Diabetes, Kidney Disease and Magnesium – Carolyn Dean MD ND

Globally, as of 2015, the International Diabetes Federation, reported an estimated 415 million adults are living with diabetes. Yes, that’s more than the population of the U.S. The incidence of diabetes is increasing rapidly, and by 2030, this number will likely double.

Many people live with type 2 diabetes for a long period of time without being aware of their condition. By the time they figure it out the complications of this condition may already be present.

One of the signs of diabetes is low magnesium; it’s in all the medical texts but because we never learned about the importance of minerals in medical school, doctors do not routinely test for magnesium. And if they do, they use the wrong test. The serum magnesium test is highly inaccurate. But, luckily you can order your own Magnesium RBC test without a doctor’s prescription online at Request A Test. It’s only $49.00, but you want to have an optimum magnesium level of 6.0-6.5mg/dL.

Diabetes damages the kidneys and is the leading cause of kidney disease. However, when the kidneys are impaired, doctors tell their patients not to take magnesium, which is what they actually need to heal their kidneys. Dr. Dean has written articles and blogs about the need for magnesium in kidney disease and is in the process of updating those texts with the new information she has written for the 2017 revision of The Magnesium Miracle which is be released in August of this year [2017].

Tonight on our internet based radio show, we’ll  be talking with Dr. Carolyn Dean about how Diabetes, Kidney Disease, and Magnesium along with a wide range of health topics and safe solutions.
