Depends on calcium: If the calcium is elevated or high normal and PTH is significantly elevated, primary hyperparathyroidism is most likely cause and would most likely be treated with surgery. If the calcium is low the most likely cause is vitamin d deficiency.

More unusual younger: It is unusual to have hyperparathyroidism at age 26. Familial inherited conditions such as men1 and fhh should be considered in younger patients (under 40). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15490051.
