I do not know if I am still deficient or not...but symptoms such as twitching, tremor, and weakness occur all the time if I am not taking it.
All I know is that in March on a 24 hour urine, I was losing lots of it along with potassium, and who knows what else since I can't find my test results. Also, serum levels are not always accurate in and of themselves since most magnesium is intracellular and in the bone and most doctors do not run the other tests to see. So, I am trying to find a doctor to help me figure out what I need and am also bein checked for adrenal problems or possibly a tumor. Thank you for reminding me about the potassium. I am supposed to see a new nephrologist this week, and I am hoping she can help me.
Thanks for taking the time to answer my post...Oh, and I also take the magnesium because it greatly helps my OCD and anxiety.
