Magnesium basics
The absorption and excretion of magnesium as well as hypo- and hypermagnesaemia will be addressed, and total serum magnesium is measured to monitor changes in magnesium status, although it does not necessarily reflect total body magnesium content.
Magnesium in health and disease
The importance of an oral or intravenously supplementation of magnesium has often been described in a variety of diseases, and in addition of special interest is the use of magnesium in critically ill patients in intensive care medicine.
Magnesium in man: implications for health and disease.
An extensive and comprehensive overview of Mg(2+) research over the last few decades is provided, focusing on the regulation of M g(2+) homeostasis in the intestine, kidney, and bone and disturbances which may result in hypomagnesemia.
Magnesium in Prevention and Therapy
Low levels of magnesium have been associated with a number of chronic diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, insulin resistance and type-2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, migraine headaches, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
The Structure and Function of the Na,K-ATPase Isoforms in Health and Disease
This review summarizes the various roles and expression patterns of the Na,K-ATPase subunit isoforms and maps the sequence variations to compare the differences structurally.
Magnesium sulfate
Although magnesium sulfate has not fulfilled the initial promise of preventing preterm birth, it does appear if used correctly in a well identified population of patients to at least transiently inhibit preterm labor as well as other tocolytic agents with fewer side effects and fewer contraindications.
Magnesium and type 2 diabetes.
Benefits of Mg supplementation on metabolic profiles in diabetic patients have been found in most, but not all clinical studies and larger prospective studies are needed to support the potential role of dietary Mg supplements as a possible public health strategy in diabetes risk.
Dietary factors and fluctuating levels of melatonin
Overall, foods containing melatonin or promoting the synthesis of it by impacting the availability of tryptophan, as well those containing vitamins and minerals which are needed as co-factors and activators in the synthesisof melatonin, may modulate the levels of melatonin.
