Hyperparathyroidism occurs when the parathyroid glands produce too much parathyroid hormone, which can cause symptoms such as bone pain or tenderness, fragile bones, depression, forgetfulness, fatigue, frequent or excess urination, and kidney stones. The condition often is diagnosed before symptoms appear, and in most cases it can be treated successfully.In this segment, Dr. Herbert Chen discusses Hyperparathyroidism and how The UAB Medicine Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism is consistently ranked among the top programs of its kind in the nation.
