Benefit from magnesium?
I have a 16yo child that fell ill at 13-1/2. At 20 months she was finally diagnosed with VCFS (22q11ds). A genetic syndrome second to Down’s. It is a deletion of a chromosome. She did not appear to have anything wrong than mild milestone delays and chronic ear infections and upper respiratory. Now they claim she is dealing with the mental health conditions associated with this syndrome. One of her diagnosis was Wilson’s but after a liver biopsy and consult with leading specialist she was deemed to be a possible ‘carrier’ of Wilson’s. Her ceruplasmin was low and copper was high at one point than low the remainder. She has always consistently had a low Vitamin D. These children can have hypoparathyroid issues or thyroid issues as well. Currently her TSH is 8.2 but her free T3/T4 were normal. She is on Lorazepam to hold off catatonia and is on an anti-psych med, Geodon. My question is if she would benefit from magnesium and if so what kind and amount? She is only on a supplement of Vitamin D3 of 2000ius. They are changing the anti-psych to Abilify in the next day or two. I know these meds are very powerful and am sure that they are causing havoc to her over all system. Thank you for your time.
