Background and Objective: Hypomagnesemia can lead to bronchial smooth muscle contraction and is associated with wheezeing, airway hyperactivity and impairment of lung function. The aim of this study was to compare serum magnesium levels between asthmatic and healthy children.
Methods: This case-control study was performed from September 2018 to February 2019. Totally, 125 children (78 asthmatic and 47 healthy non-asthmatic children) aged 3-14 years referred to Amirkola Children's Hospital in Iran were entered to the study. Sampling was done using the available method based on inclusion criteria. Serum magnesium levels were measured in all children in the laboratory of Amirkola Children's Hospital. P<0.05 was considered a significant level.
Findings: The mean age of children was 81.21±35.45 months, among them, 77 (61.6%) and 48 (38.4%) were male and female, respectively. The mean serum magnesium level of children was 2.08 and 2.04 mg/dl in the control and asthma groups, respectively and there was no statistically significant difference between the two groups (p=0.49).
Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study, there is no significant difference between serum magnesium levels in asthmatic patients and the control group and it is not necessary to routinely measure magnesium levels in these patients.
