I would strongly encourage you to also investigate "Parathyroid" disease, otherwise known as Primary Hyperparathyroidism (PHPT).

Elevated Calcium levels (Total Calcium / Ionized Calcium) & elevated intact PTH (Parathyroid Hormone). Oftentimes accompanied by low Vitamin OHD25 levels in a large percentage of those with parathyroid disease.

Having both thyroid and parathyroid disease, and other endocrine disorders can also occur together. The American Association of Endocrine Surgeons (AAES) website is an excellent source of information, as well as a source for contact information to the general surgeons who specialize in endocrine surgeries (i.e. parathyroid, thyroid, adrenal, pituitary, etc.).

A number of parathyroid support groups on Facebook can also be valuable resources for both patient education and support.

Best wishes to you.
