Hi HeatherI have U.C & have been taking calcium supplements (caltrate plus, purple bottle) since September. Just switched to Osteocare which has 800mg calcium & other minerals. My regular multivitamin has 20mg calcium. The reson I'm taking this is as I did have D. a lot at first & also I don't eat any dairy, very little soya milk & probably only get calcium from fish such as salmon, sardines, etc & some green veg.Now, a friend of mine put me in touch with a nutritionist who says I'm having far too much calcium & even tho' I'm on steroids for 10 weeks which deplete this, I don't need the Osteocare. He says that it's causing toxicity in my cells & that I probably have enough already. Can you shed any light on this? Any ideas or info' would beuseful.Many thanks for your time.
