Alpha-Lipoic Acid Improves Neuropathy Symptoms
In people with diabetes, alpha-lipoic acid appears to enhance insulin action and blood vessel circulation, protect against diabetic neuropathy (nerve disease), and inhibit protein glycation (a reaction between excess glucose and protein that impairs the protein's function and forms harmful end products in the body). (Diabetic Neuropathy, Alpha-Lipoic Acid)

Alpha Lipoic Acid
A little known but extremely powerful antioxidant nutrient is available in supplemental form called alpha lipoic acid. Alpha lipoic acid appears to be a wonder nutrient and it seems to work particularly well in diabetic patients. (Alpha Lipoic Acid, Diabetes Research, Diabetic Complications, Neuropathy)

Understanding Insulin Resistance
In people with type 1 diabetes, the beta cells in the pancreas are destroyed by the body's own immune system and can no longer produce any insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the problem is somewhat more complex. The pancreas produces insulin-sometimes more than normal. But the insulin doesn't work properly. The result is the same: the sugar remains in the blood in high concentrations, setting you up for a number of health problems. ( Diabetic Symptoms, blood sugar levels, Syndrome X)

Diabetes Alert: Halt Digestion Distress
If you've got diabetes and also have digestive discomfort--such as tummy pain, gas, bloating, heartburn, constipation, or diarrhea--don't overlook this hidden cause: uncontrolled blood sugar. Read more about what you can do. (Diabetes Education and Diabetic Meal Planning)

Fish Oil Lowers Triglycerides
The results of 18 trials conducted over a 10-year period show that fish oil supplementation for patients with type 2 diabetes lowers triglycerides but has no significant effect on blood sugar. (Diabetes Research and Essential Fatty Acids, EFAs, Omega 3)

Sugar Substitutes
Sugar substitutes may taste sweet and cut down on calories, but are they creating an excess release of insulin in your body. Learn what artificial sweeteners may be setting off your insulin trigger. (Diabetes Diet and Diabetes Management)

Health Consequences of Too Much Fast Food
Eating fast food regularly increases the odds of becoming obese and/or a type 2 diabetic. That's the conclusion of the CARDIA study (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults), which followed 3,031 young adults for 15 years.  (Diabetic Meal Planning and Type 2 Diabetes)

Promoting And Protecting Brain Health
In addition to choosing fresh, organic foods and using brain-healthy ways to prepare them, it is possible to further boost the health of our brains by supplementing our daily menu of foods with vitamins, minerals, and other supplements that specifically target and enrich the function of the brain. In truth, it can be hard to get the optimal levels of the vitamins and minerals we need through diet alone. (Alzheimers, Memory, Concentration, Phosphatidylcholine, Alpha GPC, Alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine, Mental Focus)

The Right Choices: How to Keep Those Holiday Pounds At Bay
The holidays are here and it is time to celebrate with family and friends. This is a wonderful time of year, but it is the 5 - 7 pounds that hang around after the holidays that we could do without. This season doesn’t have to be fattening, however. With a little advance planning, you can enjoy all the festivities without sacrificing your waistline. (Weight gain, diabetic lifestyle, healthy diet)

Stress Can Cause Nutrient Deficiencies
Enough of the Right Nutrients Can Prevent Stress, and Controlling Stress Can, in Turn, Prevent Nutrient Deficiencies. Water-soluble nutrients such as the B vitamins, vitamin C, and all of the minerals are generally excreted at a faster rate during periods of stress.

Prevent & Protect - Control Blood Sugar To Prevent Complications
Three out of five people with diabetes have one or more complications from the disease. In the United States, more than 200,000 people a year die from all types of diabetic complications. (Diabetic Complications, Heart Disease, Stroke, Neuropathy)

All The Nerve
One of the most common long-term repercussions of high blood glucose levels is diabetic neuropathy, or nerve damage. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), about two-thirds of those with diabetes have some form of this complication. (Diabetes Management, Neuropathy Symptoms, Preventing Neuropathy)

Nutritional Management of Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. Fortunately, diabetic retinopathy is a nutritionally responsive disorder. Natural agents can be used to reduce the initial damage to the blood vessels in the retina and enhance integrity. (Diabetes Nutrition and Retinopathy)

Plants As Means Of Blood Sugar Control
Before the advent of insulin, diabetes and hypoglycemia were treated with plant medicines. In the last 20 years scientific investigation has, in fact, confirmed the efficacy of many of these preparations, some of which are remarkably effective. (Diabetic Product, Herb for Diabetes, Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Fenugreek, Bilberry, Pterocarpus)

Antioxidant Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
A collaborative study between Mayo Clinic and a medical center in Russia found that alpha lipoic acid (ALA) significantly and rapidly reduces the frequency and severity of symptoms of the most common kind of diabetic neuropathy.  (Neuropathy and Diabetic Complications)
