Calcium & Parathyroid Disorders

High blood calcium levels are most commonly caused by abnormal function of parathyroid glands. Parathyroids are four small glands next to the thyroid. They regulate calcium metabolism. They produce a hormone called parathyroid hormone. Too much parathyroid hormone causes more calcium to be released from the bones, and raises levels of calcium in the blood and urine above normal. This condition is called primary hyperparathyroidism. Over time, this can result in osteoporosis (weak bones that break easily), kidney stones, kidney problems etc.

Our endocrinologists have a vast experience in diagnosing and treating calcium disorders. They also perform parathyroid ultrasound to locate the abnormal parathyroid glands when surgery is indicated.
