Diabetes Prevention and Management

Scientific evidence strongly suggests that adequate dietary magnesium reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes. A meta-analysis of 13 prospective cohort studies examined this association in more than 500,000 subjects of diverse backgrounds. Results clearly demonstrated a significant inverse relationship between dietary magnesium and diabetes risk—a risk that isn’t altered when factors such as sex, [...]

Magnesium and Prediabetes

Abstract: Over the past decades, hypomagnesemia (deficiency of magnesium in the blood) (serum Mg(2+) <0.7 mmol/L) has been strongly associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Patients with hypomagnesemia show a more rapid disease progression and have an increased risk for diabetes complications. Clinical studies demonstrate that T2DM patients with hypomagnesemia have reduced pancreatic β-cell activity [...]

Magnesium and Glycemic Control – New Study

The treatment goals for Type 2 Diabetes are related to effective control of blood glucose, blood pressure and other factors, to minimize the risk of long-term consequences associated with diabetes. In new research entitled: “A study of magnesium supplementation on glycemic control in patients of type-2 diabetes mellitus” The aim of the research was to [...]

Type 2 Diabetes – Magnesium, Diet and Genes

A new study investigated the complex interactions between magnesium intake, genes and ethnicity in determining risk for type 2 diabetes in two populations of women. The specific associations yielded by the analysis illustrate how health guidance could become considerably more personalized. Dr. Simin Liu, professor of epidemiology in the School of Public Health at Brown [...]

Magnesium Reduces Diabetes Risk by 53%

In a 2013 published study involving more than 2,500 people, those with the highest magnesium intake had the lowest risk of developing type 2 diabetes over a 7-year period, as reported in Diabetes Care. “There is a substantial body of literature linking low magnesium intake or low magnesium status (as measured in the blood) to [...]

Magnesium Supplements Lower Inflammation

A May 7, 2014 article published in the Archives of Medical Research reports the results of a double-blind trial of subjects with prediabetes and low magnesium levels which found a benefit for magnesium supplementation in reducing C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation. “Our results show that oral magnesium supplementation significantly decreases hsCRP levels in [...]

Magnesium Deficiency Linked to Diabetes

By Hans R. Larsen MSc ChE – BALTIMORE, MARYLAND. A link between low body levels of magnesium and type 2 diabetes has long been suspected, but there has been no agreement as to whether low magnesium levels cause diabetes or the presence of diabetes results in low magnesium levels. A team of researchers from [...]
