We evaluated short-term changes in serum amino-terminal procollagen propeptide (P1NP) and cross-linked C-terminal telopeptide (βCTX) of type I collagen after parathyroidectomy (PTX) in 41 postmenopausal women with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, intact PTH, calcium, phosphate, albumin, creatinine, P1NP, and βCTX were measured before and 2 days after PTX. Their P1NP and βCTX levels were compared with those measured in 41 normally menstruating and 30… CONTINUE READING
