1. parathyroid regulates calcium

removal of usually one malfunctioning of 4 is not a big deal. had one removed mid November last year, a couple weeks of calcuim and D3 supplements and I am fine (though it was probably easier for my surgeon to get to as he had removed my thyroid 3 years earlier LOL)

high CRP can be a marker for cancers but it isn't very specific or accurate, and it is probably more related to your Crohn's...did you also have high blood calcium? why did they suspect parathyroid?

3. The parathyroid doesn't regulate metabolism, but the thyroid does.

It could have something to do with glucose tolerance and insulin secretion though because the parathyroid can , and that could make you feel cold or hot throughout the day depending on what was happening with glucose levels. I know parathyroid hormone levels can affect glucose metabolism and my glucose levels make a difference in how hot/cold I feel.

Sending positive thoughts your way that you get some answers from your doc and that there's an easy solution.

5. High CRP indicates inflammation,

such as from your C.D.

6. DH has Crohns

Which causes all kinds of things related to the inflammation, and possibly side effects of the meds you take. He has bad arthritis in his knees and has to see a dermatologist about a little bump on his hand which may be a skin cancer, all related. Best of luck to you.

7. Crohn's is one of the auto immune diseases,

and one of the worst. I wish I could offer you more than good wishes, but it sounds like you are doing what you can to take care of it.

9. As one who has Crohns relatively mildly: CRP is one of the main tests used for how that is going

If someone who is known to have Crohns has a high CRP, that's far more likely to indicate a relapse, or general severity, of the Crohns, than anything to do with cancer.

I don't know very much about parathyroid conditions, but I HAVE heard that Crohns can cause parathyroid problems, probably through interfering with absorption of vitamin D and calcium.


So, while obviously you need to get medical advice and help for this, I would guess that both problems are most likely due to the Crohns rather than to cancer.
