The Parathyroid and Osteoporosis

The parathyroid glands are four small, pea-sized glands located on the back side of the thyroid gland. The parathyroid glands are named for their proximity to the thyroid, and although somewhat interrelated, serve a completely different role than the thyroid gland.


The major function of the parathyroid glands is to maintain the body's calcium level within a very narrow range, so that the nervous and muscular systems can function properly, and so that the calcium in our bones is replenished.

 

When blood calcium levels drop below a certain point, calcium-sensing receptors in the parathyroid gland are activated to release Parathyroid Hormone (PTH) into the blood stimulating osteoclasts in bone to break down bone and release calcium. PTH also increases gastrointestinal calcium absorption by activating vitamin D, and promotes calcium uptake by the kidneys. Absence of PTH can be associated with feelings of fatigue and anxiety.

 

Calcium is used primarily for three things:

·         To provide the electrical energy for our nervous system 

·         To provide the electrical energy for our muscular system

·         To provide strength to our skeletal system

 

Everyone knows that calcium is used to make our bones strong, but this is really only half the story. The bones themselves serve as the storage system that we use to make sure we will always have a good supply of calcium. If all is working well, we are constantly taking calcium out of our bones in small amounts and constantly putting calcium back in, with the sole purpose of keeping our calcium levels in the blood at the correct level. Remember, the most important role of calcium is to provide for the proper functioning of our nervous system and not to provide strength to our bones - that is secondary.

 

The Parathyroid Hormone (PTH) increases blood calcium while the Calcitonin produced in the thyroid decreases blood calcium. Both PH and Calcitonin need to act together to keep blood calcium at optimal levels.

 

When our blood calcium levels get elevated, not only can we have changes in our personality, typically noticed by our loved ones, but other nervous-system symptoms like depression, etc. If the calcium being pulled out of our bones is left unchecked, you are also headed down the road to severe osteoporosis.
