    How high can PTH go with Kidney disease? What can be done for high PTH? Mine was 338 and i'm worried.

    RE: Pth

    The first line of defense is a specialized vitamin D (often called Rocaltrol or Calcitriol). If that fails to bring your PTH down, they can also remove part of your parathyroid to bring down the levels. It's a fairly common surgery - I know many people who have had it done. I'm currently well controlled on the calcitriol
