Carnitine - Fuel For High-Energy Living
What do college students, fitness enthusiasts and people who worry about getting older have in common? They-and many others-can benefit from L-carnitine, a nutrient found in many energy drinks and in dietary supplements designed to support exercise performance and a long life free of heart disease and other age-related maladies. (Diabetic Nutrition, Exercise, Heart Disease)

Peripheral Neuropathy Explained
Perhaps because it's poorly understood and not commonly discussed, peripheral neuropathy is sometimes called the "silent disease".  Yet it affects more people than rheumatoid arthritis-a much better known ailment-with just as severe consequences in its worst form. (Neuropathy and Diabetes Education)

It's Complicated - Spotting The Conditions That May Come With Diabetes
There is good news for those with diabetes. "People are living longer; there's less heart disease, fewer amputations and less eye disease," says Richard Jackson, M.D., senior physician at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston. The key is catching associated problems early. (Neuropathy, Retinopathy, Heart Attack, Stroke)

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)

Vitamin B12 Screening Urged for Metformin Users
 A study presented in June 2009 at the American Diabetes Association's 69th Annual Scientific Sessions, looked at the prevalence of vitamin B12 deficiency in 76 people with type 2 diabetes who had been taking Metformin for at least one year. The results showed that more than 75% of Metformin users who had low vitamin B12 levels also had evidence of peripheral neuropathy. 

Alpha-Lipoic Acid: Extra Help Taming Diabetes
Researchers have discovered that the potent antioxidant, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, may be an effective treatment for a common complication of diabetes, known as diabetic neuropathy, which develops when high blood sugar levels damage delicate nerve endings. It may also help control blood sugar in diabetics, possibly by lowering insulin levels and increasing the transport of sugar into cells. (Diabetic Nutrition, Diabetic Product, Diabetic Neuropathy)

Diabetics Who Control Blood Sugar Today
People with diabetes who keep their blood sugar in check today will probably have a far lower chance of developing foot pain or other nerve damage tomorrow, according to new research results from a national study. (Diabetes Research, Neuropathy, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes)

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)

Nutrition Hotline - Nutrients for Neuropathy
Vitamin B-12, alpha-lipoic acid, essential fatty acids from fish oil, acetyl-L-carnitine, lecithin, and phosphatidyl choline have been shown to be of benefit to those suffering with diabetic neuropathies and appear to significantly relieve the pain. (Nerve Pain, Idiopathic Polyneuropathy, Neuropathy Treatment, Phosphatidylcholine)

Other Important Supplements - Essential Fatty Acids
There are two main EFA groups: omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. EFAs are components of cell membranes the body needs but cannot manufacture itself. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications, Essential Fatty Acids)

Coping With Nerve Pain - B Vitamin Relief
When you lack B vitamins, you may suffer pain in your hands or feet, signs of what's called peripheral neuropathy. The good news: B supplements can help your nerves calm down and stop screaming with pain. About 15 million Americans suffer from neuropathy, a nerve problem that can damage the nervous system and cause unrelenting aches and pains. In particular, people suffering from diabetes may suffer peripheral neuropathy when the sugar in their blood reaches and remains at dangerous levels. (Neuropathy and Diabetes Management)

Complications: An Introduction
Diabetes is a complicated disease--complicated to understand, complicated to treat. There are steps you can take to reduce your chances of developing complications, such as keeping your blood glucose and cholesterol levels in a healthy range.(retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, diabetes management)

Numbness and Tingling
Pain, numbness, tingling and pain that don't go away can usually be traced to a damaged sheath, inflammation, compression or an injury to the nerves themselves-particularly to the peripheral nerves, which lead to the arms and legs. Those with Diabetes Type I and Type II should be aware of these common signs of diabetic neuropathy.

Straight Talk: Diabetes And Intimacy
It's easy to pin a lagging libido on stress, depression, age, or lack of sleep. But when you have diabetes, there may be an underlying factor - symptoms related to diabetes. (Diabetic Complications, Erectile Dysfunction, ED, Depression)

Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate - Vitamin B6
Pyridoxal-5-phosphate (PLP or P-5-P) is considered the most metabolically active coenzyme and supplement of vitamin B6, and the most bioavailable form of this vitamin.
