What diseases affect the parathyroid gland?

Normal parathyroid gland function is presented first. Hyperparathyroidism (parathyroid disease) is discussed next, including high blood calcium, symptoms and complications of hyperparathyroidism (osteoporosis, chronic fatigue, kidney stones, stroke, high blood pressure and increased cancer risks and others).

Moreover, which hormone is released by the parathyroid gland?

When the calcium in our blood goes too low, the parathyroid glands make more PTH. Increased PTH causes the body to put more calcium into the blood. Increased PTH causes the bones to release their calcium into the blood.

What produces parathyroid hormone?

Parathyroid hormone is secreted from four parathyroid glands, which are small glands in the neck, located behind the thyroid gland. Parathyroid hormone regulates calcium levels in the blood, largely by increasing the levels when they are too low. Kidneys – parathyroid hormone reduces loss of calcium in urine.
