Calcium Pro app for iPhone and iPad
Blood calcium, vitamin D, and osteoporosis are important health issues. The consequences of abnormal levels are often life-changing and occasionally life-threatening. Using this app is the equivalent to spending hours with the world’s most experienced doctors teaching you about your calcium, parathyroid, osteoporosis, and vitamin D issues. Your tests results are analyzed to determine if a problem exists, what risks are associated, and what to do about it. Beautiful graphs make understanding these problems simple!
Blood tests and bone density scans can be difficult to interpret—even many doctors do not diagnose calcium, vitamin D, and parathyroid problems correctly or timely. Hyperparathyroidism is a disease that affects 1 in 800 people and 1 in 250 women over 50 and is very often overlooked while patients suffer from chronic fatigue, memory loss, depression, osteoporosis, bone pain and many other symptoms. Calcium Pro is a powerful software program that will analyze your calcium health and provide you guidance about the status of your bones, kidneys, parathyroid glands, vitamin D, and other related health issues.
You start by entering your test results for calcium, parathyroid hormone, and vitamin D. Then we look at your bone density (osteoporosis levels). CalciumPro will analyze and graph your tests making them easy to understand. It will let you know the status of your parathyroid glands and your chance of having hyperparathyroidism. Suggested next steps are given. Tracking tools will show your calcium and vitamin D levels over time, and will show if your bones are losing density (worsening osteoporosis), or gaining bone density. There are important learning tools on every page, and an extensive video and reading library at the end. The app will provide guidance about talking to your physician regarding the possible need for surgery and other important steps.
A Risk Assessment Tool shows your relative risk for conditions associated with high blood calcium: Osteoporosis, Heart Disease, Heart Arrhythmias and Palpitations, High Blood Pressure, Kidney Stones and Kidney Failure, GERD, several Cancers, and others. Watch your risk assessment graphs change as you address your calcium problems.
This app was developed by doctors at the Norman Parathyroid Center, the world’s leading parathyroid and calcium treatment center using over 4,000,000 data points from over 30,000 patients. Let the world’s leading doctors help you understand these problems so you and your doctor can make important, informed decisions. Take control of your own health!
Pros and cons of Calcium Pro app for iPhone and iPad
Calcium Pro app good for
Please believe what the app tells you and take action based on that, not what your doctor says.
This app is a wonderful tool! I gained so much knowledge from its content that I could personally diagnose people having hyperparathyroidism!!! The knowledge gained allowed me to push my mothers bottom feeding doctors (or goats and monkeys) into several corners, where they had no choice but to listen. If you or someone you know is suffering from the symptoms of hyperparathyroidism, plug all the data you have into the app and present it to the doctors and then get scheduled for Dr. Norman and his team to save your life!!!
Although you can learn everything you need to know (and then some) regarding hyperparathyroidism on Dr. Normans parathyroid.com website, and you can ultimately diagnose and refer yourself given that information, its not until you put YOUR values into this app that you truly understand YOUR situation. It is reaffirming and motivating. Maybe it wont convince your obstinate PMDs medical opinion, but it will eliminate your and your familys doubts and skepticism, and it will save you time, money, and continued suffering. Not to mention, its very interesting to see how your case compares to thousands of others. Would certainly recommend!
I stumbled on this app while researching causes of high calcium levels. I love this app. It is so easy to use. This app made me smarter than my primary care Dr. This app allowed me to talk intelligently with my dr. about what test were needed and those not. My Dr. actually wanted to have me tested for bone cancer. Of course the pet/ct scan came back negative, as the app told me it would. With this app I was able to get my primary care Dr. back on track. I have never felt more in control of a medical problem. This app will help me to monitor the progression of my cure into the future. I felt so knowledgeable after showing up for surgery.
Calcium Pro turned them into meaningful and easily understood conclusions and information about my condition. The Calcium Pro graphics and conclusions helped me verify my longstanding opinion that my health problems were caused by high levels of calcium.
For more than three years my calcium readings had been higher than 10, but just above the "acceptable range." My vitamin D was at the low end of the acceptable range, but would not improve.
Based on my research, I felt I had hyperparathyroidism but my local doctors disagreed. Instead, they felt that my readings were just barely out of the normal range and could not be the cause of my symptoms. I deferred to the doctors until mid 2016. By then my health had further deteriorated. After a battery of tests my medical professionals had no answers and no solutions.
When I restarted my research into high calcium and low vitamin D, I found the Calcium Pro app on Parathyoid.com. The app confirmed and substantiated that my high calcium readings and resultant symptoms were caused by hyperparathyroidism, which could be cured only by surgery.
I immediately contacted Norman Parathyroid Center in Tampa, Florida and arranged for parathyroid surgery in early August 2016. We flew 3,000 miles to have Doctors Norman and Boone perform this complex, but quick, surgery. Within 3 ½ hours, my surgery was complete, I was through recovery and I was released.
Immediately after surgery, the severe pain in my feet and legs was gone. It will take several weeks for my body to properly function with the normal calcium levels.
Thank you Norman Parathyroid Center for your expertise, your care, your professionalism and, last not least, your amazing web site at Parathyoid.com.
Thank you Calcium Pro for helping document and solidify my self-diagnosis.
After I input several years of my blood work results,
This is a world class life saving app made by world class life saving medical team! This app allowed me to diagnose myself and ultimately know more about this disease than my primary care doctor or the first surgeon I sought to cure my disease. I just completed my surgery with Dr. Norman and his team in Tampa, and I wholeheartedly urge any patient, anywhere, to find a way to get to Tampa and be cured! The app is simple to use, and highly accurate and clear cut. Get this app, and do yourself a favor and get to Tampa. You will never regret it. Take control of your life and your well being.
Some bad moments
The part of the app that demonstrates calcium versus vitamin d versus pth keeps telling me that I havent input any data. This is obviously false. Please fix it if youre going to charge people money for this app.
Didnt do anything for me.
I paid to install the app and once I was post-op I deleted it because the app doesnt tell me anything I dont already know; and now that I still have hyperparathyroidism and want to download the app, I have to re-purchase it?
No thanks. Useless; ripoff.
This app has had an amazing amount of thought and work put into it. There are just a few things that would help it be an awesome app.
It would be beneficial to be able to sync between devices.
There needs to be more data entries available for numbers of surgeries.
In some cases, it was hard to input data because the keyboard covered the answers, the text would not scroll up to see what I was typing.
And It would also be nice to be able to share by email, not just Facebook and be able to print out a report to show family and doctors.
Otherwise, its a wonderfully useful app for people suffering from this disease.
This is an incredible app with so many wonderful features and amazing analysis capabilities!
In an effort to help you perfect it, I wanted to point out that the "PTH analysis" verbage says that the graph is showing the calcium/PTH levels instead of just the PTH levels.
I hope Ive understood your wonderful educational website well enough to be accurate in my observation :-)
As a doctor, I find this app to be truly amazing in its scope and depth as regards to helping one figure out if they should seek help for a possible parathyroid problem. It also has cool graphing features and an extensive learning library. Well done!!
This is like having a Doctor in you Iphone. If only we could get the Doctors to use this App, there would be far few people suffering with Parathyroid diease.
