In brief: Bone, kidney.
Parathyroid hormone maintains a normal blood calcium by releasing calcium from bone, returning calcium from filtered calcium in the kidney and by stimulating production of active vitamin d in the kidney which helps calcium absorption through the intestine.

In brief: Endocrine functions
.They are small glands in the neck close to the thyroid glands that produce hormones that control the amount of calcium in the blood and therefore also in the bones to keep them strong.
