Sleep Apnea and Diabetes
Sleep apnea is a disorder in which the throat muscles relax during sleep, obstructing the airway a causing brief but frequent breathing interruptions. Obesity-a common problem for people with type 2-is a major risk factor for developing this sleep disorder. Also, previous research has shown that sleep apnea is independently linked to glucose intolerance and insulin resistance-the primary characteristics of type 2.  Find out more about this interesting research. (Diabetes Research and Sleep Apnea)

Higher Body Iron Stores Predict Future Risk of Women Developing Type 2 Diabetes
In the first large study to assess iron stores and risk of type 2 diabetes in an apparently healthy population, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) found that higher iron stores were associated with significantly elevated risk of type 2 diabetes, independent of other known diabetes risk factors. (Diabetes Research, Type 2 Diabetes)

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)

A Growing Epidemic: Taking Aim at Managing Blood Sugar
The loss of insulin sensitivity can be decreased with the right nutrients. Numerous vitamins, minerals, herb and antioxidants have been studied for their efficacy at promoting healthy blood sugar and protecting cells from the damage of elevated blood sugars with favorable results. (Chromium, Fenugreek, Gymnema sylvestre, Vanadyl)

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)

Slight Weight Loss Reduces Diabetes Risk Dramatically
When a person is overweight, insulin cannot work as effectively to keep blood glucose levels normal because the body becomes resistant to the action of its own insulin. Lifestyle modification can reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes by 58% in people at high risk for the disease. (Type 2 Diabetes Diet)

Walk For Your Heart
Exercise doesn't have to be strenuous to be effective. The "no pain, no gain" attitude can sometimes discourage people from exercising at all. While it's true that aerobic exercise (dancing, swimming, jogging, and bicycling) gives the heart and lungs a continuous workout, brisk walking is also beneficial-and much easier to work into anyone's schedule. (Diabetes Education and Exercise)

Those With PCOS Can Benefit from Lo Carb Diet
Women with Polycystic ovary syndrome have an increased risk of developing insulin resistance, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, lipid abnormalities and endometrial carcinoma (cancer). Many non-medical approaches can relieve or reduce specific symptoms. Many women with PCOS follow a low-carbohydrate diet designed to lose or maintain their weight.

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)

Women and Diabetes
For women who do not currently have diabetes, pregnancy brings the risk of gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes develops in 2% to 5% of all pregnancies but disappears when a pregnancy is over. Women who have had gestational diabetes are at an increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes later in life.

Glycemic Index: New Way to Count Carbs?
The latest news in diabetes diet planning is that even foods with the same carbohydrate content can trigger a wide difference in blood sugar levels. Diabetes researchers have developed a system for measuring  the glycemic index of foods. Healthy carbs are those with a low glycemic index.  This information takes the exchange diet to another level to help establish a diabetic food list that helps normalize blood sugar.

Even Diet Soft Drinks Are Associated With An Increased Risk Of Heart Disease
Diet soft drinks are lower in calories, but are still associated with a greater risk of heart disease as are sugar-laden sodas, according to a new study. (Diabetic Diet, Metabolic Syndrome, Artificial Sweeteners, Diet Soda)

Breastfeeding Appears To Reduce Diabetes Risk
Women who breastfeed for more than six months might reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes, says a new study thought to be the first to make such a connection. (Type ii Diabetes, Diabetes Prevention)

Explaining About Diabetes
Diabetes - or to give it its full name, diabetes mellitus - is a common condition in which the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body is unable to use it properly. This is because the body's method of converting glucose into energy is not working as it should. Learn more about the two main types of diabetes. (Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes Symptoms)

Managing Hypoglycemia - Basic Guidelines (Part I)
Hypoglycemia can be the precursor to Type II diabetes and other insulin resistance related ailments. The good news is that treatment is easy  to understand, and you can manage it yourself.  Best of all, the treatment is without risk, whether or not you actually have hypoglycemia because the treatment is simply a change in diet. (Low blood sugar)

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
