Parathyroidectomy Halts Kidney Function Decline in Patients with Hyperparathyroidism and Kidney Disease

In a retrospective study of patients with both primary hyperparathyroidism and renal disease, parathyroidectomy stopped the progression of kidney function decline. After parathyroidectomy, eGFR did not change in patients with eGFR <60 mL/min/1.73 m2, whereas it was significantly reduced in patients with higher eGFR. Presurgical kidney function was the most relevant predictor of kidney function change after parathyroidectomy in the 109-patient study. The results are published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
