Diabetes Problems "Vitamin Deficiency Link"
A simple vitamin deficiency may be the cause of many of the side effects of diabetes, a study suggests. Researchers found people with diabetes expelled thiamine - vitamin B1 - from their bodies at 15 times the normal rate in a study of 94 people. (Vitamin Deficiency, Thiamine, Heart Disease, Eye Disease)

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)

Numbness and Tingling
Pain, numbness, tingling and pain that don't go away can usually be traced to a damaged sheath, inflammation, compression or an injury to the nerves themselves-particularly to the peripheral nerves, which lead to the arms and legs. Those with Diabetes Type I and Type II should be aware of these common signs of diabetic neuropathy.

Are You At Risk For Vitamin B-12 Deficiency?
Vitamin B-12 deficiency can lead to anemia, nerve damage, tiredness, weakness, depression, weight loss, and numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. (Neuropathy, Type 2 Diabetes, Vitamin B-12)

ADA Survey Finds Lack of Neuropathy Awareness
A new national survey commissioned by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) reveals that, while the majority of people with diabetes experience symptoms associated with diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage) -- only a small minority have been diagnosed with this condition. And, a staggering 56% of patients have never even heard of diabetic neuropathy. (neuropathy symptoms, diabetes care, diabetes statistics)

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)

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)

Diabetes and Hearing Loss
Research reveals that people with uncontrolled Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes are twice as likely as others to experience hearing loss. The best way to protect yourself against hearing loss related to Diabetes is to maintain good control of your blood sugar. (Diabetic Complications, Hearing Loss, Deafness, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes)

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)

Coping With Nerve Pain - B Vitamin Relief
When you lack B vitamins, you may suffer pain in your hands or feet, signs of what's called peripheral neuropathy. The good news: B supplements can help your nerves calm down and stop screaming with pain. About 15 million Americans suffer from neuropathy, a nerve problem that can damage the nervous system and cause unrelenting aches and pains. In particular, people suffering from diabetes may suffer peripheral neuropathy when the sugar in their blood reaches and remains at dangerous levels. (Neuropathy and Diabetes Management)

Diabetic Nerve Change Begins Early
Recent research reports subtle changes in nerve conduction as the first reliable sign of nerve complications from diabetes.  The researchers said that change can be measured long before other symptoms or signs of nerve damage develop. About half of people with diabetes develop some type of neuropathy caused indirectly by high blood sugar levels. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Neuropathy Symptoms, Diabetes Research)

Why You Shouldn't Wait
People with type 2 diabetes - often bungle, misunderstand, or simply ignore the crucial moment when blood sugar tests reveal that diabetes is progressing. (Diabetic Complications, Heart Attack, Stroke)

Diabetes Alert: Halt Digestion Distress
If you've got diabetes and also have digestive discomfort--such as tummy pain, gas, bloating, heartburn, constipation, or diarrhea--don't overlook this hidden cause: uncontrolled blood sugar. Read more about what you can do. (Diabetes Education and Diabetic Meal Planning)

Alpha Lipoic Acid
A little known but extremely powerful antioxidant nutrient is available in supplemental form called alpha lipoic acid. Alpha lipoic acid appears to be a wonder nutrient and it seems to work particularly well in diabetic patients. (Alpha Lipoic Acid, Diabetes Research, Diabetic Complications, Neuropathy)

21 Million Americans (7%) Have Diabetes, CDC Finds
Nearly 21 million Americans have diabetes, most of them the type-2 variety associated with being overweight, too little exercise and poor diet, reported the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (Type 2 Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, Syndrome X, Diabetes Statistics)
