Obesity is one of the most important modifiable risk factors for the non-communicable diseases (cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes), and is often associated with magnesium (Mg) deficiency. In this study we have analysed the characteristics of the anthropometric measures, blood pressure and glucose level, according to the cut off of serum Mg < 0.8 mmol/L (median of the sample) separately in male and female individuals. In this representative sample of obese, mostly middle aged adults, we have observed different pattern of analysed variables associated with classes of obesity and lower Mg levels.
