Re: magnesium or maganese for muscle loss?

Eleanor Kellon, VMD

You are describing a horse with muscle tension that is probably from shifting weight off his front feet. There are no minerals that help with muscle loss, although magnesium deficiency may worsen IR. If his mix doesn't have any its because his diet already has a sufficient amount. More is not better.  Reduced exercise always causes loss of muscle mass. So does PPID so rechecking ACTH a good idea.
