Hypoparathyroidism is a disorder characterized by hypocalcemia and low or absent parathyroid hormone (PTH). While standard treatment of hypoparathyroidism consists of oral calcium and vitamin D supplementation, maintaining serum calcium levels can be a challenge, and concerns exist regarding hypercalciuria and ectopic calcifications that can be associated with such treatment. Hypoparathyroidism is the only classic endocrine deficiency disease for which the missing hormone, PTH, is not yet an… CONTINUE READING
