Dear Dr. Cannell:
I am a 37 year-old woman who recently had successful surgery for hyperparathyroidism. I have galactorrhea (breast discharge) and pituitary hormone irregularities over the past 10 years. I also have worsened osteoporosis. I have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and simultaneously diagnosed with gluten, and other food (dairy, egg, soy, and nut) intolerance. I continue with 5,000 IU/day of vitamin D and a well-balanced diet. I have recently had lower leg pain that resolved with removing calcium supplements from my diet.
