This is a retrospective study designed to determine whether there is any association between serum magnesium concentration [Mg2+] and the rate of renal function deterioration, as determined by the slope of serum creatinine reciprocals versus time (1/SCr-vs-t), in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM2).
