Supplementation with magnesium lowers CRP in prediabetics

May 23 2014. An article published online on May 7, 2014 in the Archives of Medical Research reports the results of a double-blinded trial of subjects with prediabetes and low magnesium levels which found a benefit for magnesium supplementation in reducing C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation.

The trial randomized 62 men and women between the ages of 18 to 65 years with newly diagnosed prediabetes who had magnesium levels below 0.74 micromoles per liter (mmol/L). Participants received an oral magnesium chloride solution containing 382 milligrams magnesium or a placebo daily for three months, and both groups received advice concerning physical activity and the components of a healthy diet. Plasma glucose, serum magnesium and high-sensitivity (hsCRP) were measured before and after the treatment period.

By the end of the study, serum magnesium levels were higher, and fasting and two hour post-load glucose levels were lower among those who received magnesium in comparison with the placebo. While both groups experienced a decline in CRP, the decrease was significantly greater among those who received magnesium.

Authors Luis E. Simental-Mendía and colleagues note that magnesium deficiency has been proposed as an early factor in the activation of the inflammatory response. They recommend further clinical trials to establish whether magnesium deficiency plays a causative role in inflammation and to determine its mechanisms.

"Our results show that oral magnesium supplementation significantly decreases hsCRP levels in apparently healthy subjects with prediabetes and hypomagnesemia," the authors write. "Taking into account that elevated hsCRP is related to glucose metabolic disorders, our finding may have important implications in the policies focused in its prevention."
