~ Green Med Info .. Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms and Diagnosis …
~ Magnesium deficiency is often misdiagnosed because it does not show up in blood tests – only 1% of the body’s magnesium is stored in the blood.
~ Most doctors and laboratories don’t even include magnesium status in routine blood tests.
~ Thus, most doctors don’t know when their patients are deficient in magnesium, even though studies show that the majority of Americans are deficient in magnesium.
