Abstract

Background : Hypomagnesaemia and hyperleptinemia are common in patients with diabetes. Moreover, it has been demonstrated that leptin stimulates diuresis and natriuresis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between serum leptin, serum magnesium (Mg) and urinary Mg/urinary creatinine levels in patients with type 1 diabetes.
