Abstract

Aim: To study the effect of magnesium supplementation on glycemic control in diabetic patients.
Material and Methods: Total of 120 patients of diabetes mellitus type-2 (Group I- 60 patients with oral Magnesium & Group II- 60 without Magnesium supplementation) were investigated for Fasting Blood Sugar, Serum Magnesium, at various visits to OPD. Measured data was analyzed statistically. Observations & Result: Mean Baseline value for fasting blood glucose was 144.32±0.94 and after treatment values at 16 weeks 128.93±0.75 was observed in Group I patients. In Group II; fasting blood glucose was 145.20±1.12 and after treatment values at 16 weeks 134.18±0.94.
Conclusion: This difference between before and after treatment was considered highly significant in group I patients than Group II patients. This suggested magnesium supplementation helps in glycemic control.
