Thank you for you question.

My calculation also tells me that you need 540 mg as well, so I agree with you on this.

I would recommend calling your doctor and letting him know, if possible, and asking him if he has put something else in the calculation that is causing the difference.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have. The only way I am credited here by the website and the money that you have deposited is released is when you rate me.
Therefore, I would appreciate a rating when you are done asking.
Kindest regards
