What Is Hypoparathyroidism?
Hypoparathyroidism is a rare condition that occurs when the parathyroid glands in the neck do not produce enough parathyroid hormone (PTH).
Everyone has four parathyroid glands, located near to behind the thyroid gland. Each small gland is the size of a grain of rice. The primary function of PTH is to regulate the level of calcium in the body. It also controls the level of phosphorus and participates in the production of the active form of vitamin D. All of these activities are required to maintain calcium balance.
Having too little PTH causes low levels of calcium and high levels of phosphorus in the body. This condition may not cause any serious medical problems when caught early, but it does require lifelong monitoring and treatment.
Causes of Hypoparathyroidism
Causes of hypoparathyroidism include:
injury to or removal of the parathyroid glands
DiGeorge syndrome (a genetic disorder that affects development of particular body systems)
genetics: individuals can be born without parathyroid glands or with glands that do not function properly
autoimmune disease (when your immune system rejects parathyroid tissues)
cancer radiation treatments
low magnesium levels: Magnesium is a mineral needed for PTH to be secreted by the parathyroid glands
