No significant associations were seen between all-cause mortality and every 100-pg/mL increase in serum level of parathyroid hormone
To our knowledge, this is the first prospective study to investigate the role of serum 25[OH]D, 1,25[OH]2D, and intact parathyroid hormone

Depression is associated with decreased 25- hydroxyvitamin D and increased parathyroid hormone
levels in older adults.
Older adults with low levels of vitamin D in their blood and high levels of parathyroid hormone
are at greater risk of depression, suggests a study in the May issue of Archives of General Psychiatry Researchers measured blood levels of vitamin D and parathyroid hormone
and assessed depression in 1,282 people, ages 65-95, of whom 26 had been diagnosed with major depression and 169 with minor depression.
Both low blood vitamin D levels and high parathyroid hormone
levels can be treated with higher dietary intake of vitamin D or calcium and increased sunlight exposure.
