In June 2023, Tania Gelmetti, our in-house nutritionist and hypopara patient, undertook a research project for her Master’s degree on symptom management in people with hypoparathyroidism. As far as we know, this is the first study to look specifically at diet in hypoparathyroidism.
Tania surveyed our community and compared the frequency and severity of symptoms in people on calcium supplements and those who only used food sources of calcium. The results have been fascinating and clearly show the need for further research into this subject.

We are delighted to announce that Tania gained a distinction and her paper has been submitted for publication in the journal of Clinical Endocrinology journal. She is now working for the Zoe study as a fully fledged nutritionist as well as hypopara volunteer. Congratulations Tania and thank you for all your hard work.
