Worrying About My Hyperparathyroidism

HI Theresa.. Yes, I'm seeing an endocrinologist. She was the Dr. who recommended I start taking the vitamin D. No, I haven't had a nuclear scan yet to look for nodules. Is the nuclear scan the same as the sestamibi scan? I heard that those scans are not always accurate. I did have an ultrasound during an endo visit about 5 months ago and it didn't show any nodules.

Hi @dave9136,

I am glad to hear that you are seeing an endocrinologist, they are the doctors who can best deal with this problem. I'm not completely sure if the sestamibi scan is the same as the nuclear scan, but after reading about the sestamibi scan it sounds like the same type of test. I am taking 2,000 of the Vit D twice a day, morning and night. That brought up my Vit D level to 30, would like to get it a bit higher.

Have you had any broken bones or been tested for osteoporosis?
