I am trying to learn as much as I can about this. My bloodwork is pointing to this

I also have "mild" Primary Hyperparathyroidism. There are other types of hyperparathyroidism , one being secondary hyperparathyroidism.

Once diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism the 1st thing that is done is more testing to determine if there is a 2ndary cause for hyperparathyroidism - one being low vit d..

Hyperparathyroidism is indicated when the parathyroids are overactive, producing too much parathyroid hormone
There is also a normocalcemic variety of hyperparathyroidism, where calcium levels stay in a somewhat normal range.
The blood tests most often used to diagnose Parathyroid disease include tests conducted simultaneously ( all at same blood draw ) for calcium, vitamin D, parathyroid hormone (PTH), and sometimes magnesium and phosphorus levels.

It would be a little more helpful to distinguish primary or secondary if your labs were included in post
