Low intracellular free magnesium concentrations ([Mg2+]i) are associated with essential hypertension and may reflect a disordered cellular ionic environment. 31P magnetic resonance spectroscopy was used to study skeletal muscle [Mg2+]i in a group of chronic renal failure (CRF) patients and data were compared with a group of control subjects of similar age. Other data including the patients' blood pressure, medication and plasma biochemistry were collected. There was a significant inverse… CONTINUE READING
