What is Pseudo hypo para thyroidism?
Pseudo hypo para thyroidism is a condition in which there is resistance to the parathyroid hormone. People suffering from this condition have a very low serum calcium and high phosphate in the blood, but on the other hand the parathyroid hormone level (PTH) is high.
What are the symptoms of Pseudo hypo para thyroidism?
In pseudo hypo para thyroidism calcium levels are low therefore symptoms includes:
-Tetany (muscles twitching and spasm)
What is the function of the parathyroid hormone?
Parathyroid hormone balances the blood calcium levels in the body.
When the blood calcium level is too low, PTH is released to bring the calcium level back to the normal. When the calcium level is raised, normal parathyroids will stop releasing PTH.
Proper calcium balance in the body is very important for normal functioning of the heart, nervous system, kidneys, bones and muscles.
Causes of pseudo hypo para thyroidism?
Pseudo hypo para thyroidism is caused by mutation in the genes (changes in the genes). When the functioning of the genes is not proper than the body is unable to respond to parathyroid hormone, which increases the level of phosphorous in the blood and decreases the level of calcium. This mutation in this gene is often inherited from the parents.
Diagnosis of pseudo hypo para thyroidism?
Pseudo hypo para thyroidism can be diagnosed by blood or urine tests. These tests measure the level of calcium, phosphorous, and parathyroid hormone in the blood or urine.
If the levels of parathyroid hormone and phosphorous are high and the levels of calcium is low then this indicates the possibility of pseudo hypo para thyroidism.
