This test is used to evaluate Magnesium levels in red blood cells. Magnesium is a mineral that is important for strong bones and muscles, heart health, energy production, and nerve function. Magnesium levels are typically checked to evaluate kidney function, aid in the diagnosis of certain gastrointestinal disorders, or determine the severity of uncontrolled diabetes. Magnesium deficiency can be associated with malnutrition, malabsorption, chronic diarrhea, and alcoholism.
This is a non-fasting blood test. Expect results in 4-6 business days.
