Routine blood test revealed an elevated calcium level. Second blood test to verify & test PTH revealed calcium of 10.5 (norm 8.6-10.2) & PTH of 12 (norm 10-65). Contraindicitive of parathyroid? I have an appointement next month with Endocrinologist but I keep worrying about what's up? I feel fine. A little tired but have been traveling a lot & don't sleep well in hotels so not really unusual. Any one else have the same? What did Dr. say?
There is a thyroid forum here and I think you should check it out because it sounds like your having thyroid problems.
I've heard that calcium levels can be high if your hypothroid.
I wish I could help you more. The thyroid forum should be able to answer your questions. Take care. Remar
