The Symptoms of Hypomagnesemia (Low Magnesium or Magnesium Deficiency)


Hypomagnesemia is serum magnesium concentration < 1.8 mg/dL (< 0.70 mmol/L). Causes include inadequate magnesium intake and absorption or increased excretion due to hypercalcemia or drugs such as furosemide. Clinical features are often due to accompanying hypokalemia and hypocalcemia and include lethargy, tremor, tetany, seizures, and arrhythmias. Treatment is with magnesium replacement. [1]

Magnesium deficiency is a medical condition where there is a low level of magnesium in the human body.
