Eating more food sources of magnesium, such as whole grains, nuts, and leafy green vegetables, lowers the risk of type II diabetes.

A long-term study evaluating the risk factors for diabetes suggests that a higher intake of magnesium-rich foods has a protective effect against diabetes in men and women. Researchers cited controllable risk factors for diabetes as low levels of "good cholesterol", sedentary lifestyle, obesity, and high blood pressure. Their conclusions support the dietary recommendation to increase consumption of major food sources of magnesium.
