That sounds teasing and very interesting.  Any idea when it will be released to the general public, Marty?

Thanks!

Yes, it costs.  Too much for me.  I couldn't read it either.

Marty - perhaps you could summarize it, then people would know whether they want to pay to read the entire article.  Thanks.

Re: Magnesium Study Regarding Diabetes

You can at least see the abstract here:

 

http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/early/2013/09/23/dc13-1397.abstract

 

For those who haven't tried to check out the link yet, the title of the article is:

 

Higher magnesium intake reduces risk of impaired glucose and insulin metabolism, and progression from prediabetes to diabetes in middle-aged Americans

Re: Magnesium Study Regarding Diabetes

I hate that....I was able to read the entire PDF right before I shared the link.  I don't have a subscription either.  Here is another study where I was able to click on the link to the full PDF and read the article:  http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/27/1/134.full and another article that includes the same Harvard study and a second from Harvard:  http://www.diabetesexplained.com/magnesium-and-diabetes.html

 

I cannot access the site now either...not how sure I got in last night.  Here is the link to where I first read about the study and found out it was published at Diabetes Care Journal  http://health.yahoo.net/articles/diabetes/managing-diabetes-magnesium

^ No worries, Marty. Sometimes strange things happen with Innerwebz links.

 

And thanks Molly for the abstract.
