Murray Favus, director of University of Chicago Medicine's bone program, says that the body may process the calcium in supplements differently than calcium in foods.
A significant amount of calcium from supplements is excreted in the urine, which might set the stage for kidney stones (the majority of which contain calcium). Paradoxically, he says, "people who eat a low-calcium diet are much more likely to have kidney stones. He believes the best approach is to aim for a diet rich in calcium from foods, rather than supplements. In addition, two recent studies have found evidence that calcium supplements may increase heart attack risk. Favus says that the evidence for the link is not yet clear, but in the meantime, he's advising patients to hold off on supplements until the risks are sorted out.

Also in an e-mail, Murray Favus, MD, director of the bone program at the University of Chicago, said that the lack of a plan for assessing fracture risk in men is a major problem with the guidelines.
"It is time to recognize that men will continue to be neglected until reimbursement for bone-density scans is in place," he wrote, "and a first step is inclusion of management of men in the guideline."

In an accompanying editorial in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Murray J. Favus, MD, of the University of Chicago noted that the US saw a 17% increase in the lifetime prevalence of kidney stones among women between 1976-80 and 1988-94-coinciding with the widespread adoption of calcium supplements to prevent osteoporosis.
On the other hand, dietary calcium has actually been shown to fight stone formation. Women in the study with the highest dietary intake of calcium were 65% less prone to kidney stones than those with the lowest calcium consumption from the diet. Dr. Favus advised, "Optimal calcium intake can be achieved while minimizing kidney stone risk by the use of dietary calcium sources and the avoidance of calcium supplements."
