Hi there...foods which are rich in calcium are green leafy vegetables, okra, broccoli, green beans, almonds. Apart from this evening milk, cheese, yogurt and fish are also rich in calcium. Also she can take oral medications like tab.shelcal 500mg once daily after food, for additional calcium supplements. Which I am sure the doctor would have prescribed. Green leafy vegetables and raw fruits will also increase fibre content. Foods like seafood, vegetables, spices, salt also have high sodium content. If her sodium level is very low, the kindly consult a general physician for additional supplements like sodium bicarbonate tablets. Hope this helps you
