Dear Ann Glanders: Week of August 1st, 2011
CAN DIFFERENT SUPPLEMENTAL BRANDS MAKE A DIFFERENCE…..
The past few days I have had those rare moments where I actually feel good and I say to myself, “oh, how I wish all my days could feel like this!” But I know better. I have dealt with the realization of having multiple autoimmune diseases, post stroke and post cancer. There are more bad days than good. I just can’t help but wonder if the change in my calcium brands could have made the difference. Could it be? I mean, that is the only change I have made in my list of medications in the past week.
I like couponing, but with my illnesses, I, of course, am not one of those hard core couponers. I’m just not able to walk that far, so going to different stores is out of the question, but I’m here to tell ya I can get some good deals at my local drug stores. I had some really good coupons for Citracel, which enabled me to get 2 bottles for less than ½ the price of one bottle of OsCal that I have been using for over 9 years now. So here I sit wondering…..could changing from one calcium supplement to another make such a difference.
Here’s hoping so. Since it is very important for all of us with thyroid diseases and conditions to take calcium, is there a brand that you favor? Have you found any that you didn’t like at all? Let’s see how many different types of calcium we are all taking.
This is Ann Glanders signing off and saying; please knows that I have been through so much, perhaps as much as you have been. Maybe, together, we can commiserate and learn from each other. I don’t want you to go through what you are alone. Throw some questions and comments my way at:
