     I am taking 2 capsules of Caltrate a day, I have osteoporosis and on prednisone.  When I saw my GI Doctor yesterday he said my calcium level was high.....hmmmm.  I know calcium levels in the bones and blood are different, but now I am afraid of developing kidney stones, don't need that at the moment.  He said to continue with the two and he will have it checked again in a month.
