Parathyroid hyperplasia occurs when all four of your parathyroid glands are enlarged and produce too much parathyroid hormone. Your parathyroid glands are tiny glands on the back of your thyroid gland on your neck that produce this hormone. It controls the levels of calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D in your blood and bones. 

Our leading expertise makes us a destination for thyroid and parathyroid treatment, including the most complex parathyroid conditions. You receive personal attention to relieve symptoms and enhance your health and well-being.  

What Are Parathyroid Hyperplasia Symptoms? 

Although parathyroid hyperplasia can be inherited (a changed gene passed down from a family member), the condition is most often caused by chronic kidney disease or a calcium or vitamin D deficiency. These conditions cause enlarged thyroid glands that overproduce parathyroid hormone, when there isn’t enough vitamin D and calcium.  

Parathyroid hyperplasia can also cause hyperparathyroidism, which can lead to osteoporosis, kidney stones, stomach pain, mood problems and high blood pressure. 

The symptoms of parathyroid hyperplasia are: 

  • Bone pain or fractures 
  • Constipation 
  • Muscle soreness 
  • Nausea 
  • Tiredness 

What’s the Treatment for Parathyroid Hyperplasia? 

If you have parathyroid hyperplasia because of kidney disease or a calcium or vitamin D deficiency, your doctor may recommend supplements or medicine to restore healthy parathyroid function.  

But if your parathyroid glands are overproducing parathyroid hormone — and it’s not caused by another condition — your doctor will recommend surgery. Surgeons remove most of the glands, except for a small portion. They place this tissue in your forearm or neck, so it’s easy to access if your symptoms return. This implanted gland tissue ensures your body produces enough parathyroid hormone.
