Introduction: Diabetes mellitus characterized by high glycemic levels is routinely associated with many mineral abnormalities. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the levels of serum magnesium among subjects with diabetes mellitus and to compare and analyze the same in normal non diabetics.
Materials and Methods: In this case control study conducted at Malla Reddy Hospital, 50 subjects known to be diabetics were considered as cases and 50 apparently normal non- diabetics were the controls. Serum magnesium was estimated, compared and analyzed.
Results: Serum magnesium levels were 1.89 ± 0.32 among cases and 2.26 ± 0.27 among controls. Extreme statistical significance was observed between both the groups.
Conclusion: Serum magnesium levels were found to be decreased in subjects with diabetes mellitus. We conclude that diabetes mellitus could influence magnesium homeostasis.

Keywords: Diabetes mellitus, Magnesium, Fasting plasma glucose.
