Even if you have calcium deposits, it's not suggested that you cut back on your calcium intake or adjust your diet to the point where you aren't getting the normal nutritional needs. They're caused by systemic or metabolic issues, not by the amount of calcium you take in daily. The only treatments are medication and/or surgery.

Excess of calcium in diet can help generating calcium deposits but it is not the main cause. The main cause is a hormone alteration called hyperparatiroidism. Other conditions can be excess of Vitamin D, kidney failure, hypertiroidism, thiazide diuretics and hereditary hipercalcemia. In this case I suggest a endocrine check.
