Popular Drugs that Steal Nutrients
Many medications deplete the body of important vitamins and minerals. Depletion of nutrients is among the most common -- and overlooked -- side effects of both over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription drugs. Here’s How to Protect Your Health...

Diets High In Omega-3 Oils Prevent Heart Attacks
Omega-3 fatty acids are lipid structures found abundantly in cold water fish and flaxseed oil. They have been extensively researched for their ability to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease. (Cardiovascular Disease, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Heart Attack)

Good Fats and Bad Fats
Some fats are bad such as saturated fats and trans-fats. However, there's another kind of fat called essential fatty acids - and they are indeed essential. These unsaturated fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fats, make our cell membranes more flexible, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and reduce mortality from heart disease. (Diabetic Nutrition, Essential Fatty Acids, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure)

1/3 of Americans Have Pre-Diabetes Syndrome
A condition called insulin resistance syndrome puts people at high risk of diabetes and heart disease. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and acanthosis nigricans (a skin condition) are linked to insulin resistance syndrome. In insulin resistance syndrome, also known as metabolic syndrome or syndrome X, a person loses his or her ability to manage insulin effectively. Know the conditions that can be a sign of diabetes.

Reduce Your Risk of Memory Loss
Every essential nutrient (those not manufactured by the body) is important in brain function, but antioxidant nutrients which prevent the build-up of cell-destroying free radicals are crucial -- particularly vitamins C, E, selenium, grape seed extract, glutathione peroxidase, and superoxide dismutase (SOD). (Alzheimer's disease education)

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)

Research Touts Blueberries As Brain Food
An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but a daily serving of blueberries can help reduce your risk for dozens of debilitating illnesses, including obesity, cancer and Alzheimer's disease. (Alzheimers, Age-Related Memory Loss, Obesity, Cancer)

Why Trans Fat Is So Bad For You
An American Heart Association study released in 2002 showed that food cooked with trans fat clogs arteries quicker than food cooked in animal-based saturated fat. But trans fat has what researchers are beginning to agree is a more insidious function in the body: It actually reprograms how cells work, causing lifelong damage that can lead to diabetes, stroke, and possibly cancer.  (Diabetic Nutrition, Heart Disease, Syndrome X)

Other Important Supplements - Essential Fatty Acids
There are two main EFA groups: omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. EFAs are components of cell membranes the body needs but cannot manufacture itself. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications, Essential Fatty Acids)

Top Five Ways To Feel Full And Eat Less
It's a common complaint: how can you lose weight if you're hungry all the time? The solution may be easier than you think. Many acts of overeating, in fact, may have less to do with appetite than the sheer amount of food we have on our plate. (Diabetic Meal Planning, High Protein Diet, Depression, Anxiety)

Managing Hypoglycemia - Helpful Supplements (Part II)
This article lists many supplements that are suggested as useful for hypoglycemia in the literature. Outlines the importance of the B vitamins in  metabolizing fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Calcium, chromium, magnesium, manganese, selenium, vitamin C, vitamin E and zinc are discussed.  (Low blood sugar)

Omega-3 Acids Thought To Benefit Dry-Eye Patients
Omega-3 acids may help alleviate some of your dry-eye patients’ symptoms. (Dry Eye)

The Many Benefits of Omega-3's
Flax is a seed that contains alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3s have been shown to reduce heart disease risk and also may help relieve depression and inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, flaxseed contains more plant lignans (a phytoestrogen and a fiber) than any other seed, and lignans may protect against breast, prostate, ovarian, uterine and colon cancer, diabetes and heart disease. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Research)

Hard To Digest
Diabetes related nerve damage can cause mild to severe digestive problems. Neuropathy most commonly affects the arms and legs, but for around half of those who have diabetes, the digestive system is the affected area. Signs, symptoms and dietary solutions are discussed. (diabetic neuropathy, reflux, diabetes meal planning)

More Fractures, Less Bone Density In Premenopausal Women with Diabetes
Premenopausal women who have type 1 diabetes should strongly consider preventive screening for osteoporosis, the researchers of a new study on bone density conclude.  (Women's Health, Diabetic Complications, Juvenile Diabetes)

microalbuminuria (MY-kro-al-BYOO-min-your-EE-ah)
the presence of small amounts of albumin, a protein, in the urine. Microalbuminuria is an early sign of kidney damage, or nephropathy, a common and serious complication of diabetes. The ADA recommends that people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes be tested for microalbuminuria at the time they are diagnosed and every year thereafter; people with type 1 diabetes should be tested 5 years after diagnosis and every year thereafter. Microalbuminuria is usally managed by improving blood glucose control, reducing blood pressure, and modifying the diet.

juvenile diabetes
former term for insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), or Type 1 diabetes.

latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA)
a condition in which Type 1 diabetes develops in adults.

insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM)
former term for Type 1 diabetes.

IDDM (insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus)
former term for Type 1 diabetes.
