In June 2019 had an RBC Mg lab drawn that read 5.5 with a RR of 4.0 - 6.4 ng/dL. I had been taking Mg supp’s for 2 months at that point.
Had another RBC Mg (same lab) drawn this week and it read 5.4....I have been taking 400mg of Mg per day for nearly 1 year...obviously Im not absorbing it and wonder why???

Could it have something to do with my volatile intestine’s quick transit time? Its very hard to nail down what the cause of the bowel immediacy is because so much of my intake seems to do it but have been suspicious lately of the Mg being one. I didnt have that issue with the Mg when I began the program but think Im seeing it now. Any theories?

Rodney: unless you are having heart cvd issues, have you thought about ceasing Mg supp for 2-3 months to see if your  symptoms go away, then also retesting your Mg serum?

Rodney, at the time you had RBC Mg 5.5, were you taking the same product as you are now?

This is the dilemma with most magnesium products: limited absorption that means it typically takes 2 years to raise RBC magnesium, Rodney. 

You could always increase the dose, provided your gastrointestinal tract tolerates it.
