Cause of PTH
Renal - helps calcium reabsorption and phosphate excretion
Liver - help of 1alpha hydoxylase converts vitamin d3 to active d3 which helps again in reabsorption of calcium

PTH is secreted during low calcium

Most common cause of rickets is due to vitamin d deficiency along wwith dietary calcium and phosphate deficiency

Hope this helps you
