Hypoparathyroidism (HypoPTH) is characterized by low or absent parathyroid hormone (PTH). It is mainly associated with a drastic suppression of bone turnover by around 80% (Rubin et al., 2008) and a substantial increase in bone mass in the range of 10–32% (Rubin et al., 2008; Abugassa et al., 1993).
