If my vitgamin d level is very low, but there isn't anything wrong with my thyroid should I take calcitriol 0.25MCG?
Calcitriol is a form of Vitamin D and is given to control problems associated with low levels of parathyroid hormone.
Parathyroid hormone is produced by the parathyroid glands. The parathyroid glands are found on each lobe of the thyroid gland. It is quite possible to have normal thyroid function and abnormal parathyroid gland function.
