Has anyone one on the site got genetic HYPOPARATHYROIDISM ?


I am a lady with an underactive thyroid but also suffering with Hypoparathyroidism. It is genetic in our case not surgery related, my son is also a sufferer.

I take calcitriol but am now worried I have liver damage due to my medication.

I would love to talk to someone else with the same as I. Jillymo

Hi I have surgical hypoparathyroidism and have been taking drugs for it for 36 years. I was initially prescribed calcitriol but have been taking alfacalcidol now for at least 15 years. I have never heard of any risk of liver damage. Please let me know what information you have
