    by Margarida Maia PhD on May 23, 2022

    Late recovery — longer than six months — from post-surgery hypoparathyroidism is not uncommon, and having levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) within the normal range may indicate whether patients are more likely to recover, a study found. “PTH is a useful biomarker in predicting long-term recovery of parathyroid function,” the researchers wrote, adding, “The chances The post PTH Levels Help Predict Recovery 6 Months After Thyroid Surgery appeared first on Hypoparathyroidism News.

  • Severe COVID-19 Suspected as Cause of Temporary Hypoparathyroidism
    by Marta Figueiredo PhD on May 9, 2022

    Severe COVID-19 could lead to the development of temporary hypoparathyroidism, a case report suggests. This report represents the third case of hypoparathyroidism secondary to severe COVID-19 infection noted in scientific literature. These rare instances, along with previous reports showing that the virus may worsen previously well-controlled hypoparathyroidism, highlight the damaging effects that COVID-19 can have The post Severe COVID-19 Suspected as Cause of Temporary Hypoparathyroidism appeared first on Hypoparathyroidism News.

  • Child with Hypoparathyroidism Has Kidney, Parathyroid Transplant

  • Blood Levels of Calcium, Phosphate Appear to Affect Cognitive Skills
    by Margarida Maia PhD on April 18, 2022

    Slower processing speed, or longer times to take in and use information, appear to be connected to lower blood calcium and higher blood phosphate levels in people with hypoparathyroidism, a small pilot study in the U.S. suggests. Because slower processing speeds can mean more time to complete day-to-day tasks, its researchers noted a perceived poorer The post Blood Levels of Calcium, Phosphate Appear to Affect Cognitive Skills appeared first on Hypoparathyroidism News.
