All About Peripheral Arterial Disease
Peripheral arterial disease, also called PAD, occurs when blood vessels in the legs are narrowed or blocked by fatty deposits. Blood flow to your feet and legs decreases. If you have PAD, you have an increased risk for heart attack and stroke. An estimated one out of every three people with diabetes over the age of 50 have this condition. However, many of those with warning signs don't realize that they have PAD and therefore don't get treatment. (Diabetes Complications, Heart Attack, Stroke)

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)

6 Ways To Make A Difference
Taking control of diabetes is a team project. Here are some suggestions to help you support and help your family and friends with diabetes. (Diabetes Management, Diabetes Education)

Watch Out For Kidney Disease
Diabetes is actually the leading cause of end-stage kidney disease in the U.S., and 20 to 30 percent of people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes will develop the early signs of kidney disease.  (Kidney Disease, Diabetic Complications)

Balancing Blood Sugar Metabolism
Scientific evidence continues to mount regarding the effectiveness of natural substances in normalizing blood sugar in diabetics. Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon and Cinnamon Extract show significant impact on normalizing blood glucose levels. (Insulin Resistance)

Diabetes - The Inflammation Syndrome Connection
Many nutritional supplements can lessen the inflammation in diabetes, but it is essential that the underlying diet be corrected. That said, a key objective of supplementation should be to lower glucose levels and improve insulin function, which should in turn reduce inflammation. Helpful supplements include chromium, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and the omega-3 fatty acids. (Diabetes Nutrition, Inflammation, Arthritis, Heart Disease)

High Blood Pressure and Diabetes; A Deadly Duo
High blood pressure (or hypertension) isn't called "the silent killer" for nothing. Oftentimes people will have it and not even know it until it's too late.  For most people with diabetes, keeping blood pressure below 130/80 will help prevent problems.

Low Blood Sugar - Hypoglycemia
When people first encounter the diet prescribed for hypoglycemia, they are often baffled by the ban on sugar. They have been given a diagnosis of low blood sugar and yet they must avoid sugar. Hypoglycemia is the opposite of diabetes, and diabetics cannot have sugar, therefore, surely the hypoglycemic sufferer must eat lots of sugar? This is a common misunderstanding.

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)

Trigger Finger
Trigger finger is a condition in which one of your fingers or your thumb catches in a bent position. An often painful condition, trigger finger is caused by a narrowing of the sheath that surrounds the tendon in the affected finger. People whose work or hobbies require repetitive gripping actions are most susceptible to this condition. Trigger finger is also more common in women than in men, and in anyone with diabetes. (Trigger Finger and Diabetic Complications)

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)

If I Don't Feel Sick, How Can High Blood Sugars Hurt Me?
Complications from diabetes come on over time, and damage has often started before we realize something is wrong. The belief that "as long as I feel well I must be well" does not hold true for the complications of diabetes; they come on quietly. (neuropathy prevention, diabetic complications, diabetic neuropathy)

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)

Nutritional Relief for Allergies
Vitamin C , Zinc, Quercetin, Butterbur and Elderberry show promise for alleviating allergy symptoms naturally.

Anti-Inflammatory Herbs...Designed By Nature
Some of these herbal remedies are very effective immediately to help you to feel better, others may work more slowly. Many of these are powerful herbs for joint pain, as they have a natural anti-inflammatory action that may help to reduce the swelling of arthritis. (Boswellia, Turmeric, Cat's Claw, Ginger Root, Pain, Inflammation)
