Vitamin Deficiency Common In Diabetes
Something like three out of every five patients with type 2 diabetes show signs of vitamin D deficiency. Widespread screening for vitamin D deficiency or routine vitamin D supplementation should be seriously considered for people with diabetes according to a recent report. (Diabetic Nutrition and Diabetes Diet)

Good Fats and Bad Fats
Some fats are bad such as saturated fats and trans-fats. However, there's another kind of fat called essential fatty acids - and they are indeed essential. These unsaturated fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fats, make our cell membranes more flexible, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and reduce mortality from heart disease. (Diabetic Nutrition, Essential Fatty Acids, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure)

Flaxseed Oil Lowers Blood Pressure
Regularly eating a diet supplemented with flaxseed oil may lower blood pressure and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, according to a new study. (Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood Pressure, Diabetic Nutrition)

Tips to Reduce Triglycerides
You have your cholesterol levels under control, but now your doctor says your triglycerides are still high. Triglycerides, like cholesterol, are blood fats. Research suggests that high levels increase risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Learn what normal levels are and how to reach your goal. (Heart Health, Diabetic Nutrition)

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 )

Formula For A Healthy Smile
Having higher than normal blood sugar levels increases your risk of developing dental problems, such as tooth decay and loss, gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), periodontitis (infection of the gums), and other infections. Read more about what you can do to maintain healthy teeth and gums. (Diabetic Nutrition and Diabetes Care and Sign of Diabetes)

Benfotiamine
Benfotiamine is a specialized form of Vitamin B1 and has been recognized for its usefulness for those with neuropathy. There are implications that benfotiamine is more beneficial in dealing with peripheral neuropathy than other forms of B1. A number of studies, in fact, have borne this out. (diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, neuropathy treatment, benfotamine)

Carnosine, Acetyl L-Carnitine and Alpha-Lipoic Acid
It is well known that diabetics age prematurely. There is strong evidence that the proper dose of carnosine may help to prevent age-related conditions such as muscle atrophy, eye problems, and neurological degeneration. Numerous studies also reveal the  direct antiaging effects of acetyl-L-carnitine. Alpha-lipoic acid is a vital antioxidant that boosts the power of other antioxidants. Many studies document the benefits of alpha-lipoic acid in treating diabetes. (diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, diabetes management)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid Battles Diabetes
An analysis of recent studies confirms that alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) supplements reduce a variety of neuropathic symptoms common to diabetes, including pain, burning sensation and numbness, and may be even more effective when combined with other antioxidants. (preventing neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, diabetic neuropathy)

Inositol
Inositol is a water soluble B vitamin that is essential for helping the cells in the body communicate and is involved in cellular responses to the actions of certain body hormones and chemicals that are released from nerves, called neurotransmitters. Experiments are currently looking at altering the levels of inositol and other chemicals to reduce nerve damage in diabetes. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Diabetic Nutrition, Prevention Neuropathy)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid- Nature's Perfect Antioxidant
Alpha-lipoic acid is an approved drug in Germany for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. Although alpha-lipoic acid's primary effect in improving neuropathy is thought to be the result of its antioxidant effects, it has also been shown to lead to an improvement in blood sugar metabolism, improve blood flow to peripheral nerves, and actually stimulate the regeneration of nerve fibers. (diabetes treatment, diabetic nutrition, preventing neuropathy)

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)

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)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid: Extra Help Taming Diabetes
Researchers have discovered that the potent antioxidant, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, may be an effective treatment for a common complication of diabetes, known as diabetic neuropathy, which develops when high blood sugar levels damage delicate nerve endings. It may also help control blood sugar in diabetics, possibly by lowering insulin levels and increasing the transport of sugar into cells. (Diabetic Nutrition, Diabetic Product, Diabetic Neuropathy)

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)
