Hi Joci and Steve,
Welcome to HealingWell!
Calcium is great for D; taking it on a regular basis can help control D. You can get more info from lnape's post (scroll down a bit, it is the long/detailed post): https://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=26&m=366149
Watching what you eat and keeping a food diary might help you as well. You can pinpoint foods that are giving you the most trouble, and then learn to stay away from them.
Again, welcome and keep posting!
