Hello dear, If your son has calcium defficincy then you should give him Calcium supplements like the one your doctor gave to you. Continue with these and also give him milk as it is a natural source of calcium.

Thanks.

Hello Doctor, Morning. My son is 5 years old now. I have two questions. I have been giving him calcimax syrup not on a regular basis. His milk consumption is very poor as he experiences discomfort on drinking it. He is Ok with curds/yogurt but does not like cheese a lot. I need a good calcium supplement for him. second question - his teeth enamel has worn off. the front teeth are in bad shape and I see enamel loss on other teeth as well. is this due to calcium defeciency?
