Patient : My recent blood work shows low levels of Vitamin D (17) and low levels of alkaline phosphatase (15). I am a 47-year-old female diagnosed two years ago with itp (low platelets) for which I receive no treatment as my platelets are steady in the 60-80 range. I have recently been experiencing extreme fatigue, body aches --strangely this week my feet have been really bothering me! I just feel awful to be honest. I am awaiting blood results for pth and calcium levels but my calcium levels recently were only at about 9.6. What type of doctor could best diagnose what is going on here? Blood work thus far has been through my obgyn.
