... Been advised by naturopath to change to Citracal 1 - 3 x day. She reorts it is better absorbed thus needing less number of tablets and reduces risk of ureteric calculi. Is this Citracal dose equiv to prev Caltrate dose with better absorption ?
Hypoparathyroid. On Rocaltrol, Ostelin Magnesium and Caltrate 1.8 g /day.Ver high Urinary Calcium.?
Added 17 Sep 2010:
Sorry...should read taking Caltrate 1.8 g mane, 1.2 g midi and 1.2 g nocte.
Urinary Calcium 2x high end of normal....thus obviously not absorbing all caltrate. Would change over to Citracal be more absorbed
Citracal and Caltrate are both calcium and there absorption/regulation would depend on your parathyroid hormones. If you have hormone deficiencies then it doesn't matter which form (Citracal or Caltrate) you take, you would still have high calcium levels in your urine, and the risks associated with it.
