My doctor said to cut down on calcium to stop creating stones in my kidney. Does anyone know what to do in the future to prevent osteoporosis????

I am no doctor but I thought that calcium helped not getting kidney stones? But your doctor told you calcuim was creating stones in your kidneys-go figure?? Were you getting to much calcium and that was the problem? If so, what were you eating to give you so much calcium? I myself dont get enough calcium, so I need to know how to get more in my life (besides taking pills).

Here are a few articles about osteoporosis & kidney stones. The who-what-how to avoid-treatments-when to call a doctor
