A positive influence of magnesium in the prevention and treatment of

Hyperactivity in children is more and more frequently raised in the literature.

The aim of our work was to estimate magnesium contents in children with

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, (ADHD). The investigations comprised

116 children (94 boys and 20 girls), aged 9-12 years, with recognized ADHD. In

68 out of 116 patients examined ADHD occurred with other coexisting disorders

Specific to the developmental age and in the remaining 48 patients it occurred

Together with disruptive behaviour. Magnesium levels have been determined in

Blood serum, red blood cells and in hair with the aid of atomic absorption

Spectroscopy. Magnesium deficiency was found in 95 per cent of those examined,

Most frequently in hair (77.6 per cent), in red blood cells (58.6 per cent) and

In blood serum (33.6 per cent) of children with ADHD. The conclusion from the

Investigations is that magnesium deficiency in children with ADHD occurs more

Frequently than in healthy children. Analysis of the material indicated the

Correlation between levels of magnesium and the quotient of development to

Freedom from distractibility. Behrman: Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics, Sixteenth Edition, Copyright © 2000

Chapter 539 – Bartter Syndrome

Jerry M. Bergstein

Bartter syndrome is a rare form of renal potassium wasting characterized by

Hypokalemia, normal blood pressure, vascular insensitivity to pressor agents,

And elevated plasma concentrations of renin and aldosterone. In certain

Families, the disorder may be inherited as an autosomal recessive trait.


Generalized hyperplasia of the juxtaglomerular apparatus, the site of renin

Production, is observed in most patients. The renal parenchyma is otherwise

Normal in most patients; a few have shown nonspecific glomerular disease,

Interstitial disease, or both.
