In brief: Low calcium
Parathyroid hormone regulates calcium concentration in the blood.
When you have no parathyroid hormone, your calcium level will drop and your phosphorus level will rise. The treatment is to give back calcium and if you indeed have no parathyroid left, you will also need vitamin d- calcitriol.

In brief: PTH treatment
The standard treatment of hypoparathyroidism is vit D and calcium.
But sometimes the blood calcium is difficult to control. There is a new drug out called Natpara, which is parathyroid hormone (most of the protein). It has been around for a while but now is available as a hormone injectable. If you Ca is hard to control, talk to your doctor about this option.
