According to Health Day News, conditions did not improve for women taking calcium plus vitamin D supplements for joint pain even after several years. "Older women seeking a cure for swollen, painful joints likely will find that taking calcium and vitamin D supplements won't reduce the severity of their condition, a new study reveals.

Researchers analyzed data from more than 1,900 postmenopausal women in the United States who were randomly selected to receive either calcium carbonate with vitamin D3 daily or an inactive placebo." read more

Saddens me...We are told this what we should do and then we come to find out the main motivation is profit...Take this do that don't do this...the end-less "Blame-Game"...I research everything ask questions but still even after educating and advocating for yourself you want them to be honest and truth-ful and actually care show empathy.

I have a new NP because I felt like my former NP didn't seem at all empathetic and was quick to play the "Blame-Game" blaming me or others in the Clinic I go to for her mistakes.

We have to be our own Advocates and take care of ourselves...
