I'm 25, recently diagnosed with hypercalcemia, and then Primary Hyperparathyroidism--currently trying to find an experienced surgeon for that.
My PCP and endocrinologist also have suspected that I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, although I've lost 75lbs and thus "self-treated" the situation. When the endo tested my hormone levels, she said my testosterone was slightly elevated, but otherwise did not indicate PCOS. From what I understand, losing weight as I have tends to regulate the situation, meaning that could cause test results to come back "normal."
However, I have the majority of symptoms of those who are afflicted with it, including irregular periods, thinning hair, hair growth in places not natural to women (particularly sides of the face, neck, stomach), acne, and trouble losing and maintaining weight loss.
I was wondering if anyone had ever heard of a link between hyperparathyroidism and PCOS. They are of course both hormonal issues, and so I'm curious to see if there's any connection, and what it may indicate if there is such a connection.
Thanks much for any input.
