Why do I need to take a calcium supplement?
Importance of calcium: Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. While it is predominantly found in your bones and teeth, 1% of it is found circulating in your bodily fluids. It is responsible for the rigid structure of bones and teeth and plays a critical role in muscle contraction/relaxation, blood clotting, hormone secretion, enzymatic reactions and nerve impulses.
Recommendation: 1500 mg calcium citrate/day (for all bariatric surgery patients)
Don’t always trust your bloodwork. Since you have a skeletal system FULL of calcium; when your blood level of calcium drops the body can pull calcium from the bones to bring that level back up. So therefore, listen to your surgeon and dietitian in regards to calcium supplementation needs.
