Low serum magnesium has been linked to increased mortality and cardiovascular disease. Serum magnesium was studied in a group of patients with chronic kidney (renal) disease.
Magnesium is the second most abundant intracellular cation in the body. It serves many functions. It is far more important than you might think and is involved in every function of the body.
Studies have shown that low magnesium levels were independently associated with all causes of death in patients with chronic kidney disease with or without other conditions as diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia.
