Resolved Question:

Hello,
I just want to double checked with an specialist about my blood results, which could indicate a possible Hypoparathyroidism problem. My initial vitamin D levels were 15 nmol/l with normal calcium levels, however at that time my PTH levels were not measure, so I'm not very sure if they were high. In a second blood test (2 months after), my vitamin D levels were 74 nmol/l with normal calcium levels and my PTH levels were 16, and three months later the levels came to 94 nmol/l, again with normal calcium levels but 9 of PTH. I took 8,000 to 10,000 UI of Vitamin D3 and other cofactors (Vitamin k2, magnesium) and magnesium baths at night. Now I'm just waiting to reap blood test to make sure that my parathyroid glands are working fine, do you think could be a risk of presenting a potential problem in my glands because of my previous PTH level. I cut down my vit D3 dosage to 3,000 ui per day just to keep my levels, however I still experience symptoms (occasional tingling in legs and arms, pin and needles sensations in less intensity but occasionally i got them)
I would appreciate any help and advice,
Kind regards,
Ivonne

Yes, you should be fine

The parathyroid issue wouldn't cause permanent damage now that it is correct

you should be careful with your vitamin D level though.

It doesn't need to be that high and

too high of levels can cause toxicity
