Magnesium, Genetic Risk, and Risk Factors for Diabetes and Heart Disease.

Hruby, Adela.

Abstract: Background: Magnesium (Mg) is a vital but chronically under-consumed nutrient and low intake has been linked to type 2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Recent, novel genetic findings related to fasting glucose (FG) and insulin (FI) have pointed to a diverse set of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that elevate risk of disordered glycemic homeostasis or Mg status.
