No, calcium is a hea: No, calcium is a health decision. Pseudogout is associated with increased deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate deposition in your cartilage, soft tissues, etc. If your body need calcium and you are not ingesting enough, your body will take it from your bones. Calcium suppleemts is not known to provoke pseudogout.
