Introduction to Parathyroid Hormone PTH Test

Parathyroid Hormone is a hormone released by Parathyroid Glands to control blood calcium, phosphorus, and Vitamin D levels. Having too much or too little Parathyroid Hormone can lead to complications related to abnormal calcium levels. Nestled behind the thyroid gland, the Parathyroid Gland is a four-pea-sized gland that releases Parathyroid Hormones (PTH). But when, for any reason, the gland releases either too low or too high PTH Hormones, both can lead to serious health complications. Doctors often suggest a PTH Test to individuals exhibiting symptoms of too little or too high calcium in the blood or who have a Parathyroid Disorder or Chronic Kidney Disease. Many health conditions can lead to abnormal PTH levels; therefore, if suggested, it is essential to get tested to determine the cause of the abnormality and take charge as soon as possible.

Purpose of the PTH Test:

  • It is often suggested that PTH or Parathyroid Hormone be measured in the blood.
  • It helps find if Parathyroid disorders cause abnormal calcium levels in the blood.
  • The test also aids in finding the cause of abnormally low phosphate levels.
  • It is suggested by doctors that chronic kidney disease be monitored.
  • It checks whether treatment for a known Parathyroid disorder is working or if adjustments in the dosage are needed.
  • The PTH levels are also suggested to be measured during surgery if you have overactive Parathyroid glands to confirm that the overactive tissues have been successfully removed.

PTH levels testing serves many purposes. Therefore, as suggested, the test should be done as soon as possible so that complications can be avoided and health can be managed effectively.

Symptoms That May Prompt The Need For A PTH Test:

Your doctor may suggest a Parathyroid Test when you exhibit symptoms of too much or too little calcium in the blood.

Symptoms of too much calcium are:

  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Digestive discomfort
  • Abdominal pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Increased thirst
  • Urinating more than usual
  • Bone, joint & muscle weakness and aches
  • Unexplained fatigue

Symptoms of too little calcium are:

  • Dry skin
  • Coarse hair
  • Weak nails
  • Muscle cramps, spasms, or stiffness
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Tingling in the lips, tongue, fingers & feet
  • When calcium is extremely low, it can even cause seizures

Whether you have these symptoms, risk factors, or an existing CKD, getting yourself tested as soon as possible is essential to confirm the cause and take timely charge of the condition. So, book your PTH Lab Test or Parathyroid Lab Test with us today.

Normal PTH Levels:

While the normal Parathyroid levels can vary from lab to lab, the normal range of the general PTH Level is 15 to 65 pg/mL. After considering the test results and other factors, your doctor may interpret the test results and suggest the need for further examination (if any).

What do the results interpret?

Certain medical conditions contribute to abnormal PTH levels in the blood. However, your doctor may consider the PTH Test result, age, medical history, symptoms (if any), risk factors, and other factors to interpret the test results and suggest measures accordingly. So, what does the test result mean?

High PTH Levels indicate:

Elevated PTH levels usually indicate hyperparathyroidism, which is further classified into two categories:

Primary Hyperparathyroidism - When PTH Levels are higher than normal with high blood calcium levels, which occurs due to:

  • Benign tumor
  • Hyperplasia
  • Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia
  • Parathyroid Cancer

Secondary Hyperparathyroidism - When PTH Levels are high but calcium levels are low and is caused due to:

  • Vitamin D Deficiency
  • Not getting enough Calcium
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Kidney Failure

Low PTH Levels Indicate:

If the PTH levels are low along with low blood calcium levels, it indicates Hypoparathyroidism, caused due to:

  • Damage to parathyroid glands
  • Certain autoimmune disorders
  • Vitamin D toxicity
  • Too much calcium
  • Certain genetic disorders
  • Some serious illness

Whether the levels are too high or too low, both can cause health concerns. Therefore, getting tested as soon as possible is essential to determine the underlying cause and take appropriate care. Your doctor may check your PTH and calcium levels. If abnormalities are found, they may suggest additional blood tests to determine the underlying condition and recommend appropriate measures accordingly.

Some Important Tips To Lower PTH Levels Naturally:

  • First and foremost, undergo the test to determine the cause of elevated PTH levels.
  • Take medication as advised by your healthcare provider.
  • Keep a tab on your calcium and vitamin D intake.
  • Drink enough water to produce clear urine and minimize the risk of certain kidney disorders.
  • Include some sort of physical or strength training in your routine.
  • Do not smoke.
  • Make some healthy lifestyle changes for a healthy you.
  • Avoid certain medicines that can raise calcium levels (However, it should be done only if advised by your healthcare provider)

Before altering your diet, lifestyle, or medication, it is essential to confront your doctor so that they can better guide you according to your health requirements. Because the condition affects everyone differently, and the impact of any change may also affect them differently, it is essential to consult your healthcare provider to be on the safer side.

Preparations Required For A PTH Blood Test:

Since it is like another blood test, it calls for no special preparations. However, general guidelines that one should follow are:

  • While fasting is not required, you should follow any dietary restrictions (if any) given by your healthcare provider, depending on your individual condition.
  • If you are taking any medicines, whether prescribed or supplements, inform your doctor before the test and follow their instructions.
  • Avoid smoking or drinking for a certain period before the test to avoid inaccuracies in the test results.
  • Do not stress or panic, and if you have any known medical condition or pregnancy, inform your doctor before the test.

Following all the instructions is essential to ensure the test results are accurate. If you have any related doubts, discuss it with your doctor for better clarification.

Procedure Of A PTH Blood Test:

  • A phlebotomist will tie a band around your arm to make the vein visible and clean the site using a disinfectant.
  • After cleaning the site, a sterile needle will be inserted into the vein to draw the blood, causing a little sting-like pain or bruise at the punctured site.
  • Once the blood is collected as required, the needle will be removed safely, and the punctured site will be sealed using a bandage to prevent bleeding or risk of infections.
  • The collected blood will then be transferred to a vial, sealed, labeled, and sent to the laboratory for testing.

The pain or discomfort during the blood drawing process will fade away in a few days, but if the symptoms last longer than usual, seek immediate medical assistance.
