We studied the relation of plasma renin activity to serum levels of ionized calcium and magnesium in 102 normotensive patients and in 98 patients with essential hypertension who were divided into low-renin, normal-renin, and high-renin groups. Serum magnesium levels were higher in patients with low-renin hypertension and lower in patients with high-renin hypertension than in those with normal-renin hypertension (P less than 0.025 for both comparisons) or in normotensive controls (P less than 0… CONTINUE READING
