Renal Damage Caused by Magnesium Deficiency
Metastic calcification, frequently involving the kidneys, is not infrequent in patients with hypercalcemia, whether of dietary or metabolic derivation, because of osteolytic processes, or as a result of therapy. The study by B. S. W. Smith and Nisbet (1968), which showed that magnesium-deficient rats develop nephrocalcinosis, and later osteoporosis, is an appropriate reference for the transition from bone damage to renal damage of magnesium deficiency.
