It will also aid in understanding the complications of living with Hypoparathyroidism, and the progress that has been made in the scientific advancements for this disease. Parathyroid glands help control the level of calcium in the body. They do this by producing parathyroid hormones, called PTH. Hypoparathyroidism is a disorder in which the parathyroid glands in the neck do not produce enough parathyroid hormone. This condition typically occurs when there is injury to the parathyroid glands during thyroid and neck surgery.
