COVID-19

Concerning COVID-19 and HypoPARAthyroidism

After reaching out to some of our medical advisory board, this the consensus from Drs. Shoback, Levine, and Mannstadt:

We do not think that there are any special concerns; certainly, any illness brings additional challenges to the management of hypoparathyroidism, and we think that all patients will have to work closely with their own physicians and care providers to make certain that their medication needs continue to be met. Of course, it is important to note that in the unlikely event that a patient should require glucocorticoid steroids, their physicians must monitor serum levels of calcium and phosphorus more closely.  Use common sense and be safe.  

Take care of yourself and have sufficient medications on hand should there be a problem getting them. 
Stay Safe!
