Hyperparathyroidism: Hyoerparathyroidism (h) is not hereditary. If your mom had is, that does not predispose you to have it. If you think that you have h, see a physician (p) and have the p order a pth, calcium and phosphorus levels. If you have h, the PTH and calcium will be high and the phosphorus will be low. Good luck.

What is your questio: What is your question.You say your mother had hyperparathyroidism and you are too showing with you. If you have been diagnosed with Hyperparathyroidism.then you should consult an endocrinologist as you are only 33 years old and may need to have surgery for it But if you think you may have it,then consult your Primary care doctor to find out by doing a blood test
