Magnesium (blood) £POA
A blood test to measure magnesium levels in the blood. Magnesium is a mineral used by every organ in the body and is especially important for bones and muscles.
Magnesium is an important mineral needed for proper muscle, nerve, and enzyme function. It also helps the body make and use energy and is needed to move other electrolytes (potassium and sodium) into and out of cells.
Most of the magnesium in the body is found in the bones and inside the cells. Only a tiny amount of magnesium is normally present in the blood.
Magnesium is found in fibre-rich foods such as green leafy vegetables, avocados, bananas, wholemeal bread and brown rice as well as in fish and meat.
