That one I remember, it increases calcium levels. One of the first patients I had as a student was a woman who was experiencing severe carpal spasms after thyroidectomy. Seem like the surgeon also removed most of the parathyroids at the same time. A common complication back in those days.
On my board exams in 4+ decades ago it seemed like every third question was on whether calcium or phosphorus levels rose or fell with certain diseases. I must have had a lucky coin to flip that day. A modicum of knowledge of physiology helped, too.
