Gymnema Sylvestre – The #1 Natural Enemy of Diabetes
Studies show that Gymnema is a natural treatment for diabetes.  Case reports and studies involving both humans and animals suggest that it may work in several ways to help control both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

A1C - An Important Blood Test
The fasting blood sugar test (FBS), which is still the most commonly performed test for Diabetes, does not reflect the true picture of diabetic control over a long period of time. The glycated hemoglobin a1c test is a more accurate diabetes test to reflect overall blood sugar control. (A1C or aIc, blood sugar testing)

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)

Low Vitamin D Linked to Poor Diabetes Control
Vitamin D deficiency, long suspected to be a risk factor for glucose intolerance, is commonly found in people with poor diabetes control, according to a new study. (Type 2 Diabetes, A1c, Insulin Resistance)

Blood Sugar Testing
What is a good blood sugar range for a person with diabetes? How do you check your blood sugar? When should you check your blood sugar? What is your A1c test? Learn the answers to these and other important questions regarding blood sugar testing. (Normal blood sugar level and Diabetes Management)

A Growing Epidemic: Taking Aim at Managing Blood Sugar
The loss of insulin sensitivity can be decreased with the right nutrients. Numerous vitamins, minerals, herb and antioxidants have been studied for their efficacy at promoting healthy blood sugar and protecting cells from the damage of elevated blood sugars with favorable results. (Chromium, Fenugreek, Gymnema sylvestre, Vanadyl)

ADA Blood Sugar Goals for Diabetes
Are you wondering what your blood sugar goals should be? These goals provided by the American Diabetes Association are determined from studies that examined the effects of near-normal blood sugar levels on the rates of diabetic complications. (Blood Sugar Level and Diabetes Management)

Type 1/Type 2 - Cold Weather Increases A1Cs
A team of researchers working in Veterans Health Administration centers across the country has found a link between cold weather and higher A1C levels. Read more about this study of more than 272,722 veterans with diabetes. (Diabetes Research, blood sugar level, alc)

Sleep Apnea and Diabetes
Sleep apnea is a disorder in which the throat muscles relax during sleep, obstructing the airway a causing brief but frequent breathing interruptions. Obesity-a common problem for people with type 2-is a major risk factor for developing this sleep disorder. Also, previous research has shown that sleep apnea is independently linked to glucose intolerance and insulin resistance-the primary characteristics of type 2.  Find out more about this interesting research. (Diabetes Research and Sleep Apnea)

De-Stress To Decrease Risk Of Diabetes -
Researchers are slowly zeroing in on the long-suspected link between stress and type-2 diabetes, which accounts for 90 percent of all diabetes cases. Anxiety is now believed to exacerbate diabetes by raising levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which regulates insulin and blood-sugar levels. (Stress, Type 2 Diabetes)

Diabetes And Heart Disease
If you have diabetes, you have a high risk for having a heart attack or a stroke. You are more likely to get heart disease--and at a younger age--than someone without diabetes. There are things you can do to reduce your risk for heart disease. Learning about the ABCs of diabetes can help you control your condition and stay healthy. (Diabetes Education and Diabetes Management)

Gymnema Sylvestre
Gymnema sylvestre, also known as gurmar is another herb from India's Ayurvedic medical traditions that has been used for centuries to neutralize excess sugar. As with many other Ayurvedic herbs, its properties have been confirmed by scientific studies. (Diabetes Nutrition, Insulin-Dependent Diabetes)

Eye Disease In African Americans
Time and again, studies show that poor blood glucose control increases the risk of complications such as diabetic retinopathy, a common cause of blindness. Now, a new caveat-the risk is particularly high in African Americans. (Retinopathy, Diabetic Complications, Type 1 Diabetes)

Other Important Supplements - Essential Fatty Acids
There are two main EFA groups: omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. EFAs are components of cell membranes the body needs but cannot manufacture itself. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications, Essential Fatty Acids)

Why You Shouldn't Wait
People with type 2 diabetes - often bungle, misunderstand, or simply ignore the crucial moment when blood sugar tests reveal that diabetes is progressing. (Diabetic Complications, Heart Attack, Stroke)

A1C 
a test that measures a person's average blood glucose level over the past 2 to 3 months. Hemoglobin (HEE-mo-glo-bin) is the part of a red blood cell that carries oxygen to the cells and sometimes joins with the glucose in the bloodstream. Also called hemoglobin A1C or glycosylated (gly-KOH-sih-lay-ted) hemoglobin, the test shows the amount of glucose that sticks to the red blood cell, which is proportional to the amount of glucose in the blood.

conventional therapy
a term used in clinical trials where one group receives treatment for diabetes in which A1C and blood glucose levels are kept at levels based on current practice guidelines. However, the goal is not to keep blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible, as is done in intensive therapy. Conventional therapy includes use of medication, meal planning and exercise, along with regular visits to health care providers.
