My doc said I was low on calcium so I picked this up 1600mg , I only did it once a day (says do twice) for 5 days, totally diarrhea. Started a worse flare up! It’s suppose to make you constipated I thought.
What’s a low dose calcium to take please?

UC since '05, now in '15 Mayo Clinic say Chrons/colitis, U of M '17, ulcer in 30% of colon, of those ulcer 75% are ulcerated. No biologics work. Rethinking a game plan with doctor, whom I'm not impressed with.

It is my understanding that calcium citrate is easier to absorb than carbonate. I don't know if Nature's Bounty has more than one, but a quick look showed carbonate. There are some fillers there too that maybe you are reacting to?
