Avatar n tn I then had to take 2 types of calcium supplements for about 2-3 months. Hypocalcemia is very treatable, but left untreated hypocalcemia can lead to serious repercussions like causing you to stop breathing and have convulsions. It mainly occurs due to a deficiency of parathyroid hormone, inefficient parathyroid hormone, or deficiency of Vitamin D. It may be seen alongside hypomagnesemia.
Avatar f tn Addison's Disease, hypothyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, pancreatitis, food allergies, and possible vasculitis. My doctors assume all of these problems are autoimmune. However, I have tested negative for antibodies to EVERYTHING (thyroid, adrenals, celiac, myasthenia...etc etc etc). I do have an enlarged Thymus. Any ideas how this could happen (autoimmunity without any antibodies)? Of course I worry there's something else going on here, but my doctors seem so convinced...
Avatar f tn I'm a 29 year old female recently diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, possible hypoparathyroidism, chronic pancreatitis and malabsorption, anemia (don't know if it's pernicious or iron-deficiency yet), and possible atrophic gastritis.

With all the pharmaceuticals in your body, I'm amazed that any clinician would attempt a diagnosis. Do yourself a favor and read some of the side effects of these drugs. Then realize that most are metabolize through a small set of CYP450 enzymes and your body can only make so much of the stuff, so your dosing is going to be way off.
