Manuscript Topics
Health problems during pregnancy affect the mother as well as the child and are thus of great public health concern, particularly in developing countries. There is increasing evidence that alterations in the normal magnesium homeostasis is a risk factor for pregnancy related health problems, particularly those affecting the circulatory system. As a deficiency in magnesium is usually caused by an inadequate intake through food and drinking water, the possibility for prevention is large. This special issue will provide a review of the available information concerning the importance of magnesium during pregnancy and where it plays a role for pregnancy complications. Based on this information recommendations for prevention will be suggested.
