Parathyroid Hormone Treatment - How It Works?

Parathyroid Hormone Treatment - How It Works?

What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a medical condition wherein the bone becomes fragile and breaks easily even with a minor fall. The bones of spine, wrists and hips get affected the most. These fractured bones lead to severe pain and can force a person to become immobile. A spine fracture can even lead to a loss of height.

What is parathyroid hormone?
Parathyroid is a naturally occurring hormone that regulates the amount of calcium present in the body. They mitigate the risk of bone breakage in the body for a patient suffering with osteoporosis. These hormones are injected into the body on a daily basis to maintain the normal flow of calcium in the body.

How does the treatment work?
Treatments are available in the form of drugs and injections. A doctor can prescribe drugs, if the patient is at an increased rate of bone breakage. The parathyroid hormone helps to protect the bone from breaking, but have no role when the bone actually breaks. The body has a natural process of breaking a bone and rebuilding it by itself. Osteoporosis sets in motion when this process of bone formation is disturbed.

When does a doctor prescribe hormonal treatment?
If a patient has undergone a number of vertebral compression fractures and the condition has not improved, a doctor might suggest to undergo parathyroid hormone treatment. The treatment requires nursing support due to a patient’s delicate bone condition. A maximum dosage of 20 micro grams of parathyroid can be injected for a time duration not exceeding 2 years.

Things to know about the treatment:

  1. Be informed: It is good to be well informed about the course of the treatment, treatment duration, plausible problems etc. This will help a patient to be on top of the decision making process. The helpline of the 'National Osteoporosis Society' can be reached to understand the preparation required for a patient to undergo the treatment.
  2. Take the right dosage at the right time: Parathyroid injections should be injected on a daily basis for a maximum time period of 2 years. These injections are taken daily at the same time. It should be ensured that none of the injections are skipped without the prior approval of a doctor. The injection, which lasts for 28 days, needs to be stored in a refrigerator. In case a patient is travelling, special bags are available that has space for storing gel packs.
  3. Side effects: Most patients do not report any side effects, but they do exist. Possible side effects include dizziness, arthralgia, depression and headache. These symptoms often suggest that your body is reacting to the parathyroid hormone treatment. A doctor may or may not prescribe any further drugs to address these symptoms.

Looks to be a masculoskeletal pain. Give rest to the part where it hurts you. Apply dry heat and volini spray locally 2/3 times a day. May take carisoma compound tablets. 1 tab twice daily for 5 days. Physiotherapy like ultrasonic and short wave diathermy may also be beneficial. Take 8 - 10 of such sitting.

Dear hello, pain in legs could be due to many reasons including lack of water (some people do'nt drink enough water) or due to lack of b-complex, vit. E, d3 or cacium. You can take these supportive medicines for about a month, drink plenty of fluids. I hope you will settle.

Hello ,if pain is so severe and it has not reduced you should go to a doctor. Pain might be because of wrong positioning while sleeping or you might lift any heavy weight or else .Back pain is radiating towards abdomen that may be muscular pain or else gas problem. If there is hardness of muscle so you can apply ice otherwise apply hot water fermentation. For that you can use hot water bag or hot water bottle. Other alternative way is you can spray any instant pain relief spray like move or volini or relispray for better instant pain relief and yes don't forget to select proper position while sleeping, use pillows below your knees if you lie on your back and if you lie down in side lying position so apply pillow in between your both legs in a vertical direction.
