Carnitine - Fuel For High-Energy Living
What do college students, fitness enthusiasts and people who worry about getting older have in common? They-and many others-can benefit from L-carnitine, a nutrient found in many energy drinks and in dietary supplements designed to support exercise performance and a long life free of heart disease and other age-related maladies. (Diabetic Nutrition, Exercise, Heart Disease)

Magnesium Is Important For Heart Health
Since magnesium is required for muscle contraction, and the heart is a muscle, the mineral is related to heart abnormalities and even to heart attacks. Magnesium depletion predisposes one to hypertension and cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) and may predispose to narrowing of blood vessels and perhaps myocardial infarction (damage to heart muscle, which often precedes a heart attack). Read more about the importance of magnesium in your daily diet. (Heart Disease and Diabetes Nutrition)

Peripheral Neuropathy Explained
Perhaps because it's poorly understood and not commonly discussed, peripheral neuropathy is sometimes called the "silent disease".  Yet it affects more people than rheumatoid arthritis-a much better known ailment-with just as severe consequences in its worst form. (Neuropathy and Diabetes Education)

Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Cinnamon Extract, Vanadium & Chromium
If you are trying to get your carbohydrate-craving and weight-storing chemistry under control, gymnema may be of benefit. Bitter melon can help by improving blood sugar balance and reducing the amount of sugars in the blood. A compound in cinnamon bark has been shown to increase glucose metabolism. Research on vanadium indicates that it may produce insulin-like activities in the body, making it of potential value for those with diabetes, insulin resistance, and metabolic syndrome. Chromium is thought to stimulate fat metabolism and to have a lowering effect on cholesterol and triglyceride levels. (Diabetic Nutrition, Diabetic Product)

Type 2 Diabetes and Triglycerides
The combination of high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol and central obesity are the hallmarks of the metabolic syndrome diabetic dyslipidemia, which occurs in 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes. The frightening significance of this combination of risk factors is the marked incidence in these people of premature death from heart disease. (Type 2 Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity)

It's Complicated - Spotting The Conditions That May Come With Diabetes
There is good news for those with diabetes. "People are living longer; there's less heart disease, fewer amputations and less eye disease," says Richard Jackson, M.D., senior physician at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston. The key is catching associated problems early. (Neuropathy, Retinopathy, Heart Attack, Stroke)

Drug Induced Coenzyme Q10 Deficiency
The benefits of pharmaceutical therapy are widespread and in many cases life-saving. All of us, however, are familiar with the fact that drug therapy often results in side-effects. How often do we watch a television commercial for a new pharmaceutical agent and find that the last ten seconds consists of a rapid fire, voice over announcement listing a whole host of side-effects?  Or read a magazine advertisement with one page of ad copy and 2 pages of fine print warnings? We've discovered that in many cases these side-effects are "drug-induced nutrient deficiencies"! (CoQ10, Statin, Beta-Blocker, Diuretic, Depression)

Diabetics Can Count On Chromium
Chromium, an essential dietary mineral, plays a central role in how the body uses insulin to burn sugars, carbs, fats, and proteins for energy. Because of this insulin-enhancing role, chromium can be especially helpful in controlling, and sometimes reversing, some of the symptoms of prediabetes and type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes. (Chromium, Type 2 Diabetes, Syndrome X)

The New Silent Epidemic
The number of American adults diagnosed with this disease annually has spiked 54% in the last decade and now stands at an estimated 21 million.  At this very moment approximately one-third of those affected don’t even know they are at risk and it takes an average of 4 to 7 years before they learn the truth.

For Diabetics, Heart Attacks Are Deadlier
A large analysis of clinical studies confirms what doctors have long known: People who have diabetes are at much greater risk of dying after a heart attack than those who don't have the disease, researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston say. (Heart Disease, Diabetic Complications, Severe Heart Attack)

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)

Does Your Body Need Probiotics?
Probiotics are naturally occurring beneficial bacteria located in the intestines, whose job it is to help prevent the harmful bacteria from wreaking havoc. After a few weeks of taking a recommended probiotic supplement and making small changes in her diet, Turner started feeling better than she had in years, affirming her decision to take control of her health with probiotics. (Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Diarrhea, Immune System)

Understanding Insulin Resistance
In people with type 1 diabetes, the beta cells in the pancreas are destroyed by the body's own immune system and can no longer produce any insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the problem is somewhat more complex. The pancreas produces insulin-sometimes more than normal. But the insulin doesn't work properly. The result is the same: the sugar remains in the blood in high concentrations, setting you up for a number of health problems. ( Diabetic Symptoms, blood sugar levels, Syndrome X)

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)

Complications: An Introduction
Diabetes is a complicated disease--complicated to understand, complicated to treat. There are steps you can take to reduce your chances of developing complications, such as keeping your blood glucose and cholesterol levels in a healthy range.(retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, diabetes management)
