Okay so I am looking for other calcium options and found one I wanted to try but it doesn't say carbonate or citrate it's tricalcium phosphate.  Anyone know if this is ok for RNYers?  I know not to do citrate.

Actually citrate is fine.  Carbonate is the one you're thinking of not to do.  No, tricalcium phosphate is not good either.  Not absorbed well at all.

Ones we can absorb are:
calcium citrate
calcium lactate
calcium gluconate.

Thanks Kelly I had it backwards obviously.  I am glad I have somewhere to post these things.
