In brief: Hyper parathyroid's

Is an excess of parathyroid hormone in the bloodstream due to overactivity of one or more of the body's four parathyroid glands.
These oval, grain-of-rice-sized glands are located in your neck. The parathyroid glands produce parathyroid hormone, which helps maintain an appropriate balance of calcium in the bloodstream and in tissues that depend on calcium for proper functioning.

In brief: High parathyroid

Hyperparathyroidism is a condition characterized by high parathyroid concentration.
Parathyroid hormone is responsible for regulating calcium level in blood. The most common cause of hyperparathyroidism is a growth on your parathyroid gland causing overproduction of this hormone. If high, it will raise calcium level in your blood causing osteoporosis, kidney stones, kidney problems, constipation..
