Magnesium Intake Effect on Diabetes

Introduction
Certain foods and nutrients may be associated with the onset of diabetes. This particular study focuses on the effects of magnesium on the incidence of diabetes, as measured through systemic inflammation and insulin resistance. Magnesium is a mineral that is found in abundance in the body. It is essential for hundreds of biochemical processes, such as maintaining muscle and nerve function, steadying heart rhythm, supporting the immune system, and ensuring bone health (NIH). Prior studies have examined the effects of magnesium supplements on the risk of diabetes, but findings have been inconclusive. Kim and colleagues investigated the relationship between magnesium intake and the incidence of diabetes in a cohort of young American adults participating in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) study (Kim et al., 2604). The authors also examined the extent to which magnesium intake was associated with systemic inflammation markers. These included high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), fibrinogen, and the homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR).

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

The clinic resumed treatments on May 7th with limited hours and new guidelines, and we are slowly working towards full-time hours. Please check the Book Appointment page for available days and time slots, or call us. 

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
