My doc is investigating my elevated calcium level. He mentioned a parathyroidectomy which sounds scary. Has anybody here had this procedure?
For a second opinion why don't you consider going to see a good naturopath? Take the test results and anything the doctor might have said, and see what they say. They're generally excellent with dietary issues whereas doctors are notoriously useless.
I prefer evidence-based medicine involving scientific principles to quackery. My calcium intake falls within the recommended guidelines, which is the ONLY dietary factor that might affect PTH levels, and my perfectly reliable GP asked about that.

Please provide evidence to back up your assertion that "doctors are notoriously useless".

As it turns out, I saw my GP yesterday and thankfully all is back to normal. No throat-cutting for me!

it’s worth keeping in mind when consuming mredical research news that medical doctors are not doing most of the heavy lifting in medical research. And the press reporting on sensational things have approximately no idea at all.

Sorry mate, I'm not going to enter into this tit-for-tat competition with articles... If you choose to limit your choices, that's up to you.

And btw.. those articles you posted are absolute garbage. There's a bit of an agenda going on just in case you didn't realise.

I remember posting this information back in either the 2017 or possibly 2016 version of this thread. I must say I'm pleased to see it's finally starting to spread because this is is a vital piece of information that corrects many decades of deadly misunderstanding.

That said. The relationship between dietary intake and metabolic levels of things is complex and resists simplistic reasoning.

There’s a concept of people as non-responders to exercise bandied around at present Let’s put that to rest....

Refuting the myth of non-response to exercise training: 'non-responders' do respond to higher dose of training.

Summary:- they need up to 5hrs/wk of cardio to get similar results of others.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28133739/



‘Non-responders’ respond to Sprint Interval training. Everyone responds to Resistance training (lifting weights).

Yep chemo suppress your immune system, so you'll be susceptible to bugs and things. I got shingles when my immune system was down, let's hope you don't! It was horrendous!
