Is there a link between magnesium deficiency and insulin resistance?

There appears to be a clear connection between lack of cellular magnesium and metabolic problems such as insulin resistance (IR).  In humans it has been established that Magnesium deficiency leads to Insulin Resistance and/or Diabetes as stated in the book “The Magnesium Factor”.
