Description

++

Essentials of Diagnosis

++

  • Usually diagnosed before symptoms occur via complete blood count (CBC) test
  • Elevated calcium in the blood
  • Elevated parathyroid hormone
  • Decreased phosphorus in the blood
  • Vitamin D deficiency

++

General Considerations

++

  • May cause pathology in multiple organ systems
    • Gastrointestinal (GI): liver
    • Cardiovascular: heart, peripheral circulation, blood pressure
    • Integument
  • Decreased calcium in the bones
  • May result in secondary problems such as aerobic capacity and muscle endurance impairment, sarcopenia, weakness/impaired muscle performance, musculoskeletal problems, neuromuscular problems, indicating the need for physical therapy intervention depending on severity

Demographics

++
