Not sure how to use the forum so have done a new post to update you on what my cons said regarding taking magnesium. We went through all the recent admissions and current medication then we got onto where to go next. I raised the issue of magnesium always helping me and so got talking about taking a regular dose of that.
Anyway the outcome was that he thinks it is worth taking magnesium daily and has run a blood test to check my levels. The interesting part was he thinks that my calcium and vitamin D might be low also and this can be linked very slightly with asthmatics. He is testing these also, has anyone heard of this?
