Diabetes And Constipation: An Awkward But Real Issue
About one in every four diabetics experience frequent bouts of constipation, making it by far the most common gastrointestinal issue for people with diabetes. The problem afflicts both type 1 and type 2 diabetes sufferers, and is known to be significantly more prevalent among those diabetics who also suffer from nerve damage. (Diabetic Complications, Type 2 Diabetes, IBS, Nerve Damage)

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)

Beware of High Blood Pressure
Uncontrolled diabetes contributes to the accelerated buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis), and it plays a prominent role in the development of high blood pressure. High blood pressure (hypertension) is reported more often in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics than in the general population. (Diabetes Education and Diabetic Nutrition)

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)

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)

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)
