Abstract Introduction: Diabetes Mellitus is the most common metabolic disease in children. This is an insulin deficiency disease which causes changes in some body ions such as serum Mg. Objective: Determine the Serum Magnesium Level(SML) in diabetic children and compare it with non diabetic children and determination relation betweens(SML) with HbA1C, BMI, familial history and duration of diabetes. Materials and Methods: It is a descriptive cross sectional study which was done on 50 type 1 diabetic children who came to diabetic clinic of Rafsanjan and 50 healthy children (without diabetes, malnutrition and diarrhea ) as control group. Results: The results of this study showed that 68% of cases and 78% of control group had SLM more then 2mg/dl and none of them had serum SML than 1.3 mg/dl. But SML in diabetic children was lower than normal group. The SML in diabetic children who had poor control of their diabetes was lower than those who were in good control. There wasn't any significant difference between diabetes duration and SML. Conclusion: Results showed that SML in diabetic children was lower than normal group, but in both group it was in normal range. In this study, SML was in lowest limit normal in diabetic children. Since magnesium is an important intercellular ion, so the intercellular assessment is necessary.
