Calcium Supplement and Vitamin D Supplement

Has anyone's doctor told them to quit taking their calcium? I am 74 years old and my doctor told me to quit taking my calcium and take 1,000 IU's of Vitamin D daily. I am a bit concerned about this. I was diagnosed with the onset of osteoporosis several years ago and my last bone density showed no osteoporosis. I am tall and thin. Thanks.

Re: Calcium Supplement and Vitamin D Supplement

that's probably good advice, from what I've read taking calcium supplements are now linked to a risk of heart attack.......
get your calcium from food, it's safer!
it you are worried about bones, look into strontium capsules
