RCT: Vitamin D safe, helps with bone health in primary hyperparathyroidism

Posted on: February 13, 2014   by  Kate Saley


We’ve heard a lot about vitamin D’s role in primary hyperparathyroidism lately.

Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is a disorder affecting the parathyroid glands caused by a benign tumor. It can cause some health issues including decreased vitamin D status, dangerously high calcium levels, and bone disorders.

Since PHPT can cause high calcium levels, doctors are often hesitant to prescribe vitamin D because they’re worried it might tip the calcium balance even higher.

    Welcome back, Kate! Very nice post.

    I wish there were a way to get this info “out there” so to speak, with respect to physicians treating patients with PHPT.

    It’s a busy world, and I’m certain that the results of this RCT might just get missed by physicians….

    Be well,
