In primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism, the parathyroid glands produce too much PTH. “Primary” means that the hyperparathyroidism is not caused by any other condition. “Secondary” means that the hyperparathyroidism is caused by another condition, such as kidney disease. Both primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism can result in a loss of calcium in the bones, which can lead to bone pain, fractures, problems with the blood and heart vessels, kidney stones, mental illness and coma.
