Hypercalcemia and Sexual Dysfunction

I ve found that I have higher calcemia than normal but normal PTH and calcitonine(main calcium hormone regulators). I ve found that hypercalcemia is strongly linked to depression, fatigue, lost sexual desire and sexuale dysfunction.

Here a link, but you can find others articles and studies.

Normally calcium is required for several cellular activities and to build up bone mass. Normally calcium is stored in the bone. Two action are always working: bone building and bone reabsorption. These action are normally in percfect balance. Too much bone making leads to a hypocalcemia, too much bone reabsorption leads to hypercalcemia.

So we have several calcium hormone regulators:

Bone re-uptaking action: PTH, cortisol, tirooid hormones

Bone building action: calcitonin, sexual hormones( T, E2, etc.) Note: hypogonadism people display also osteoporosis.

Vitamin D helps both action, it is like a referee to bone metabolism.

So, I guess that my hypercalcemia is due to SSRIpoison too. And I guess that high blood calcemia is due to my low free Testosterone. I have normal calcitonine, PTH, T3 T4, cortisol.. but I have low free testosterone.

What do you think? I will suggest to check it out in your next blood test. (It is cheaper)

I have excess calcium in bones and too little calcium in the blood.
