Alpha Lipoic Acid Reverses Nerve Damage In Diabetics
Nerve damage is one of diabetes' most devastating complications and affects more than 50 percent of all diabetics. Its typical course is relentlessly downhill and there are no effective medicines to treat it. But now there is hope. A study recently published in Diabetes Care reports that the antioxidant nutrient alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) can partly restore diabetic nerve function. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications)

Calcium and Vitamin D For Diabetes
While diet, exercise, weight loss, and medications are prescribed for people with diabetes, more Americans are turning to nutritional support for additional help. Studies confirm that vitamin D and calcium supplementation are associated with a reduced risk of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. (Diabetes Nutrition, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes)

Acetyl-L-Carnitine May Be Important for Nerve Health in Diabetic Patients
Recent research studies indicate that Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) may improve pain and nerve regeneration in patients with chronic diabetic neuropathy. These studies demonstrate that ALC treatment is effective in alleviating symptoms, particularly pain, and improves nerve fiber regeneration. (Neuropathy Symptoms, Neuropathy Product, Diabetic Nutrition)

Acetyl-L-Carnitine Improves Diabetic Neuropathy
Study shows that acetyl-L-carnitine not only improves the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy, but also helps regenerate nerve fibers and vibration perception. (Diabetic Neuropathy and Diabetes Research)

Vitamin E Helps Combat Heart Attacks For Those With Diabetes
A new study has indicated that about 40 percent of diabetic patients can reduce their risk of heart attacks and of dying from heart disease by taking vitamin E supplements.

Bowel Cancer Risk Higher for Men with Diabetes
Having diabetes apparently raises men's risk of developing colorectal cancer. After factoring in age and other variables, the researchers found that diabetes was associated with a 49 percent higher likelihood of developing both colon and rectal cancer. (Diabetic Complications, Colon Cancer)

More Exercise Equals Greater Benefits for Diabetics
People with type 2 diabetes can significantly improve their health and reduce medical costs by walking at least three miles each day, according to Italian researchers. Read more about the benefits of simply walking. (Diabetes Research and Exercise)

The Power of GLA
Science has established rather conclusively that GLA halts the otherwise inevitable advance of nerve damage caused by diabetes. GLA helps the nerves to heal. (Diabetic Neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, diabetic product )

Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Peripheral Neuropathy
There are probably more studies attesting to the benefits of  alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) for dealing with peripheral neuropathy than studies for any other nutrient. ALA is known as a "universal antioxidant." In addition to its remarkable abilities as a natural antioxidant, it is noted for protecting nerves from oxidative damage and inflammation. (preventing neuropathy, diabetic nutrition)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid
Researchers say that alpha-lipoic acid is important for diabetics. It is possible that it not only prevents nerve damage from oxidation, but also promotes glucose metabolism. In a study published in Diabetes Care, patients with adult-onset diabetes who were given lipoic acid experienced slight nerve regeneration, while patients taking a placebo showed continued deterioration. (diabetic neuropathy, neuropathy treatment)

Magnesium Deficiency
If you have type 2 diabetes and are experiencing leg cramps, chances are your body is screaming for magnesium. In fact, up to 80% of type 2 diabetics have a magnesium deficiency. (Leg Cramps, Magnesium Deficiency, Type 2 Diabetes)

Vitamin C: An Efficient Way To Lower Sorbitol Levels
Attempts to prevent sorbitol accumulation with drugs have failed due to severe side effects. In contrast, vitamin C is able to accomplish what these drugs could not - safe and effective inhibition of sorbitol accumulation. (Vitamin C, Sorbitol, Diabetes Nutrition)

More Fractures, Less Bone Density In Premenopausal Women with Diabetes
Premenopausal women who have type 1 diabetes should strongly consider preventive screening for osteoporosis, the researchers of a new study on bone density conclude.  (Women's Health, Diabetic Complications, Juvenile Diabetes)

Insulin Pumps
If you use insulin frequently, you have probably thought about getting an insulin pump from time to time. But maybe it seemed too costly or inconvenient. Now is the time for a second look at this diabetic product that has changed with the times.

Relationships Between Hyperglycemia and Cognitive Performance
Hyperglycemia is a common event among patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. While the cognitive-motor slowing associated with hypoglycemia is well documented, the acute effects of hyperglycemia have not been studied extensively, despite patients' reports of negative effects. This study prospectively and objectively assessed the effects of hyperglycemia on cognitive-motor functioning in subjects' natural environment. (Diabetes Research and Hyperglycemia)
