Coenzyme Q10 and L-Carnitine
Coenzyme Q10 is especially abundant in heart muscle, and it is an excellent antioxidant, about four times more potent than vitamin E in some studies. Another supplement that helps the heart is L-carnitine. (Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood Pressure, Angina)

Benfotiamine - Protection Against Diabetic Complications
Benfotiamine, a little-known fat-soluble form of vitamin B1, has been shown to help prevent the development and progression of many diabetic complications. Used for decades in Europe as a prescription medication, benfotiamine fights against the progression of diabetic nerve, kidney, and retinal damage, and relieves the painful symptoms of diabetic neuropathy

Good Fats and Bad Fats
Some fats are bad such as saturated fats and trans-fats. However, there's another kind of fat called essential fatty acids - and they are indeed essential. These unsaturated fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fats, make our cell membranes more flexible, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and reduce mortality from heart disease. (Diabetic Nutrition, Essential Fatty Acids, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure)

Carnosine, Acetyl L-Carnitine and Alpha-Lipoic Acid
It is well known that diabetics age prematurely. There is strong evidence that the proper dose of carnosine may help to prevent age-related conditions such as muscle atrophy, eye problems, and neurological degeneration. Numerous studies also reveal the  direct antiaging effects of acetyl-L-carnitine. Alpha-lipoic acid is a vital antioxidant that boosts the power of other antioxidants. Many studies document the benefits of alpha-lipoic acid in treating diabetes. (diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, diabetes management)

Low Blood Sugar Symptoms
Low blood sugar occurs much more frequently in people with Type I diabetes, whose bodies don't produce any insulin, than in people with Type 2 Diabetes. Exceptions to this may include people with Type 2 diabetes who are taking hypoglycemic agents, and particularly those who are taking insulin.

Slight Weight Loss Reduces Diabetes Risk Dramatically
When a person is overweight, insulin cannot work as effectively to keep blood glucose levels normal because the body becomes resistant to the action of its own insulin. Lifestyle modification can reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes by 58% in people at high risk for the disease. (Type 2 Diabetes Diet)

Constipation
Constipation is the most common digestive problem. Some estimates say up to 60 percent of people with diabetes may have reported bouts of constipation (constipation is generally considered less than three bowel movements per week). (Diabetes Diet, Irregularity)

Diabetes and Colorectal Cancer
People with diabetes may be three times more likely to develop colorectal cancer, a recent study shows. Almost 10,000 adults between the ages of 45 and 79 were tested for a marker in the blood sugar, then were followed up six years later. Researchers found that those with diabetes or abnormal glucose metabolism were more likely to develop bowel cancer. (Diabetes Research)

Acetyl-L-Carnitine Improves Diabetic Neuropathy
Study shows that acetyl-L-carnitine not only improves the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy, but also helps regenerate nerve fibers and vibration perception. (Diabetic Neuropathy and Diabetes Research)

Why B1 May Protect Diabetics
Can taking thiamine help prevent diabetic kidney disease? Recent studies show that high-dose supplementation with vitamin B1 prevents the development of diabetic kidney disease (nephropathy) in rats with toxin-induced diabetes. This study, combined with others with similar results, lends support to taking high dose thiamine supplements to ward off diabetic complications. (Diabetes Education)

Beat Diabetes!
Gymnema Sylvestre certainly could serve as the backbone of a natural diabetes program. In one recent study , Gymnema showed the potential for pancreas repair, raising output of insulin to normal levels.  This herb for diabetes is getting serious attention in an integrated approach to diabetes management. (Diabetic Product News)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid
Researchers say that alpha-lipoic acid is important for diabetics. It is possible that it not only prevents nerve damage from oxidation, but also promotes glucose metabolism. In a study published in Diabetes Care, patients with adult-onset diabetes who were given lipoic acid experienced slight nerve regeneration, while patients taking a placebo showed continued deterioration. (diabetic neuropathy, neuropathy treatment)

Magnesium Deficiency
If you have type 2 diabetes and are experiencing leg cramps, chances are your body is screaming for magnesium. In fact, up to 80% of type 2 diabetics have a magnesium deficiency. (Leg Cramps, Magnesium Deficiency, Type 2 Diabetes)

The Importance Of A Daily Multivitamin
In research conducted in Germany, diets of type 2 diabetic patients were analyzed and found to be deficient in one or more of 22 nutrients evaluated. More alarming, a whopping 97 percent of the diabetic patients did not obtain three to seven nutrients in the recommended amounts from their diets. (Diabetes Nutrition, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes)

Carbohydrate Counting
I am a diabetic and I just don't know how to count carbs. (Diabetic Diet, Low Carbohydrate Diet, Diabetic Meal Planning)
