The Fish Factor
That salmon sizzling on your grill is much more than a delicious meal. The pink steak's fish oil (also available as supplements and prescriptions) may help heart attack sufferers live longer lives. (Heart Attack, Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetic Complications)

How Can Selenium Help the Thyroid?
The thyroid produces hormones that regulate heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and weight. Iodine and selenium are critical minerals for maintaining proper function of the thyroid gland. Selenium is found naturally in many foods and is also available in supplement form. (Thyroid Disease, Goiter, T3, T4)

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)

Quercetin and Bromelain for Allergies
Despite dramatic advances in medical technology, chronic diseases are on the rise. Asthma, a life-threatening respiratory condition, and other allergy related diseases, have now reached epidemic proportions, increasing by an astonishing 74% over the last decade, affecting over 15 million Americans. (Allergies, Sinusitis, Asthma)

Managing Allergies and Sinus Problems Effectively
The number of persons suffering from some form of allergy has continued to steadily rise for the last few decades. Conservatively, it is estimated that 70 million people suffer from allergies in the United States and another 40 million in Europe. The good news is that we can mitigate many of the symptoms caused via the allergic response, allowing the sufferer to oftentimes live a completely normal life, symptom free.

Carnosine Highlights
A breakthrough in anti-aging science, L-carnosine is quickly becoming one of the most popular anti-aging supplements in the world today. (L-carnosine, anti-aging, anti-glycation)

Vitamin B12 Prevents Senility
What you don't know about vitamin B12 can literally take your mind away. Unfortunately, it's a well-kept secret that a deficiency of vitamin B12, which is alarmingly common, can lead to neurological damage, including disorientation, memory problems, and dementia. (Senility, Dementia, Memory)

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)

Vitamin C: Important for Diabetics
Vitamin C protects against Syndrome X, diabetes, and their accompanying disorders in many different ways. It works most directly by blocking many of the deleterious effects of elevated glucose and insulin. Important information for diabetes management and diabetes nutrition. (Diabetic Nutrition)

Dieters Weigh Choices: South Beach vs. Atkins
Diabetics have been aware of the benefit of low-carb diets for years. Now the general public has embraced the concept.  Agatston, author of The South Beach Diet, takes the approach of urging dieters to eat "the right carbs" - fruits and vegetables and, eventually, whole grains - but it still means forgoing the "white carbs" - white potatoes, white bread, white rice and pasta (except for whole wheat pasta) - for the rest of your life.

LADA or Diabetes 1.5
Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA), also called slow-onset diabetes or diabetes 1.5, has similarities both to type 1 and type 2. Often it is not recognized as LADA or type 1.5, because at first it looks like and reacts positively to treatments for type 2. However, it ends up revealing itself as an autoimmune form of diabetes, more like type 1. (Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes Education)

High Blood Pressure and Diabetes; A Deadly Duo
High blood pressure (or hypertension) isn't called "the silent killer" for nothing. Oftentimes people will have it and not even know it until it's too late.  For most people with diabetes, keeping blood pressure below 130/80 will help prevent problems.

How Stress Affects Blood Sugar
Researchers have linked dozens of physical symptoms to stress overload, from fatigue to weight gain. Add another symptom to that list: the risk for high blood sugar. Learn more about how to take control. (Diabetes Management and High Blood Sugar and Stress)

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)

Sight Lines
In the U.S., 1 million blind adults ages 40 and older, and 2.4 million adults who are visually impaired, do without life's images. By 2020, there could be 5.5 million such cases, according to the National Eye Institute (NEI). Here's a rundown of the leading causes of blindness and vision impairment. (Diabetic Complications, Diabetic Retinopathy)

alpha cellĀ  (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.

acarboseĀ  (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)
