Magnesium and Man provides the physician with a brief yet comprehensive overview of magnesium as a biochemical agent in human metabolism and disease. The first half of the book introduces techniques of measurement as well as the role of magnesium in normal biochemistry and physiology. The remaining chapters discuss magnesium squarely in the context of human disease: neonatal deficiency, thyroid disease, kidney disease, malignant osteolytic disease, alcoholism, and cirrhosis. Written by a clinician who is also a dominant figure in magnesium research, this book greatly advances communication between laboratory and clinic and will be essential reading for anyone involved in patient care.
