Hyperparathyroidism and digestive issues - looking for input
As a result of routine blood tests - that I may have hyperparathyroidism. I have developed new digestive issues - gas, constipation, etc - and wondering if it's possible they're connected. As I have been asymptomatic otherwise with calcium and PTH results that are concerning but aren't off the charts, hoping that someone has had an experience they can share. How common are digestive issues in suspected or newly diagnosed hyperparathyroidism? I'm a worrier about the first order so, frankly, am hoping this isn't some new terrible condition and all linked to a parathyroid issue. Thank you in advance for your response.
@stacy-0 Constipation is a common symptom. Digestive issues can be as well. I had so many symptoms that went away after that I didn't even notice until they were gone. My digestive issues seem more linked to gluten for me. I wish I had discovered I had this years ago but am still glad I finally had an answer to so many issues my doctor ignored.
