How Stress Affects Blood Sugar
Researchers have linked dozens of physical symptoms to stress overload, from fatigue to weight gain. Add another symptom to that list: the risk for high blood sugar. Learn more about how to take control. (Diabetes Management and High Blood Sugar and Stress)

Obesity And High Blood Sugar Linked To Prostate Enlargement
The risk of developing benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), a common condition in older men, increases with obesity and high blood sugar levels. (Obesity, High Blood Sugar, Prostate Disease, Diabetic Complications)

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)

Low Blood Sugar - Hypoglycemia
When people first encounter the diet prescribed for hypoglycemia, they are often baffled by the ban on sugar. They have been given a diagnosis of low blood sugar and yet they must avoid sugar. Hypoglycemia is the opposite of diabetes, and diabetics cannot have sugar, therefore, surely the hypoglycemic sufferer must eat lots of sugar? This is a common misunderstanding.

High Blood Pressure and Diabetes; A Deadly Duo
High blood pressure (or hypertension) isn't called "the silent killer" for nothing. Oftentimes people will have it and not even know it until it's too late.  For most people with diabetes, keeping blood pressure below 130/80 will help prevent problems.

Waking Up With High Blood Glucose Levels
Morning readings can be so frustrating! Do you go to bed with a blood glucose of 120 mg/dL (6.6 mmol/L) and wake up with a blood glucose of 170 (9.4 mmol/L) or more? Is this happening in spite of following your diet, exercise and taking your medications as your doctor prescribed? Well, don't worry; all this may be happening due to the Dawn Phenomenon or the Somogyi Effect. (Diabetes Management and High Blood Sugar)

High Blood Sugar - A Sticky Situation
Think about what happens when you spill honey; it gets on your fingers, sticks to everything you touch, and generally gums up your entire kitchen counter. Now imagine a honey spill taking place inside your bloodstream - which is essentially what high blood sugar is. (Diabetic Complications, Neuropathy, Cardiovascular Disease)

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

Hitting A Nerve
Neuropathy is one of the best arguments to fight blood glucose control. It's a nerve disorder that can affect almost every system in your body. It results from bursts of high blood glucose that cause oxidative stress to the nerves. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Autonomic Neuropathy)

Do You Know About Celiac Disease?
A link between diabetes and celiac disease, both autoimmune disorders, has been recognized for some time. People with type 1 diabetes have a greater risk for developing celiac disease, typically about 1 in 20. (In the general population, including people with type 2 diabetes, the rate may be as high as 1 in 133.) In most cases, diabetes is diagnosed first. (Celiac Disease, Diabetic Complications)

Vitamin D May Prevent Diabetes And Helps Reduce Heart Disease Risk if You're Diabetic
Vitamin D is also an important factor in diabetes. First, having lower levels of vitamin D has been linked to an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. (Type 2 Diabetes, Heart Disease, High Cholesterol)

Iodine Deficiency More Common Than You Think - Are You At Risk?
You may suffer from chronic fatigue and hear “there’s no cure.” Your cholesterol or blood pressure is too high, and nothing short of drugs brings it down. Or the doctor tells you the cysts in your breasts or ovaries lead to cancer. You may have one of these things as a result of a simple iodine deficiency. (Fibrocystic Breast Disease, Dry Eyes, Dry Mouth, Ovarian Cysts, Iodine Deficiency)

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)

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)

Diabetic Ketoacidosis
Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) can occur when you don't have enough insulin to meet your body's needs. Normally your body uses carbohydrate (glucose) for maintenance, but when there isn't enough insulin in your body, your cells can't access the glucose in your blood. Your body then resorts to burning fat in an unhealthy way. Your liver becomes involved in fat-burning, and the by-product is ketones. (Diabetic complications, High blood sugar level)
