Hyperparathyroidism refers to an excess secretion of hormones by the parathyroid glands,
and this alters calcium metabolism.
Hyperparathyroidism: If the glands secrete too much hormone, as in hyperparathyroidism, the balance is disrupted: blood calcium rises. This condition of excessive calcium in the blood, called hypercalcemia, is what usually signals the doctor that something may be wrong with the parathyroid glands. 1
