Hi Iam concerned about elevated Calcium, and PTH. But mostly my new diagnoses of osteoporosis in my hips -2.5
Calcium 10.4 recently average around 9.9 with consistently high Albumin around 5.2-5.5
Albumin 5.2 recent
PTH 72 ( 14-64 range)
Recently diagnosed with osteoporosis. 8 years ago it was perfect. I exercise lift weights and run 3 x week 2-3-5 miles. I am small framed 5'2 114 pounds and post menopausal just turned 58.
Should I be concerned about a adenoma of the parathyroid gland. Do you think I should see and endocrinolgist? S

Hi, I had a blood test, and for years, my calcium has been high for years. At first, I was told it is really nom problem...it was as high as 10.7...now, it is 10.3. My blood test also says I have Normal Parathyroid, Hypoparathyroidism, blood test says LOW, Hyperparathyroidism, primary, high, Secondary, normal to low, Tertiary, high, Non-Parathyroid Hypercalcemia, High....So, should I be concerned?

I have been diagnosed with high calcium levels which my doctor feels is caused by hypoparathyroidism. I have no side affects at this time. After reading several articles on the internet, I am confused about treatment. Some say surgery is only cure, others are being treated with calcium and D3. My pth was 94 and calium is 10.9 I need more information on this condition to clarify what is happening to me.
