Abstract

A possible role for magnesium in the formation of calcium stones was suggested by the investigations of Hammarsten1, who reported a beneficial effect of magnesium on the solubility of calcium oxalate in vitro. Furthermore, experimentally-induced magnesium depletion in the rat is known to cause calcification in the proximal tubular cells in the kidneys2.
