Diabetes: The Other "Silent Killer"
Like high blood pressure, diabetes is a disease that sneaks up on millions of Americans. It's increasingly recognized as a major cause of death and disability, yet many who suffer from diabetes are unaware they even have it until they experience a debilitating side effect of the disease. (High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, Stroke, Nerve Damage)

Beware of High Blood Pressure
Uncontrolled diabetes contributes to the accelerated buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis), and it plays a prominent role in the development of high blood pressure. High blood pressure (hypertension) is reported more often in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics than in the general population. (Diabetes Education and Diabetic Nutrition)

Blood Pressure - The Stats
Half of all Americans 55 and older have high blood pressure rising to 63 percent after age 65. Three-fourths of African Americans over 65 have it. (High Blood Pressure, Stroke)

Fish-Oil Supplements Plus Regular Aerobic Exercise Benefit Overweight Patients
In overweight patients, fish oil supplements and regular aerobic exercise reduced body fat and improved cardiovascular and metabolic health, according to the results of a new study. (High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, High Triglycerides)

Diabetes-Related Heart Problems
Diabetes is only one factor that increases a person's risk for heart disease. Other factors include smoking, high cholesterol (high triglycerides), low HDL (or "good" cholesterol), being overweight, high blood pressure, your age, being male, and having a family history of heart disease.  Awareness of diabetes symptoms (diabetic symptoms) can go far in preventing the complications of diabetes. (diabetis)

Explaining About Diabetes
Diabetes - or to give it its full name, diabetes mellitus - is a common condition in which the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body is unable to use it properly. This is because the body's method of converting glucose into energy is not working as it should. Learn more about the two main types of diabetes. (Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes Symptoms)

Glucose and Immunity
Eating sugar also reduces the body's ability to fight infections. In 1908, researchers noted that diabetics were more susceptible than non-diabetics to infection. It took researchers until 1942 to discover that the bacteria-engulfing white blood cells of diabetics were essentially sleeping on the job. (Blood Sugar and Glucose and Diabetes Diet)

Cinnamon: The Spice That Cuts Cholesterol and Blood Sugar
Can cinnamon reduce blood sugar levels? The latest diabetic nutrition information regarding the effect of cinnamon on blood sugar reveals encouraging news. (Diabetes Diet and Diabetes Management)

10 Terms To Learn By Heart
When assessing cardiovascular health, here are ten terms you will want to be familiar with. (Heart Attack, Stroke, High Cholesterol, High Triglycerides)

Why Should You Care About Your Blood Sugar?
Unless you're diabetic, chances are you haven't given a moment's thought to your blood sugar before now. So why should you care about it? (Type 2 Diabetes, Blood Sugar Levels)

A Growing Epidemic: Taking Aim at Managing Blood Sugar
The loss of insulin sensitivity can be decreased with the right nutrients. Numerous vitamins, minerals, herb and antioxidants have been studied for their efficacy at promoting healthy blood sugar and protecting cells from the damage of elevated blood sugars with favorable results. (Chromium, Fenugreek, Gymnema sylvestre, Vanadyl)

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)

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)

Tips to Reduce Triglycerides
You have your cholesterol levels under control, but now your doctor says your triglycerides are still high. Triglycerides, like cholesterol, are blood fats. Research suggests that high levels increase risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Learn what normal levels are and how to reach your goal. (Heart Health, Diabetic Nutrition)
