Type I Diabetes And Insulin Resistance
Researchers have discovered  that people with type 1 diabetes often have insulin resistance-- a hallmark of type 2 diabetes and something that dramatically raises the odds for heart disease.  (Diabetes News- Hyperinsulinemia)

Health Consequences of Too Much Fast Food
Eating fast food regularly increases the odds of becoming obese and/or a type 2 diabetic. That's the conclusion of the CARDIA study (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults), which followed 3,031 young adults for 15 years.  (Diabetic Meal Planning and Type 2 Diabetes)

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.

Smoking May Increase Risk of Diabetes
Smoking may increase the risk of developing diabetes, according to new research by investigators at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and colleagues. The surprising finding emerged when researchers examined the relationship between smoking and diabetes among participants in a major national study. (diabetes research, insulin resistance, cause of diabetes)

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)

Chromium
Excessive blood sugar promotes diabetes and all the destruction that goes with it. Studies show that if you have high blood sugar, chromium supplements will bring it down. Chromium increases the power of insulin to process sugar, so you need less insulin to do the job, and blood levels drop. (Chromium, High Blood Sugar, Diabetic Nutrition)

Red Wine Ingredient - Resveratrol - Fights Diabetes In Mice
Even relatively low doses of resveratrol--a chemical found in the skins of red grapes and in red wine--can improve the sensitivity of mice to the hormone insulin, according to a  new report.  As insulin resistance is often characterized as the most critical factor contributing to the development of type 2 diabetes, the findings "provide a potential new therapeutic approach for preventing or treating" both conditions, the researchers said. (Diabetes Research, Type 2 Diabetes, Insulin Resistance)

Causes of Type II Diabetes
Unlike people with type I diabetes who become unable to produce insulin, people with type II diabetes produce insulin. But, either the body does not respond to insulin's action-it's resistant-or there is just not enough insulin to go around-there's too much body for the amount of insulin that's made. Either problem leads to the same outcome: high levels of glucose in the blood. (Type 2  Diabetes and Diabetes Education)

An Avoidable Aging Bombshell
It's impossible to hold on to your youth if excesses of insulin are raging through your bloodstream.  Insulin resistance doesn't happen just because you're aging and you don't have to get it.  Approximately 25 percent of all seemingly normal, healthy nondiabetic older Americans have so-called insulin resistance. If you do have it, you can correct it before it does irreversible damage. (Diabetes education-- hyperinsulinemia)

Fenugreek - Enhances Carb Metabolism for Diabetics
An extract from Fenugreek enhances carb metabolism showing promise for dieters and those with diabetes and insulin resistance. (Diabetes Food and Fenugreek)

VANADIUM: Diabetes Therapy
The case for nutrients to replace pharmaceuticals is powerfully strengthened by the recent explosion of knowledge about a trace mineral that dramatically helps diabetics: vanadium. (Vanadyl Sulfate, Diabetic Product)

The Benefits of Magnesium - The Diabetes Connection
An exciting body of research strongly suggests that supplementation with magnesium can almost certainly help prevent or maybe even treat insulin resistance and other cardiovascular problems in people with diabetes.

Liver Disease: Are You At Risk?
Generally, when you think of someone who has liver disease, you think of someone who abuses alcohol. You may be surprised to learn that fatty liver disease is often present in people who drink little or no alcohol. Nonalcoholic fatty liver is present in approximately 10 to 20 percent of Americans, and the incidence in type 2 diabetes may be as high as 50 percent. (Liver Disease, Diabetic Complications, Type 2 Diabetes)

Balancing Blood Sugar Metabolism
Scientific evidence continues to mount regarding the effectiveness of natural substances in normalizing blood sugar in diabetics. Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon and Cinnamon Extract show significant impact on normalizing blood glucose levels. (Insulin Resistance)

Type 2 Diabetics' Acidity Heightens Risk For Kidney Stones
Individuals with type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus) are at increased risk for developing kidney stones in general, and have a particular risk for uric-acid stones. (Diabetic Complications and Type 2 Diabetes)

Dictionary Search Results
metabolic syndrome
the tendency of several conditions to occur together, including obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes or pre-diabetes, hypertension, and high lipids.

hyperinsulinemia (HY-per-IN-suh-lih-NEE-mee-uh)
a condition in which the level of insulin in the blood is higher than normal. Caused by overproduction of insulin by the body. Related to insulin resistance.

acanthosis nigricans  (uh-kan-THO-sis NIH-grih-kans)
a skin condition characterized by darkened skin patches; common in people whose body is not responding correctly to the insulin that they make in their pancreas (insulin resistance). This skin condition is also seen in people who have pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes.

insulin resistance
the body's inability to respond to and use the insulin it produces. Insulin resistance may be linked to obesity, hypertension, and high levels of fat in the blood.

premixed insulin
a commercially produced combination of two different types of insulin. See 50/50 insulin and 70/30 insulin.
