In brief: Low diet intake.

Calcium supplements are recommended if the dietary intake of calcium is low.
Dairy products are the main source of calcium, particularly milk and yogurt. 8 ounces of milk or yogurt contain about 300 mg of calcium. 800-1000 mg of calcium is generally considered a nutritional requirement.
