Waking Up With High Blood Glucose Levels
Morning readings can be so frustrating! Do you go to bed with a blood glucose of 120 mg/dL (6.6 mmol/L) and wake up with a blood glucose of 170 (9.4 mmol/L) or more? Is this happening in spite of following your diet, exercise and taking your medications as your doctor prescribed? Well, don't worry; all this may be happening due to the Dawn Phenomenon or the Somogyi Effect. (Diabetes Management and High Blood Sugar)

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)

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)

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)

Turn Back The Clock
Will supplements enable you to live longer? The research indicates that they can certainly help. How will you be able to tell as your biological clock moves forward? Pay attention to two clues – your energy levels (and a lack of fatigue) and your good health (in comparison to your peers). Based on the research, these are three of our top youth-preserving nutrients, along with some of the cutting-edge science that put them on our list. (Carnitine, Resveratrol, CoQ10)

For Diabetics, Heart Attacks Are Deadlier
A large analysis of clinical studies confirms what doctors have long known: People who have diabetes are at much greater risk of dying after a heart attack than those who don't have the disease, researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston say. (Heart Disease, Diabetic Complications, Severe Heart Attack)

Are Leg Cramps Caused By Diabetes?
Leg cramps can be caused by a variety of reasons such as deficiencies in vitamins such as calcium and magnesium as well as diabetic neuropathy. (Neuropathy, Leg Cramps, Diabetic Complications)

Fish: The Wonder Food
The secret ingredient in fish? Omega-3 fats. Here's why you need more of them. (Heart Disease, Diabetes, Fish Oil, Omega-3 Fats)

Antioxidant Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
A collaborative study between Mayo Clinic and a medical center in Russia found that alpha lipoic acid (ALA) significantly and rapidly reduces the frequency and severity of symptoms of the most common kind of diabetic neuropathy.  (Neuropathy and Diabetic Complications)

Pediatric Blood (Sugar) Glucose Test
Concerned that your child's blood glucose levels may not be normal? The most common use of the blood glucose test is to check for diabetes mellitus. The test is also used to see how well the body is metabolizing glucose and the function of organs involved in that process: the pancreas, the liver, and the receptors that bring glucose into cells. (Blood Glucose Testing, Juvenile Diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes, Blood Sugar Level)

Good Fats for Low-Carb Living
Your body needs EFAs (essential fatty acids) just as it needs vitamins and minerals. Essential fats are necessary for life, but they must be obtained through diet or supplementation because the body cannot make them. Learn more about why these essential fats are so important for optimal health. (Diabetes Nutrition, Fish Oil, Omega-3)

Diabetes: Dealing With Holidays
Diabetic nutrition can be a real challenge during holiday festivities. Diabetes food choices are reviewed with practical tips on how to maintain a normal blood sugar level. Sticking to a low carbohydrate diet does not mean missing all the fun!

Managing Allergies and Sinus Problems Effectively
The number of persons suffering from some form of allergy has continued to steadily rise for the last few decades. Conservatively, it is estimated that 70 million people suffer from allergies in the United States and another 40 million in Europe. The good news is that we can mitigate many of the symptoms caused via the allergic response, allowing the sufferer to oftentimes live a completely normal life, symptom free.

Diabetes-Related Skin Problems
Skin problems are common in people with diabetes. High levels of glucose in the blood provide an excellent breeding ground for bacteria and fungi, and can reduce the body's ability to heal itself.  Diabetic dermopathy, digital sclerosis, vitiligo, acanthosis nigricans and bullosis diabeticorum (diabetic blisters) are among the conditions discussed in this article. (Diabetes Information)  

Diet & Exercise: What They Can Do for Diabetes
The achievement of three basic goals can change the life of a Type 2 diabetic. The goals are: to improve fitness, to get dietary fat down to about 25 percent of calories, and to get the activity level up to about 30 minutes a day of moderate activity five to seven days a week. Slight weight loss can result in major benefits.
