I meant to ask one other question. Has anyone had success with improving uc symptoms with magnesium supplementation? I have read a number of articles that seem to say that we need a higher than the recommended dosage of magnesium and that this can help w/ remission of symptoms. But, also tied to magnesium deficiency were other things including restless leg syndrome and polycystic ovarian disease, and I have all them.
For the short while that I could tolerate the high dosage, the RLS was gone. I tried this (on my own-mind you- a little experiment) and I could not tolerate the high dosage.
So, I am wondering if anyone has had success, because I read that if your digestive sys. can't tol. the magnesium, injections are available and I would like to know more. I asked my family doctor and she did not know anything about it.
