Get A "Grrip!": Diabetes and Your Hands
When you hear about the complications of diabetes, you usually hear about your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and feet. But diabetes can affect the muscles and joints of your hands, too. Diabetes-related hand conditions are usually not life-threatening, but they can have a great impact on the quality of your life. (Diabetic Complications, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Stiff-Hand Syndrome, Dupuytren's Contracture)

Transient Ischemic Attack
Risk factors for strokes and TIAs are very similar. The risk of a TIA or stroke is higher among men, African Americans, people over age 65, and people with heart disease or diabetes.

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)

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)

The Skinny on Sugar Substitutes
If you are like most Americans, you love the sweet taste of sugar.  With an average consumption of over 20 teaspoons per person per day, we are a nation with an enormous sweet tooth. And chances are, even though you are working at slashing the sugar, you haven't lost your sweet tooth. Luckily, there are more choices than ever when it comes to sugar-free foods and sugar substitutes. Learn more about the sugar substitutes sucralose, aspartame, saccharin, acesulfame K and sugar alcohols. (Diabetic Cooking and Sugar Substitutes)

The evidence is steadily coming in showing that supplementing with B vitamins not only lowers homocysteine, but reduces other heart-risky conditions. (Heart Disease, Stroke, Homocysteine, Vitamin B)

For Diabetics, Heart Attacks Are Deadlier

(Heart Disease, Diabetic Complications, Severe Heart Attack)

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.
