Is High Calcium Related to Thyroid Disease?

By    |   Friday, 07 Jun 2013 09:39 AM

Question: I have high calcium levels and my doctor says I have two nodules, near my trachea, and probably parathyroid disease. Should I have them removed, and what can I do to lower my calcium levels?

Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
 
Parathyroid disease that causes elevated calcium levels can become hazardous if left unmanaged.
 
Usually parathyroid adenomas are removed surgically, and microscopic minimally invasive scope surgery for this is becoming the norm.
 
It used to be that you had to have a neck exploration before such a procedure, but those days are gone.
