Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Cinnamon Extract, Vanadium & Chromium
If you are trying to get your carbohydrate-craving and weight-storing chemistry under control, gymnema may be of benefit. Bitter melon can help by improving blood sugar balance and reducing the amount of sugars in the blood. A compound in cinnamon bark has been shown to increase glucose metabolism. Research on vanadium indicates that it may produce insulin-like activities in the body, making it of potential value for those with diabetes, insulin resistance, and metabolic syndrome. Chromium is thought to stimulate fat metabolism and to have a lowering effect on cholesterol and triglyceride levels. (Diabetic Nutrition, Diabetic Product)

Gymnema Sylvestre – The #1 Natural Enemy of Diabetes
Studies show that Gymnema is a natural treatment for diabetes.  Case reports and studies involving both humans and animals suggest that it may work in several ways to help control both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

Those With PCOS Can Benefit from Lo Carb Diet
Women with Polycystic ovary syndrome have an increased risk of developing insulin resistance, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, lipid abnormalities and endometrial carcinoma (cancer). Many non-medical approaches can relieve or reduce specific symptoms. Many women with PCOS follow a low-carbohydrate diet designed to lose or maintain their weight.

The Benefits of Magnesium - The Diabetes Connection
An exciting body of research strongly suggests that supplementation with magnesium can almost certainly help prevent or maybe even treat insulin resistance and other cardiovascular problems in people with diabetes.

10 Terms To Learn By Heart
When assessing cardiovascular health, here are ten terms you will want to be familiar with. (Heart Attack, Stroke, High Cholesterol, High Triglycerides)

A Compound In Red Wine Makes Fat Mice Healthy
A substance found in red wine protected mice from the ill effects of obesity and extended their life spans, raising the tantalizing prospect that the compound could do the same for humans and may also help people live longer, healthier lives. (Diabetes, Heart Disease, Resveratrol)

Do You Know About Celiac Disease?
A link between diabetes and celiac disease, both autoimmune disorders, has been recognized for some time. People with type 1 diabetes have a greater risk for developing celiac disease, typically about 1 in 20. (In the general population, including people with type 2 diabetes, the rate may be as high as 1 in 133.) In most cases, diabetes is diagnosed first. (Celiac Disease, Diabetic Complications)

Diabetes & Alcohol Consumption Information
Did you know that drinking less that two alcohol drinks per week can bring on nerve damage?  In addition, alcohol spurs the liver to make more triglycerides and that even light drinking (two four-ounce glasses of wine per week) can raise triglyceride levels. (Information from the American Diabetes Association)

Glucosamine & Diabetes - News Update
Recent Diabetes news reports that oral glucosamine supplementation does not result in clinically significant alterations in glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.(Diabetic Nutrition)

Diabetes Insipidus
Diabetes insipidus (DI) is a disorder that causes the patient to produce tremendous quantities of urine. The massively increased urine output is usually accompanied by intense thirst. (Diabetic Symptom, Diabetes Information )

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)

Neuropathy Most Likely To Strike In Type 2 Diabetes Not In Type 1
Painful neuropathy is more common in patients with type 2 diabetes than in those with type 1, due to metabolic syndrome, researchers suggest, because of a link with the metabolic syndrome. (Diabetic Complications, Polyneuropathy, Metabolic Syndrome)

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)

Type 2 Diabetes and Triglycerides
The combination of high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol and central obesity are the hallmarks of the metabolic syndrome diabetic dyslipidemia, which occurs in 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes. The frightening significance of this combination of risk factors is the marked incidence in these people of premature death from heart disease. (Type 2 Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity)

microalbumin (MY-kro-al-BYOO-min)
small amounts of the protein called albumin in the urine detectable with a special lab test.

nerve conduction studies
tests used to measure for nerve damage; one way to diagnose neuropathy.

oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT)
a test to diagnose pre-diabetes and diabetes. The oral glucose tolerance test is given by a health care professional after an overnight fast. A blood sample is taken, then the patient drinks a high-glucose beverage. Blood samples are taken at intervals for 2 to 3 hours. Test results are compared with a standard and show how the body uses glucose over time.

microalbuminuria (MY-kro-al-BYOO-min-your-EE-ah)
the presence of small amounts of albumin, a protein, in the urine. Microalbuminuria is an early sign of kidney damage, or nephropathy, a common and serious complication of diabetes. The ADA recommends that people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes be tested for microalbuminuria at the time they are diagnosed and every year thereafter; people with type 1 diabetes should be tested 5 years after diagnosis and every year thereafter. Microalbuminuria is usally managed by improving blood glucose control, reducing blood pressure, and modifying the diet.

fluorescein angiography (fluh-RESS-ee-in an-gee-AH-grah-fee)
