The other electrolytes: magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus.

Abstract

Other electrolytes besides sodium and potassium are important to ensure that the human body functions properly. Three of these are magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus. Each one has a normal level and specific assignments. If these levels are not maintained, homeostasis ceases to exist, and imbalance ensues. This article discusses the causes, signs, symptoms, and treatments of imbalance of these electrolytes.
