A case of hypomagnesaemia due to malabsorption, unresponsive to oral administration of magnesium glycerophosphate, but responsive to oral magnesium oxide supplementation

Oral and intravenous replacement of minerals such as magnesium and calcium are usually straightforward in clinical practice, the choice generally being governed by the preparation most readily available. There are very few data comparing efficacy and absorption profiles of different magnesium salts. This case report highlights the importance of considering alternative preparations of oral magnesium salts in patients who appear unresponsive to one preparation, rather than moving on to chronic intravenous therapy via a Hickman line. In the case of patients with small bowel shortening, the use of magnesium oxide should be considered.

A pilot study on the effects of magnesium supplementation with high and low habitual dietary magnesium intake on resting and recovery from aerobic and resistance exercise and systolic blood pressure Kass, Lindsy; Skinner, Phillip; Poeira, Jose Filipe (2013-03)The effects of magnesium supplementation on blood pressure (BP) have been studied for over 25 years and results have been inconsistent. Blood pressure reductions in randomized studies have varied from 12 mmHg reductions ...
Taste perception in cirrhosis : its relationship to circulating micronutrients and food preferences Madden, A M; Bradbury, W; Morgan, M Y (1997)Impairment of gustatory acuity may influence nutrient intake and hence nutritional status.
