Dear Hate Dairy
From what you say, I deduce that you don't like drinking milk or eating yoghurt, but that you do eat cheese and still often cook with milk. Consequently you are probably ingesting sufficient calcium from your diet and the calcium tablet you are taking. This type of intake (approx. 1000 mg per day of calcium) should not cause kidney stones. Taking very high doses of vit C supplements may cause kidney stones. Recent research also indicates that taking calcium supplements without additional vit D and vit K, may exacerbate atherosclerosis. It has, therefore, been suggested that calcium supplements should contain vit D and vit K, such as MenaCal.7. Exposing your skin to the sun for 20-30 min a day and eating plenty of green leafy vegetables will also provide vits D and K. Cooking does not affect the calcium content of milk. Cream is not a source of calcium.
I hope this helps
