In brief: Answer is No

There is no risk of HyPER/HYPOthyroidism as you enter menopause The Calcium level in blood does not rise Parathyroid Gland is normal There may be depletion of calcium from the bones causing Osteoporosis and therefor Cacium and Vitamin Supplement is recommended after menopause

In brief: Parathyroid

There is nothing about menopause (loss of estrogen) that affect the parathyroid.
With menopause, you start to lose bone faster, and get osteoporosis. Blood ca does not rise because the loss of bone ca is very gradual. An elevated ca may suggest hyperparathyroidism, or many other causes. See your doctor for further work up.
