    is calcium my enemy now??

    I take calcium supplements normally and am wondering if they've been the cause of my sediment in my SP. I didn't take them for over a month now but still have had problems-how long before this supplement would be out of my system?

    ..and I read another post that mentioned calcium leaching out of bones that were unused due to SCI. I'm 18 yrs. post-injury.

    can sediment/stones be caused by either of these factors?

    How much calcium are you taking? Are you taking it with vitamin D?

    There is little evidence that calcium supplementation helps with osteoporosis in people with SCI/D, including women after menopause.

    There is also no good evidence that a reasonable amount of calcium supplementation causes stones in people with SCI/D...just don't overdo it.

    I take 700 mg. of calcium daily, w/1,000 IU of d3. do you think this would cause a problem?
