What Is Magnesium Test?
Magnesium plays an essential role in delivering signals from the brain to body. It acts as a gatekeeper for the N-methyl-D-aspartate(NMDA) receptors. It’s required for healthy bones, muscles, heart and nerves. It helps our body to control energy, blood sugar, blood pressure. Magnesium is naturally found in many foods like peanut butter, beans, whole grains, nuts, spinach, milk, etc.
When NMDA receptors are blocked, this means that the level of magnesium in an individual’s body is low.
Why Magnesium Test Is Performed?
- The magnesium test is done to check whether an individual is having normal or abnormal magnesium levels in the blood.
- There are two conditions in which a doctor may ask to have magnesium test, namely hypomagnesemia(low levels of magnesium) and hypermagnesemia(high levels of magnesium).
- This test also helps to determine the risk of developing heart disease. The doctor may also suggest this test to pregnant women to check the possibilities of occurrence of pre-eclampsia(pregnancy complication characterised by high blood pressure).
