Is there a cure for hypercalcemia?

If hypercalcemia is the result of hyperparathyroidism, it can often be cured by treating the hyperparathyroidism. Surgery may be used to remove the malfunctioning parathyroid glands. Medication can help the parathyroid glands produce less parathyroid hormone. If you are at risk for hypercalcemia due to immobility, medication and preventative lifestyle measures can help you prevent or manage your hypercalcemia. If your hypercalcemia is the result of cancer or another condition, it may be more difficult to treat. In these cases, hypercalcemia treatment can only be as successful as the treatment for your underlying condition.
