Alpha Lipoic Acid Reverses Nerve Damage In Diabetics
Nerve damage is one of diabetes' most devastating complications and affects more than 50 percent of all diabetics. Its typical course is relentlessly downhill and there are no effective medicines to treat it. But now there is hope. A study recently published in Diabetes Care reports that the antioxidant nutrient alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) can partly restore diabetic nerve function. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications)

The Diabetic Diet
Your diabetic diet should be a well-balanced meal plan tailored to your individual needs, tastes, activity level and life style. Good diabetic meal planning  will include carbohydrates, proteins and fats in amounts that will promote good diabetes control.  Your dietitian may use diabetic food exchange lists to help you plan meals and snacks. (Diabetes Food and Diabetes Cooking) 

GLA: The "Good" Omega-6
There is a fat in the omega-6 family which is a powerful key to vibrant health and radiant beauty: GLA, or gamma linolenic acid. In fact, your body needs the right balance of omega-3s as well as GLA from the omega-6 family, much like it needs the proper combination of vitamins and minerals for smooth-running metabolic functions. (GLA, Cardiovascular Health, Diabetes, Arthritis, Cholesterol)

Hearing Loss
Hearing does not have to decrease as one ages. Good nutrition helps maintain good hearing. (Diabetes, Hearing Loss, Deafness, Aging, Good Nutrition, Zinc, Tinnitus)

The Low-Carb Way to Weight Loss
Carbohydrates are one of three basic macronutrients needed to sustain life (the other two are protein and fat). But eating too many carbohydrates, especially refined carbs - can cause weight gain and can adversely affect your health.  Glycemic index guidelines to help you plan a healthy diabetes diet. (Diabetes type ii and Diabetes type i)

Cinnamon
Cinnamon appears to fight inflammation and help insulin, a hormone that controls blood sugar. (Type 2 Diabetes and Diabetes Research)

Take These With Your Prescriptions
If you're taking any of these prescriptions, be sure that you're also supplementing with the appropriate nutrients. (Diabetic Complications, Statins, Blood Thinners, Antibiotics)

Glucose Intolerance Reversed by Carnitine Supplement
Supplementing with the nutrient carnitine helps obese animals to clear the extra sugar in their blood, something they had trouble doing on their own, researchers at Duke University Medical Center, North Carolina, report. A team led by Deborah Muoio, Ph.D., of the Duke Sarah W. Stedman Nutrition and Metabolism Center, also performed tests on human muscle cells that showed supplementing with carnitine might help older people with prediabetes, diabetes, and other disorders that make glucose (sugar) metabolism difficult. (Glucose Intolerance, Carnitine, Prediabetes)

Drug Induced Coenzyme Q10 Deficiency
The benefits of pharmaceutical therapy are widespread and in many cases life-saving. All of us, however, are familiar with the fact that drug therapy often results in side-effects. How often do we watch a television commercial for a new pharmaceutical agent and find that the last ten seconds consists of a rapid fire, voice over announcement listing a whole host of side-effects?  Or read a magazine advertisement with one page of ad copy and 2 pages of fine print warnings? We've discovered that in many cases these side-effects are "drug-induced nutrient deficiencies"! (CoQ10, Statin, Beta-Blocker, Diuretic, Depression)

Herbal Approaches to Diabetes and Hyperglycemia
Ayurvedic botanicals often succeed where conventional medicine fails. Helping improve indicators associated with hyperglycemia and diabetes is one such area. Three herbals important in this effort are Gymnema sylvestre, Momordica charantia, and Tinospora cordifolia. (Gulvel and Bitter Melon)

Diabetic Recipes - Holiday Dessert Ideas
Delicious sweets to please the whole family during the holidays and maintain your diabetic meal planning including Carrot Cake, Pumpkin Pecan Pudding, Cinnamon Oranges, Baked Spiced Pears, Almond Sugar Cookies, Applesauce-Raisin Cookies. (Diabetic Cookie, Diabetic Cake Recipe, Diabetic Dessert Recipe)

Prevent & Protect - Control Blood Sugar To Prevent Complications
Three out of five people with diabetes have one or more complications from the disease. In the United States, more than 200,000 people a year die from all types of diabetic complications. (Diabetic Complications, Heart Disease, Stroke, Neuropathy)

Portion Distortion
Americans are expanding at the same disturbing pace. Some 60 million--one-third of all adults--are obese (defined as more than 20 percent above their desirable weight), according to the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). (Obesity, Diabetes, Heart Disease)

Diabetics Can Count On Chromium
Chromium, an essential dietary mineral, plays a central role in how the body uses insulin to burn sugars, carbs, fats, and proteins for energy. Because of this insulin-enhancing role, chromium can be especially helpful in controlling, and sometimes reversing, some of the symptoms of prediabetes and type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes. (Chromium, Type 2 Diabetes, Syndrome X)

Probiotics and Prebiotics
Probiotics may get star treatment, but prebiotics are their best supporting nutrient. Here's why you may benefit from both. (Friendly Flora, Good Bacteria, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, IBS)
