High blood calcium normal pth

Common Questions and Answers about High blood calcium normal pth


Avatar n tn what does it mean when I have high PTH and normal calcium, is this hyperparathyroid or something else ??? because my calcium is normal all the time. I'm 30 years old and I been suffering with the following symptoms (past 18 months), all of which started all the same time: Eye puffiness Loss of energy Muscle cramps High blood pressure Heart palpitations Decrease in sex drive summary lab report: Date: June 2006 TSH 2.0 microunits/ml 0.27 – 4.2 Free T4 1.
216703 tn?1277682777 About half of all people who have high levels of PTH and normal calcium in the blood need treatment to correct the abnormal levels. Further testing, such as bone mineral density testing or 24-hour urine calcium testing, may be needed to help make decisions about treatment. For more information, see the medical tests Bone Mineral Density or Calcium (Ca) in Urine. An overactive parathyroid gland is often caused by a noncancerous (benign) tumor of the parathyroid gland.

216703 tn?1277682777 This is likley vitamin D deficiency -- would test 25-OH-Vitmin D and talk to your doctor about replacement., This is not primary hyperparathyroid.
696393 tn?1254432807 I have had high PTH levels for over 2+years now, ranging from 323-787...normal calcium 9.3-9.4. Parathyroidectomy in 2002/removal of one parathyroid gland and benign tumor. Calcium levels returned to normal after being high for years. DX: breast cancer 5/2006...chemo/radiation/tamoxifen presently. PTH levels have tested extraordinarily high at various labs...my endocrinologist has run a RAPID/STAT PTH, and another regular PTH level, which will be known after 3/2/09.
Avatar n tn My wife was recently told she had high calcium in her blood at around 10.5 -11. Pth was checked and it came back as 7.5. The Dr is wanting to rule out parathyroid because of this low number on the pth. Dr Norman's site says the pth should be near zero if high calcium and parathyroid is acting normal. What does near zero mean? Is 7.5 near zero in this conversation? I read another post that quotes an email from Dr Norman who says no one walking around has a PTH level less than 12.
Avatar n tn Everything I have read about hypercalcemia talks about high calcium with high PTH or hypocalcemia with low calcium and low PTH. Anybody have any experience or knowledge about conditions that might arise in a generally healthy person with high calcium and low PTH? Thank you!
Avatar n tn I got sent to an endocrinologist and she did blood work for PTH but it was normal. But, my calcium tested normal that day, too. Anyone know anything about this? I feel tired and lousy a lot, so am trying to figure out if I need to be a little more pushy at the Dr's office. Also, one more question. I had a cervical spine neck MRI done recently for an unrelated neck problem. They did one set w/out contrast, and one set with a gadolinium contrast.
Avatar f tn The parathyroids' only job is regulating the level of calcium in the blood, and when the calcium is too low, the PTH rises and signals the bones to release calcium. As the calcium rises to normal levels the PTH is supposed to scale back. Right now, the PTH is erroneously signaling your bones to give up calcium even though your blood level is normal. The body gets rid of excess calcium easiest by urinating it off.
1470552 tn?1300609507 Have your parathyroid (PTH) blood levels tested. Mine was high normal, but still unusual for high blood calcium. Endo said that if your blood calcium is high, then your PTH should compensate by lowering. I had a sesstambi (sp?) scan done and it showed a tumor the size of a grain of rice, so doc wants to do another scan. That being said, Hashimoto's alone could just be the cause of my blood calcium.
Avatar m tn My doc said I have high levels of calcium in the blood and my parathyroids are functioning normally.. Currently take levothyroxine for my thyroid taken out due to pap Thyroid cancer..3 years ago Tg (thyroilogublin) 0.5 which is indectable my thyroid levels - Tsh 0.18 ( 0.4- 4.0 ) and Free T4 = 24.0 (9 -19) What signs and symptoms do you look out for with high calcium? Some fatigue, but otherwise ok..
Avatar f tn It looks like your second calcium test got into normal range- am I right? If your calcium is high 2 out of 3 lab samplings, A Manual of Laboratory Diagnostic Tests, 2nd edition (old book) by Frances Fischbach, says that establishes hypercalcemia.
Avatar n tn Had a yearly physical with routine blood work done and calcium came back elevated at 10.4 (8.6-10.2). Was sent for another calcium and PTH where calcium was 10.5 and PTH was normal at 20.2 (10-62). Was then told to recheck calcium in 3 months. Any concern that I should be checked for hyperparathyroidism? Or is there more likely another cause?
Avatar f tn Taking a calcium supplement will not help if you have elevated pth levels. Incidentally, I had pth levels in the high range of normal, so pth will not always be an indicator. I got a great deal of information from parathyroid.com, and looked into the credentials of Dr. Norman to verify that he is legit. He is. I would say that the doctors who told you that he is "extreme" are probably stumped by your symptoms and have no idea how to treat parathyroidism.
Avatar n tn I did check out the parathyroid.com site. I have very very low PTH and high calcium. My PTH is 5. If the parathyroid is low, and calcium is high, the thyroid is "shutting down" and doing what it should. That means I do not have parathyroidism. Reasons for high calcium when the parathyroid is very, very low? The scale on the parathyroidism web site does not even show a 5 PTH.
Avatar f tn 20% with hyperparathyroidism have normocalcemic hyperparathyroidism (high PTH and normal calcium - due to a tumour in the parathyroid gland). Normocalcemic hyperparathyroidism patients are the hardest to diagnose however the PTH levels are almost always above 105 pg/ml and typically you can see high ionized calcium level in the blood and also typically (but not always) high urine calcium level. The diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism is made by looking at clinical symptoms and labs.
Avatar n tn Please post what happens with your visit and the final outcome. I also have high to high normal calcium (10.2-11.4) with inappropriately normal PTH (20-30) for two years now. Also have GERD, hypothyroidism and multiple joints showing arthritis bilaterally. Had a negative sestamibi scan. Also have low Vitamin D (19.9-24). Doctors (GP, Endo and otolaryngologist) say it is not pHPT.
721523 tn?1331585402 The PTH level and the Ionized calcium level were both normal! Not shure how the PTH can be normal with the syrum calcium high, but ok. I guess she will check it again in 6 mo.
Avatar f tn Really worried since my blood calcium level was high last year 10.7 and this year 10.6 dr. Wants me to see a kidney specialist since my parathyroid levels were normal....please tell me this isn't serious and that there can be a simple reason? Any ideas? Anybody experience this?
Avatar n tn Low vitamin D is your body's way to help balance the high PTH and to keep the calcium normal (though it is high normal). Have they done a 24-hr urine calcium test? That should be done. Your osteoporosis is likely resulted from the hyperparathryoid. IF the hyperparathyroid can be corrected most likely the osteoporosis can be reversed. Go to parathyroid.com, which has information, including appropriate testing. If you are in the US maybe you should consider going to their clinic.
Avatar m tn The first time I only measured calcium but in second time I measured pth and calcium. By the way why has been phosphate high in my reports, isn't it suppose to be low in PHPT. I still get 5 second muscle twitching at arms and legs, maybe that is due to calcium because magnesium is still 2.00 mg/DL (1.80 - 2.
