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)

The Natural Solution For Lowering Your Blood Sugar
Some of the most promising alternative treatments for high blood sugar come from nature's pharmacy, which isn't surprising.  Read more about these all natural alternatives, including Gymnema sylvestre, Fenugreek, Bitter melon, Chromium and Vanadium. (Diabetic Product, Herb for Diabetes and Diabetes Nutrition)

Diabetic Neuropathies
Neuropathies lead to numbness and sometimes pain and weakness in the hands, arms, feet, and legs. Problems may also occur in every organ system, including the digestive tract, heart, and sex organs. An estimated 50 percent of those with diabetes have some form of neuropathy, but not all with neuropathy have symptoms.  (Types of Neuropathy, Proximal Neuropathy, Focal Neuropathy, Neuropathy Treatment)

Sugar Substitutes
This chart lists equivalents for sugar and brand name sugar substitutes. (Diabetic Recipes, Diabetic Cooking, Diabetic Menu, Diabetic Dessert Recipes)

Diabetic Recipes - Low Carb
Low carbohydrate recipes for diabetic meal planning includes Chicken Pecan Salad, Classic Egg Salad, Sloppy Jose, and Cauliflower Kugel. (Diabetes Food and Diabetes Recipe)

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

Mineral Deficiencies And Food Cravings
Clinicians note that deficiencies in certain minerals may trigger carbohydrate/sugar cravings. (Sugar Cravings, Diabetes Nutrition)

Vitamin E And A Healthy Heart
It is now known that low vitamin E levels are linked with elevated blood pressure and high cholesterol. (High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Vitamin E)

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
Research has found that people with heart diseases tend to be deficient in CoQ10. Low levels of CoQ10 have been found in people not only with conditions involving a weak or damaged heart, such as with cardiomyopathy or congestive heart failure, but also in people with high blood pressure. (High Blood Pressure, Congestive Heart Failure, High Cholesterol, Coenzyme Q-10)

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)

Sugar Alcohol
Sugar-free candy as well as as other products using the term "sugar-free" should be evaluated for total carbohydrate content.  Sugar alcohols, though listed by their weight content within the food as listed in the Nutrition Facts panel, are not metabolized (broken down and used for energy) the way true sugars are.  Because sugar alcohols are incompletely absorbed, the FDA allows the labeling and assignment of less energy per gram to these nutritive sweeteners. (Diabetes Diet and Nutrition)

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)

Why You Need the Bs
B-complex vitamins are essential for your body to convert sugar and starches to energy, a chemical process called carbohydrate metabolism.  A shortage of any one of them can cause problems.  Vitamin B6 deficiency has been linked to glucose intolerance, which is an abnormally high rise in blood sugar after eating. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Management)

Glucose Intolerance Reversed by Carnitine Supplement
Supplementing with the nutrient carnitine helps obese animals to clear the extra sugar in their blood, something they had trouble doing on their own, researchers at Duke University Medical Center, North Carolina, report. A team led by Deborah Muoio, Ph.D., of the Duke Sarah W. Stedman Nutrition and Metabolism Center, also performed tests on human muscle cells that showed supplementing with carnitine might help older people with prediabetes, diabetes, and other disorders that make glucose (sugar) metabolism difficult.
