The objective of this study was to evaluate the correlation of serum magnesium with anthropometric parameters (weight, WC, hip circumference, Basal metabolic index [BMI], and waist-hip ratio [WHR] of the subjects on the basis of the hypothesis that subjects with hypomagnesemia are more prone to develop obesity.
Risk rises with long-term use, but severe hypomagnesemia is rare
Treatment of the underlying disorder, correction of hypomagnesemia, and treatment of joint inflammation (with NSAIDs, prednisone or colchicine) were simultaneously used in most of the patients described.
Thus, we suspected the cerebellar syndrome due to hypomagnesemia and started an intravenous magnesium supplementation and an oral calcium intake.

Hypomagnesemia is another risk factor that can predispose to severe hypocalcemia with denosumab use in CKD which was evident in the case of this patient.
Assessment is also recommended if the patient is critically ill or when being administered certain medications known to cause hypomagnesemia. Table 3 lists other more accurate but lesser used measures of assessing magnesium status [2, 22].
However, QTc prolongation and/ or TdP generally appear only in the presence of multiple additional risk factors, such as: over 65 in age, pre-existent cardiovascular illnesses, bradycardia, feminine sex, hypopotassemia, hypomagnesemia, over therapeutic or toxic dose, concentration or simultaneous administration of drugs slowing down repolarization or interfering with the internalization of the drug (3).
Another laboratory finding in RFS is hypomagnesemia (1).
