Low Potassium Low Magnesium with Muscle weakness

My son is currently experiencing low potassium and low magnesium levels to the point of hospitalization because he can't move. He takes 2400mg of mag. a day and 2rx of K+ per day but levels cannot maintain appropriate levels. Has been hospitalized 2x in last 6 months. Dr.'s can't figure it out. Why can't his body maintain levels? If any one has heard of this please respond back.
