I need help. My sister in law has Scleroderma and had been anorexic most of her life.. Lately she has been hospitalized when her magnesium leveld drop. She feels it coming on, despite her taking the doctor prescribved magnesium tablets. She gets dehydrated and that seems to cause her problems. Esch time they hook her up to an iv with magnedium supplements. Is there anything she can do to prevent these outbreaks, some 8 times this year?
