62) High PTH

October 3, 2006

El Milagro:
I called before going over to ensure they’re on time today and got here about 3:15 today. Matt stuck me and hooked me up while talking about something he thought I’d be interested in. I read David’s book for awhile and then put it down and snoozed until 6 or so and woke up to see Jennifer the Dietician making her sweep of the chairs. She came over and we discussed my recent lab results.

They are thinking I’m on a very high dose of binders and that even with those and the Sensipar my phosphorus and PTH (parathyroid hormone) are very high. J the D explained that they want me to start taking Sensipar 90’s as soon as I get them and we’ll see what that does. If nothing, they may have to send me to a specialist to check out my thyroid glands. Maybe some cutting will be indicated she seemed to suggest. Oh boy!

I watched NOVA and got home by 8.

Notes: In at 75.8 Kg. and out at 71.5 Kg.
