Flatulence from calcium supplements

I have tried every form of calcium supplements including liquid and powder to add to recipes and I find I have much gas and bloating. After having a bone density test and discussing it with the technician, she advised I discontinue taking it. She said she has come across some people who just find the discomfort too great, as do I. I try to get my calcium from dairy products but find I gain too much weight trying to get the full amount per day. Has anyone ever heard of this condition and/or have any solutions for me. Thanks.

http://whole9life.com/2012/02/what-about-calcium/ has a lot of good info about calcium. Also the Weston Price Foundation website has excellent information about Vitamin K2 and bone health.

There is quite a bit of research showing that calcium supplements aren't actually helpful and could be harmful. The final answer is that I worried a lot about that, since my mother has osteoporosis, but the research convinced me that I'm better off making sure I'm good on Vitamin K-2 instead, so the calcium I get goes to the right place.
