Low magnesium linked to worse survival in hemodialysis patients
from Renal & Urology News
Two new studies implicate low serum magnesium levels with worse survival among hemodialysis patients. A study led by Kamyar Kalantar-Zadeh, MD, MPH, PhD, of the University of California Irvine, found that, after adjusting for demographics and comorbid conditions, HD patients with a serum magnesium level below 1.8 mg/dL had a significant 39 percent increased risk of mortality compared with those who had a reference level of at least 2.2 but less than 2.4 mg/dL.
