Where Does Calcium Come From
We come from a religious background where treatment is based on faith and home cures. What can we use to treat high calcium levels?
Reality: No religion forbids you to have a broken bone set. All the major world faiths accept scientific medicine as one of heaven's gifts to humankind. Not all hypercalcemia is serious, but if you have a parathyroid adenoma as the cause of your high calcium and you opt not to be treated, you'll feel worse and worse until it kills you. For the sake of the people who love you, do the right thing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I heard that calcium carbonate tablets can help acid in the short term, but make it come back worse, is this true?
Not really : Using antacid will reduce acicidity in your stomach briefly but not change course of gastroesophageal reflux disease per se. If you have gerd then the symptom relief will be least relieved in degree and duration by antacids, more by type 2 histamine blockers e.g. Zantac/ranitidine, pepcid/famotidune; & best with proton pump inhibitors (ppi's) like nexium, prilosec/omeprazole, dexilant, prevacid. ...Read more

I just called my doctor to discuss hanging my medication for hypothyroidism caused by hashimoto. My calcium is 10.8 so my dr wants me to come in?
Goal is 'adequate': Getting an 'adequate' dose of calcium reduces risk of weak bones from osteomalacia. Not sure there is any benefit for taking extra/excessive amts of calcium. In fact, there is emerging evidence that taking high doses in pill form (might) cause increased calcium buildup in blood vessels (bad). Maximizing dietary sources is best. If need supplement, spread dose into 2-3 separate doses thru day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
