Two hundred and twenty-nine consecutive subjects, 202 women and 27 men, referred for evaluation of osteoporosis or low bone mineral density (BMD) had serum measurements of immunoreactive PTH (iPTH) and 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) performed. Fifteen individuals (mean age +/- SE, 75+/-2.4 yr) had depressed serum 25OHD (<15 pg/mL) and concomitantly elevated (>65 pg/mL) iPTH levels. After successful treatment of vitamin D insufficiency in all subjects, iPTH remained inappropriately high or frankly… CONTINUE READING
