Hypoparathyroidism (low blood levels of parathyroid hormone) is rare and often due to surgical removal of the parathyroid glands. High oral doses of the vitamin D analogs dihydrotachysterol (DHT), calcitriol, or ergocalciferol can assist in increasing serum calcium concentrations in people with hypoparathyroidism or pseudohypoparathyroidism.
