Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Well, PTH stands for Parathyroid hormone. It is a protein hormone which is released by the parathyroid gland.

PTH helps to regulate calcium levels in the blood.

For a healthy person- Normal values are 10 to 55 pg/mL.

You have a high value of 81 this could occur due to-

- Increased phosphorus levels, like chronic kidney disease.

-Swelling or tumors in the parathyroid glands


High PTH levels also point to vitamin D disorders.

Please see your doctor, to find the right cause and you would be advised management accordingly.
