An estimated 23.6 million Americans —including one out of four people aged 60 or older—have Type 2 diabetes. Roughly 5.7 million of them don’t know it. And 57 million others have pre-diabetes.
However, there is evidence that magnesium-rich foods can help prevent Type-2 diabetes.
Adults with diabetes are two to four times more likely than others to have a stroke or to die of heart disease.
