Abstract

Objectives

Neonatal hypomagnesemia is defined as total magnesium (TMg) Study design

We recruited 22 neonates with TMg Results

Thirteen (59%) of 22 neonates with TMg Conclusions

(1) Measurement of ionized Mg should prevent overdiagnosis and treatment of hypomagnesemia. (2) The dose used in this study is safe. (3) Ionized Mg concentrations are inversely correlated to the response of ionized Ca concentrations to an Mg load. (J Pediatr 1998;132:652-5)
