How Stress Affects People With Diabetes
With people with diabetes, stress can alter blood glucose levels, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) notes. It does this in two ways. First, people under stress may not take good care of themselves. Second, stress hormones may also alter blood glucose levels directly. (Type 2 Diabetes, Stress)

Weighty Research On Diet Supplements
Researchers in this study that covered a 10-year period found that obese or overweight consumers who took four supplements experienced less weight gain than those who did not use the supplements. Chromium seemed to most help weight control. It helps regulate blood-sugar levels, which keeps appetite in check. (Chromium, Diabetes Nutrition, Weight Loss)

Heart Disease & Diabetes
A high level of homocysteine in the blood is now being recognized as a new, independent risk factor for heart troubles.  But the good news is that a high level of homocysteine can be treated with modifications to your daily diet or by supplementation. If you are getting plenty of folate, B6 and B12 from your food, they "detoxify" the homocysteine, driving levels down and keeping you safe from heart troubles. Important information for a diabetic diet.

Gastroparesis & Diabetes
Gastroparesis, also called delayed gastric emptying, is a disorder in which the stomach takes too long to empty its contents. It often occurs in people with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Gastroparesis can also complicate efforts to control blood sugar levels with medication because it disrupts the timing of the digestive process.

Diabetes Risk May Be Associated With Elevated Iron Levels
High levels of iron in the blood may foreshadow the development of type 2 diabetes, a new study suggests. Research has shown that people with a genetic condition that causes huge elevations of iron in the blood are known to be at risk for type 2 diabetes. This study aimed to determine whether the diabetes link would hold true for healthy people with just mildly elevated levels of iron. (Diabetes Research)

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)

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.

Diabetic Complications
Persistently high blood sugar levels can lead to long-term complications such as accelerated development of cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, cardiovascular disease, diabetic neuropathy, nephropathy and foot problems. Diabetes education on how to recognize signs and symptoms. Details diabetes symptoms of eye problems, nephropathy, cardiovascular disease, neuropathy and foot ailments.

Magnesium Is Important For Heart Health
Since magnesium is required for muscle contraction, and the heart is a muscle, the mineral is related to heart abnormalities and even to heart attacks. Magnesium depletion predisposes one to hypertension and cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) and may predispose to narrowing of blood vessels and perhaps myocardial infarction (damage to heart muscle, which often precedes a heart attack). Read more about the importance of magnesium in your daily diet. (Heart Disease and Diabetes Nutrition)

Benfotiamine - Protection Against Diabetic Complications
Benfotiamine, a little-known fat-soluble form of vitamin B1, has been shown to help prevent the development and progression of many diabetic complications. Used for decades in Europe as a prescription medication, benfotiamine fights against the progression of diabetic nerve, kidney, and retinal damage, and relieves the painful symptoms of diabetic neuropathy

The Villainous Role Your Blood Sugar Plays
Your body needs blood sugar. Like gas in a car, it's the fuel that makes you go. Without it, your life would quickly grind to a halt. But when your gas tank is full, you don't need any more fuel. There's no point in pouring gasoline all over the upholstery, the steering wheel, and the dashboard! (Diabetes Management, Blood Sugar)

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)

Glucose and Immunity
Eating sugar also reduces the body's ability to fight infections. In 1908, researchers noted that diabetics were more susceptible than non-diabetics to infection. It took researchers until 1942 to discover that the bacteria-engulfing white blood cells of diabetics were essentially sleeping on the job. (Blood Sugar and Glucose and Diabetes Diet)

The Skinny on Sugar Substitutes
If you are like most Americans, you love the sweet taste of sugar.  With an average consumption of over 20 teaspoons per person per day, we are a nation with an enormous sweet tooth. And chances are, even though you are working at slashing the sugar, you haven't lost your sweet tooth. Luckily, there are more choices than ever when it comes to sugar-free foods and sugar substitutes. Learn more about the sugar substitutes sucralose, aspartame, saccharin, acesulfame K and sugar alcohols. (Diabetic Cooking and Sugar Substitutes)

Alpha Lipoic Acid Reverses Nerve Damage In Diabetics
Nerve damage is one of diabetes' most devastating complications and affects more than 50 percent of all diabetics. Its typical course is relentlessly downhill and there are no effective medicines to treat it. But now there is hope. A study recently published in Diabetes Care reports that the antioxidant nutrient alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) can partly restore diabetic nerve function. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications)
