    I am being tested for hyperparathyroidism this week. My alkaline phosphatase is a bit raised, has been for years, blood calcium raised but still high normal but it fluctuates as well as very low vitamin D. I'm having a procedure on Wednesday to remove two kidney stones that have remained in my kidney since last March and have become problematic as far as flank pain causing me to flare.

    Only time will tell whether I have this or not. I suspect not but I have a 50% of being right or wrong.:D

    While there are conditions where you can only treat the symptoms, untreated hyperparathyroidism is dangerous and symptoms may not necessarily correlate with the calcium levels. if I understand correctly, lowering calcium and and PHT through the ways you suggested, doesn't cure the cause which is an adenoma in the parathyroid gland(s).

    The above site was recommended by Aidan Walsh.. It seems to say the same thing I have read other sites, but somtimes Dr. Google can be misleading and I am not a medical professional.

    There is now a neurologist in Brazil reversing illnesses his name is Dr. Coimbra he is calling M.S., auto immune conditions including cfs fibro a 'Partial Vitamin D deficiency' he uses high doses of Vitamin D3 anyone over 10,000 i.u. daily must stop all dairy foods calcium intoxication it also has to do with the Parathormone Parathyroid, also he says

    get B2, B12, Omega 3 Fish Oils other wise D3 will not work without the Omega 3 also magnesium, 2.5 litres daily of water to wash out access calcium eat foods like fish chicken some meats get your calcium from vegs/fruits ones you can tolerate Kale a wise choice Brocoli...Avoid dairy over 10,000 i.u. D3 a must to be followed by your physician if you

    are on thyroid meds you must be stabilized first, there have not been any toxicities seen in his research since he commenced arourd 2002 first he gave 10,000 i.u. to Parkinsons & Alzheimers with immediate improvements... I take now 50,000 i.u. daily no dairy whatsoever it will not work overnight it takes months/years to recover he says as much

    as 50% of Brazil are D deficient...It has over 4500 mecanisms gene expressions, anti viral, anti bacterial, anti fungal like a key in 4500 doors the master key fits all doors...M.S. patients have now reversed lesions some after 2 years no longer have to see this neurologist all tests return to normal he says not 'cure' it's a lifetime cure treatment you

    must be on for life he brings up the vitamin D levels high, he watches Calcium/Parathormone levels more than the D levels :) I will try post some of his youtube videos there is one girl with M.S. totally well she is on a maintenance dose now she forgets she had M.S. one of his former patients CFS is now under him as a fully trained Doctor when she

    recovered she decided to become a Doctor & did her internship under Dr. Coimbra...Rule out Parathyroid tumors as well also if you start protocol do these bloods prior vitamin D, Parathormone plus Calcium blood if possible 24 hour Calcium urine collection, hormones if you want as well plus any Bone Scans would be a marker...Buy natural

    vitamin D3 gel form or up to you D3 oil drops I prefer gel caps easier to take make sure take with meals...Multi vitamins natural are good if you can tolerate B complex vitamins/minerals that's fine eat healthy as much as possible I drink water only, hot water boiled while eating I eat no sugar I no longer eat any gluten free b.s. foods

    eliminated I make my own breads from coconut flour/oils etc healthier... There are now 2 Facebook links one is in Italian other is in Portugese Brazil language the videos are in Portugese with English subtitles...On my Facebook page I have posted numerous numerous links to Brazil as well videos :) I will try post some links videos as soon as I can... blesses get well soon...end of this post: :)

    blood test on Calcium is a blood test your Doctor would know to run plus you could ask for urine calcium as well it may be sample or 24 hour collection plus parathormone vitamin d3 levels...They would know what are to be done just make sure Dairy completely eliminated it is in lots of foods so avoid but 3 litres daily of water flushes our excess Calcium do not eat dairy your kydneys could fail/dyalisis then...Serious stuff 'no Calcium' even Tums or pill forms Oscal etc stay off them...Get calcium via vegs/fruits drink daily water

    Dr. Google actually has taken patients away from CFS/Fibro diagnosis some now diagnosed with Hypopituitarism as a result of injuries, Sports traumas, auto accidents, whiplashes etc etc which is missed with the ACTH tests but there is another specific test that rules it in/out...Dr. Google 'saves lives' not everyone has CFS/Fibro on these forms afterall there is not one test that says yes you have this illness refered to as 'fatigue' I have an abnormality on my MRI on the pituatary gland they say lesion others say tumor of 4cm one Doctor said I could have be born with it as well but injuries could have been possible...Maybe :)'s Dr. Google will give me a proper diagnosis...LOL :)'s
