Magnesium, in addition to potassium, is one of the irons which are inorganic found in the human body and one of the common intracellular ions. Acute liver disorders are associated with elevated serum levels of magnesium, which is equal to serum levels of bilirubin. But withchronic liver disease and cirrhosis patient, only few studies are available.Deficiency of magnesium isvery common in the general population and prevalence of it in the patients of cirrhosis is even more. Difference between the serum levels of magnesium and total body content is weak because most of the magnesium is intracellular. Therefore,We hereby have planned this study to assess magnesium levels in patients of cirrhosis in different phases of disease.
