Answer

Magnesium deficiency has also been linked to chronic fatigue syndrome (myalgic encephalomyelitis), sudden death in athletes, impaired athletic performance, and sudden infant death syndrome. Risk prediction for pre-eclampsia can be improved by measuring ionized magnesium, rather than the total magnesium concentration in blood. [74]
