Hypoparathyroidism is a rare condition in which the parathyroid glands fail to produce sufficient amounts of parathyroid hormone or the parathyroid hormone produced lacks biological activity. The parathyroid glands are part of the endocrine system..

Hypoparathyroidism most often occurs because of the surgical removal of some or all of the parathyroid glands.

  • Treatment
  • The treatment of hypoparathyroidism is directed toward the specific symptoms that are apparent in each individual and the lab tests. Treatment is aimed at raising calcium levels high enough to provide symptom relief without causing abnormally high levels of calcium in the blood (hypercalcemia) or in the urine (hypercalciuria).
  • Recommended specialist
  • If you have Hypoparathyroidism, then a visit to an endocrinologist is recommended.
