A 39-year-old female asked:
If hypocalcemia is corrected, why do I have to take Tums (calcium carbonate) and rocalcitriol for the rest of my life?

Dr. Jack Rubin answered

Tums (calcium carbonate) and Vit D: Perhaps your calcium (c) level is normal due to the action of rocalcitriol allowing your intestine to transport the calcium in it into your blood stream, normalizing your c. Ask the doctor who prescribed the roaclcitriol to you for advice about stopping it.
