Serum and ionized magnesium concentrations are of growing interest in internal medicine, especially in cardiovascular diseases or in patients with diabetes mellitus [1-6]. 55-70% of total blood serum magnesium is the ionized magnesium amount, e.g. the active form, which is the vasoactive part. To assess total body magnesium content still remains difficult at all, e.g. 1% of total magnesium content [1, 2].In this context, recent papers showed statistically significant decreased ionized magnesium concentrations [...]
