Hair tests and magnesium deficiency

Ask Larry:

Your Question: In reading about magnesium deficiency, it mentions autism, and also growth retardation. My nephew has both. He is 2 1/2, is autistic and not growing well.
One article mentioned testing children with hair samples to determine deficiencies since blood tests aren’t accurate. The article also connects autism with lack of B6.
One article from the University of Maryland Medical Center indicates that a child between ages 1-3 can be supplemented with 40-80mg of Magnesium daily, but it doesn’t mention in this article anything about B6.
