I don't know whether this is applicable or not, but here goes. I always get leg cramps if I don't have enough potassium. Range is 2500-4000 for good health. Since I track what I eat by gram, calories, carbs, etc., and that includes magnesium and and potassium, it's the rare day that I get over 2500 mlg of K, even when I'm eating lean filet. And 2500 is the BASE line. So I always take an additional potassium tablet; sometimes 2. Mine are 550 mlg each because I can't swallow the IP supplements, even broken up, and I can't take the calcium when we're supposed to because of hypothyroidism. It really works. Hope this helps.
