In brief: Yes, a few options

Sorry to hear- that is a lot of pills.
Take calcium citrate with your meals since acid will increase absorption. Discuss with your endocrinologist whether low dose Chlorthalidone (to lower urinary calcium loss, so maybe u can cut down # of calcium pills- very cheap), or Forteo (injected, synthetic parathyroid hormone, but very expensive). Either way, switching regimen req close calcium monitoring.
