Context: Impairment of muscle function and strength in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is rarely addressed although decreased muscle function may contribute to increased fracture risk in PHPT.Objective: We aimed to assess changes in muscle strength, muscle function, postural balance, quality of life (QoL), and well-being during treatment with vitamin D or placebo before and after parathyroidectomy (PTX) in PHPT patients.<p class="abs...

Introduction: In spite of the frequent encounter of ¬Ďasymptomatic¬í primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT), the patients often describe various relevant improvements postoperatively suggesting a subclinical biological effect of elevated PTH or hypercalcaemia.Materials and methods: To evaluate muscle function, postural stability, and quality of life (QoL) in untreated PHPT, we assessed maximal isometric muscle strength in upper and lower extremities,...
