Parathyroid Education on Video
High blood calcium, hyperparathyroidism, parathyroid gland problems, low vitamin D, and parathyroid surgery! Everything you want to know about parathyroid disease on VIDEO.
Featured Flicks are 3-10 minute videos with detailed information on many parathyroid subjects. Enjoy!
Shows how 1,445 endocrinologists did workups on more than 10,000 patients with high calcium levels, why intermittent normal calcium levels are ok, and very informative data on negative sestamibi scans and negative ultrasounds.
Dr. Norman explains sestamibi scans and why they are often negative. Sestamibi scans are usually wrong and far too much emphasis is placed on sestamibi scans!
Learn about parathyroid glands and what happens when they become tumors and which symptoms are because you have too much calcium in your blood.
During parathyroid surgery, Drs. Norman and Politz us the probe to measure the parathyroid hormone NOT to localize the tumor. The probe measures the amount of parathyroid homone being produced by the parathyroid glands. The parathyroid tumor has higher measurements than a normal parathyroid gland.
Learn how Calcium is affected by parathyroid glands and how parathyroid glands are the control system for the levels of calcium in your body.
Dr. Politz from the Norman Parathyroid Center presents a discussion on NIH criteria for diagnosing hyperparathyroidism to the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.
Shows how 1,445 endocrinologists did workups on more than 10,000 patients with high calcium levels and the trends of endocrinologists around the world in diagnosing primary hyperparathyroidism. Also discussed is how FHH cannot be distinguished from PHPT with a 24 hr urine test.
