Some age groups need MORE or LESS than 100% DV for calcium and vitamin D. Calcium requirements vary by age: More is needed as we grow older Need is highest during rapid growth of adolescence. 100% DV for calcium and Vitamin D are based on 1,000 mg calcium and 400 IU vitamin D.( DV –DAILY VALUES) 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA3
5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA4 Age Daily vitamin D needs in International Units (IU) 600 IU-800IU 200 IU 400 IU up to over 70
FDA uses “Percent Daily Value” (% DV) to describe amount of calcium needed by general U.S. population daily 100% DV for calcium = 1,000 mg Look for this label: “Nutrition Facts” on foods “Supplement Facts” on vitamin/mineral supplements 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA5
Broccoli, raw 1 cup = 9% DV Collards 1/2 cup = 20% DV Turnip greens, boiled 1/2 cup = 10% DV Orange juice and other calcium- fortified beverages 6 oz. = 20 to 30% DV, varies—check label Yogurt- 1 cup (8 oz.) = 30% DV Milk 1 cup = 30% DV Cheese 1½ oz. natural/2 oz. processed = 30% DV Milk pudding 1/2 cup = 15% DV Frozen yogurt, vanilla, soft serve ½ cup = 10% DV Ice cream, vanilla ½ cup = 8% DV Soy or rice milk, calcium-fortified 1 cup = varies—check label 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA6
5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA9 Calcium: The UL(upper limit for 1 year and older (including pregnant and lactating women) is 2,500 mg/day. It was not possible to establish an UL for infants under age 1. Vitamin D: No higher than 50 mcg (micrograms) or 2,000 IU for ages 1 and over; 25 mcg (1,000 IU) for 0 to 12 months The National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends limiting Vitamin D to 800 IU/day unless your doctor prescribes it.
An easy way to meet calcium needs is consuming 3 cups (8 oz.) each day of fat-free or low-fat* milk or equivalent milk products in combination with a healthy diet. equivalents: 8 oz. milk 1 cup yogurt 1-1/2 oz. natural..or 2 oz. processed..cheese 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA10
EXCESSIVE SODIUMOXALIC ACID Can increase urinary calcium excretion 2,300 mg daily Oxalic acid in foods such as spinach, chard, beet greens and chocolate Binds calcium in those foods Doesn’t seem to affect calcium in other foods, including chocolate milk These greens still good for you; may help calcium absorption in other ways 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA11
Baked beans 1 cup = 14% DV Salmon, canned, with edible bones 3 oz. = 18% DV Sardines, canned, in oil, with edible bones 3 oz. = 32% DV Soybeans, cooked 1 cup = 26% Tofu, firm, with calcium ½ cup = 20% DV; check label Cereal, calcium- fortified Serving size and amount of calcium varies—check label 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA12
Vitamin D is manufactured in your skin following direct exposure to sun. Amount varies with time of day,season, latitude and skin pigmentation. 10–15 minutes exposure of hands, arms and face 2–3 times/week may be sufficient (depending on skin sensitivity). Clothing, sunscreen, window glass and pollution reduce amount produced Main dietary sources of vitamin D are: Fortified milk (400 IU per quart) Some fortified cereals Cold saltwater fish (Example: salmon, halibut, herring, tuna, oysters and shrimp) Some calcium and vitamin/mineral supplements 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA13
There may be additional substances in foods that affect the body’s absorption and use of their calcium. So try to obtain Ca requirement from food. A balanced diet that promotes a healthy weight may provide additional benefits to protect against osteoporosis. At one time body can absorb 500 mg so take throught day. 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA14
Start with small portions of foods such as milk and gradually increase serving size Eat dairy foods in combination with a meal or solid foods. Try dairy foods other than milk: Many hard cheeses (cheddar, Swiss, Parmesan) have less lactose than milk Yogurt made with live, active bacteria It may be easier to digest lactose that is pre-digested or broken down to its simple sugar components (glucose and galactose): Lactose-hydrolyzed milk and dairy products Commercial lactase preparations 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA15
5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA16 Add powdered milk to food (1 tablespoon = 50 mg calcium) Make oatmeal and cream-type soups with milk instead of water Add milk to coffee IF YOU DON’T LIKE MILK? TAKE ALTERNATIVES

Using your hands as support, arch your back up, to a comfortable stretch. Keep your shoulders relaxed back and down without overstretching your lower back. Only come as high up as is comfortable. 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA20
Half Wheel Pose – On your back, grab your ankles and draw your heels to the buttocks, with the heels about 18 inches apart. Tighten your buttock muscles, raise your entire torso up off the ground, slowly as if massaging each part of your back, and arch your spine, as if pressing your navel point to the sky. Hold this position for up to 3 minutes, or move the body in synchronization with your breath, inhaling as you stretch up and exhaling as you relax your back down. This exercise helps to strengthen your lower back, and relieve tension in the ovaries. 5/10/2015Dr.MANINDERAHUJA21
