About Secondary Hyperparathyroidism

SHPT is a condition commonly associated with CKD in which the parathyroid glands secrete excessive amounts of PTH. Excess PTH secretion arises as a result of impaired kidneys that are neither able to produce sufficient quantities of vitamin D hormones to suppress excessive PTH secretion nor maintain a state of balance (homeostasis) between calcium and phosphorus in the body. Prolonged elevation of PTH causes excessive calcium to be released from bone into the blood, leading to softening of the bones (osteomalacia) and calcification of vascular tissues. SHPT affects 40-60% of patients with moderate CKD and approximately 90% of patients with severe CKD.
