    Thought this was interesting....it's only a small study, but good to see that objective abnormalities are being found and discussed.
    I definitely feel better when I remember to take my magnesium, and notice pretty quickly when I need some.

    Interesting, sounds like it could be a possible marker. Very unlikely it's the only one though...

    My RBC magnesium is fine, but I have Mg supplements are kryptonite for me :wide-eyed:
    I try to keep my levels up with a diet that is relatively high in Mg, lots of green veggies, quinoa etc...

    You have to create an account to access this. Anyone seen the abstract or possibly the complete paper? If we have more descriptors, possibly looking up on PubMed.

    Thanks.
