Calcium, Vitamin D and Parathyroid

Calcium, vitamin D and the parathyroid hormones worked together to ensure optimal bone health. Conditions relating to calcium and parathyroid hormones not only lead to poor bone health and osteoporosis, but also to other complications such as kidney problems.

Many studies have reported associations between low vitamin D levels and poor health outcomes. Vitamin D deficiency can result in osteomalacia, a condition marked by inadequate mineralization of bones. This can give rise to body aches, muscle weakness and bone fragility.

Proper work up and treatment of calcium, vitamin D and parathyroid hormones problems are important in preventing the complications associated with dysregulation of these electrolytes and hormones.
