Counting Sheep to Reverse the Clock: How Getting Enough Sleep Slows Aging
Getting adequate sleep each night is one of the cornerstones of maintaining optimal health. Most experts agree that getting 6-8 hours of restful, rejuvenating sleep each night is essential to maintaining optimal focus, concentration, mood and energy levels. (Cortisol, Human Growth Hormone, Immune System, Rejuvenating Sleep)

Role of Vitamin D Deficiency in Statin Induced Myalgia
Statin drugs are the most commonly used medications for reducing cholesterol levels. They help prevent cardiovascular disease through their cholesterol reducing effects. Statins are not free from side effects. They are well known to have the ability to induce muscle pain (myalgia). (Low Vitamin D, Cholesterol, Statins)

Nutritional Support For The Prostate Gland
Native American Indians gathered saw palmetto berries and ate them when they had urinary problems or poor urine stream flow. Many health claims have been made for these berries. In Germany, the saw palmetto berry is approved for the treatment of BPH and 80% of Germans use this and other natural treatments for BPH (prostate enlargement).

Women's Cardiovascular Health: Getting To The Heart Of The Matter
Heart disease is just as much of a women's health problem as it is a man's. In fact, tragically one out of every two women will develop, and die from, heart disease. This makes heart disease more of a threat to a women's health than breast cancer and all other forms of cancer combined. (Diabetic Complications, Heart Attack, Omega-3, B-Vitamins, Coenzyme Q10)

Sight Lines
In the U.S., 1 million blind adults ages 40 and older, and 2.4 million adults who are visually impaired, do without life's images. By 2020, there could be 5.5 million such cases, according to the National Eye Institute (NEI). Here's a rundown of the leading causes of blindness and vision impairment. (Diabetic Complications, Diabetic Retinopathy)

Carnitine - Fuel For High-Energy Living
What do college students, fitness enthusiasts and people who worry about getting older have in common? They-and many others-can benefit from L-carnitine, a nutrient found in many energy drinks and in dietary supplements designed to support exercise performance and a long life free of heart disease and other age-related maladies. (Diabetic Nutrition, Exercise, Heart Disease)

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)

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.

Low Blood Sugar - Hypoglycemia
When people first encounter the diet prescribed for hypoglycemia, they are often baffled by the ban on sugar. They have been given a diagnosis of low blood sugar and yet they must avoid sugar. Hypoglycemia is the opposite of diabetes, and diabetics cannot have sugar, therefore, surely the hypoglycemic sufferer must eat lots of sugar? This is a common misunderstanding.

Balancing Blood Sugar Metabolism
Scientific evidence continues to mount regarding the effectiveness of natural substances in normalizing blood sugar in diabetics. Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon and Cinnamon Extract show significant impact on normalizing blood glucose levels. (Insulin Resistance)

6 Ways To Make A Difference
Taking control of diabetes is a team project. Here are some suggestions to help you support and help your family and friends with diabetes. (Diabetes Management, Diabetes Education)

Watch Out For Kidney Disease
Diabetes is actually the leading cause of end-stage kidney disease in the U.S., and 20 to 30 percent of people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes will develop the early signs of kidney disease.  (Kidney Disease, Diabetic Complications)

All About Peripheral Arterial Disease
Peripheral arterial disease, also called PAD, occurs when blood vessels in the legs are narrowed or blocked by fatty deposits. Blood flow to your feet and legs decreases. If you have PAD, you have an increased risk for heart attack and stroke. An estimated one out of every three people with diabetes over the age of 50 have this condition. However, many of those with warning signs don't realize that they have PAD and therefore don't get treatment. (Diabetes Complications, Heart Attack, Stroke)

Why Trans Fat Is So Bad For You
An American Heart Association study released in 2002 showed that food cooked with trans fat clogs arteries quicker than food cooked in animal-based saturated fat. But trans fat has what researchers are beginning to agree is a more insidious function in the body: It actually reprograms how cells work, causing lifelong damage that can lead to diabetes, stroke, and possibly cancer.  (Diabetic Nutrition, Heart Disease, Syndrome X)

Diabetic Ketoacidosis
Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) can occur when you don't have enough insulin to meet your body's needs. Normally your body uses carbohydrate (glucose) for maintenance, but when there isn't enough insulin in your body, your cells can't access the glucose in your blood. Your body then resorts to burning fat in an unhealthy way. Your liver becomes involved in fat-burning, and the by-product is ketones. (Diabetic complications, High blood sugar level)
