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, abdominal pain, bone pain, psychological overtone, fatigue, memory loss...

In brief: Consequences of

If hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is not treated, the elevated calcium results in small and medium blood vessel calcification which increases the risk for stroke and heart attack.
Also, this condition will lead to osteopenia and ultimately osteoporosis which presents a risk for fractures (hip, wrist, spine, etc.). Finally, if left untreated, elevation of calcium can damage the kidneys.
