Author information

Department of Internal Medicine, Overlook Hospital, Summit, NJ, USA.


Hypomagnesemia has long been known to be associated with diabetes mellitus. Mather et al confirmed the presence of hypomagnesemia in nearly 25% of their diabetic out-patients. Low serum magnesium level has been reported in children with insulin-dependent diabetes and through the entire spectrum of adult type I and type II diabetics regardless of the type of therapy. Hypomagnesemia has been correlated with both poor diabetic control and insulin resistance in nondiabetic elderly patients.
