High normal calcium 10.5 (8.4-10.5)

Low Vitamin D - 28

Low normal PTH 14.3

From everything I've read the Calcium should be low with low Vit D levels. The PTH is appropriate for the High Calcium. However, from what I've researched a low Vit D and low PTH doesn't match either.

I had a parathryoidectomy 1.5 yrs ago (single gland). Felt good for about 3 months, but started feeling bad again after that.

Symptoms are joint pain, frequent urination, hypertension, acid reflux, and IBS.

Recent bone scan showed improvement in bone density since parathyroidectomy in wrist and parts of the hip. The femoral neck actually showed a little loss.

One other thing, Alkaline Phosphatase has been low on several occasions.

Thx!

Are you on any hormone replacements because of your parathyroidectomy?

Hi, thx for the reply. No I'm not taking any hormones. Just 1000IU of Vitamin D per the endo's advice. However, I read that Vit D is really a type of hormone, so that might be a yes instead of a no. Thx again!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These tests are in normal reference range.
Just continue vitamin D. You need just reassurance and counselling.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
