It's the calcium to phosphate ratio that matters. Do you have the data on phosphate consumption? In theory a person with very low grain or seed consumption, who eats fruit instead, would need far less calcium. Also, if they eat less meat they need less calcium. An important data point for any analysis is PTH. TSH and Prolactin would also be important.
