  • Calcium Deposits

    I was just wondering if constant use of this can lead to Calcium deposits on bones. Maybeif a persons calcium level in the blood is at higher lever to begin with. I have been getting pain in the muscle in my upper back area,but If I push on that bone it is actually sore. Someone mention to me about a calciumn deposit.Then I started thinking about the constant use of prerelief. I was just at my Drs. but it was bothering me then,I will be seeing her in 2 months again. I will mention this-JOJO

    Dear JOJO:

    There's no 'hard' answer to a question like this. Some people have problems from calcium and some don't, but it's for your doctor to judge, face to face.

    Prelief contributes about 65 mg calcium per tablet. A person using 12 tablets per day will get 780 mg. calcium, which is still 220 mg. under the USRDA and well under some new recommendations which range from 1200 to 1500 mg per day. Of course they get calcium from other sources as well. Nutritionists feel that up to 2500 mg per day can be consumed.

    We think it is unlikely that Prelief is causing the problems you describe.

      As you age you get calcium deposits in various part of the body. My lastest scan during surgery, no less. showed calcification in the pelvis area around the bladder. Interesting, isn't it?
