52) Intriguingly, none of the patients had detectably low blood magnesium
at the study's outset, suggesting that it's possible to be total-body deficient in magnesium, while still maintaining normal blood levels.
Patients with or without AF did not differ in terms of tissue and blood magnesium
levels during and early after CPB and during 7 days after the operation.
Then they looked at the blood magnesium
levels of the participants.
Studies relating asthmatic attacks to blood magnesium
levels have produced a confusing picture.
A woman with high blood pressure and low blood magnesium
levels led scientists to the discovery.
Increased levels of blood magnesium
help inhibit clogging of the arteries and thereby reduce heart disease risk.
There is mounting evidence that people with a number of diseases have lower blood magnesium

In a study of the effects of diuretics, the blood magnesium
concentration of 320 elderly patients receiving diuretic therapy at the time of hospital admission was compared with that of 250 elderly patients who were not taking diuretics.
