    I eat a lot of cheese, drink a lot of milk, and use calcium carbonate (oyster shell calcium).

    What is the cause of this problem and how to make sure it isn’t going to happen to me?

    I suspect it has to do with consuming acids. If you don’t consume enough, and consume a lot of alkali, then at some point, there could be a terrible buffering problem and apparently it affects the kidneys and is very serious.

    I drink a lot of OJ. And I drink ACV and magnesium carbonate, and oyster shell. Just want to make sure I don’t get sick this way.

    If you consume a lot of milk and cheese why go the extra mile with calcium supplements?
