Multiple Measures of Magnesium Status Are Comparable in Mild Asthma and Control Subjects
TLDR
Total serum Mg closely reflected ionized Mg and offers a useful clinical diagnostic monitor and was similar in asthma and controls, and was not correlated to lung function.
Update on the assessment of magnesium status.

TLDR
The development of new and non invasive techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) may provide valuable tools for routinely analysing ionized Mg in tissues and the recent discovery of Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin channels offers new possibilities for the sensitive and rapid evaluation of Mg status in humans.
The complex relationship between magnesium and serum parathyroid hormone: a study in patients with chronic intestinal failure.
TLDR
Muscle free Mg2+ and serum total Mg displayed an opposite correlation versus serum PTH, showing that the intracellular free form possesses a different functional metabolic meaning in the regulation of PTH secretion.
Intravenous Magnesium Sulfate With and Without EDTA as a Magnesium Load Test—Is Magnesium Deficiency Widespread?
TLDR
The objective of this study was to determine if people are indeed magnesium deficient or if the apparent magnesium deficiency is due to the composition of the infuse used in the load test.
ROLE OF MAGNESIUM LOADING TEST IN DETECTING HYPOMAGNESEMIA IN CRITICALLY ILLPATIENTS
TLDR
Mg depletion is highly prevalent in ICU patients according to MLT and MLT is superior to serum Mg in determining actual Mg status in this group, therefore it is suggested that MLT, and not serum MG, should be carried out in patients when Mg deficiency is suspected.
Indication of intracellular magnesium deficiency in lactating dairy cows revealed by magnesium loading and renal fractional excretion.
TLDR
Nine non-pregnant, lactating dairy cows were used to study plasma and urinary magnesium concentrations and a decrease of the FE(Mg), during and after an intravenous Mg load was observed showing that part of the infused Mg is used to replenish intracellular Mg pools.
Effect of Oral Magnesium Supplementation on Measures of Airway Resistance and Subjective Assessment of Asthma Control and Quality of Life in Men and Women with Mild to Moderate Asthma: A Randomized Placebo Controlled Trial
TLDR
Children and adults with mild to moderate asthma who received oral Mg supplements showed improvement in objective measures of bronchial reactivity to methacholine and PEFR and in subjective measures of asthma control and quality of life.
Oral Magnesium Load Test in Patients With Migraine
TLDR
The objective is to determine whether migraineurs may have a systemic deficiency of magnesium and to establish a treatment strategy to correct this deficiency.
Validation of diagnostic tests for determination of magnesium status in horses with reduced magnesium intake.
TLDR
The 24-hour EMg was the most sensitive indicator of reduced Mg intake in horses, and spot sample FCMg can be conveniently used to identify horses consuming a diet deficient in Mg.

How to diagnose magnesium deficiency in outpatients
TLDR
It is shown that the short-term version of the magnesium loading test can be easily applied in outpatients and may be helpful to detect magnesium defiency.

TLDR
A better understanding of magnesium transport and of factors controlling magnesium metabolism is needed to elucidate the role of magnesium in disease processes.
The magnesium loading test: reference values in healthy subjects.
TLDR
The 8 h magnesium loading test with 24 h urine sampling seems to be fairly reproducible, is adequate for clinical use, but the normal range is wide.
Evaluation of body magnesium stores.
TLDR
It would appear from these results that bone and extracellular fluid magnesium are the major magnesium pools in man increased during magnesium excess and decreased during magnesium depletion.
Magnesium deficiency diagnosed by an intravenous loading test.
TLDR
The use of a magnesium loading test was evaluated to diagnose magnesium deficiency in 661 hospitalized patients with medical conditions assumed to interfere with magnesium uptake and excretion, and among the alcoholics negatively correlated to serum magnesium.
The relation between extra- and intracellular electrolytes in patients with hypokalemia and/or diuretic treatment.
The relation between extra- and intracellular electrolytes has been studied by means of percutaneous muscle biopsies in 107 patients with hypokalemia and/or treatment with diuretics. No relation was
Magnesium metabolism in healthy subjects.
TLDR
The fractional, gastrointestinal absorption of magnesium, assessed by a newly developed technique using the radionuclide 28Mg, compared favourably with that in earlier balance and tracer studies.
Magnesium deficiency in patients with ischemic heart disease with and without acute myocardial infarction uncovered by an intravenous loading test.
TLDR
Patients with ischemic heart disease may be severely magnesium deficient; that long-term diuretic treatment contributes to this deficiency, but that diUREtic treatment per se is not the only cause of this condition.
Cyclosporin-induced renal magnesium leak in renal transplant patients.
TLDR
The hypomagnesaemia in all cases was associated with a renal magnesium leak and did not correlate with plasma bicarbonate, urate, calcium, cyclosporin or creatinine concentrations, nor did it correlate with the use of loop diuretics or duration of the transplant.
