How to get your PTH tested

Order PTH (parathyroid hormone) blood testing online

In the majority of US states you can order PTH testing online and have the blood drawn at a local blood draw center (see my general overview of the process).

I'd suggest ordering from Walk-In Lab because they have the cheapest price I know of ($38), and I've been happy with their service. You can also compare the other 6 PTH test providers I've found.

Take a look at my state-specific issues page if you're in AZ, MD, NJ, NY or RI.

Understanding the results

Chris Masterjohn, a man roughly 17x smarter than me, has a helpful podcast episode discussing PTH.

The American Association for Clinical Chemistry has helpful pages for understanding the test and answering common questions.
