Abstract

Hypoparathyroidism is a relatively rare endocrine disease characterised by either null or inappropriately low secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH) for serum calcium levels. The other main laboratory findings include hypocalcaemia, inappropri- ately normal or high urine calcium excretion and hyperphosphataemia with low urine phosphate excretion. The management of hypoparathyroidism should be tailored to each individual case, which makes it a demanding undertaking in everyday clinical practice. In this review, we sought to focus on the diagnostic approach of hypoparathyroidism and the therapeutic challenges of the disease from a clinical perspective. Conventional treatment with vitamin D analogues and calcium salts is no longer the only available treatment, since replacement treatment with PTH(1-84) has recently been approved for the disease. However, the optimal treatment schedule is yet to be defined. . . .
