Parathyroid hormone (PTH)

Parathyroid hormone is secreted from the four parathyroid glands, which are small glands in the neck, located behind the thyroid gland. Parathyroid hormone regulates calcium levels in the blood. Parathyroid hormone stimulates the release of calcium from large calcium stores in the bones into the bloodstream, reduces loss of calcium in urine and stimulates the production of active vitamin D in the kidneys.

Specimen requirement - 5 ml of peripheral blood collected in gel vacutainer tube and plasma/serum is isolated.

Reporting time - 1 day
