The Canadian Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Society, Inc. (CMENS) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to helping others with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 and assisting their family members. Familial Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 (FMEN1) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by overactivity of certain endocrine glands (e.g., pituitary, parathyroid gland, and pancreatic islet cells) and excessive production of certain hormones. A variety of symptoms and physical findings may result such as abnormally increased levels of calcium in the blood (hypercalcemia), generalized fatigue, weakness, muscle and/or bone pain, constipation and/or other digestive abnormalities, and/or additional symptoms. Established in 1996, the organization is committed to collecting and distributing current information on the disease; educating the medical community about FMEN1; and providing networking services that enable affected individuals to exchange information, resources, and support.
