    does hyperpara. cause gastritis???

    For the past 7-8 years, I've been, somehow, calcium intolerant. I know, that is weird. Any time I've taken calcium supplements, even with a 1:1 ratio of magnesium, my stomach/intestines quit moving. I don't pass gas, and end up burping up a ton of "gas". I feel it doesn't move down and out, so it moves on up. So, I get a little by drinking some milk, but not enough. Cheese does the same bloating thing as supplements. I also get higher b/p, fast pulse, don't sleep, etc. when I do take in calcium. I hate the way it makes me feel-almost toxic. So, I had to start a prescr. vit D, 50,000 IU because of low levels, and HAD to concurrently up my calcium intake. I just drank Lactaid milk. During those two months, I felt AWFUL! The only new symptom was heartburn, which I've never had before. It has since gone away with out the vit. D/calcium regimen. Now, I've had a scope procedure to look at my stomach and the dr. found gastritis.

    So, I have always felt that I might go straight into hypercalcemia anytime I ingest calcium. I get all the symptoms. My labs in Jan. showed normal PTH and normal calcium. This was before treatment. Can elevated calcium levels cause gastritis? I know it can do something to your digestive tract, but I'm not sure if it's gastritis, or something else.

    hi sue, from what i know, calcium neutralizes stomach acid in the short run, but then you get a rebound effect where the stomach actually produces more acid to compensate. sort of like aspirin rebound headaches. so yes, i think this could cause gastritis. they say to take your calcium with food, do you? not sure if it matters what form of calcium you take, although i think carbonate causes the worst problem since it neutralizes the most acid, causing the most rebound.

    Thanks, Snowflake. I've tried MANY different calciums. Pills, powders mixed with liquid, everything. But you're right, calcium should be neutralizing the acid, so I don't know why it irritates my stomach....
