CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE
The concentration of magnesium in serum increases in dehydration, chronic or acute renal insufficiency, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus (rare), adrenocortical insufficiency, Addison’s disease, tissue trauma, hypothyroidism, lupus erythematosus, multiple myeloma.

Decrease is observed in inadequate intake or impaired absorption of Mg (e.g. malabsorption syndrome, Kwashiorkor syndrome, diet low in proteins and calories), acute pancreatitis, hypoparathyroidism, chronic alcoholism, delirium tremens, disorders associated with increased Mg requirements and inadequate replacement of body fluids, chronic glomerulonephritis, hyperaldosteronism, diabetic acidosis, excessive lactation, inappropriate secretion of ADH, pregnancy (2nd and 3rd trimester), idiopathic hypomagnesemia, renal conservation of Mg. Tetany may occur at Mg concentrations 0.36 – 1.2 mg/dl at normal pH and normal calcium concentrations.
