Exercise and Diabetes
Exercise is very important in managing diabetes. Exercise improves your body's use of insulin. Blood glucose levels are affected by exercise, so be aware of general exercise guidelines and precautions for diabetics as you begin your fitness program. (Diabetes Information)

Diabetes Health Tricks
No magic bullet can stop our epidemic of type 2 diabetes, but certain supplements may help cut risk and alleviate symptoms. (Alpha-lipoic Acid, Neuropathy, High Triglycerides, Insulin)

Hypoglycemia In Youth With Diabetes
Hypoglycemia (also known as an "insulin reaction," or just "low blood sugar") occurs when blood glucose goes too low. Hypoglycemia can be caused by many things: too much insulin, not enough food, too much exercise, eating late, or eating too little carbohydrate. It's important to recognize the symptoms that are unique to you so that you can treat it before it becomes serious. (Symptom Juvenile Diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes)

Why You Need the Bs
B-complex vitamins are essential for your body to convert sugar and starches to energy, a chemical process called carbohydrate metabolism.  A shortage of any one of them can cause problems.  Vitamin B6 deficiency has been linked to glucose intolerance, which is an abnormally high rise in blood sugar after eating. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Management)

Hyperglycemia (in Juvenile Diabetes)
Diabetic adolescents are especially susceptible to hyperglycemia, since hormonal levels are in flux and many adolescents exhibit erratic eating and sleeping patterns. Be able to recognize the signs of hyperglycemia. (Diabetic child) 

Alpha-Lipoic Acid- Nature's Perfect Antioxidant
Alpha-lipoic acid is an approved drug in Germany for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. Although alpha-lipoic acid's primary effect in improving neuropathy is thought to be the result of its antioxidant effects, it has also been shown to lead to an improvement in blood sugar metabolism, improve blood flow to peripheral nerves, and actually stimulate the regeneration of nerve fibers. (diabetes treatment, diabetic nutrition, preventing neuropathy)

The Power Of Natural Supplements
Some of the most exciting - and underutilized - advancements being made in the optimization of healthy blood glucose metabolism involve the use of natural supplements.  (Diabetes Research, Nutraceuticals)

Calcium and Vitamin D For Diabetes
While diet, exercise, weight loss, and medications are prescribed for people with diabetes, more Americans are turning to nutritional support for additional help. Studies confirm that vitamin D and calcium supplementation are associated with a reduced risk of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. (Diabetes Nutrition, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes)

Choosing an Oral Diabetes Medication
Generally, you will not use an oral agent if you have type I diabetes. They are usually only prescribed for people with type II diabetes.  Not everyone with type II diabetes will be helped by oral diabetes medications. Cautions for use and for drug interactions are addressed.  (Diabetes type ii)

What Every Pregnant Woman Should Know
Pregnancy is an exciting time, but it can also be a trying time if mothers-to-be develop a condition known as gestational diabetes, caused by hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. Gestational diabetes affects about 7 percent of pregnant women or more than 200,000 mothers a year in the United States. If you or someone you know is diagnosed with gestational diabetes, rest assured that with proper treatment, both mom and baby can have excellent health. (Gestational Diabetes and Diabetes Education)

Magnesium Deficiency
If you have type 2 diabetes and are experiencing leg cramps, chances are your body is screaming for magnesium. In fact, up to 80% of type 2 diabetics have a magnesium deficiency. (Leg Cramps, Magnesium Deficiency, Type 2 Diabetes)

New Study Shows Zinc Prevents Major Diabetes Damage
A new study led by an Indian professor has revealed that zinc may perform a protective function preventing major damage for those with type 2 diabetes. (Blood Sugar Control, Amylin)

Plants As Means Of Blood Sugar Control
Before the advent of insulin, diabetes and hypoglycemia were treated with plant medicines. In the last 20 years scientific investigation has, in fact, confirmed the efficacy of many of these preparations, some of which are remarkably effective. (Diabetic Product, Herb for Diabetes, Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Fenugreek, Bilberry, Pterocarpus)

Help For Kids To Fight Diabetes?
New research suggests that fish oil may reduce a child's risk of developing type 1 diabetes. (Juvenile-Onset Diabetes, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Diabetes Research)
