Improving Lives Touched by Hypoparathyroidism 



The HypoPARAthyroidism Association is an non-profit patient organization working to improve lives touched by hypoparathyroidism, a rare medical disorder in which the parathyroid glands fail to produce sufficient amounts of the parathyroid hormone. We are directed by an unpaid volunteer Board of Directors and are overseen by a Medical Advisory Board.


Registration for the 9th International Conference on Hypoparathyroidism to be held June 4-6, 2015, in Minneapolis, MN  is now in full swing!  

For more details and to register see our Conference Info page. 


The Endo Society in Partnership with MED-IQ has released a new CME course for your doctor 

Entitled "Contemporary Updates and Expert Insights In Hypoparathyroidism"

Please let your doctor know about this course - there are more on the physician information page of this site as well.

The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) the publisher of Endocrine Practice has generously allowed us to post the paper  "Understanding the Burden of Illness Associated with Hypoparathyroidism Reported Among Patients in the PARADOX Study" on our site.  They are asking our members to print only one copy for their personal use (eg to help educate their doctor).  This study is one many of our members participated in to help the medical community better understand what it really means to have hypoparathyroidism.  To view the paper for free, you must log in to our site.   Here’s the link:  https://www.hypopara.org/webinars/paradox_results.html
