PARATHYROID SURGERY Hyperparathyroidism (parathyroid disease caused by a parathyroid tumor resulting in high blood calcium) is easy if you know about the facts and the myths of parathyroid disease and hyperparathyroidism. These are the parathyroid facts There are no drugs that will make parathyroid disease better. Nearly all parathyroid patients have symptoms; 95% know it--and feel bad. Most of the rest just don't know it until the disease is fixed. Symptoms of parathyroid disease do NOT correlate with the level of calcium in the blood. Many patients with only slightly elevated calcium and parathyroid hormone will have BAD symptoms and develop lots of secondary health issues. All patients with parathyroid disease have calcium levels and PTH levels that go up and down. Fluctuating levels of calcium are typical of parathyroid disease. How high the calcium has become has nothing to do with the severity of hyperparathyroidism. It is the duration (in years) that the calcium is high that causes problems. Osteoporosis drugs have no place in the treatment of parathyroid disease. Parathyroid disease is a lethal disease. But just like high cholesterol and high blood pressure, it takes 25 years before it starts killing. There is only one treatment for parathyroid disease (hyperparathyroidism): Surgery to remove the parathyroid tumor The success rate and complication rate for parathyroid surgery is VERY dependent upon the surgeon's experience.
