Parathyroid Hormone

A polypeptide hormone (84 amino acid residues) secreted by the PARATHYROID GLANDS which performs the essential role of maintaining intracellular CALCIUM levels in the body. Parathyroid hormone increases intracellular calcium by promoting the release of CALCIUM from BONE, increases the intestinal absorption of calcium, increases the renal tubular reabsorption of calcium, and increases the renal excretion of phosphates. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
10585
Concept ID:
C0030520
Amino Acid, Peptide, or Protein; Hormone; Pharmacologic Substance
2.

Hyperparathyroidism

A condition of abnormally elevated output of PARATHYROID HORMONE (or PTH) triggering responses that increase blood CALCIUM. It is characterized by HYPERCALCEMIA and BONE RESORPTION, eventually leading to bone diseases. PRIMARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is caused by parathyroid HYPERPLASIA or PARATHYROID NEOPLASMS. SECONDARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is increased PTH secretion in response to HYPOCALCEMIA, usually caused by chronic KIDNEY DISEASES. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
6967
Concept ID:
C0020502
Disease or Syndrome
3.

Hyperaldosteronism

Overproduction of the mineralocorticoid aldosterone by the adrenal cortex. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
6960
Concept ID:
C0020428
Disease or Syndrome
4.

Hyperparathyroidism

Excessive production of parathyroid hormone (PTH) by the parathyroid glands. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
504623
Concept ID:
CN000789
Finding
5.

Severe

Having a high degree of severity. For quantitative traits, a deviation of between four and five standard deviations from the appropriate population mean. [from HPO]
