Magnesium stable isotope composition, but not concentration, responds to obesity and early insulin-resistant conditions in minipig.

Sci Rep 2022 Jun 29;12(1):10941. Epub 2022 Jun 29.

Laboratoire de Géologie de Lyon, ENS de Lyon, Université de Lyon, CNRS, Lyon, France.

Hypomagnesemia is frequently associated with type 2 diabetes and generally correlates with unfavorable disease progression, but the magnesium status in pre-diabetic conditions remains unclear. Here, the magnesium metabolism is scrutinized in a minipig model of obesity and insulin resistance by measuring variations of the metallome-the set of inorganic elements-and the magnesium stable isotope composition in six organs of lean and obese minipigs raised on normal and Western-type diet, respectively. We found that metallomic variations are most generally insensitive to lean or obese phenotypes. Read More

J Endocr Soc 2022 Aug 15;6(8):bvac087. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Department of Diabetology, Hôpital Cochin, APHP, and Université Paris Cité, Paris, France.

Hepatocyte nuclear factor-1B (HNF1B) maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY), also referred to as "renal cysts and diabetes syndrome" or MODY-5, is a rare form of monogenic diabetes that is caused by a deletion or a point mutation in the HNF1B gene, a developmental gene that plays a key role in regulating urogenital and pancreatic development. HNF1B-MODY has been characterized by its association with renal, hepatic and other extrapancreatic features. We present the case of a 39-year-old female patient who was first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, but then, owing to the absence of anti-islet autoantibodies and to the disease's progression, was labeled later on as having atypical type 2 diabetes.

J Am Soc Nephrol 2022 Jul 21;33(7):1402-1410. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Department of Medicine, Lausanne University Hospital, Lausanne, Switzerland

Background: Chronic hypomagnesemia is commonly due to diarrhea, alcoholism, and drugs. More rarely, it is caused by genetic defects in the effectors of renal magnesium reabsorption.

Methods: In an adult patient with acquired severe hypomagnesemia, hypocalcemia, tubulointerstitial nephropathy, and rapidly progressing kidney injury, similarities between the patient's presentation and features of genetic disorders of renal magnesium transport prompted us to investigate whether the patient had an acquired autoimmune cause of renal magnesium wasting.

A Novel Mutation in CLDN16 Gene Causing Familial Hypomagnesemia, Hypercalciuria, Nephrocalcinosis in An Iranian Family.

Iran J Kidney Dis 2022 May;16(3):209-213

Department of Nephrology, Hasheminejad Kidney Center, Iran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Familial hypomagnesemia with hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis (FHHNC) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder that is characterized by renal magnesium wasting, hypercalciuria and eventually kidney failure which mostly affects children and young aged adults. Mutation of genes of claudin-16 and claudin-19 are involved in the pathogenesis of this disorder, which leads to renal magnesium and calcium wasting. A 35-year-old man with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) was referred to our clinic due to bilateral nephrocalcinosis, detected by ultrasonographic study, for further evaluation. Read More

J Community Hosp Intern Med Perspect 2022 12;12(2):60-64. Epub 2022 Apr 12.

Department of Hematology-Oncology, Faith Regional Health Services, Norfolk, NE, USA.

Denosumab is a human monoclonal antibody used to prevent skeletal-related events in prostate cancer patients with bone metastasis. Hypocalcemia ranging from mild to severe requiring prolonged hospitalization have been reported with the use of denosumab in patients with known risk factors such as chronic kidney disease, vitamin D deficiency, low parathyroid hormone level, hypomagnesemia, extensive osteoblastic metastasis, prior use of bisphosphonates, and comorbidities impairing calcium absorption. We present a case of a metastatic prostate cancer patient with extensive osteoblastic metastasis who developed severe recurrent hypocalcemia after a single dose of denosumab requiring a total of 58 days of high dose intravenous and oral calcium supplementations with three inpatient hospital admissions.

Case Report: Recurrent Hemiplegic Migraine Attacks Accompanied by Intractable Hypomagnesemia Due to a Gene Variant.

Front Pediatr 2022 31;10:880242. Epub 2022 May 31.

Department of Neurology, Tianjin Children's Hospital (Tianjin University Children's Hospital), Tianjin, China.

Transient receptor potential melastatin 7 (TRPM7) is a ubiquitously expressed chanzyme comprised of a divalent cation channel permeable to calcium and magnesium and a cytosolic serine-threonine α-kinase domain. TRPM7 has a crucial role in magnesium ion homeostasis and anoxic neuronal death, which was identified as a potential non-glutamate target for hypoxic-ischemic neuronal injury. TRPM7 is implicated in ischemic stroke and hypomagnesemia in many studies, but it has not been associated with disease in the OMIM database. Read More

Peoples' Friendship University, Moscow, Russia.

Supplementation of various substances (metabolites, microelements, vitamins) is sometimes recommended without sufficient indications. To decide whether a supplementation is needed, the question should be answered whether there is a deficiency, and if there is, if it can be compensated by diet. Magnesium (Mg) deficiency has been associated with cardiovascular diseases, certain metabolic and neuropsychiatric disorders. Read More

Molecular diagnosis of adult patients with clinically unexplained hypokalemia without hypertension demonstrated a diagnostic yield of 30.5.

Clin Genet 2022 May 22. Epub 2022 May 22.

Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, West China Hospital of Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.

Hypokalemia is a common disorder in clinical settings; however, nonmolecular diagnostic testing cannot explain some causes of hypokalemia. To determine the etiology of clinically unexplained hypokalemia without hypertension (CUHypoNH) and to obtain a diagnostic yield of monogenic hypokalemia without hypertension in adults (MHNHA), we enrolled 82 patients with CUHypoNH for whole-exome sequencing or targeted gene sequencing of genes associated with 4000 monogenic disorders. Through molecular diagnosis, 25 patients were diagnosed with monogenic hypokalemia, and a diagnostic yield of 30. Read More
