Any natural options for overactive parathyroid
There is little information on the subject and about all I can find is have surgery to remove one or more of the glands. The thing is that does not address the underlying issue that caused it and frequently does nothing to improve the situation. I hope someone on here has some other information.

Re: Any natural options for overactive parathyroid
Yes and I have been supplementing with vitamin d. I have read that can help a lot with some people. So far mixed results. The problem is it takes an order from the doc to get a test and so no idea where I am between tests to adjust the dosage if necessary. Wish there was a home test like for glucose.

Taking vitamin d can make your calcium go higher, which will make your symptoms worse. Possibly cause a stroke!!!! Please get your lab work done to check your calcium levels and PTH levels before supplementing with vitamin d .. If you have an adenoma on your parathyroid gland , you need to have it removed.

Re: Any natural options for overactive parathyroid
You need to have it removed. It can cause all sorts of damage to your body. My husband flew to Tampa to have one taken out (there is a clinic there that specializes in parathyroid removal) and it took 45 minutes and we flew home the next day. His memory fogginess, grumpiness, aches and pains all disappeared within a week. Nothing to mess around with. Good luck!

Oops..forgot to give you the link to the clinic. They are very easy to work with and will answer any questions you have. They can refer you to someone closer, also. We live in a small town and the surgeon had only done two of these surgeries so we opted to go to Tampa since is was fairly close.

Re: Any natural options for overactive parathyroid
I would really like to find alternatives to surgery please. I have read several recent endocrine studies where people with hyperparathyroid were given vitamin d therapy and no ones calcium went up. My calcium level did not go up even when my vitamin d level was above the high normal range. I know that has been a concern in the past but from what I have read it is not the case.

the thing is , if your parathyroid hormone levels are raised just because of vit d deficiency then they will go down if you supplement ( a lot of vit d supplements come with calcium )but if it's because of primary over activity of the parathyroid gland then you need to know whast your calcium is

calcium is really important and can cause lots of vague niggly symptoms ( like the other poster mentioned ) if it's too high

you can only seriously consider your options if you know exactly what's going on

and if you know the primary problem is your parathyroid glands then surgery may well be the best on offer
i don't know of any alternatives if that is the problem

have you seen a medical herbalist? might be worth a chat

When you've an overactive parathyroid gland, your body suppresses it's vitamin D level as a self-protective measure, because Vit D helps the gut wall to absorb more calcium from food - hence increasing (dangerously) the level of calcium in the blood even further.

Re: Any natural options for overactive parathyroid
My husband tried a naturopath for two years before his calcium became extremely elevated. His MD said that your calcium should never be high or it can ruin a lot of your bodily functions. He tried everything and is normally a very healthy person, who eats primarily local grown/raised organic meats and vegetables. I am not sure in the case of your parathyroid that you can reverse the problem once it has started.
