The article focuses on a study that assesses the effectiveness of long-term selenium supplementation on the incidence of new onset type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). It states that the risk for type 2 DM was higher across all subgroups for those taking selenium. Thus, the adverse effect of long-term selenium supplementation on glucose metabolism has been concluded.
