Calcium is best absorbed in an acidic environment, so calcium citrate is the best absorbed supplemental form of calcium.

You can have yogurt. See the sugar content in type of yogurt which you eat. Sugar should be less. Do not eat chuna. It may cause urinary stones.

Calcium Supplements like Shelcal ( for elderly) and Calci max suspension(for children) contain Calcium carbonate as one of the main components.People say that one should avoid these supplements as the Calcium carbonate present in these can cause stones after a period of time. If this is true, kindly advise alternate calcium supplements for elderly as well as children which are totally safe.

These supplements are safe as long as they are given in prescribed doses for a specific duration for a specific deficiency. If there is a diagnosed deficiency of any nutrient, it has to be evaluated and then correction given. These are drugs and no one should use any drug for prolonged durations in unspecified doses.

You need to take a combination of bisphosphonates, vitamin d3, calcium and vitamin b12, as well as increase water & protein intake. In combination with regular walks, your t-scores will improve over time (2-3 years). Cheers.

Ideally have vitamin D with milk. Calcium should also be had after food to avoid acidity and for better absorption.
