OBJECTIVE Measurement of bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with hypoparathyroidism directly addresses the effect of chronic under-exposure of bone to PTH. Because post-thyroidectomy hypoparathyroidism is potentially complicated by the pre-existence of thyrotoxicosis and the need for postoperative thyroxine replacement, we have studied a large group of patients with sporadic hypoparathyroidism who have been followed up in our endocrine clinic. Studies conducted in limited number of patients… CONTINUE READING
