Worrying About My Hyperparathyroidism

Hi @dave9136,

As far as I know, the doctor just recommended the additional Vit D simply because my level kept measuring 17 (at that time I was only taking one dose of Vit D per day). I'm not sure how (or if) the D level affects the PTH nor the calcium levels.

Do you have more information about this correlation?

Hi Theresa,

Below are links a few articles that discuss the association between low vitamin D, calcium, and hyperparathyroidism:
https://www.advancedparathyroid.com/hyperparathyrodisim/symptoms-of-hyperparathyroidism/vitamin-d/
https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hyperparathyroidism/symptoms-causes/syc-20356194 https://www.hyperparathyroidmd.com/hyperparathyroidism-vitamin-d/

There are others on the web as well.
