Does hyperparathyroid actually mean anything other than elevated calcium? Because I also have that but from google research it doesn't seem like it is much of a threat.
Hyperparathyroid means your body is putting out an excess of the hormone.
There are a few causes - often it’s a benign tumour on theparathyroid glands.
And yes - it should be investigated.
The parathyroid is near the thyroid gland.
You end up with excess calcium in the blood - sometimes robbing it from your bones...
You should have blood work for calcium and parathyroid hormone levels done.https://www.parathyroid.com
I’m familiar with it because I was tested for it.
I was convinced that’s what I had - but both my calcium and parathyroid hormone levels were good.
