I am a diabetic and I was doing well on oral meds until a few years ago. I also have a hx of total just for a dx of poly cystic ovarian syndrome as well as a thyroidectomy for multinodular thyroid which presented with very rapid sx. I have been taking meds since that time. In the last 2 years I started having trouble regulating my glucose which was rising rapidly, I became severely anemic and was dx with iron absorption deficiency which has required IV iron on a yearly basis, fibromyalgia , RLS,…
51 years ago I at UTMB Galveston I picked as a topic Magnesium metabolism.. The big problem then was an accurate way to measure it.Not manypeople have ever seen myoclonus multiplex but you see it in burn patients and in a lot of DTs. In general mg parallels K except in burn patients. There you pray for good kidneys. If you just hit a muscle wit th apercussion hammer you can see the muscle contract and you can see it contract. I many articles even theou don’t think I foundgh my night job w…
@Richard Sherwill Natural medicines do not yield a profit or are not patentable. That is the main reason natural ingredients are not tested. There’s little to no funding for it. Even if the test results were to turn out positive, and beneficial along with little to no side effects, no one company could patent and exclusively sell it to the public. Therefore, no pharma company wishes to invest in funding the tests/approval process for it. Now if magnesium were to become popular, THEN big pharma …
George, any thought on measuring RBC magnesium level as we do RBC folate???
Eniva has a liquid Mg that achieves close to 100% absorption and is in the cells working as soon as 5 minutes. When I have my pre-atrial contractions ( I wrestled in College and that high intensity workouts can lead to this problem – free radical production.) an ounce of Eniva’s Mg and within 5 minutes my heart is beating normally . Before Eniva the only thing that would stop them was to rest and take a nap.This is something I had to do after almost every 5k and 10k race I ran after college.
@Dr. mohamed hakim Basically, you have inorganic minerals like mag oxide, etc. which don’t absorb well and cause diarrhea, and in fact are the basis of one class of laxatives for this very reason. The other type are the fully reacted chelated minerals that are bound to an amino acid. These latter are the best as they are the most absorbable and cause the least amount of digestive problems. Mag glycinate is a particularly good form as the glycine amino acid molecule is relatively light weight, so…
Sounds good enough for me!
@S L Nothing more reassuring than seeing abrupt PVCs in an o/w healthy patient in the middle of an operation that disappear with 1-2 grams of MgSO4. Like magic. All of the time. http://www.consumerlab.com is a good resource with rankings of supplements like magnesium.
I’m a NP who use to suffer from leg cramps. I also suffer from migraines and through trial and error I have been able to find my migraine triggers, although there are some I’m still exploring. I started taking daily magnesium about 6-9 mo ago and my leg cramps are few and far between, almost non-existant except for my running days, but that’s nothing compared to what I use to have. What I didn’t know, was that the supplemental magnesium had a positive affect on my migraines. I now get 1-2/mon…
Thank you Dr. Lindbergh! Finally! An article clearly written and understandable with excellent content we can all put into practice.
