OBJECTIVE We investigated whether serum magnesium (Mg2+) was prospectively associated with macro- or microvascular complications and mediated by glycemic control (hemoglobin A1c [HbA1c]), in type 2 diabetes (T2D). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We analyzed in 4,348 participants the association of serum Mg2+ with macrovascular disease and mortality (acute myocardial infarction [AMI], coronary heart disease [CHD], heart failure [HF], cerebrovascular accident [CVA], and peripheral arterial disease… 

Magnesium Depletion Score Predicts Diabetic Retinopathy Risk among Diabetes: Findings from NHANES 2005-2018.

TLDR
It is indicated that MDS levels are associated with DR risk and that magnesium supplementation is benefit to DR prevention and subgroup analysis revealed that high (Q3) amount magnesium supplements was associated with lower DR risk when MDS was none to low or middle level.

Magnesium increases insulin-dependent glucose uptake in adipocytes

TLDR
Mg2+ increases insulin-dependent glucose uptake in adipocytes and suggests that Mg2- deficiency may contribute to insulin resistance in people with T2D.

HDAC3 Inhibition Alleviates High-Glucose-Induced Retinal Ganglion Cell Death through Inhibiting Inflammasome Activation

TLDR
HDR related retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) death remained unclear but HDAC3 inhibitor demonstrated protective effects in neurodegeneration in DR through downregulation of NLRP3 activity and advanced pathway analyses showed thatHDAC3 inhibition inactivatedNLRP3 inflammasome and thus alleviated retinal inflammation.

Reduced serum magnesium is associated with the occurrence of diabetic macular edema in patients with diabetic retinopathy: A retrospective study

TLDR
Overall, a higher serum magnesium level was associated with a lower risk of DME in patients withDR, and patients with DR who used insulin were more likely to develop DME.
