Don’t throw out the calcium yet !! IT is probably not at all the cause of the Heberden’s node. Heberden’s nodes are outward manifestations of degenerative arthritis (also called osteoarthritis and “wear and tear”” arthritis). The node is a bone spur. Degenerative arthritis occurs commonly as we get older.
