Dear Certified Diabetes Educator,
My name is Linda. My doctor told me that there is recent data suggesting that diabetes and its complications can possibly hurt my bone health. She recommended that I get enough calcium and vitamin D. Are there specific recommendations for the amounts I should get? I also see on milk containers and some yogurts that they contain calcium and added vitamin D. The amounts on the labels are in percent daily values based on a 2000 calorie diet. How do I make sense of all of this?
