Hypomagnesemia is defined as a serum magnesium level less than 1.8 mg/dL (< 0.74 mmol/L). Hypomagnesemia may result from inadequate magnesium intake, increased gastrointestinal or renal losses, or redistribution from extracellular to intracellular space. Increased renal magnesium loss can result from genetic or acquired renal disorders. Most patients with hypomagnesemia are asymptomatic and symptoms usually do not arise until the serum magnesium concentration falls below 1.2 mg/dL. One of the… Expand

TLDR
The case of a patient with symptomatic hypomagnesemia due to short bowel syndrome and PPI therapy, which revealed low 24-hour urinary magnesium excretion and secondary hypocalcemia, is reported. Expand
Contemporary view of the clinical relevance of magnesium homeostasis
TLDR
Although most patients with hypomagnesaemia are asymptomatic, manifestations may include neuromuscular, cardiovascular and metabolic features, and occasionally administration of intravenous calcium or even dialysis may be required. Expand
A Case of Idiopathic Hypomagnesemia with Hypocalcemia Presenting as Generalized Tonic-Clonic Seizure
TLDR
A case of idiopathic hypomagnesemia is reported in a month- old female patient with generalized tonic-clonic seizure, with no history of chronic diarrhea or failure to thrive, which supports the conclusion that intake was adequate. Expand
How should hypomagnesaemia be investigated and treated?
TLDR
Patients with symptomatic hypomagnesaemia should be treated with intravenous magnesium, reserving oral replacement for asymptomatic patients. Expand
The Role of Magnesium in Post-thyroidectomy Hypocalcemia
TLDR
Postoperative hypomagnesemia is a common event following total thyroidectomy, and magnesium levels tend to mimic the calcium levels postoperatively, mainly a factor of parathyroid function and fluid status. Expand
Hypomagnesaemia
  • Medicine
  • Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin
  • 2013
TLDR
The causes and management of hypomagnesaemia are reviewed and the risk associated with prolonged use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) is drawn attention. Expand
Variations in Magnesium Concentration Are Associated with Increased Mortality: Study in an Unselected Population of Hospitalized Patients
TLDR
The results indicate that dysmagnesemia is associated with severe diseases and generally severe conditions and an increase of a lower cut-off for serum magnesium concentration to at least 0.75 mmol/L is suggested to avoid misdiagnosis. Expand
Hypomagnesemia and Outcomes in Hematologic Malignancies
TLDR
The goal of this work is to stimulate studies to further investigate the role of magnesium in improving outcomes in patients with hematologic malignancies. Expand
Hipomagnesemia severa associada à toma de diuréticos tiazídicos e inibidores da bomba de protões
TLDR
This dissertation aims to relate hypomagnesemia with two very important classes of drugs which are currently used worldwide in several therapeutic plans and can cause this electrolitic change: thiazide diuretics and proton pump inhibitors. Expand

TLDR
An Indian family with hereditary hypomagnesaemia and secondary hypocalcaemia is reported to highlight importance of early diagnosis and timely administration of adequate lifelong magnesium supplements to improve clinical outcome and long term prognosis. Expand

Hypomagnesemia: renal magnesium handling.
TLDR
Hypomagnesemia may arise together with and contribute to the persistence of hypokalemia and hypocalcemia, and the major direct toxicity of hypomgnesemia is cardiovascular. Expand
Magnesium Homeostasis and Clinical Disorders of Magnesium Deficiency
TLDR
Routine inclusion of serum Mg analysis in the electrolyte panel will enhance the clinical recognition and treatment of hypomagnesemic Mg-depleted patients, and close attention must be paid to optimizing K replenishment in hypokalemic patients by concurrent treatment of any accompanying hypomgnesemia to avoid the problem of refractory K repletion. Expand
[Familial hypomagnesemia with hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis].
TLDR
A new case of familiar hypomagnesemia with hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis is reported, caused by a congenital defect in magnesium reabsorption, and the evolution of the illness during 3 years' treatment. Expand
Fractional excretion of magnesium in normal subjects and in patients with hypomagnesemia.
TLDR
FEMg++ could better distinguish the two groups of hypomagnesemic patients than the urinary magnesium to creatinine molar ratio, and is a very useful tool for the diagnostic approach of hypOMagnesemia. Expand
Use of calcium excretion values to distinguish two forms of primary renal tubular hypokalemic alkalosis: Bartter and Gitelman syndromes.
TLDR
The Bartter and Gitelman syndromes represent two distinct variants of primary renal tubular hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis and are easily distinguished on the basis of urinary calcium levels. Expand
Refractory potassium repletion. A consequence of magnesium deficiency.
TLDR
Until serum Mg is routinely performed consideration should be given to treating hypokalemic patients with both Mg as well as K to avoid the problem of refractory K repletion due to coexisting Mg deficiency. Expand

A 58-year-old man is found on laboratory testing to have a serum calcium level of 6.0 mg per deciliter (1.5 mmol per liter) and his medical history is notable only for longstanding hearing difficulties. Expand
Novel paracellin-1 mutations in 25 families with familial hypomagnesemia with hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis.
TLDR
Haplotype analysis strongly suggested a founder effect among patients with FHHNC who originated from Germany or eastern European countries, and hypercalciuria and/or nephrolithiasis were observed in otherwise unaffected family members, indicating a possible role of heterozygous PCLN-1 mutations in yieldinghypercalciuric stone-forming conditions.
