Farxiga has been out for ~ 1 year, and causing the kidneys to let more sugar out in the urine. Metformin is first choice because it typically lowers sugar levels more, costs much less, and causes fewer side effects in most people. If metformin isn't enough, Farxiga is one of many choices to add on. ...Read more

I am taking one 250 mg softgel of magnesium daily? I heard is good for patient with IBS like me. Is this is good or healthy?
Probably good: Magnesium deficiency is very common; it is most likely the most underdiagnosed electrolyte deficiency in medical practice.

Some patients with seizure disorders take up to 1500 mg mgox per day with benefit. For those with low mg there is better absorption of any form of mg. ...Read more
