Lipid and protein peroxidations were investigated in female patients with magnesium deficit (MD), fibromyalgia (FM) and age matched controls: malondialdehyde and protein carbonyls (PC), as well as serum, leucocyte and erythrocyte magnesium (EMg) were assessed in 20 controls, 25 FM and 16 MD patients. MDA are unchanged in MD and FM. PC are significantly increased (P < 0.01) in FM. EMg is significantly decreased in MD. There is a slight, but not significant, negative correlation between PC and EMg, in controls and MD. Protein peroxidations are demonstrated in FM. Further studies are needed in MD.
