Description

  • Magnesium, serum
  • Item Catalog Number: LC001537

Magnesium is one of the body’s most important minerals. It is required as a co-factor in hundreds of enzymatic processes within cells. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, promotes a healthy cardiovascular function, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps maintain blood sugar and blood pressure levels already within normal range, and it is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.1,2

Instructions

Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.

Note

Measuring the amount of magnesium within the red blood cell is a more reliable test than a serum measurement. We offer this as a test called Magnesium, RBC.
