Men and Diabetes
Complications of diabetes in men can include sexual dysfunction, heart disease, diabetic retinopathy, intermittent claudication and neuropathy. Diabetes research has brought to light the importance of prevention;  including improved blood glucose control, blood pressure control and improved control of cholesterol and lipids.

Slight Weight Loss Reduces Diabetes Risk Dramatically
When a person is overweight, insulin cannot work as effectively to keep blood glucose levels normal because the body becomes resistant to the action of its own insulin. Lifestyle modification can reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes by 58% in people at high risk for the disease. (Type 2 Diabetes Diet)

Diet & Exercise: What They Can Do for Diabetes
The achievement of three basic goals can change the life of a Type 2 diabetic. The goals are: to improve fitness, to get dietary fat down to about 25 percent of calories, and to get the activity level up to about 30 minutes a day of moderate activity five to seven days a week. Slight weight loss can result in major benefits.

Women and Diabetes
For women who do not currently have diabetes, pregnancy brings the risk of gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes develops in 2% to 5% of all pregnancies but disappears when a pregnancy is over. Women who have had gestational diabetes are at an increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes later in life.

Hyperglycemia (in Juvenile Diabetes)
Diabetic adolescents are especially susceptible to hyperglycemia, since hormonal levels are in flux and many adolescents exhibit erratic eating and sleeping patterns. Be able to recognize the signs of hyperglycemia. (Diabetic child) 

Borderline Diabetes
Although borderline diabetes is not classed as diabetes,  the risk of developing other diabetic complications such as coronary heart disease is equal to that of any patient in the diabetic category.

Diabetes Mellitus: Causes and Symptoms
Definition and Description of Diabetes Mellitus. Know the conditions that can be a sign of diabetes. Diabetes information with a Discussion of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. (diabetes type II) Risk factors for developing sugar diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes Management
Because your body no longer makes insulin, insulin injections play a big role in your diabetes care plan. News from the American Diabetes Association advises that your type of insulin therapy should relate directly to your health and your lifestyle choices. Diabetis care advice.

Diabetes and Omega-3
The essential fatty acids also affect the ability of the body's cells to respond to insulin. In a 1993 study, Australian researchers learned that insulin resistance is related to what kinds of fatty acids make up the cell membranes. The more Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids there are in the cell membranes of adult diabetics, the more their tissues respond to insulin.  Learn more about how the essential fatty acids can help in managing diabetes. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Research)

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)

Choosing an Oral Diabetes Medication
Generally, you will not use an oral agent if you have type I diabetes. They are usually only prescribed for people with type II diabetes.  Not everyone with type II diabetes will be helped by oral diabetes medications. Cautions for use and for drug interactions are addressed.  (Diabetes type ii)

Treating Diabetes With Insulin
A discussion of the different types of insulin, where it comes from, insulin pumps and jet spray injectors. Diabetes education on how to mange your prescription and where to store your insulin. (Diabetes information)

Exercise and Diabetes
Exercise is very important in managing diabetes. Exercise improves your body's use of insulin. Blood glucose levels are affected by exercise, so be aware of general exercise guidelines and precautions for diabetics as you begin your fitness program. (Diabetes Information)

High Blood Pressure and Diabetes; A Deadly Duo
High blood pressure (or hypertension) isn't called "the silent killer" for nothing. Oftentimes people will have it and not even know it until it's too late.  For most people with diabetes, keeping blood pressure below 130/80 will help prevent problems.

Diabetes - The Inflammation Syndrome Connection
Many nutritional supplements can lessen the inflammation in diabetes, but it is essential that the underlying diet be corrected. That said, a key objective of supplementation should be to lower glucose levels and improve insulin function, which should in turn reduce inflammation. Helpful supplements include chromium, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and the omega-3 fatty acids. (Diabetes Nutrition, Inflammation, Arthritis, Heart Disease)
