Calcium Suppliment

My 12 year old daughter cant have milk or milk products, due to bowel problems.
But shes lacking calcium badly, is there a suppliment that would work good for her that any one would recommend?
We have tried the lactaid, lactose stuff but doesnt work either.
any suggestions ??

Re: Calcium Suppliment

Caltrate+D would be a good place to start. If you get the one in the PINK bottle, it is lactose free.

They do have many different kinds, so make sure to get the pink bottle that is lactose free.

out of curiosity....can she have soy milk? silk makes a great chocolate soy and a very vanilla soy that is great for kids. it's fortified with nutrients to help take the place of milk. she could drink that along with the supplement.

I use a product called bio calth....I have severe food and chemical sensitivities, and this has been by far the best calcium I've ever tried, kind of expensive but to me worth every penny.

Calcium-fortified OJ is a good choice.

I too can not tolerate dairy friend had me try smoothies last week for the first and after the third one (day three) I felt bloated, cramped and had the "d" word.

I drink MM Calcium with Vitamin D.

Re: Calcium Suppliment

There is a inexpensive and easy to obtain pill that lactose intolerante people can take so they can eat dairy. Also you might want to try goat's milk and products made from goat's milk, it works sometimes for lactose intolerant people. Try introducing a slow but regular amount of dairy into her diet. Increase amounts little bit by little bit. Start with like little bits of yogart and work your way up to servings of milk. Some people can develop the enzyme need to digest lactose. Its worth a shot.
