What is it about?
Deficiency of magnesium results in diseases that cause incalculable suffering and costs worldwide. In this study, we examined the effect magnesium supplementation on metabolic profiles in hypomagnesemic obese and pre-diabetic patients in stage 2 and 3 of chronic kidney disease.

Why is it important?
An early optimisation of magnesium may delay or decrease the incidence of diabetes in pre-diabetic chronic kidney disease patients and return insulin resistance to normal in study patients. In this study, we showed that a 3-month oral administration of magnesium oxide improved the metabolic profile – and especially insulin sensitivity – in pre-diabetic and obese patients with stage 2 and 3 chronic kidney disease.
