Hyperparathyroidism is an increase in parathyroid hormone levels in the blood. This occurs from a disorder either within the parathyroid glands or outside the parathyroid glands. Most people with primary disease have no symptoms at the time of diagnosis. When symptoms occur, they are due to elevated blood calcium. With long-standing elevation, the most common symptom is kidney stones. Other symptoms may include bone pain, weakness, depression, confusion, and increased urination. Both primary and secondary may result in osteoporosis.
In 80% of cases of primary hyperparathyroidism due to a single benign tumor, known as adenoma of the parathyroid gland. Most of the rest are associated with some of these adenomas. Rarely it may be associated with parathyroid Cancer. Secondary hyperparathyroidism is usually due to a deficiency of vitamin D, chronic kidney disease or other causes of low calcium in the blood. The diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism is made by finding elevated levels of calcium and PTH in blood.
Primary hyperparathyroidism can be cured by removal of the gland or hyperfunction of the parathyroid glands. In those without symptoms, a moderate increase in the level of calcium in the blood, normal kidneys, and normal bone density monitoring may be all that is required. In cinacalcet medication may also be used to reduce the PTH level. In persons with very high blood calcium levels, treatment may involve a large number of intravenous saline solution. Low levels of vitamin D should be corrected.
Primary hyperparathyroidism is the most common type. In developed countries, affected by one to four per thousand people. It occurs three times more often in women than in men and typically is diagnosed between the ages of 50 to 60 years. The disease was first described in 1700-ies. In the late 1800s, he was determined to be due to the parathyroid. Surgery as a treatment was first done in 1925.
