Treatment of Chronic Hypoparathyroidism
in Adults

This is the patient information leaflet which accompanies the ESE new clinical guidelines on the treatment of chronic hypoparathyroidism in adults.  

These guidelines, published in the European Journal of Endocrinology in August 2015 are the first to address this condition. They are aimed at improving the clinical treatment of patients with hypoparathyroidism as well as addressing the effect of the disorder during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Hypopara UK was honoured to work with the European Society of Endocrinology on the guideline and with other patient support groups to develop this leaflet which provides information on the condition and explains what to expect during clinical diagnosis and management.
