From Seattle, Washington, USA:

I have heard that magnesium helps promote sleep/calmness in children and high blood sugars can drain magnesium levels. Is there validity to this?


There is not much scientific rationale to recommend routine magnesium supplementation for young children with diabetes at present and certainly not for promoting sleep.
