I recently read that magnesium can cause diarrhea.
Magnesium was recommended by my prior doctor due to having EXTREMELY painful leg cramps and seems to help. I also found out there's different types of magnesium. Currently I take Magnesium oxide.
Any suggestions on what blend and how much to take for leg cramps for a person with UC?
