Doctors often fear that raising vitamin D levels will further raise calcium blood levels in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism -- in which glands in the neck produce too much of the parathyroid hormone, which controls calcium levels. Yet without enough vitamin D, people are at increased risk of osteoporosis and broken bones. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and is vital for bone health.
