The Magnesium is the fourth most abundant cation in the body, second most abundant cation of the intracellular fluid and is known to be intimately associated with a variety of metabolic events. Magnesium is one of the most vital elements in biologic systems. In the plant world, it is the key element of chlorophyll. In the animal world, it is essential for many vital enzyme systems among which is the activation of membrane bound adenosine triphosphates. This enzyme system deals with energy production through oxidative phosphorylation and with distribution of sodium and potassium across the cell membrane.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
The patients admitted in Owaisi Hospitals & Research Centre, Hyderabad were clinically investigated and pathological proved have been selected for the present study of serum magnesium estimation. In the present case 22 cases of viral hepatitis and 40 cases of normal (control) were considered and (40 normal individuals, 30 males and 10 females were studied to serve as controls and 15 cases of diabetes mellitus are studied in the present case.
The present study presents the data on level of serum Magnesium in normal and diseased persons (Viral Hepatitis). The results reveal that the mean serum magnesium levels are found to be higher in Viral Hepatitis and in diabetes mellitus in Comparison with that of Control (Normal) Group.
This study has shown that the mean Serum Magnesium Level were higher in cases of Viral Hepatitis and in diabetes mellitus in comparison with the normal control group.
