Four studies were conducted, each determining the frequency of hypomagnesemia in patients already found to have one abnormal electrolyte determination. Hypomagnesemia occurred in 42% of patients with hypokalemia, 29% of patients with hypophosphatemia, 27% of patients with hyponatremia, and 22% of patients with hypocalcemia. These observations suggest that detection of either hypokalemia, hypophosphatemia, hyponatremia, or hypocalcemia, all of which are routinely available determinations, should… CONTINUE READING
