Signs and Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency
Magnesium deficiency, or medically known as hypomagnesemia is an often neglected mineral deficiency that can cause troublesome signs and symptoms. A majority of people are deficient in this potent mineral and don’t take their recommended daily intake of magnesium. However, its signs and symptoms commonly don’t develop until the blood levels become very low.
The causes of hypomagnesemia may vary from person to person and can include inadequate intake in the diet to loss of excess magnesium from the body. Health problems linked to magnesium deficiency either due to inadequate intake or excess loss include chronic diarrhea, celiac disease, diabetes, hungry bone syndrome, and poor absorption of the nutrients.
