYPOCALCEMIA. this may lead to weak bones.
no,these reports do not indicate hyper or hypoparathyroidism. infact only the calcium levels in blood are lowered. just by taking calcium supplements, you should be fine.
IN HYPERPARATHYROIDISM THE PTH LEVELS ARE INCREASED TO MORE THAN 80. THE REASON FOR SUCH LOW LEVELS OF CALCIUM APART FROM NORMAL VIT D AND PTH LEVELS NEEDS TO BE FOUND OUT BY DOING FURTHER INVESTIGATIONS. START ON CALCIUM TABLETS IMMEDIATELY
