Pseudohypoparathyroidism is a phenomenon characterized by the body’s inability to respond to the parathyroid hormone. The parathyroid hormone plays an important role in controlling Vitamin D, phosphorus and calcium in the bones and in the blood stream. Pseudohypoparathyroidism is a genetic disorder that leads to a rise in the phosphate levels in the blood. Blood calcium levels also increase as a result of Pseudohypoparathyroidism. The three types of Pseudohypoparathyroidism are as follows: Type 1a, which is passed on from the parents in an autosomal dominant manner; Type 1b, which leads to a resistance of the parathyroid hormone in the kidneys; and Type II, the characteristics of which differ from Type 1a and 1b.
