Relationship between serum magnesium level and subjective tinnitus

Sinan UluyolSaffet KılıçarslanÖzlem Yağız

ABSTRACT Objectives: This study aims to assess the relationship between serum magnesium level and bilateral subjective tinnitus. Patients and Methods: The study included a total of 76 patients (36 males, 40 females; mean age 48.5±6.5 years; range 43 to 65 years) suffering from severe bilateral subjective tinnitus (accepted as severe and catastrophic according to tinnitus severity index) as the study group and 86 healthy participants (42 males, 44 females; mean age 43.8±7.3 years; range 40 to 61 years) as the control group. Serum magnesium levels of both groups were measured and compared statistically. Results: The serum magnesium concentration was significantly lower in the study group compared to the control group (1.8±0.2 vs. 2.3±0.4 mg/dL, p=0.03). Conclusion: The significant association between serum magnesium level and tinnitus shows the importance of magnesium in the pathophysiology of subjective tinnitus.

Serum magnezyum düzeyi ve subjektif tinnitus arasındaki ilişki

Sinan UluyolSaffet KılıçarslanÖzlem Yağız

Amaç: Bu çalışmada, serum magnezyum düzeyi ve iki taraflı subjektif tinnitus arasındaki ilişki araştırıldı. Hastalar ve Yöntemler: İki taraflı şiddetli tinnitus yakınması (tinnitus şiddet indeksine göre şiddetli ve dayanılmaz olarak kabul edilen) olan toplam 76 hasta (36 erkek, 40 kadın; ort. yaş 48.5±6.5 yıl; dağılım 43-65 yıl) çalışma grubu ve 86 sağlıklı katılımcı (42 erkek, 44 kadın; ort. yaş 43.8±7.3 yıl; dağılım 40-61 yıl) kontrol grubu olarak çalışmaya dahil edildi. Her iki grubun serum magnezyum düzeyleri ölçüldü ve istatistiksel olarak karşılaştırıldı. Bulgular: Serum magnezyum konsantrasyonu, kontrol grubu ile karşılaştırıldığında çalışma grubunda anlamlı olarak düşük bulundu (2.3±0.4 m/dL’ye karşın 1.8±0.2, p=0.03). Sonuç: Serum magnezyum düzeyi ile tinnitus arasındaki anlamlı ilişki subjektif tinnitus patofizyolojisinde magnezyumun önemini göstermektedir.
