Suggest treatment for elevated calcium level in kids?

My six year has been burning when going to the bathroom. After ruling out a uti they did a calcium test and found her levels to be mildly elevated. We are doing a 24 hr collection now but what does that mean? Everything online says this is a serious matter but my pedestrian says its not a matter to be concerned about.

Hi,
Thanks and welcome to healthcare magic.
If your baby is having burning urination and the UTI is ruled out you need not worry.
Give plenty of fluids orally to increase urination.
this may occur during high fever, extreme heat outside or any local injury or infection .
You may rule out the above conditions or treat if present.
Hope this reply is OK for you.
Please feel free to ask further queries if any.

I have been diagnosed with high calcium levels which my doctor feels is caused by hypoparathyroidism. I have no side affects at this time. After reading several articles on the internet, I am confused about treatment. Some say surgery is only cure, others are being treated with calcium and D3. My pth was 94 and calium is 10.9 I need more information on this condition to clarify what is happening to me.
