Parathyroid problems: Hi. Too complex for small space. Primary hyperpara (PHPT) is a disease of parathyroids where too much PTH is secreted, which causes high blood calcium, with symptoms/signs of kidney stones, bone fractures, malaise, depression, high blood pressure, and others. Hypoparathy is a disease of parathyroids where they can't secrete enough PTH, with symptoms of numbness, tingling, and muscle twitching.
