> Thanks for your valuable input.

You are welcome, and I'm glad I could help

> Do you have any suggestions on the thyroid test - I assume not at this point. I know that this is not a Endocrinology forum, but there is a wealth of information out there, that it does not hurt to ask.

I don't know what all of the various thyroid parameters mean, so no, I don't. Did your doctor have any comments about it?

> The other question is dealing with the parathyroid. While hyperparathyroidism is somewhat uncommon, this is an interesting illness, in that it seems to resemble depression symptoms (irritibility, poor memory, poor sleep and others).

Hypothyroidism (and, less often, hyperthyroidism) can resemble depression as well.

> They say it is easily diagnosed in that the PTH (parathyroid hormone) and serum Calcium will be elevated. I did not have a PTH done, but was curious of others opinion on this and other thyroid issues.

I don't know much about this, but I bet there's someone here who could answer that. (And again, what about asking your doc? That seems like a plan.)
