Risks for nephrocalcinosis and decreased estimated glomerular filtration rate were found among children with hypoparathyroidism who were treated with calcitriol and calcium supplements, according to recent study findings published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

“Given that hypoparathyroidism is a chronic medical condition requiring long-term medical treatment, the presence of alterations in renal function in childhood could signify a risk for future health,” the researchers wrote.
