Is it common to have thyroid issues and low vitamin D?

It is quite common for a person to have both primary hyperparathyroidism and vitamin D deficiency, since primary hyperparathyroidism can lead to decreased vitamin D stores. This can sometimes make it difficult to establish the diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism. It is generally advisable to have the blood vitamin D levels checked during the work-up of parathyroid disease.
