Is vitamin D a calcium supplement?
My doctor didn't tell me much before prescribing me a Vitamin D 400IU pill to be taken one daily. She said it would not substitute intake on its own (obv) but whatever. I KNOW I don't take enough calcium, it wasn't enforced as a kid, I grew up HATING milk, blahblahblah.
But is vitamin D calcium, or does it help you absorb calcium?
Also, I kind of get stomach aches and problems like that (I was on a chewable one for awhile but it gave me issues in the bathroom and I was like "damnit screw this") and I read that some kinds of calcium you need to take on an empty stomach, some need stomach acid so you eat it with food, and I have no idea which to do because IT NEVER SAID
So plz help lol
