Medications for Secondary Hyperparathyroidism

What is Secondary Hyperparathyroidism: The parathyroids are four glands in the neck that produce parathyroid hormone to help control calcium metabolism.

Excessive production of this hormone caused by increased activity of these glands is known as hyperparathyroidism. When this occurs in response to low blood calcium caused by another condition, the condition is called secondary hyperparathyroidism.
