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."
