excess secretion of parathyroid hormone by the parathyroid glands resulting in the disturbance of calcium metabolism. Symptoms may include increased blood levels of calcium (hypercalcemia), decreased blood levels of phosphorus, loss of calcium from bone, and kidney stone formation.
A condition in which the body produces excessive amounts of parathyroid hormone (PTH), disrupting the regulation of calcium. As a result, calcium is taken from the bones; blood levels of calcium rise; and increased amounts of calcium may be excreted in urine.
refers to overactivity and growth of the parathyroid gland or glands. In the most common form, this is accompanied by hypercalcemia and may cause or worsen many problems including kidney stones, depression, ulcer disease, pancreatitis, fatigue, constipation, osteoporosis,or joint pains.
A condition caused by overactive parathyroid glands, which produce too much parathyroid hormone, stimulating increased levels of calcium in the blood stream. The excess calcium released by the bones leads to osteoporosis and osteomalacia (both bone-weakening diseases).
is a disorder of enlarged, overactive parathyroid glands which produce too much parathyroid hormones, which in turn stimulate increased levels of calcium in the blood stream. The excess calcium leads to osteoporosis and osteomalacia (both bone-weakening diseases). The common secondary result of hyperparathyroidism is kidney failure. Causes of hyperparathyroidism are unknown in most cases.
The Condition"...Possible complications include skeletal damage, urinary tract infections, kidney damage or kidney stones, peptic ulcers, inflammation of the pancreas, high blood pressure, nervous system disorders, and rare complications from surgery..."
a condition that results from the oversecretion of PTH by the parathyroid glands resulting in hypercalcemia; symptoms include bone loss, bone pain, high blood pressure, muscle weakness, kidney stones, stomach problems, and mental dysfunction
Over production of the parathyroid hormone (PTH) due to pathological enlargement of one or more parathyroid glands. Chronically high levels of PTH can cause symptoms including bone loss, bone pain, high blood pressure, kidney stones and mental dysfunction in varying combinations and severity.
Loss of bone mineralization (osteoporosis) because of increased PTH secretion (primary) or increased demand for serum calcium (secondary) , resulting in multiple systemic complications, loss of alveolar bone architecture, and occasionally giant cell tumor ("brown tumor").
Excess parathyroid hormone (which regulates calcium and phosphorus metabolism) production. This condition causes generally tender bones, calcium deposits and can lead to osteoporosis, as well as muscle weakness, gastrointestinal problems, vomiting and nausea.
A condition marked by over production of the hormone parathormone by the parathyroid glands. These glands are located next to the thyroid gland in the neck. High levels of parathormone result in high blood levels of calcium that the kidneys must excrete. This condition can contribute to the formation of kidney stones.
Overproduction of parathyroid hormone (PTH) by a diseased parathyroid gland. More about this. The excess PTH causes the calcium to be too high, leading to kidney stones, osteoporosis, and several nevous system complaints. More about this.
(HY-per-PAYR-uh-THY-ROY-dih-zum) A condition in which the parathyroid gland (one of four pea-sized organs found on the thyroid) makes too much parathyroid hormone. This causes a loss of calcium from the bones and an increased level of calcium in the blood. Symptoms include bone pain and kidney problems.
Too much parathyroid hormone resulting in abnormally high levels of calcium in the blood ( hypercalcemia). This can cause bone resorption and osteoporosis, calcium deposits in the kidneys, muscular weakness, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pains, and drowsiness. Hyperparathyroidism can be primary or secondary. Primary hyperparathyroidism is a disorder of the parathyroid glands in which one or more of the parathyroid glands are enlarged (hyperplastic), overactive, and secrete too much parathyroid hormone. In secondary hyperparathyroidism, the parathyroid glands themselves are normal but a problem such as kidney failure makes the body resistant to the action of parathyroid hormone.
when the amount of parathyroid hormone (PTH), which regulates calcium metabolism in the body is secreted at an inappropriately high rate. The calcium in the bloodstream (serum calcium) stays too high and spills into the urine, causing stone formation
Condition where the four pea-sized glands behind the thyroid gland at the front of your neck makes too much of the hormone called parathyroid hormone (PTH) that keeps the right levels of calcium in your blood and bones.
The Condition"...with primary hyperparathyroidism who also has borderline nutritional status may develop deficiencies in the following substances that are necessary for normal bone formation: Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Manganese..."
The Condition"...Immobilization and gastrointestinal illness with vomiting or diarrhea can cause calcium levels to rise, and if these conditions develop, patients with hyperparathyroidism should seek medical attention..."
Hyperparathyroidism is overactivity of the parathyroid glands resulting in excess production of parathyroid hormone (PTH). It was first described and treated in the 1930s by Fuller Albright of Massachusetts General Hospital, working at the Mallinckrodt General Clinical Research Center.
Recommendation Increased Water Consumption"If the patient and doctor choose long-term follow-up over surgery, the patient should try to drink lots of water, get plenty of exercise, and avoid certain diuretics, such as the thiazides..."
