Why Every Diabetic Needs to Take Vitamin D
Research shows that low blood levels of vitamin D are linked to a higher risk for developing diabetes. New studies show that even if you already have diabetes, you still need more vitamin D to lower your risk of developing nerve pain (diabetic neuropathy).

Nutritional Management of Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. Fortunately, diabetic retinopathy is a nutritionally responsive disorder. Natural agents can be used to reduce the initial damage to the blood vessels in the retina and enhance integrity. (Diabetes Nutrition and Retinopathy)

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)

Hitting A Nerve
Neuropathy is one of the best arguments to fight blood glucose control. It's a nerve disorder that can affect almost every system in your body. It results from bursts of high blood glucose that cause oxidative stress to the nerves. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Autonomic Neuropathy)

Turn Back The Clock
Will supplements enable you to live longer? The research indicates that they can certainly help. How will you be able to tell as your biological clock moves forward? Pay attention to two clues – your energy levels (and a lack of fatigue) and your good health (in comparison to your peers). Based on the research, these are three of our top youth-preserving nutrients, along with some of the cutting-edge science that put them on our list. (Carnitine, Resveratrol, CoQ10)

Antioxidant Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
A collaborative study between Mayo Clinic and a medical center in Russia found that alpha lipoic acid (ALA) significantly and rapidly reduces the frequency and severity of symptoms of the most common kind of diabetic neuropathy.  (Neuropathy and Diabetic Complications)

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)

Guide To Mighty Brain Fats
To make your brain work at top form, you need a delicate balance of two essential chemical entities--so-called omega-3-type fish oil and omega-6-type vegetable oils. How much you eat of each dictates the architecture and activity of your brain. (Alzheimers, Brain Health, Memory)

Good Fats
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are the "good" fats your body needs to function properly. They provide energy, increase your absorption of nutrients from foods and support the health of your bones, brain, breasts, eyes, heart, immune system, joints, nerves, muscles, prostate and skin. (Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, Eye Disease, Omega Fatty Acids)

Flaxseed Oil Lowers Blood Pressure
Regularly eating a diet supplemented with flaxseed oil may lower blood pressure and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, according to a new study. (Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood Pressure, Diabetic Nutrition)

Fats for Healthy Hearts
You need to know that there are two stories on fats. There are fats that predispose to heart attacks and strokes (because they make our platelets more sticky), but there are others that protect us from heart attacks and strokes. Omega fatty acids are fats that heal.

Good Fats for Low-Carb Living
Your body needs EFAs (essential fatty acids) just as it needs vitamins and minerals. Essential fats are necessary for life, but they must be obtained through diet or supplementation because the body cannot make them. Learn more about why these essential fats are so important for optimal health. (Diabetes Nutrition, Fish Oil, Omega-3)

Why You Need The Omega-3s
The omega-3s protect the heart in several key ways. They reduce inflammation, they are mild blood thinners, slow the heart rate, improve blood-vessel flexibility and improve heart rhythm. (Fish Oil, Heart Disease, Retinopathy)

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)

New Review Endorses CV Benefits of Fish Oil
A new review concludes that there is extensive evidence from three decades of research that fish oils, or more specifically the omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) contained in them, are beneficial for everyone and that it can reduce the risk for total mortality, sudden death, CHD mortality, and cardiovascular mortality by as much as 30%. (Cardiovasular Disease, Omega 3, Fish Oil)

alpha cell  (AL-fa)
a type of cell in the pancreas. Alpha cells make and release a hormone called glucagon. The body sends a signal to the alpha cells to make glucagon when blood glucose falls too low. Then glucagon reaches the liver where it tells it to release glucose into the blood for energy.

acarbose  (AK-er-bose)
an oral medicine used to treat Type 2 diabetes. It blocks the enzymes that digest starches in food. The result is a slower and lower rise in blood glucose throughout the day, especially right after meals. Belongs to the class of medicines called alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. (Brand name: Precose)

glucagon (GLOO-kah-gahn)
a hormone produced by the alpha cells in the pancreas. It raises blood glucose. An injectable form of glucagon, available by prescription, may be used to treat severe hypoglycemia.

islets
groups of cells located in the pancreas that make hormones that help the body break down and use food. For example, alpha cells make glucagon and beta cells make insulin. Also called islets of Langerhans (LANG-er-hahns).

miglitol (MIG-lih-tall)
an oral medicine used to treat Type 2 diabetes. It blocks the enzymes that digest starches in food. The result is a slower and lower rise in blood glucose throughout the day, especially right after meals. Belongs to the class of medicines called alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. (Brand name: Glyset)
