Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Cross-species summary: Hyperfunction of the parathyroid glands resulting in the overproduction of parathyroid hormone. It may be primary or secondary; primary hyperparathyroidism is caused by parathyroid adenoma, parathyroid hyperplasia, parathyroid carcinoma, and multiple endocrine neoplasia. It is associated with hypercalcemia and hypophosphatemia. ... Secondary hyperparathyroidism is caused by the chronic stimulation of the parathyroid glands in patients with chronic renal failure, rickets, and malabsorption syndromes. [NCIT:C48259]

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
