Comments "Mg measurements for all 60 subjects are summarized in Table II. No subject had a S[Mg] [total magnesium concentration in serum] that exceeded the upper limit of the reference range (0.65 to 1.05 mmol/L), whereas 6 subjects were hypomagnesemic relative to [researchers’] laboratory's reference interval. [Mg++]i values ranged from 307 to 901 µmol/L." The value above is equivalent to 0.557±0.097 mM. Ionized magnesium means it is not bound to another molecule and therefore can be biologically active.
