Magnesium Supplementation in Type II Diabetes

2016-12-27 22:55:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study aims to determine how a 12-week magnesium supplementation with 400 mg magnesium from organic magnesium citrate affects blood glucose control and insulin resistance within patients with type 2 diabetes (HbA1c> 6%) and how the expression of certain Mg-sensitive transporting genes is affected .

Description

The examinations are carried out in 50 subjects aged 20-80 years with existing type 2 diabetes (HbA1c> 6%). The target parameters are determined in the blood. Blood sampling takes place at confinement, after 6 weeks and at the end of the study (week 12). In addition, blood pressure is determined and general health condition of each subject is recorded by a standardized questionnaire (SF-36).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Magnesium chloride. An inorganic compound consisting of one magnesium and two chloride ions. The compound is used in medicine as a source of magnesium ions, which are essential for many cellular activities. It has also been used as a cathartic and in alloys.

Magnesium oxide (MgO). An inorganic compound that occurs in nature as the mineral periclase. In aqueous media combines quickly with water to form magnesium hydroxide. It is used as an antacid and mild laxative and has many nonmedicinal uses.

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)

Inorganic compounds that contain magnesium as an integral part of the molecule.

A generic term for a variety of compounds that contain silicon, oxygen, and magnesium, and may contain hydrogen. Examples include TALC and some kinds of ASBESTOS.
