The purpose of this site is to collect lab research by medical doctors about herbs that are proven to treat illnesses and counter the false attacks on herbs by the medical industry and false claims by alternative medicine. I let the science tell the facts.

Parathyroid

Part of the Endrocin Syustem, small endocrine glands in the neck of humans that produce parathyroid hormone. Humans usually have four parathyroid glands, variably located on the back of the thyroid gland, although considerable variation exists and produce parathyroid hormone and calcitonin (one of the hormones made by the thyroid gland) have key roles in regulating the amount of calcium in the blood and within the bones. http://herbdiscovery.com/category/body/endrocrine-system.htm

  1. Parathyroid hormone and calcitonin (one of the hormones made by the thyroid gland) have key roles in regulating the amount of calcium in the blood and within the bones.
  2. Hyperparathyroidism and hypoparathyroidism, characterised by alterations in the blood calcium levels and bone metabolism, are states of surplus or insufficient parathyroid function.
  • Parathyroid hormone (PTH, parathormone) is a small protein that takes part in the control of calcium and phosphate homeostasis, as well as bone physiology. Parathyroid hormone effects calcium.
  • Calcium. PTH increases blood calcium levels...activates vitamin D, and promotes calcium conservation (reabsorption) by the kidneys.
  • Phosphate. PTH is the major regulator of serum phosphate concentrations via actions on the kidney. It is an inhibitor of proximal tubular reabsorption of phosphorus. Through activation of vitamin D the absorption of Phosphate is increased.Wickepedia

1. Symptoms

Overactive (hyperparathyroidism) too much PTH produces too much calcium.
Underactive (hypoparathyroidism) too little PTH not enough calcium.

Loss of energy. Chronic fatigue.
Just don't feel well not normal.
Feel old. Lose in interest in things you used to.
Can't concentrate, Brain Fog.

Development of MGUS and abnormal blood protein levels.
Most people with hyperparathyroidism will have 5 - 6 of these symptoms. Some will have lots of them. A few people will say they don't have any... http://www.parathyroid.com/parathyroid-symptoms.htm
