My first Mag RBC test was a 5.9 back in October of last year. I've been through a lot since then and expected a slight drop off but nothing severe. That's exactly what I got. I slipped to a 5.6 this time around. That's a drop of 5.1 percent. The "true" normal range is 5.0-7.0 with an optimal range of 6.0-7.0. If you consider a 5% allowance for variance due to lab error and natural fluctuations, my drop off was not significant. In any event, I am certainly not deficient but I am also certainly sub-optimal. It is extremely rare nowadays to see a Mag RBC above 7.0.
What to do about this? It's not a pressing concern but it's probably a good idea to raise my Mag dosage and drop the Cal/Mag ratio from 3:2 down closer to 1:1. Also, I may add back a bit of Mag chloride. I'll know better when I get the medical report. It is important to consider the RBC results, the Mag value on the hair test as well as the key Mag ratios (Ca/Mg and Na/Mg).
I expect to get the hair test results back in about 2 weeks and am a bit apprehensive about it. I am still vulnerable to injuries due to sore muscles. I am not afraid of a Cal/Mag imbalance because I know what to do about it. I would be alarmed to see a low a Na/K (adrenal fatigue) but I know what to do about that too. Thanks to the detox, I can take Limcomin and Vitamin C without fear of my system rejecting them. What I am most worried about is my oxidation ratios (Na/Mg and Cal/K). I HAD BETTER SEE A SIGNIFICANT DROP IN MY Na and K! Otherwise, there is no explanation as to why my system suddenly rejected the Thym-Adren and accepted the Endodren. Taking Endodren as a fast oxidizer will put me further out of whack and a breakdown is inevitable. Again, good workouts are a sign that I am moving in the right direction. I'm pretty confident that if I raced my last 5K course today, I'd be comfortably under 21 minutes. If I can improve my pace per mile by only 6 seconds per week, I will be back to 20-flat within 4 weeks.
