He is ordering the PTH test I believe, yes. I am not on antibiotics so I am confused. I have read they tax the liver. I am going on Alinia soon which is hard on the liver and kidneys so I really don't want that to make things worse, but at this point, well I am running out of options.
I had my calcium and PTH checked several years ago when my dr was testing me for everything to find a cause for my symptoms.
There’s a good website on PTH - has a chart where you can check the calcium paired with the PTH values...and if it indicates a PT issue.
I didn’t know Alinia was hard on the kidneys. I take Alinia for 5 days a month.
I’ve had wonky kidney function tests for the past couple months but it followed the dapsone and daraprim weeks - not the Alinia dosing.
