there is treatment for hyperthyroidism with radioactive I-131 pills which can kill part or the whole thyroid gland to fix the thyroid problem.
this won't work for the hyperparathyroid hormone if your PTH levels are high and causing high calcium levels. you need surgery for hyperparathyroid hormone in your body.
how high is your PTH levels
how low is your TSH levels which would indicate hyperthyroidism?
