Besides, much parathyrin can also promote the hyperplasia of mast cells and then they will secrete histamine, which can also cause patients to have itchy skin.

Besides, if the metabolic disorder of electrolyte is very severe in patient’s body, dialysis will be a good choice to correct this disorder.
