Will apple cider vinegar help in flushing excess calcium in blood?
User rating for this question
Hello, I think I have been having symptoms of excessive calcium. I have interstitial cystitis and Prelief is recommended to reduce the acid in food. It says it is safe to take with every meal, snack, and beverage, so I have been taking about 15 pills a day (2-3 is a dose with 1 pill likely being 130 mg of calcium glycerophosphate and it has magnesium stearate). I have been having many of the symptoms of too much calcium: nausea, abdominal pain upper right), fatigue, thirst, pain/nausea after eating, etc. I had an ultrasound and my liver, pancreas, and gallbladder are all fine. I stopped taking the supplement yesterday as I wondered if this was the cause. I have been having mildly elevated liver enzymes. I am female, Caucasian, and 31 years old. If this is the what is going on with me how do I flush out the excess calcium and how long will it take? Will apple cider vinegar help flush it out? Also, I have been feeling better and would like to have alcohol for the Super Bowl (beer), is it advisable?
