My PTH (parathyroid hormone) is high,probably due to my CKD (chronic kidney disease). MY Vit. D3 was just at the bottom of the normal range a month ago.
It seems that my condition is Secondary Parathyroidism.

I see that you mentioned chronic kidney disease and a high parathyroid hormone and that you have secondary parathyroidism. Would you mind explaining a bit more about how this affects your osteopenia or why you titled your discussion osteopenia?

I titled it Osteopenia because that was the diagnosis. Also, I thought people should get a bone density scan and know what it means.
Thank you for elaborating a bit more @ujeeniack, I am not as familiar with the specifics of osteopenia.
If you don’t mind sharing, are you currently on any medications for osteopenia?
ONLY VITAMIN D3
Hi, could someone please help me with this question? I went through years of leg pain & pain in my humerus, shoulders…I went through 2 Bone Density tests and a third one 200 miles away that included my wrists- the doctor stated it was an ‘advanced more thorough test’. All three came back as “High Normal”. All this time I had undiagnosed Stage IV bone cancer brought on by undiagnosed thyroid cancer. Now they say my bones are very fragile, like Swiss cheese! The last bone density test was less than 6 months prior to that statement. Not ONE of my, 10 plus, oncologists can answer my question as to how this apparent contradiction can take place. No one can tell me why it took over 15 years to find the cancer when I was being followed by an endocrinologist & also kept breaking bones. They did state my 12 years of peripheral neuropathy was due to diabetes even though my A1C is still pre-diabetic- it wasn’t even that until 4 years ago. The obvious thing to do is find a new doctor. I’ve seen over 30 in 4 different towns long enough for them to test & have time to discover. Sorry to sound fatigued & a bit feed up. I am tired ,but not ready to throw in the towel. Thank-you for any insight. LillyAnne
@lilyanne Can understand you are fed up. Not necessary to apologize. About ready to go back to my spiritual sheets for a few and hopefully the next arising will feel more tolerable. Also appreciate your input. If we were quitter’s we would not be here.
