Study Finds Link Between Alzheimer's, Diabetes
A statistical analysis found that people with diabetes had a much higher rate of developing Alzheimer's disease than those who don't have diabetes. Age is still the greatest risk factor for developing Alzheimer's. One in 10 Americans over 65 and nearly half of those over 85 have the incurable, progressive brain disease.

Iron Overload And Diabetes
Many people have never heard of hereditary hemochromatosis (HH), the most common genetic disease among white people--even though it sometimes causes diabetes. Diabetes news for nutrition and diet planning.

Type 1/Type 2 - Cold Weather Increases A1Cs
A team of researchers working in Veterans Health Administration centers across the country has found a link between cold weather and higher A1C levels. Read more about this study of more than 272,722 veterans with diabetes. (Diabetes Research, blood sugar level, alc)

Diabetic Neuropathies
Neuropathies lead to numbness and sometimes pain and weakness in the hands, arms, feet, and legs. Problems may also occur in every organ system, including the digestive tract, heart, and sex organs. An estimated 50 percent of those with diabetes have some form of neuropathy, but not all with neuropathy have symptoms.  (Types of Neuropathy, Proximal Neuropathy, Focal Neuropathy, Neuropathy Treatment)

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)

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)

Shaky Amount of Iodine in U.S. Salt
There are fewer food sources of iodine in the American diet than there were just a few decades ago, raising the risk of iodine deficiency in a growing number of people. So says a researcher who calls himself an "iodine activist." (Salt, Low Salt Diet, Iodine Deficiency)

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)

Diabetes Risk Falls As Magnesium Intake Increases
Getting enough magnesium in your diet could help prevent diabetes, a new study suggests. Consuming 200 milligrams of magnesium for every 1,000 calories reduces risk of diabetes by 47%. (Insulin Resistance, Inflammation, Whole Grains)

A Tune-Up for Your Thyroid
The thyroid, a small, butterfly-shaped gland below your Adam's apple, pretty much rules your body, says Douglas Husbands, DC, CCN, a clinical nutritionist and chiropractor in San Carlos, California. It regulates your metabolism, explains Husbands, and an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) slows everything down - from your pulse and temperature to your energy level and the rate at which you burn calories. An overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), on the other hand, revs the body into overdrive. (Thyroid disorder, T4, TSH, Selenium, Iodine, L-tyrosine)

Nutritional Support For The Prostate Gland
Native American Indians gathered saw palmetto berries and ate them when they had urinary problems or poor urine stream flow. Many health claims have been made for these berries. In Germany, the saw palmetto berry is approved for the treatment of BPH and 80% of Germans use this and other natural treatments for BPH (prostate enlargement). (Prostate Disorders, Saw Palmetto, Pygeum Africanum, Lycopene, Uva Ursi, Pumpkin Seed Oil)

Sight Lines
In the U.S., 1 million blind adults ages 40 and older, and 2.4 million adults who are visually impaired, do without life's images. By 2020, there could be 5.5 million such cases, according to the National Eye Institute (NEI). Here's a rundown of the leading causes of blindness and vision impairment.

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)
a test to examine blood vessels in the eye; done by injecting dye into an arm vein and then taking photos as the dye goes through the eye's blood vessels.
