  2. 2.Hyperparathyroidism

    Hyperparathyroidism is a disorder in which the parathyroid glands in the neck are overactive and produce too much parathyroid hormone (PTH). This hormone causes calcium to be released from bones and into the blood.

    You should visit your primary care physician who will likely coordinate care with a specialist. Hyperparathyroidism is usually treated with surgery that involves removing the glands to make sure your blood calcium levels remain normal.
