From California, USA:

I just saw a documentary about taking magnesium or food rich with it to reverse the need for insulin supplements. Would awith it to reverse the need for insulin supplements. Would anybody care to comment on this?


There's a long discussion about this subject entitled Magnesium Supplementation in the Treatment of Diabetes which is reprinted on the Internet from a Consensus Statement of the American Diabetes Association.

In brief, they say that magnesium might be helpful for some people with diabetes, but the data doesn't support routine testing or routine supplementation.
