Abstract EN

In the current study the effects potassium and magnesium ions administration on blood parameters in 2-kidney one clip (2K1C) hypertensive and normotensive rats were investigated.

Seventy male albino rats were separated into two experiments.

The first experiment was performed to test the effects of potassium and magnesium on some haematological parameters included blood cell count, and platelet (PLT) indices in 2K1C hypertensive rats.

The second experiment was done on the normotensive rats measuring the same parameters in the first experiment.

The high blood pressure of 2K1C resulted in a significant elevation in RBCs, hemoglobin (HGB), WBCs count, granulocytes, monocytes and PLT count, while; statistical analysis showed a significant decrease in mean platelet volume (MPV) in 2K1C group.

Moreover, non-significant changes were observed in other blood parameters in 2K1C hypertensive rats.

Supplementation of potassium decreased RBCs count, hematocrit (HCT), WBCs count, granulocytes, monocytes and PLT count.

While it had non-significant effect in HGB, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), lymphocytes, MPV and PDW.

Magnesium alone and in combination with potassium caused not significant changes in RBCs, HGB, MCV, MCH, lymphocytes, MPV and MDW, while, significant decreases were recorded in granulocytes, monocytes and PLT in comparison to 2K1C rats.

In the second experiment, potassium alone and in combination with magnesium caused no significant differences in RBCs, HGB, HCT, MCV and MCH, wearers, RBCs, HGB and HCT were elevated by magnesium supplementation.

On the other hand, anon-significant changes were noticed MCV and MCH level in magnesium treated rat group.

Also, nonsignificant differences were recorded among the experimental groups in WBCs, granulocytes, lymphocytes, and monocytes, PLT, MPV and PDW.

Using magnesium and potassium ions supplementation alone or their combinations could improve the elevated WBCs, RBCs and PLTs counts in 2K1C hypertensive rats
