RBC Magnesium blood test

Description

This blood test is ordered from Life Extension®. Their doctors prepare the test requests for you to take to a LabCorp location outside of Maryland for your blood draw. The test results go directly to you rather than to your doctor. Results are received quickly and the process is fairly smooth! The cost of this test is not going to be covered by insurance but submission to your FSA/HSA account is possible (not guaranteed). It might just be a PITA to try.

From Life Extension®:
This test measures your red blood cells’ levels of magnesium, which play a vital role in preventing heart disease, controlling blood pressure and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.
Magnesium plays many vital roles in preventing heart disease, controlling blood pressure, and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. Red blood cell (RBC) magnesium is the most precise way to assess intracellular magnesium status, and has been shown to be inversely related with hypertension.
Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
