Welcome to Hypopara Answers: A resource for patients and families managing this challenging condition

What causes hypoparathyroidism?

If you have had thyroid surgery, your doctor may test your blood calcium and PTH levels after surgery. If your levels have not returned to normal after 6 months, you may have chronic hypoparathyroidism.

What are the symptoms?

Hypoparathyroidism may cause a wide range of symptoms that can be divided into three categories: physical, cognitive and emotional.

Talk with your doctor

Talk to your doctor if you have questions about hypoparathyroidism or experience symptoms.
