That's an endocrinologist problem

Hi Jimmy,

Unfortunately, I won't be able to help you out much. You have already had parathyroid problems and with a high calcium, that indicates parathyroid problems until proven otherwise- despite your normal PTH. So, this is a question that your endocrinologist will have to address and discuss whether your parathyroid problems have returned or not.


Actually a low vitamin d is associated with a NORMAL calcium level in the VAST majority of cases. Doctors will often only check a vitamin d level if the calcium is low, but that is a big mistake as the Vitamin D can be low for years and even decades before the calcium level becomes low.

But a HIGH calcium is ONLY related to vitamin d if one is Vitamin D toxic. Since you are NOT vitamin d toxic, then your Elevated Calcium Level is completely unrelated to vitamin d, so put that entirely out of your equation of confusion. When calcium is elevated, then it's nearly ALWAYS due to parathyroid dysfunction. So, follow up with your endocrinologist and if he doesn't have an answer, then try talking to your parathyroid surgeon and see if s/he can answer your questions.
