Abstract

Magnesium deficiency has been frequently described in both adults and children with diabets1. There have been contradictory findings regarding whether there is any relationship between the degree of diabetic control and the changes in magnesium content2. The role of Mg depletion in lipid peroxydation has recently been demonstrated3 and hypomagnesmea is estimated a risk factor in the occurrence of cardiovascular lesions4.
