Magnesium and potassium deficiencies in women with pre-menstrual syndrome
Stewart A, Howard JMH
Magnesium deficiency has been described in women with Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS). Measurement of serum and red cell magnesium levels in 17 women with severe PMS confirms the previous finding of an intracellular deficiency of magnesium.
Serum-Magnesium 0.748μ 0.05 mmol/L normal 0.6 μ 1.2
Red Cell-Magnesium 1.67μ 0.08 mmol/L normal 1.7 μ 2.6
Red Cell-Potassium 81.69μ 2.39 mmol/L, normal 80.5 μ 95.6
A total 14 women had depressed red cell magnesium levels (14 subnormal). In addition red cell potassium levels were also depressed.
Deficiency of magnesium or magnesium and potassium may contribute to PMS. Measurement of these nutrients and correction of their deficiency may help to alleviate the symptoms of PMS.
NOTICE : Biolab Limited has gone into administration
14th July 2022
Biolab Limited has gone into administration due to the delay by The Care Quality Commission in processing our application to transfer our business activities to our laboratory site in West London following an earlier temporary suspension.
We always remained highly confident that Biolab would reopen and invested heavily in relocating the business, retaining and retraining our employees, developing new and improved methods of work and updating our documentation, so this comes as a huge disappointment for us all, but as you’ll appreciate no business can continue indefinitely without an income.
We are no longer able to process any samples for testing.
Biolab is very proud of the help we have given to hundreds of thousands of patients over 37 years, and we thank everyone for their phenomenal support and loyalty over the years, and for the hundreds of messages of support we have received in recent months.
