High Pth Level

My mom was recently diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism by her gp. She has an appt with an endo but not for another 6 weeks. Her calcium level was 11.4 and her PTH level was 202. I have been trying to glean some information off the net since her appt is so far off and it seems to me that 202 is excessively high. Anyone else out there with those kind of levels???

Re: High Pth Level

bsmom88: I had pth of 150 in January. My calcium levels were 12.2 and then went down to 11. In March and April, my levels were normal down with calcium 10 and pth 58. Then it was calcium 9.6 and pth 62. I have seen two surgeons. I see an endo next week. I go back to second surgeon in July for blood tests. Look for a post on- Please help! Any one with a parathyroid condition or symptoms! It is on page 2 now. You can find some info there.
Where in IA are you? I used to live in NE right across from Sioux City.

Re: High Pth Level

I got this from a parathyroid website. Calcium levels for normal should be between 14 and 65. Anything above 65 for pth are above normal. There is a lot of good info on this site.

Edited to say calcium should be between 8.5 and 10.4.

Re: High Pth Level

No, that's the PTH range - and the high end of the scale is age-dependant. If you're in your 20s, a PTH level of 60 isn't normal. Mine was flagged at 34 (I'm 47) as suspiciously high, and I was indeed hyperpara.

Calcium should be in the 9s somewhere.

Re: High Pth Level

Ooops, I am sorry. I made a mistake on the calcium levels in my previous post. I didn't post them but went on into the pth level. Talk about having a foggy brain. I just checked my last lab reports and from that calcium levels should be between 8.5 and 10.5. PTH between 10 and 65. On, there is a chart and for calcium it is 8.5 to 10.4. For pth, it is 10 to 65. I hope I got that right and sorry for any mistakes.

lenormandista: Did you have parathyroid surgery?
Is there any info out there on levels for age for pth? I am 54.

lenormandista: I see that you have had parathryoid surgery. I just read the post on parathryoid questions.
