How do you know you have gas? How much milk are you consuming at once?You should probably have your concern about osteoporosis evaluated by a doctor. Simply taking calcium tablets won't stop it!
I am not a doctor, but utilize sources of information not readily available to the public. Some of this information may contradict what you think you know and some of it may sound harsh, but the information is what it is, and you got it here for free. I am just a messenger. Always consult a real doctor.

I experience excess gas if I eat several soy products in a single day. For instance if I eat a soy-based veggie burger and later a couple pieces of soy cheese or if I gulp down half a pint of tofutti (fake ice cream), then I will have a problem with gassiness. Personally, I try to limit my intake of soy products.I am also lactose intolerant, and I don't drink soy milk for the above reasons, but instead I drink vitamin fortified rice milk. My favorite brand is Rice Dream. You have to pay attention to the labels on rice milk because some varieties are fortified with calcium and vitamins but some vareites are not fortifed.I really don't know what I'd do without rice milk. I drink it everyday. Posted Image

I think everyone's different. Give soy a try on a good day and make sure that everything else you eat isn't problematic for you. Soy works well for me. There is also a liquid calcium supplements that is more easily absorbed and may not cause the problems you have with tablets. I get mine from a health food store. Good luck.

I tried soy milk products and they seem to give me the same problems as dairy. But rice milk doesn't give me any trouble at all. I am 47 and have had to avoid dairy for over 30 years. I also couldn't take calcium because it constipated me and gave me headaches. I have muscle aches and pains and was feeling fragile because of no calcium intake. I ate tons of broccoli but it wasn't enough to give my body what it needed for calcium. Then my husband talked me into trying coral calcium. I hate trying vitamins because almost all of them make me sick in some way and irritate my UC or give me headaches. But i tried it. NO HEADACHE AND NO TUMMY TROUBLE! I have been taking it for almost 4 months and i can't tell you how much better i feel! My muscles don't ache, my back doesn't hurt, my restless leg syndrom is gone. The bleeding in my rectum is gone almost completely! My finger nails are strong again, they were so thin they hurt for a long time. Now, there are lots of kinds of coral calcium on the market. The real cheap kinds have lead and arsnic in them. The kind i found is reasonalby priced from an internet health food store, forgot the name, but it's half price. I was paying 27.00 a bottle from our local health food store. I'ts only 16.00 from this place. Anyway, the kind I am taking is called Trace minerals Research. Box 429, Roy, Utah. 84067. Phone is 801-731-6051. They will probably tell you to call a store, but anyway, It's called Coral Calcium from Okinawa Japan. 1145 mg with vitamin D and pure trace minerals. 60 in a bottle. Try it, I feel so much better! Now if only they could find a cure for my UC, i would be great!! Posted Image

I agree with Cindy, everyone is different. Me personally... I'm lactose intolerant but can drink soy milk. I was so sad that I couldn't order my vanilla lattes anymore but then I discovered soy! If I drink TOO much soy though I get constipated so maybe only 2-3 times a week do I get a latte.

Check out calcium fortified rice milk, I can't remember the name but out local grocery store has it. I like the taste of vanilla Rice Dream, but mine is not calcium fortified so I take suppl., too much soy milk makes me bloated too but not as bad as skim milk, so luckily I can tolerate one cup a day.

Hi,It seems that I agree with many that have replied, I cannot tolerate any dairy products and so I switched to soy products, (soy drink, tofu and tofu desserts).Then I found that I started to have problems with soy also and that was because of the amounts. I can handle about a half a cup of soy milk a day but try to spread out my soy products to alterate days. Rice milk is good - Rice dream vanilla flavour is delicious and tolerable. So I alternate between rice milk and soy milk.
