  1. Thank you! I’m having serious problems and I think you helped me figure this out! Don’t worry, I am under a doctors care.

  2. Thank you….a few years back (3) i was crazy for cheese. Within a year or so I began getting corns, 2-3 on each foot. Most along the area behind my toes…1 was near my heal. My blood ca was 10.5 now it is 9.7. I want to have a cardiac calcium scan so maybe in spring of '21. I find no mention of these little corns/pins that so annoy me
    Can they be the result of a 2-3:year cheese bing? Thank you for this clip…I suspect my score will not be 0 yikes!

  3. can i ask something, how about patient with kidney stone due to hypercalcemia secondary to hyperparathyroidism. im curious about the treatment that should give to the patient. should we treat hypercalcemia first or kidney stone or hyperparathyroidism. which one need to treat first?

  4. My calcium levels tend to be elevated from 10.4 to 10.6 at times. I have arthritis in my neck and back and I'm only 32. I also had a heat stroke last month according to my MRI along with vertigo. For like a year I would take vitamin D3 with K2 from time to time. Then I would also excercise out in the sun along with healthy eating. I would go to the emergency room for chest pain, headaches, dizziness, etc. They would check me out and see I'm normal just dehydrated yet I drink plenty of fluids.

  5. Are you sure about the bradycardia part cause in all other trusted sources they talk about tachycardia

  6. This is a fantastic video; thank you! One quick correction…I believe they are called "BISphosphonates", not "biphosphanates" 🙂

  7. Help…… I was recently told I have high calcium levels. But my parathyroid and thyroid look great. As well at my red and white blood cells. I read somewhere you can get elevated calcium from laying long periods of time and I have had Epstein Barr Virus for the last month I have been in bed. My drs. Do not know where my calcuim is coming from.

  8. I love this video! However, I am a bit confused by the illustration of PTH stimulating osteoclasts. I've learned in class that PTH stimulates osteoblasts –> RANK-ligand –> osteoclast formation. So PTH stimulates osteoclasts indirectly, via osteoblasts. If osteoblasts die because of the tumor, how will osteoclasts then be formed?
    Also, cortisol can cause osteoporosis due to osteoclast activity (again via osteoblast expression of RANKL). How can glucocorticoids then be a treatment? Will it not just cause more resorption of bone?

  9. Someone please tell me why my calcium levels were low on a blood test two weeks a go and this week it isn't ?
    Dr said it's common for levels to drop and go back to normal. I really don't get it!
    Im always having calcium 🤔
    I asked if she tested me for vitiamin d defiency and she said no because they know those tests are not realible ,well anyway she has prescribed me 12 weeks of vitamin d3 tablets

    Fingers crossed!

  10. Can I check if consuming too much milk kefir will overdose my calcium intake? I've recently have issue with my index finger, pain occurs when bended.. Kindly advise, thanks!
