MEDICAL QUESTION. Can anyone help? If 3 parathyroid glands are taken out, can they be put back? I mean, are they replaceable or can there be a transplant?

@brazukinhaa Hello. I would Say.. The parathyroid glands in the throat make a hormone (PTH), which regulates the amounts of calcium, which is not a simple product or part to get replaced because, Function : When calcium levels in the blood are too low, the parathyroid glands release extra PTH, which leeches calcium from the bones and stimulates calcium reabsorption in the kidney. On the other hand, if the level of calcium in the blood is too high, the glands drop hormone production. Problems can occur if the parathyroids are overactive or underactive. Suggestion: It is rare to have all four parathyroid glands diseased. However, if that is the case, treatment options would include removing 3 ½ parathyroid glands with ½ parathyroid gland left intact or removing all four parathyroid glands and transplanting part of a parathyroid gland in the neck.

@joshkoikkara Thanks, but I was more asking to get the poster to think about it. Interesting article though.
