What is hypoparathyroidism?
Hypoparathyroidism is a condition in which the body doesn't make enough parathyroid hormone (PTH).
This hormone regulates the amount of calcium and phosphorus in your body's bones and blood. Decreased levels of PTH lead to low levels of calcium and high levels of phosphorus in the blood. This imbalance can lead to problems with bones, muscles, skin, and nerve endings.
