After lots of research, my wife and I believe that she has hyperparathyroidism... we have read Dr. Norman's website parathyroid.com and after learning about it, we asked her endocrinologist to measure her PTH and calcium levels... he said he would first measure her calcium and if it is elevated, then he would measure her PTH... but he really did not think that was the problem.
Her calcium came back at 9.4, which I believe is in the "normal" range, but according to Dr. Norman's website, it is possible to have those measurements and still have hyperparathyroidism. Has anyone had hyperparathyroidism, but low calcium levels? She has had 2 kidney stones, which Dr. Norman suggests could be correlated to the fact that the blood calcium levels are normal, since the kidneys are working overtime... does that make sense? Can anyone relate to this situation?
