Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

A patient must meet all of the following criteria to be eligible for participation in the study:

  1. Patients of any age or gender, with a diagnosis of chronic hypoparathyroidism before enrollment.

    Chronic hypoparathyroidism, defined as one of the following:

    1. PTH value unequivocally low in the presence of low serum calcium for at least 6 months prior to enrollment
    2. Post surgery (thyroid, parathyroid, neck) occurrence of hypoparathyroidism which is currently treated with calcium/calcitriol supplements to maintain a low/normal calcium (if absence of PTH level) for at least 6 months prior to enrollment
    3. Post surgery (thyroid, parathyroid, neck), both serum PTH and calcium low for at least 6 months post surgery and continues to enrollment
    4. Non-surgical hypoparathyroidism requiring calcium/calcitriol supplements to maintain a low/normal calcium (if no PTH level available) for at least 6 months prior to enrollment
  2. Signed informed consent and medical records release by the patient or a legally acceptable representative

Exclusion Criteria:

A patient who meets any of the following criteria is not eligible for participation in the study:

1. Transient hypoparathyroidism within 6 months of enrollment
