Fri, Jan 17 3:49pm · Elevated parathyroid hormone (PTH) in Diabetes/Endocrine System

my calcium was 11.3 and pth was 79 in oct but now it was calcium 10 and pth 82…he did order some scan that will be done in couple of weeks, not sure what it is but do know they will inject soemthing in morning and then have to go back for a scan in the afternoon, thank yu for the links i will read them, I am a week short of my 68th birthday and have spent the last 3 years feeling terrible and fighting a up and down blood pressure, tried lots of meds that made things worse…not a fun couple of years for sure

I am getting frustrated with my doctor, have had slighly high calcium levels for years off and on, finally checked pth and it is high and has been for awhile, looked at one other time it was checked back in 2005, yep 2005 and it was high then but ignored. Doctor now checked bone density in knees and says it good but D3 is low so now i will be taking 50000 units once a week and 2000 units once a day for 3 months. My calcium is 10 right now, down from 11.3 so he says that is normal so no problem. Yep I feel awful and have been having erratic high blood pressure that doesn't respond to meds for very long….oh when he did a scan in his office like ones they do on pg ladies it showed thyroid or parathyroid nodules….
