Serum Magnesium Level is Negatively Associated with Fasting Serum Glucose Level in Korean Adults.
Summary of "Serum Magnesium Level is Negatively Associated with Fasting Serum Glucose Level in Korean Adults."
Several studies have observed an inverse association between serum magnesium and fasting glucose levels. However, there have been sparse data on Koreans. The present study was designed to evaluate the association between serum magnesium and fasting serum glucose levels in Korean adults. A total of 949 Korean adults who visited an outpatient at a university hospital were included in this study. We compared mean values of clinical data according to the tertile of serum magnesium level using analysis of covariance. Association between serum magnesium and fasting glucose levels was evaluated using multiple regression analysis. Odds ratio (OR) was calculated to determine the association between hypomagnesemia and abnormal glucose metabolism. Fasting serum glucose levels decreased significantly from the lowest to the highest tertile of serum magnesium level (108.0 ± 1.4, 106.5 ± 2.1, 102.5 ± 1.7 mg/dl, respectively, p = 0.015), whereas blood pressure and lipid profile showed no significant associations. Serum magnesium level was negatively associated with fasting serum glucose level (β = -0.114, p = 0.001). Participants with hypomagnesemia had significantly higher OR for abnormal glucose metabolism compared to those with normomagnesaemia (OR = 2.28, 95%CI 1.29-4.02). There was a negative association between serum magnesium and fasting glucose levels in Korean adults. In addition, hypomagnesemia was associated with abnormal glucose metabolism.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Immune complex disease caused by the administration of foreign serum or serum proteins and characterized by fever, lymphadenopathy, arthralgia, and urticaria. When they are complexed to protein carriers, some drugs can also cause serum sickness when they act as haptens inducing antibody responses.
All blood proteins except albumin ( = SERUM ALBUMIN, which is not a globulin) and FIBRINOGEN (which is not in the serum). The serum globulins are subdivided into ALPHA-GLOBULINS; BETA-GLOBULINS; and GAMMA-GLOBULINS on the basis of their electrophoretic mobilities. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of magnesium in the diet, characterized by anorexia, nausea, vomiting, lethargy, and weakness. Symptoms are paresthesias, muscle cramps, irritability, decreased attention span, and mental confusion, possibly requiring months to appear. Deficiency of body magnesium can exist even when serum values are normal. In addition, magnesium deficiency may be organ-selective, since certain tissues become deficient before others. (Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 12th ed, p1936)
The first alpha-globulins to appear in mammalian sera during development of the embryo and the dominant serum proteins in early embryonic life. They reappear in the adult serum during certain pathologic states, primarily hepatocellular carcinoma. They may also be elevated in the amniotic fluid and maternal serum during pregnancy in ANENCEPHALY.
Hyperthyroxinemia, Familial Dysalbuminemic
An inherited autosomal dominant trait characterized by abnormally elevated levels of total serum THYROXINE; (T4) in euthyroid patients with abnormal SERUM ALBUMIN that binds T4 with enhanced affinity. The serum levels of free T4, free T3, and TSH are normal. It is one of several T4 abnormalities produced by non-thyroid disorder. This condition is due to mutations of the ALB gene on CHROMOSOME 4.
Vanadium is an element whose role as a micronutrient and hypoglycaemic drug has yet to be fully clarified. The present study was undertaken to investigate the bioavailability and tissue distribution o...
Several oral or intravenous drug administrations can cause abnormalities in serum magnesium concentration. Most of drug-induced hypomagnesemia derives from a loss of the mineral in the urine by facili...
Infusion of Mg for therapeutic purposes is still a matter for debate. Dosages vary considerably, yet subclinical effects on normal physiology are largely ignored. In human and animal models, interacti...
Objective. It has been revealed that low serum magnesium (Mg) is often associated with insulin resistance (IR), cardiovascular problems, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension. Patients with polycystic...
