I've been concentrating on my diet more - was diagnosed hypo. in June 2006 and also as having hbp.
Good sources of calcium are orange juice (of course), baby lima beans, yogurt, and canalope just to mention a few. I'm firm believer in trying to get as much of these nutrients into our bodies through diet as we possibly can.
I was trying to do the pill/supplement route and got so tired of swallowing them and could also literally feel them trying to dissolve and make their way through my digestive tract. ick!
No matter what they claim - some of these supplements to not dissolve that easily for all of us. I've tried the dropping them in to water to see how fast they dissolve. I hate pills.
Using cinnamon to lower blood pressure and it really works but that's another board lol.
