Q:

How do I know if I need a calcium supplement?

A:

Your family physician can speak with you about the appropriate level of calcium for your age and gender. You will likely be asked about your diet to determine how much calcium you are getting from the food you eat. If your physician feels you should be getting more calcium, you may be asked to make some dietary changes, as well as perhaps take a calcium supplement.
