Time To Drink Calcium While Fasting?
Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask. Right now I am 22 weeks pregnant and given calcium given a dose once a day and taken in the morning. When is the best time to drink calcium and how long is the lag time from drinking milk? Can you drink it at night before going to bed? Padaha previously taken in the morning Thank you
Hello Sitta, thank you for asking.
Calcium supplements are often given to pregnant women. Calcium is expected to help the growth and development of fetal bones and joints, and maintain calcium levels in the mother's blood. Actually, the best schedule is taken at the same time every day. This is to ensure you do not miss drinking calcium every day.
Milk may indeed interfere with the absorption of calcium supplements. Leave a gap of at least 1-2 hours between drinking milk and calcium. You can separate your milk and calcium drinking schedule. For example, calcium is taken at dawn, milk is taken when breaking. Or vice versa. Set a time that is most comfortable for you, and work at the same time every day so as not to miss. If you have doubts, consult this with your obstetrician.
Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
