Thanks for your response. I have asked my doctor's office but am still waiting for official response. It
was in this same blood test that my glucose was high and I had to have additional testing which is where the
prediabetes came in. No mention was made of the calcium, I saw that when I picked up copies of the test.
Doing research I learned... that calcium is stored when not used and that too much Vitamin D can be toxic. A
lot of the stuff I took was fortified, I did not take them everyday but on days I did, it could be up to 2000
calcium and up to 600 Vitamin D. Since I received the results I have thrown out my Calcium supplements.
Could the fortified foods and drinks and multivitamin have made a built up also?

Hi, Thank you for showing faith in this forum again. If you are already taking a rich nutritious natural diet
then supplements may or may not be required. Excess of any thing is bad so I would advice you to consult a
nutritionist or dietician to get your daily intake of supplements evaluated and modify accordingly. Hope this

I do mean to be a bother but I spoke to my doctor who stated there is nothing to worry about but I asked for a
repeat of the test. Calculating my normal routine my calcium intake on a daily basis was anywhere from 2000
to 2900 a day. For the past week and a half I have not taken any supplements, vitamins and reduced milk
product signficantly to get my body to use any excess calcium and Vit D stored. I have been drinking a lot of
water also. Is 1 week and a half enough time to clear my system, can I retake the test on Monday?
Dear madam, Yes you can retake your test on Monday to reconfirm the results. Hope this helps.
