Abstract

To the Editor: Cholst et al. have shown that infusions of magnesium sulfate suppress serum calcium and parathyroid hormone concentrations in preeclamptic women (May 10 issue).1 They suggest that the suppression of the serum calcium Concentration was due in part to suppression of parathyroid hormone secretion, but concede that “other factors may have contributed.” The evidence discussed below suggests to us that factors other than the suppression of parathyroid hormone were responsible for the hypocalcemia observed. The report indicates that the serum parathyroid hormone concentrations returned to base-line values at 180 minutes, while the serum calcium concentrations were at their.
