Understanding Magnesium in New Delhi


What is Magnesium in New Delhi?

A Magnesium test is used to determine the level of magnesium, a vital mineral, in your blood. This test may be done for evaluating kidney problems or uncontrolled diabetes. It may also be performed to help diagnose gastrointestinal (relating to stomach and intestines) disorders.

What does Magnesium measure?

A 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.
