    More Magnesium = Less Diabetes?

    Measuring-BloodIn this study, researchers looked at magnesium intake and the risk of progression to type 2 diabetes from incident prediabetes and/or insulin resistance. After adjusting for age (participants were 26-81 yrs old at baseline) and energy intake, those with the highest magnesium intake had a 37% lower risk of incident metabolic impairment as compared to those with the lowest magnesium intake. Additionally, for those with baseline metabolic impairment, higher magnesium intake was associated with 32% lower risk of incident diabetes. In the combined population of nearly 2600 participants, the risk in those with the highest intake was only 53% of those having the lowest magnesium intake. The researchers concluded that magnesium intake may be particularly beneficial in offsetting risk of developing diabetes among those at high risk.
