Alexandra M. -

I have started implementing the changes recommended in this episode regarding serum magnesium levels into my practice but I was hoping I could get links to the resources that support this. I couldn’t find it in the show notes. It has come up in discussion several times at work and it would be helpful to have the data to back up why I haven’t been ordering serum magnesium levels. Thanks!

Anand S., M.D. -

Alexandra - I'll let Corey answer this as well but here is an article that I have on hand that may be helpful:

The relationship between disorders of K+ and Mg+ homeostasis.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3317639

This one may be helpful as well:
Magnesium Basics
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4455825/

And one more:
The underestimated problem of using serum magnesium measurements to exclude magnesium deficiency in adults; a health warning is needed for "normal" results.
