Magnesium Test Overview

Magnesium is a form of electrolyte or mineral found in the body. It is responsible for efficient functioning of the muscles, nerves and other major systems. Magnesium also partly controls the blood pressure and the blood glucose levels. While most of the magnesium is stored in the bones and the tissues, a part of it is also present in the blood. Magnesium test thus measures the magnesium levels in the blood. Too low or too high magnesium levels may lead to serious health complications.
