This is Dr. David

calcium supplementation should be monitored by a doctor with blood levels to check calcium and parathyroid hormone which helps regulate blood calcium levels.

taking vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium

regular exercise also can help the bones stay strong as well.

let me know if you have questions.
