Zinc
Zinc, the second most abundant trace mineral in the body, plays critical roles in glucose regulation, the proper function of insulin, and weight control. (Syndrome X, Insulin Resistance, Diabetes Nutrition)

Using Herbs to Manage High Blood Sugar
Sustainable blood sugar control is critical to a diabetic patient’s health over time. Often, as a diabetic patient ages, insulin-reducing medications begin to lose their effectiveness. Treatment with herbs, along with carefully controlled nutrition and daily exercise, can help diabetic patients keep blood sugar levels under control over the long term. (Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Pterocarpus marsupium, High Blood Sugar)

Diabetes Mellitus: Causes and Symptoms
Definition and Description of Diabetes Mellitus. Know the conditions that can be a sign of diabetes. Diabetes information with a Discussion of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. (diabetes type II) Risk factors for developing sugar diabetes.

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)

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)

Complications: An Introduction
Diabetes is a complicated disease--complicated to understand, complicated to treat. There are steps you can take to reduce your chances of developing complications, such as keeping your blood glucose and cholesterol levels in a healthy range.(retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, diabetes management)

Eye Disease In African Americans
Time and again, studies show that poor blood glucose control increases the risk of complications such as diabetic retinopathy, a common cause of blindness. Now, a new caveat-the risk is particularly high in African Americans. (Retinopathy, Diabetic Complications, Type 1 Diabetes)

Gymnema Sylvestre
Gymnema sylvestre, also known as gurmar is another herb from India's Ayurvedic medical traditions that has been used for centuries to neutralize excess sugar. As with many other Ayurvedic herbs, its properties have been confirmed by scientific studies. (Diabetes Nutrition, Insulin-Dependent Diabetes)

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)

What Every Pregnant Woman Should Know
Pregnancy is an exciting time, but it can also be a trying time if mothers-to-be develop a condition known as gestational diabetes, caused by hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. Gestational diabetes affects about 7 percent of pregnant women or more than 200,000 mothers a year in the United States. If you or someone you know is diagnosed with gestational diabetes, rest assured that with proper treatment, both mom and baby can have excellent health. (Gestational Diabetes and Diabetes Education)

Pediatric Blood (Sugar) Glucose Test
Concerned that your child's blood glucose levels may not be normal? The most common use of the blood glucose test is to check for diabetes mellitus. The test is also used to see how well the body is metabolizing glucose and the function of organs involved in that process: the pancreas, the liver, and the receptors that bring glucose into cells. (Blood Glucose Testing, Juvenile Diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes, Blood Sugar Level)

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.

Stress
Stress results when something causes your body to behave as if it were under attack. When stress occurs, the body prepares to take action. This preparation is called the fight-or-flight response. In people who have diabetes, the fight-or-flight response does not work well. Insulin is not always able to let the extra energy into the cells, so glucose piles up in the blood. (Stress, Diabetic Complications, High Blood Sugar)

Vitamin C: Important for Diabetics
Vitamin C protects against Syndrome X, diabetes, and their accompanying disorders in many different ways. It works most directly by blocking many of the deleterious effects of elevated glucose and insulin. Important information for diabetes management and diabetes nutrition. (Diabetic Nutrition)

Bitter Melon Has Potent Anti-Diabetes Effects
Substances isolated from bitter melon, a plant eaten and used medicinally in much of Asia, could provide the basis of new drugs for treating diabetes and obesity, an international team of researchers reports. (Bitter Melon, Diabetes, Obesity)
