All You Need To Know About Magnesium Deficiency

When do you consider magnesium deficiency?

Magnesium deficiency test

Healthy magnesium levels range between 1.5 to 2.5 milliequivalents Per Liter (mEq/L). If the test results are lower than 1.5 mEq/L, magnesium deficiency is diagnosed. A blood test is not the best way to recognize magnesium deficiency because there are only tiny amounts in the blood, and the rest is stored in the bones and inside the cells. Some tests can measure magnesium levels in the body more accurately, as in EXA tests, which measures magnesium levels inside the cells. There’s also a urine test and magnesium level measurements in red blood cells.
