AnswerThe parathyroid regulates calcium by producing hormones that cause calcium levels to increase.Also, calcitonin is a substance that regulates calcium in the blood.
It is the name of the test used to determine parathyroid hormone (PTH). It stands for ImmunoRadioMetric Assay.
The C-terminal PTH assay is used to diagnose the ongoing disturbances in PTH metabolism that occur with secondary and tertiary hyperparathyroidism.
The PTH test is performed on a sample of the patient's blood, withdrawn from a vein into a vacuum tube. The procedure, which is called a venipuncture, takes about five minutes.
The patient should have nothing to eat or drink from midnight of the day of the test.
The assay for intact PTH and the N-terminal fragment, which are both measured at the same time, is more accurate in detecting sudden changes in the PTH level. For this reason, the N-terminal PTH assay is used to monitor a patient's response to therapy.
Drugs that decrease PTH include cimetidine and propranolol.
both PTH and mechanical forces work together in bone remodeling. PTH determines when or if bone is to be broken down or formed. Once the PTH determines this then the mechanisms ( osteoblasts and osteoclasts) will begin to build or destroy in bone remodeling :) hope this helps!
Parathyroid gland secrete parathyroid hormone called PTH. PTH regulates calcium level in the body by transferring calcium from the bone and when body has excess calcium, PTH helps them to deposit into the bone.
