The Hypoparathyroidism Association is a self-help group that publishes a newsletter for the purpose of providing a support system for people with hypoparathyroidism and their families. Hypoparathyroidism is a condition characterized by abnormally decreased levels of calcium in the blood due to insufficient production of parathyroid hormones. Symptoms may include weakness; muscle cramps; abnormal sensations such as tingling, burning, and numbness (paresthesia) of the hands; excessive nervousness; uncontrollable cramping spasms of certain muscles; and/or other symptoms. The association seeks to inform healthcare professionals about this rare condition. The newsletter is intended for patients with hypoparathyroidism and their families. A typical issue includes general information about hypoparathyroidism, support group information, and personal essays and letters. Established in 1994, the group also seeks to inform healthcare professionals about this rare condition. The newsletter is intended for patients with hypoparathyroidism and their families.
