"Some factors that can contribute to getting a hypoparathyroidism diagnosis include:

Hypoparathyroidism can be treated with supplements of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D. Diet changes can also be made to reduce phosphorous and increase calcium intake. Besides this, symptoms can be treated with specific medications.
Hypoparathyroidism is sometimes hereditary, but can also occur in those who have had neck surgery or extensive radiation therapy to the face and neck. The condition is also common with those having autoimmune diseases.
Autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1 (APS1) is a disease which causes the immune system to attack the body's own parathyroid tissues, resulting in abnormally low levels of production of PTH.
