Abstract: Magnesium deficiency has been found to be associated with microvascular disease in diabetes. Hypomagnesemia has been demonstrated in patients with diabetic retinopathy, lower levels of magnesium predicting a greater risk for diabetic retinopathy. In this, Hospital based Observational Study, 106 newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetes mellitus patients who had attended Diabetic clinic, Medicine OPD and were admitted in Medicine ward, were selected as per the inclusion and exclusion criteria for the study. The data for the purpose of study were collected in a predesigned Proforma. The mean HbA1c among cases was (8.43 ± 1.71). Controlled diabetes were grouped under HbA1c level < 7.There were 16 patients who have their HbA1c level in controlled range with mean serum magnesium level 2.17 ± 0.09 mg/dl. There were 90 patients in uncontrolled group with mean serum magnesium level 1.86 ± 0.17 mg/dl. (p< .001).
