Will removal of calcium carbonate reduce the calcium levels in the blood?

Hi, I have to much calcium in my blood; my water (I live in AZ) has a high level of calcium in it. I am considering installing a water filtration system in my home. It will remove Calcium Bicarbonate but not Calcium Carbonate; will removing the bicarbonate help reduce the calcium levels in my blood.
