Hi Laurie,

I would suggest that you read the ENTIRE website of thoroughly and completely. It should take you an hour or more to fully understand the problems of hyperparathyroidism.

The main point being that hyperparathyroidism is not improved by reducing calcium in the diet. Hyperparathyroidism is caused by parathyroid tumors that cause your calcium metabolism to 'break'. The remedy for this is to remove the tumors- not to reduce dietary calcium and 'watch it' as your bones get thinner and thinner.

The vitamin d DID NOT cause your problem. Only Overdose on Vitamin D causes high calcium levels and 50,000 IU's per week has NEVER caused an overdose in anyone ever!

So, you have a SERIOUS problem that needs to be addressed by a competent Parathyroid Specialist. You should also know that your bones getting worse may be a RESULT of the Fosamax. Fosamax causes your bones to become harder and it kills off the cells that create healthy new bone so that your bones cells 'turn over' less. The result of this is to make harder bone that looks denser, but it more fragile.

Fosamax is an awful drug that causes a LOT of problems when used as long as you've used it. See my page on Osteoporosis Drugs to see why they are so bad. Please see a Parathyroid Specialist, not 'just' an endocrinologist, and get to the bottom of your problems...
