Oily Fish Helps Healthy Hearts, Too
People with no hint of heart trouble can safeguard their hearts - and reduce their risk of sudden death - by eating salmon or other oily fish twice a week or more, doctors report today. Several studies have shown that fish oils reduce the risk of sudden death among men who have had heart attacks, but the two new landmark studies mark the first time the long-term effects of a diet rich in fish have been examined in healthy men and women. (Diabetes Education and Heart Disease)

Omega-3 - More Than A Fish Tale
Eating a diet rich in omega-3 fats seems especially important for people with diabetes, whose risk of heart disease is three times higher than normal. (Heart Disease, Diabetic Complications, Omega-3 Fats, Fish Oil)

Coenzyme Q10 and L-Carnitine
Coenzyme Q10 is especially abundant in heart muscle, and it is an excellent antioxidant, about four times more potent than vitamin E in some studies. Another supplement that helps the heart is L-carnitine. (Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood Pressure, Angina)

Get Up And Go Vitamins
Americans are suffering from an energy crisis in more ways than one. Forget about sky-high fuel costs and consider this: in as many as 50 percent of all doctor visits, the chief complaint is fatigue. (Diabetes Nutrition, Fatigue, Exercise)

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.

Managing Hypoglycemia - Helpful Supplements (Part II)
This article lists many supplements that are suggested as useful for hypoglycemia in the literature. Outlines the importance of the B vitamins in  metabolizing fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Calcium, chromium, magnesium, manganese, selenium, vitamin C, vitamin E and zinc are discussed.  (Low blood sugar)

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)

Fish Oil Supplements May Be Safer Than Eating Fish
Consumption of fish oil supplements vs. fish meals may confer the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids without the risks of toxins. Read more about the benefits of fish oil supplementation. (Diabetes Nutrition and Cardiovascular Disease )

Study: Fatty Acids From Fish Can Ward Off Heart Attack
People with heart disease can lower their risk of fatal heart attack with a daily helping of salmon or another fatty fish or by taking a daily fish oil supplement, doctors recommend today. (Diabetes Nutrition, Heart Disease, Diabetic Complications)

Take These With Your Prescriptions
If you're taking any of these prescriptions, be sure that you're also supplementing with the appropriate nutrients. (Diabetic Complications, Statins, Blood Thinners, Antibiotics)

Omega-3 EPA Linked To Heart Disease Protection
People with high cholesterol levels and taking statins reduced their frequency of major cardiac events by about 20 percent when supplemented with the omega-3 of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), researchers have reported. (High Cholesterol, Heart Attack, Sudden Cardiac Death)

Women's Cardiovascular Health: Getting To The Heart Of The Matter
Heart disease is just as much of a women's health problem as it is a man's. In fact, tragically one out of every two women will develop, and die from, heart disease. This makes heart disease more of a threat to a women's health than breast cancer and all other forms of cancer combined. (Diabetic Complications, Heart Attack, Omega-3, B-Vitamins, Coenzyme Q10)

dl-Phenylalanine and Pain Relief
Phenylalanine is a readily available nutritional amino acid that may be obtained from various sources including vitamin and health food stores. This article discusses its use to block pain that may not be relieved by commercially offered medications. (Endorphins, Endogenous Analgesia System, EAS, Chronic Pain)

dl-Phenylalanine (DLPA)
The current theory is that DLPA prevents the breakdown of one of the brain’s natural pain-killing substances, enkephalins, which are in the same family as endorphins. (Chronic Pain, Improved Mood)

Are You At Risk For Vitamin B-12 Deficiency?
Vitamin B-12 deficiency can lead to anemia, nerve damage, tiredness, weakness, depression, weight loss, and numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. (Neuropathy, Type 2 Diabetes, Vitamin B-12)

alpha cell  (AL-fa)
a type of cell in the pancreas. Alpha cells make and release a hormone called glucagon. The body sends a signal to the alpha cells to make glucagon when blood glucose falls too low. Then glucagon reaches the liver where it tells it to release glucose into the blood for energy.

acarbose  (AK-er-bose)
an oral medicine used to treat Type 2 diabetes. It blocks the enzymes that digest starches in food. The result is a slower and lower rise in blood glucose throughout the day, especially right after meals. Belongs to the class of medicines called alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. (Brand name: Precose)

glucagon (GLOO-kah-gahn)
a hormone produced by the alpha cells in the pancreas. It raises blood glucose. An injectable form of glucagon, available by prescription, may be used to treat severe hypoglycemia.

islets
groups of cells located in the pancreas that make hormones that help the body break down and use food. For example, alpha cells make glucagon and beta cells make insulin. Also called islets of Langerhans (LANG-er-hahns).

miglitol (MIG-lih-tall)
an oral medicine used to treat Type 2 diabetes. It blocks the enzymes that digest starches in food. The result is a slower and lower rise in blood glucose throughout the day, especially right after meals. Belongs to the class of medicines called alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. (Brand name: Glyset)
