    what is the normal serum PTH level online it say 10-50pg/ml
    but the lab sheet that USMLE give for lab values PTH is 230-630pg/ml

    Is there something wrong? I don't understand

    Unless the units are mixed up or they're talking about hyperparathyroid patients...those numbers are way too high.
