Calcified placenta at 32 weeks???
Look into CALM magenesium suppliments http://naturalvitality.com/. Also you can google magnesium deficiency to find out why we tend to have WAY too much calcium in our bodies than we need and are actually deficient in MAG. I am not at all sure if this comes into play for your situation, but it is definitely something to look into.
Ugh, nerve wracking for sure. Did they put you on calcium supplements for a certain reason or was it something that you put yourself on? Did they discover this during a routine u/s (I'm just curious since I usually only hear about the calcification issue in post-date pregnancies).
I have to agree with the magnesium. It is fascinating how calcium and magnesium work together. They are like two sides of a coin and really need each other for your body to be able to properly process them.
The Two-to-One Ratio
The 2-to-1 calcium-to-magnesium ratio (2:1) was first suggested by the French magnesium researcher Jean Durlach as a high limit not to be exceeded, when he warned against excessive calcium relative to magnesium intakes; that is, one’s calcium intake from all sources including food, water and supplements should not exceed one’s total magnesium intake by more than 2 parts calcium to 1 part magnesium on a weight basis. 5
Thus, if one’s total magnesium intake per day is 300 mg, one’s total calcium intake for that day should not exceed 600 mg, according to Durlach. This would be a high level of calcium for the level of magnesium, not to be exceeded, according to this early and often-quoted recommendation. A lower calcium-to-magnesium ratio is thus safe, such as a one-to-one ratio or even less in some times of life or therapy.
It is important to note that this ratio is for weights of elemental calcium and elemental magnesium, not the weights of their compounds. It is also for all sources of calcium and magnesium intakes including food, water and supplements.
