Lack of Sleep Linked to Poor Diabetes Control
A new study shows that not getting enough sleep or getting poor quality sleep may worsen diabetes control. (Type 2 Diabetes, HbA1c, sleep deprivation)

A1C - An Important Blood Test
The fasting blood sugar test (FBS), which is still the most commonly performed test for Diabetes, does not reflect the true picture of diabetic control over a long period of time. The glycated hemoglobin a1c test is a more accurate diabetes test to reflect overall blood sugar control. (A1C or aIc, blood sugar testing)

Insulin Pumps
If you use insulin frequently, you have probably thought about getting an insulin pump from time to time. But maybe it seemed too costly or inconvenient. Now is the time for a second look at this diabetic product that has changed with the times.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine Improves Diabetic Neuropathy
Study shows that acetyl-L-carnitine not only improves the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy, but also helps regenerate nerve fibers and vibration perception. (Diabetic Neuropathy and Diabetes Research)

Pediatric Diabetes - Diabetes in Children
Recent estimates suggest that type 2 may now account for as many as 45% of new diabetes cases in the pediatric population. Physicians report on children with diabetes at a meeting sponsored by the American Diabetes Association. (Search by: symptom juvenile diabetes.)

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)

Sorbitol: A Hazard For Diabetics
Conversion of glucose to sorbitol is greatly accelerated in diabetics, and that can cause dangerous complications over time. Since sorbitol can't exit from your cells very fast, and is not used in the body, it accumulates and attracts water. This causes the cells to swell, which can result in nerve, eye, kidney and blood vessel damage, as well as development of cataracts. (Sorbitol, Diabetic Complications, Type 2 Diabetes, Artificial Sweetener)

ADA Survey Finds Lack of Neuropathy Awareness
A new national survey commissioned by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) reveals that, while the majority of people with diabetes experience symptoms associated with diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage) -- only a small minority have been diagnosed with this condition. And, a staggering 56% of patients have never even heard of diabetic neuropathy. (neuropathy symptoms, diabetes care, diabetes statistics)

ADA Blood Sugar Goals for Diabetes
Are you wondering what your blood sugar goals should be? These goals provided by the American Diabetes Association are determined from studies that examined the effects of near-normal blood sugar levels on the rates of diabetic complications. (Blood Sugar Level and Diabetes Management)

Higher Body Iron Stores Predict Future Risk of Women Developing Type 2 Diabetes
In the first large study to assess iron stores and risk of type 2 diabetes in an apparently healthy population, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) found that higher iron stores were associated with significantly elevated risk of type 2 diabetes, independent of other known diabetes risk factors. (Diabetes Research, Type 2 Diabetes)

Many Diabetics Not Controlling Blood Sugar
This year, specialists for the first time are urging every diabetic over age 50 to get tested for the leg disease, called peripheral arterial disease or PAD. Studies suggest one in three diabetics over age 50 may have PAD. Anybody can get PAD. At least 12 million Americans are thought to have it, most of them undiagnosed.

Causes of Type II Diabetes
Unlike people with type I diabetes who become unable to produce insulin, people with type II diabetes produce insulin. But, either the body does not respond to insulin's action-it's resistant-or there is just not enough insulin to go around-there's too much body for the amount of insulin that's made. Either problem leads to the same outcome: high levels of glucose in the blood. (Type 2  Diabetes and Diabetes Education)

Nature's Sweet Benefits
Chalk up another one for Mother Nature. Most people with diabetes rely on drugs and lifestyle modifications to moderate their body chemistry. But a host of natural herbal supplements may further help them manage blood glucose levels, improve their vision, and alleviate a variety of diabetes-related health problems.

Diabetics At Increased Risk Of Hearing Loss
Diabetics should be screened for hearing loss because they have twice the risk of developing hearing loss as are nondiabetics, researchers reported at the American Diabetes Association 67th Scientific Sessions (ADA). (Diabetic Complications, Hearing Loss, Deafness)

Low Vitamin D Linked to Poor Diabetes Control
Vitamin D deficiency, long suspected to be a risk factor for glucose intolerance, is commonly found in people with poor diabetes control, according to a new study. (Type 2 Diabetes, A1c, Insulin Resistance)
