Bone & Calcium

Bone health and calcium balance in the body are closely related and regulated by hormones such as Parathyroid hormone (PTH) and vitamin D. Endocrinologists specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting these including:

  • Osteoporosis (fragile bones at high risk of fracture)
  • High calcium levels (hypercalcaemia)
  • Overactive parathyroid glands (hyperparathyroidism)
  • Paget’s disease of the bone
