While still many diabetologists -those who are keen on learning, sharing and writing their ideas on diabetes so as to  help those who are in need of a solution for their metabolic problem-  are extremely working on this world-wide epidemic, readers may respect that it is not a striking feature that hypomagnesemia is skipped with ignoring its contribution to the pathophysiology of this dysglycaemic problem. 

However, its role mentioned here as a stimulator of insulin resistance as well as cardiovascular other problems is noteworthy. 

The review is a nice gathering of the literature and remindful knowledge so that we may refresh our minds. But again owing to its high prevelance, magnesium deficiency alone seems not be a higher contributor for diabetes.
