Have you done a dietary log yet. We had to do one the last time we saw Dr. Wong and it turns out our boys get enough calcium from the food they eat. Too much calcium can cause kidney stones. We give them liquid vitamin D3 from

I have 2 boys with dmd . Ihave both of them on oscal 2 am and 2 pm  , their bones were weakened from prednisone but the calcium has actually made their bones denser. My oldest had suffered from fractures from falling, but has since we started Oscal. I think it is 500mg calcium w/ 400IU  D. (might be other way around). Good Luck and God bless our children ....please.

I would run this by a nutritionist.  There are some things in the adult vitamins that ARE too high for any kid. 

My personal favorites that were approved by my son's nutritionist:

Nordic Naturals Omega-3 6 9 D Junior™ Lemon -- 90 Softgels

Nature's Plus Animal Parade® VitaGels Natural Cherry -- 90 Softgels

New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care® -- 120 Tablets

Protandim - great for muscle recovery and reduction of muscle crams. Email fellow DMD mom, Kimberly Procko <> for additional details.  Her proceeds benefit CureDuchenne - 5% - 9% of all product sales go to fund Duchenne research through Cure Duchenne.

JuicePlus (all DMD families can buy this from me with all proceeds donating to PPMD.  I do not keep a dime of the share I receive.  For each paying adult, one child gets a free supply for up to 3 years as long as the adult continues for that entire time. Catch is you get to fill out a quarterly survey - that's it.)  This has boosted our immune system's ability to fight off colds.  We are not cold-free but the colds are very infrequent now and Connor has managed to avoid some of the big, bad cooties that come through public schools.
