Understanding Magnesium in Bangalore


What is Magnesium in Bangalore?

The Magnesium is a blood test used to measure the level of magnesium, a vital mineral, in your body. This test is often done to diagnose and monitor conditions that affect magnesium levels such as kidney disease, uncontrolled diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, etc. It is available at an affordable price with Tata 1mg labs in Bangalore.

Your doctor may suggest the Magnesium test if you experience symptoms suggestive of abnormal magnesium levels such as muscle cramps, numbness or tingling, irregular heartbeat, diarrhea, confusion, slurred speech, and seizures. This test can also be done in pregnant women to check the possibility of preeclampsia (a serious pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure). No fasting is required for this test. You can eat and drink normally as per your routine.

What does Magnesium measure?

The Magnesium test determines the amount of magnesium in your blood. Magnesium enters the body through the diet and is absorbed by the small intestine and colon. Most of the magnesium is stored in the skeletal system comprising the bones and joints, while minor amounts are present in the muscles and other soft tissues. Any fluctuation in the levels of magnesium can cause various health complications that may need medical intervention. Therefore, this test serves as an important diagnostic test that helps doctors detect any abnormalities in magnesium levels and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
