Better health: First of all, something is seriously wrong with your list of conditions; you can't have hyperparathyroidism and hypoparathyroidism at the same time. If you have a parathyroid adenoma that needs to come out, and it is removed, you'll be surprised how much better you'll feel, and you can stop worrying about it giving you kidney stones, hypertension and more.
