Kidney disease requires magnesium - Jan 2013

Highlights from Natural News Dr. Carol Dean (Ms Magnesium)

  • magnesium is required by about 1300 enzymes systems in the body,
  • Magnesium also has about 4,000 receptor sites on body proteins.
  • One doctor said he couldn't understand why there was 5X more cardiovascular hospitalization and cardiovascular events in people with lowered kidney filtration rates but normal blood chemistry..Low Magnesium!!
  • Use ionized magnesium testing so you know what's really going on with magnesium levels in the body.
    Serum magnesium testing is highly inaccurate. It gives everyone a false sense of security about magnesium levels.
    Only about 1 percent of the total body magnesium is in the serum
  • people with chronic kidney disease have the highest levels of serum magnesium and in the same sample, the lowest levels of ionized magnesium
  • There are only 140 labs of 5,000 in the U.S. that do the ionized magnesium test
