Diabetic Recipes - Heart Healthy Main Dish
Put a heart-healthy crunch into your favorite fried foods like Parmesan-Crunch Baked Chicken, Cornflake and Sesame-Crusted Shrimp and Crispy Italian-Style Baked Potato Wedges. (Diabetic Meal Planning, Heart Disease)

Health Studies Boost in Vitamin D Requirements
Vitamin D has long been recognized as essential to promoting calcium absorption to allow for bone growth and remodeling. Now, its role in health maintenance is expanding in other directions. Some researchers say if we dramatically increase amounts either absorbed from the sun, or ingested in supplements or fortified foods, a corresponding drop could occur in many rapidly proliferating illnesses, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease. (Vitamin D, Diabetes, Calcium, Cardiovascular Disease)

Supplements Best Way to Raise Vitamin D Levels
The best way to get enough vitamin D is through food, right?  No, according to the latest Harvard Heart Letter, which says supplements are the best way for Americans to raise their body’s level of vitamin D, which in most cases too low right this moment. (Cardiovascular Disease, Vitamin D Deficiency, Type 2 Diabetes)

Digestive Health and Holiday Eating
You can give your digestive system the extra support it needs to survive holiday stress. Maintaining the proper level of digestive enzymes will help you break down hard-to-digest foods and keep your digestive process running smoothly and comfortably.

Vitamin D Triggers ad Arms the Immune System
The so-called sunshine vitamin, which can be obtained from food or manufactured by human skin exposed to the sun, plays a key role in boosting the immune system, researchers believe. (Autoimmune Disease, T Cells, Crohn's Disease)

How Can Selenium Help the Thyroid?
The thyroid produces hormones that regulate heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and weight. Iodine and selenium are critical minerals for maintaining proper function of the thyroid gland. Selenium is found naturally in many foods and is also available in supplement form. (Thyroid Disease, Goiter, T3, T4)

Curb Sugar Cravings
Hunger suddenly strikes. You need food, and you need it now. You rummage for that long-lost candy bar buried somewhere in your desk - anything to get a sugar fix. That rapid rise in blood glucose, along with the attendant release of the "feel-good" hormone serotonin, may make you feel better temporarily, but when your glucose levels soon nose-dive, you'll return to your low-serotonin state - a prime candidate for yet more sugar cravings.

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)

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)

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)

Heart Disease & Diabetes
A high level of homocysteine in the blood is now being recognized as a new, independent risk factor for heart troubles.  But the good news is that a high level of homocysteine can be treated with modifications to your daily diet or by supplementation. If you are getting plenty of folate, B6 and B12 from your food, they "detoxify" the homocysteine, driving levels down and keeping you safe from heart troubles. Important information for a diabetic diet.

Diabetes: Dealing With Holidays
Diabetic nutrition can be a real challenge during holiday festivities. Diabetes food choices are reviewed with practical tips on how to maintain a normal blood sugar level. Sticking to a low carbohydrate diet does not mean missing all the fun!

Sugar Alcohol
Sugar-free candy as well as as other products using the term "sugar-free" should be evaluated for total carbohydrate content.  Sugar alcohols, though listed by their weight content within the food as listed in the Nutrition Facts panel, are not metabolized (broken down and used for energy) the way true sugars are.  Because sugar alcohols are incompletely absorbed, the FDA allows the labeling and assignment of less energy per gram to these nutritive sweeteners. (Diabetes Diet and Nutrition)

Type 2 Review
If you've  become accustomed to the blood sugar roller coaster unleashed by refined sugars and processed foods, you've probably had fleeting thoughts about the possibility of developing type 2 diabetes. Perhaps other factors also put you at risk for diabetes. But you should know that relatively simple lifestyle modifications can prevent type 2 diabetes. ( Diabetic Risk Factors, Diabetic Symptoms, Preventing Diabetes)

Hypoglycemia In Youth With Diabetes
Hypoglycemia (also known as an "insulin reaction," or just "low blood sugar") occurs when blood glucose goes too low. Hypoglycemia can be caused by many things: too much insulin, not enough food, too much exercise, eating late, or eating too little carbohydrate. It's important to recognize the symptoms that are unique to you so that you can treat it before it becomes serious. (Symptom Juvenile Diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes)
