      Hi all,

      I have a question regarding balance of Calcium and Magnesium.

      15 years ago I almost stopped eating dairy products, replaced them with soja or rice products, and I realize that I didn't consume enough calcium for years, also when I recently did a vit D test I discovered way too low levels, so I've been doing some calculators online to see if my calcium levels are actually ok. I do consume some dairy products again now, but not easy to understand, seems I need 1000mg each day, which I'm not having right now.

      May there be a link between tinnitus and bad balance of Calcium / Magnesium / Zinc or other trace minerals?

      I'd like to take more calcium (I already take some magnesium from time to time but for some reason the magnesium while relaxing give me bad sleep apneas at night), but am also worried if this can make my tinnitus worse, what would you suggest?

      thanks!

      Hello @hans01,

      I know nothing about Magnesium and its effects on tinnitus, nor about Calcium's effects, but as someone who is lactose intolerant (so I cannot consume dairy) I can suggest if you want to reduce your dairy intake that you try Calcium citrate. There are two main types of calcium supplements, Calcium citrate and Calcium carbonate. The former is a little more expensive, but is absorbed more easily into the body.

      Thanks Kolisar, I was lactose intolerant, still do especially with milk, but seems I can again consume cottage cheese without any issues, probably due to my healthier lifestyle eating tons of vegetables and fruits each day. I'll check out the calcium citrate, it's a little bit confusing to see how much calcium you need each day, some say 1000mg, others naturopathes say less is better.

      I have problems from casein in milk, so I switched to goat milk, and that works for me.
