Fatigue: Why Am I So Tired?
If you have diabetes, your pancreas either stops making insulin or doesn't use it efficiently. With insulin resistance, your body can't absorb glucose properly, which means you won't have any energy. In addition to feeling tired, signs of diabetes include being very thirsty and hungry, having to urinate frequently, and losing weight. How can you get your energy back?

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)

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)

Zinc
Zinc, the second most abundant trace mineral in the body, plays critical roles in glucose regulation, the proper function of insulin, and weight control. (Syndrome X, Insulin Resistance, Diabetes Nutrition)

Chromium
In addition to helping to create normal blood sugar levels and regulating your cholesterol - without the side effects of diabetes medication - chromium may also improve muscle tone and burn fat, according to studies published in Sports Medicine.

Study Links High Blood Sugar And Cancer Risk
A large European study has found that people with high blood sugar levels are at an increased risk of developing cancer, even when they do not have overt signs of diabetes. This study adds to evidence that abnormal sugar metabolism (which usually includes insulin resistance, high sugar levels and high insulin levels) can be cancer-promoting. (Cancer, High Blood Sugar, Insulin Resistance, Diabetic Complications)

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)

Bowel Cancer Risk Higher for Men with Diabetes
Having diabetes apparently raises men's risk of developing colorectal cancer. After factoring in age and other variables, the researchers found that diabetes was associated with a 49 percent higher likelihood of developing both colon and rectal cancer. (Diabetic Complications, Colon Cancer)

Bitter Melon Has Potent Anti-Diabetes Effects
Substances isolated from bitter melon, a plant eaten and used medicinally in much of Asia, could provide the basis of new drugs for treating diabetes and obesity, an international team of researchers reports. (Bitter Melon, Diabetes, Obesity)

Diabetes Risk Falls As Magnesium Intake Increases
Getting enough magnesium in your diet could help prevent diabetes, a new study suggests. Consuming 200 milligrams of magnesium for every 1,000 calories reduces risk of diabetes by 47%. (Insulin Resistance, Inflammation, Whole Grains)

"Little-Known" Natural Remedies for Diabetes
There is extensive research regarding herbs that positively affect blood sugar.  Learn about 5 important herbs for diabetic health.  (Diabetes management, diabetic product)

Curb Sugar Cravings
Hunger suddenly strikes. You need food, and you need it now. You rummage for that long-lost candy bar buried somewhere in your desk - anything to get a sugar fix. That rapid rise in blood glucose, along with the attendant release of the "feel-good" hormone serotonin, may make you feel better temporarily, but when your glucose levels soon nose-dive, you'll return to your low-serotonin state - a prime candidate for yet more sugar cravings.

LADA or Diabetes 1.5
Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA), also called slow-onset diabetes or diabetes 1.5, has similarities both to type 1 and type 2. Often it is not recognized as LADA or type 1.5, because at first it looks like and reacts positively to treatments for type 2. However, it ends up revealing itself as an autoimmune form of diabetes, more like type 1. (Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes Education)

Ten Dietary Principles To Live By
Reverse Metabolic Syndrome is a nutritional disease, the most straightforward way to prevent or reverse it is by improving your eating habits.  (Reverse Metabolic Syndrome, Syndrome X, Insulin Resistance)

Sweet Sleep: It's Key To Your Quality Of Life
Research has shown that a lack of sleep causes a "sleep debt," which increases insulin resistance and causes more stress hormones to be released. The result: higher blood sugar levels. Sleep plays a critical role in your personal maintenance program.

metabolic syndrome
the tendency of several conditions to occur together, including obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes or pre-diabetes, hypertension, and high lipids.

hyperinsulinemia (HY-per-IN-suh-lih-NEE-mee-uh)
a condition in which the level of insulin in the blood is higher than normal. Caused by overproduction of insulin by the body. Related to insulin resistance.

acanthosis nigricans  (uh-kan-THO-sis NIH-grih-kans)
a skin condition characterized by darkened skin patches; common in people whose body is not responding correctly to the insulin that they make in their pancreas (insulin resistance). This skin condition is also seen in people who have pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes.

insulin resistance
the body's inability to respond to and use the insulin it produces. Insulin resistance may be linked to obesity, hypertension, and high levels of fat in the blood.

premixed insulin
a commercially produced combination of two different types of insulin. See 50/50 insulin and 70/30 insulin.
