Hypoparathyroidism should be managed with help from your doctors.

You and your doctor may work together to develop a plan to manage your condition. Dietary changes, supplements or medicines may be recommended to help maintain the balance of minerals (calcium and phosphate) in your body. Keeping a journal of symptoms may allow doctors to identify patterns and help manage your condition.

Management Goals

The management of hypoparathyroidism focuses on maintaining blood calcium levels with oral calcium and active vitamin D. For patients being treated for hypoparathyroidism, blood calcium levels are typically maintained at the lower end of the normal range (approximately 2.1 to 2.3 mmol/L).
