Parathyroid Disorders

  • The Parathyroid Glands are small glands located in the neck that produce parathyroid hormone (PTH) and are responsible for controlling the amount of calcium in the blood and within the bones.

    • Hyperparathyroidism is a condition in which one or more of the parathyroid glands produces too much parathyroid hormone which results in a raised calcium level in the blood. Discover more
    • Hypoparathyroidism is a very rare condition in which there are insufficient levels of parathyroid hormone resulting in lower than normal levels of calcium in the blood.
