These stories cover all types of hypoparathyroidism - post surgical, genetic, autoimmune and idiopathic.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding with hypoparathyroidism
The first ever accounts collected from women with hypoparathyroidism about their pregnancy and breast feeding experiences.
Baby Vincent was 6 weeks old when he was found to have a genetic form of hypoparathyroidism caused by a calcium receptor mutation of which there are over 300 types. Vincent's type is the second only reported case in the world.
