Kharkiv Medical Academy of Post−graduate Education, Kharkiv, Ukraine
The necessity to normalize the balance of the blood magnesium and calcium in atopic dermatitis was substantiated. The effect of Magnerot (a metabolic medication) in this disease was investigated. The use of magnesium orotate in complex treatment of the dermatosis was shown to improve the clinical course of the disease and normalize the majority of the laboratory findings. The obtained findings suggest that the use of magnesium−containing medication in treatment of atopic dermatitis is pathogenetically substantiated.
Key words: atopic dermatitis, magnesium, calcium, treatment, magnesium orotate.
