Appreciate your feedback on this. I am better on T3 but still not right. Still very fatigued if do anything. Pains in leg and feet reduced- GP wldnt prescribe T3 and testing for Rheumotoid arthtitis, lupus etc etc!

What was your actual parathyroid result ?


It was parathyroid hormone level 3.0 (1.6-6.9)


If that is the only pth result you should have regular checks, a high calcium is never normal and is nearly always caused by hyperparathyroidism, 99.5%. There are other causes which hopefully you have been checked for. If you are taking vitd supplements it would be wise to stop.


Hi Bantam Endo said to continue taking Vit D as was relatively low. Why wld this affect calcium- sorry for ignorance. He said they will monitor calcium via 3 monthly blood tests. No other tests for why calcium high- what do u suggest and no plans to monitor parathyroid according to Endo?!😱😜 how concerning are these results? Chasing GP about bone density scan!
