Understanding PTH (Intact Parathyroid Hormone) in Ghaziabad


What is PTH (Intact Parathyroid Hormone) in Ghaziabad?

The PTH (Intact Parathyroid Hormone) test assesses the level of parathyroid hormone (PTH) that plays a crucial role in regulating calcium and phosphorus levels in the body. This test helps evaluate parathyroid gland function and primarily diagnose conditions related to calcium imbalance.

What does PTH (Intact Parathyroid Hormone) measure?

A PTH (Intact Parathyroid Hormone) test measures the levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) in the blood. PTH regulates calcium and phosphorus levels in the body. PTH levels are regulated by a feedback loop with calcium in the blood. Low calcium stimulates PTH release, and high calcium inhibits it. Problems like tumors or damage to the parathyroid glands can disrupt this balance, leading to abnormal PTH levels.

Monitoring of PTH levels is important in managing disorders affecting bone and mineral metabolism, and PTH (Intact Parathyroid Hormone) test helps assess the function of parathyroid glands and diagnose conditions related to calcium and phosphorus imbalance.
