Abstract: 

Introduction: The Magnesium ions (Mg) have significant effects on respiratory system in asthmatic patients. Improvement of hypomagnesaemia may lead to decreasing rate of hospitalization and morbidity. The aim of the study was to determine the blood serum magnesium value in chronic stable asthma and to compare with general healthy population.
Materials and methods: forty-two consecutive and volunteer patients with chronic stable asthma according to the definite criteria, healthy sex and age-matched were recruited. Secondary causes of hypomagnesaemia were ruled out by questionnaire. Serum blood sample was obtained for assignment magnesium value. Normal MG values in serum were1.8 mg/dl and 1.9 mg/dl in males and females, respectively.
Results: in the final exam the significant difference was evident between two groups (P<0.001). 40.5% hypomagnesaemia was found in chronic stable asthma. Overall mean age was (40.16±12.8 SD). Mean Mg value was (1.85±0.28 SD). Male to female ratio was 23/19.
Discussion: hypomagnesaemia was confirmed in chronic stable asthma in Iranian patients. It may be due to using individual medication in asthma management and/or dietary habits of Iranian should be considered. But further investigation will required.
