How do you test magnesium levels?
Magnesium levels can be tested using a blood test. To do a total serum magnesium test, a healthcare worker will draw blood from a vein in your arm and send it to the laboratory for analysis.
How will you know if your magnesium is low?
The common symptoms of low magnesium levels are appetite loss, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, shaking, muscle spasms, pins and needles, sleepiness, weakness, and hyperexcitability.
What are the symptoms of high magnesium levels?
The usual symptoms of high magnesium levels are nausea, vomiting, very low blood pressure (hypotension), flushing, headache, and neurological disorders.
Who is most at risk for magnesium deficiency?
Women require 320 mg of magnesium daily while men require 420mg. Those who are at most risk of magnesium deficiency are older individuals because their bodies are less capable of absorbing magnesium but the kidneys excrete more of it.
Should I make an appointment for urgent care?
Not necessarily. Most urgent cares accept walk-in patients. But if you want shorter wait times, you can book an appointment through phone or online.
What do magnesium levels indicate?
High magnesium levels are often associated with kidney disease. Low magnesium levels, on the other hand, could be a sign of diabetes, malnourishment, digestive problems, or chronic alcoholism. Low magnesium levels in pregnant women is associated with preeclampsia.
Does insurance plan cover all urgent care services?
Most urgent care services are covered by insurance. Please contact your insurance plan provider directly for specific questions related to your coverage, deductible, & plan.
Can I go to urgent care without insurance?
Yes. If you need urgent care and you have no insurance, we offer affordable rates for all health care services we offer.

I would like to thank a receptionist for being beyond kind and helpful. I came this Saturday morning, and she was the only one at the desk. Thank you so much for being a beautiful positive person. All the staff was also excellent.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.
