Have Doctor Check Your Magnesium Level

If you have muscle spasms a lot and are diabetic, when your doctor sends you for lab work, be sure he tests your magnesium level as well as your vitamin B-12 level. I've been deficient in both, all because of my diabetes medicines deleting these valuable nutrients from my body. Low magnesium will cause muscle spasms, constipation, etc. Low Vit. B-12 will cause you to feel tired, draggy, no energy. If you are low in Vit.


B-12, receiving it in shot form is a GOOD thing. If your doctor suggests it, by all means have it.

Low magnesium levels or Vit. B-12 levels don't just strike diabetics, anyone can be be depleted in these minerals. I'd saw recently, on TV, Dr. Becker's homeopathic show, where the U.S. has more folks deficient in magnesium than in any other country.

Good Luck and God bless!

Please don't take magnesium without first consulting your doctor! You can really mess up your electrolytes and become seriously ill. It is a great drug when used as needed, but can have serious repercussions if misused.

I have found that magnesium does help constipation. I was taking 1000mg of calcium everyday. My doctor told me I needed 1500mg.


Just the extra 500mg. caused me to be constipated. I saw Dr. Oz on Oprah explaining about magnesium. I started taking it immediately and the constipation went away.

I am diabetic also and have had a problem with not having any magnesium. This definitely affects muscles and you have to remember that your heart is a muscle. I found out by going into the hospital with atrial fib about the importance of magnesium.
