Abstract

Objective. - To determine whether migraineurs may have a systemic deficiency of magnesium. Background. - Magnesium deficiency has been shown to play a potential role in the pathogenesis of migraine, but there are no data on total body magnesium status in migraineurs. Methods. - An oral magnesium load test was performed by giving 3000 mg of magnesium lactate during a 24-hour interictal period to 20 patients with migraine (15 women and 5 men; mean age, 37.9 years) and 20 healthy volunteers (16 women and 4 men; mean age, 39.6 years). Baseline and postload magnesium concentrations were determined from serum and 24-hour urine specimens. Results. - There was no significant difference between the groups in the baseline serum and urine magnesium concentrations, although the latter tended to be lower (P=.064) in the migraine group. The postload magnesium concentrations were significantly higher within both the migraine (P
