    Secondary hyperparathyroidism (high-turnover bone disease, or HTBD) is manifested by elevated parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels. Control of HTBD may be achieved by maintaining low serum phosphorous levels and administering vitamin D therapy, although some patients continue to exhibit high PTH...

    Background. Disturbed mineral metabolism is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, however, its influence on physical symptoms is less clear. We explored the effects of disordered plasma calcium, phosphorus, calcium-phosphorus (Ca × P) product and intact parathyroid hormone...

    Background Treatment with cinacalcet improves the control of secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) and the achievement of calcium and phosphorus targets. Most data come from subjects receiving cinacalcet after several years of dialysis treatment. We therefore compared the efficacy of treatment...

    Background. Fluctuating parathyroid hormone values (PTH) are common in patients undergoing haemodialysis. Widely varying PTH results in an 82-year-old haemodialysis (HD) patient could not be explained. When PTH in the same blood sample was no longer detectable 24 h after blood draw, it was...

    An acute rise or decrease in parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion was found in 30 patients, dialyzed with, respectively, low (5 mg/100 ml) or high (7.5 mg/100 ml) calcium concentration. The percentage changes were, respectively, +35% and -47% when a N-terminal antiserum measuring predominantly...
