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)

Cholesterol Cutter - Virgin Olive Oil
According to a recent report, adults who consume 25 milliliters--nearly 2 tablespoons--of virgin olive oil daily for just one week have less low-density lipoprotein LDL or "bad") cholesterol and higher levels of antioxidant compounds, particularly phenols, in their blood. (Diabetic Cooking and Diabetes Research)

Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Cinnamon Extract, Vanadium & Chromium
If you are trying to get your carbohydrate-craving and weight-storing chemistry under control, gymnema may be of benefit. Bitter melon can help by improving blood sugar balance and reducing the amount of sugars in the blood. A compound in cinnamon bark has been shown to increase glucose metabolism. Research on vanadium indicates that it may produce insulin-like activities in the body, making it of potential value for those with diabetes, insulin resistance, and metabolic syndrome. Chromium is thought to stimulate fat metabolism and to have a lowering effect on cholesterol and triglyceride levels. (Diabetic Nutrition, Diabetic Product)

Take Care Of Your Heart And More With Tocotrienols
Tocotrienols are involved in many reactions in the body. But they are especially important in protection against heart disease because they are antioxidants and also have the ability to inhibit cholesterol synthesis. (High Cholesterol, Heart Disease, Vitamin E, Tocotrienols)

Using Herbs to Manage High Blood Sugar
Sustainable blood sugar control is critical to a diabetic patient’s health over time. Often, as a diabetic patient ages, insulin-reducing medications begin to lose their effectiveness. Treatment with herbs, along with carefully controlled nutrition and daily exercise, can help diabetic patients keep blood sugar levels under control over the long term. (Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Pterocarpus marsupium, High Blood Sugar)

Thyroid & Metabolism
Many individuals are confused as to whether they have a low or underactive thyroid, or some type of thyroid condition such as hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, elevated thyroid autoantibodies, or Hashimotos thyroiditis. Interestingly, many people are simply suffering from rather simple nutritional deficiencies. (Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, Thyroid Disorders) 

Sugar Alcohol
Sugar-free candy as well as as other products using the term "sugar-free" should be evaluated for total carbohydrate content.  Sugar alcohols, though listed by their weight content within the food as listed in the Nutrition Facts panel, are not metabolized (broken down and used for energy) the way true sugars are.  Because sugar alcohols are incompletely absorbed, the FDA allows the labeling and assignment of less energy per gram to these nutritive sweeteners. (Diabetes Diet and Nutrition)

Omega-3 Acids Thought To Benefit Dry-Eye Patients
Omega-3 acids may help alleviate some of your dry-eye patients’ symptoms. (Dry Eye)

The Probiotic Revolution
An estimated 30 million Americans experience lactose intolerance. The digestive enzyme, lactase, needed to digest lactose is either not in their gastrointestinal tract or simply not functioning as well as it should. Symptoms include bloating, gas, stomach cramps, diarrhea and other intestinal discomforts after consuming dairy products.  
Probiotics are helpful for those suffering from the above-mentioned symptoms. (Lactose Intolerance, Diarrhea, Enzymes)

Managing Hypoglycemia - Helpful Supplements (Part II)
This article lists many supplements that are suggested as useful for hypoglycemia in the literature. Outlines the importance of the B vitamins in  metabolizing fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Calcium, chromium, magnesium, manganese, selenium, vitamin C, vitamin E and zinc are discussed.  (Low blood sugar)

Nature's Diabetes Defense
Taken regularly over time, certain herbs can help lower blood sugar, others improve cardiovascular health by lowering cholesterol and strengthening blood vessels, which are two crucial elements for people with type 2 diabetes. (Type 2 Diabetes, Cinnamon, Fennugreek, Gymnema)

Diabetics At Increased Risk Of Hearing Loss
Diabetics should be screened for hearing loss because they have twice the risk of developing hearing loss as are nondiabetics, researchers reported at the American Diabetes Association 67th Scientific Sessions (ADA). (Diabetic Complications, Hearing Loss, Deafness)

MicroManagement - Pay Attention to Vitamins and Minerals
An estimated 80 percent of American adults take nutritional supplements, primarily vitamins and minerals, or micronutrients.  The main reason? We need to compensate for nutritional inadequacies in the modern American diet, cited as a contributing factor in a variety of diseases from atherosclerosis and diabetes to high blood pressure and stroke. (Diabetes Diet and Diabetes Nutrition)

How to Read Food Labels
Food labels not only help you choose healthy foods, they can help you control your diabetes (diabeties). Learn what to look for in planning your diabetes diet.

Supplement Snapshot - Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC)
The strongest research of Acetyl L-Carnitine is for relief of diabetic neuropathy symptoms; some studies show pain relief and possible nerve regeneration. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Type 2 Diabetes)
