Niacin Flushing: A Helpful, Non-Harmful, Reaction in Improving Health
Niacin, or nicotinic acid, is one of two compounds that are categorized as Vitamin B3. The other is niacinamide, or nicotinamide. Niacin flush is an infrequent response to niacin that is completely harmless and easily explained. (Diabetic nutrition, B-Complex, vitamins)

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)

Beware of High Blood Pressure
Uncontrolled diabetes contributes to the accelerated buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis), and it plays a prominent role in the development of high blood pressure. High blood pressure (hypertension) is reported more often in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics than in the general population. (Diabetes Education and Diabetic Nutrition)

Water Works
Do you drink enough water? If you don't, you're affecting almost every aspect of your health.  Experts rank water second only to oxygen as essential for life.  Water promotes good health in many ways, from reducing the risk of certain cancers to improving short-term memory and weight loss.  (Diet & Nutrition)

Sodium and Persons With Diabetes
Persons with diabetes are encouraged to plan a diabetic diet that limits their sodium intake to help prevent or to control high blood pressure. Suggestions for diabetic meal planning that will help toward this goal. (Diabetic Nutrition and Diabetic Cooking)

A Quick Primer on Sugar Alcohols
Sugar alcohol is neither a "sugar" nor an "alcohol." Sugar alcohols affect the blood glucose levels less dramatically than regular table sugar which is why some diet plans allow a certain amount of them. In most people, they quickly add up to too many carbs. (Diabetes Diet, Diabetic Nutrition, Low Carbohydrate Diet)

Benfotiamine
Benfotiamine is a specialized form of Vitamin B1 and has been recognized for its usefulness for those with neuropathy. There are implications that benfotiamine is more beneficial in dealing with peripheral neuropathy than other forms of B1. A number of studies, in fact, have borne this out. (diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, neuropathy treatment, benfotamine)

Carnosine, Acetyl L-Carnitine and Alpha-Lipoic Acid
It is well known that diabetics age prematurely. There is strong evidence that the proper dose of carnosine may help to prevent age-related conditions such as muscle atrophy, eye problems, and neurological degeneration. Numerous studies also reveal the  direct antiaging effects of acetyl-L-carnitine. Alpha-lipoic acid is a vital antioxidant that boosts the power of other antioxidants. Many studies document the benefits of alpha-lipoic acid in treating diabetes. (diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, diabetes management)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid Battles Diabetes
An analysis of recent studies confirms that alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) supplements reduce a variety of neuropathic symptoms common to diabetes, including pain, burning sensation and numbness, and may be even more effective when combined with other antioxidants. (preventing neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, diabetic neuropathy)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Peripheral Neuropathy
There are probably more studies attesting to the benefits of  alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) for dealing with peripheral neuropathy than studies for any other nutrient. ALA is known as a "universal antioxidant." In addition to its remarkable abilities as a natural antioxidant, it is noted for protecting nerves from oxidative damage and inflammation. (preventing neuropathy, diabetic nutrition)

Acetyl-L-Carnitine May Be Important for Nerve Health in Diabetic Patients
Recent research studies indicate that Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) may improve pain and nerve regeneration in patients with chronic diabetic neuropathy. These studies demonstrate that ALC treatment is effective in alleviating symptoms, particularly pain, and improves nerve fiber regeneration. (Neuropathy Symptoms, Neuropathy Product, Diabetic Nutrition)

Inositol
Inositol is a water soluble B vitamin that is essential for helping the cells in the body communicate and is involved in cellular responses to the actions of certain body hormones and chemicals that are released from nerves, called neurotransmitters. Experiments are currently looking at altering the levels of inositol and other chemicals to reduce nerve damage in diabetes. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Diabetic Nutrition, Prevention Neuropathy)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid- Nature's Perfect Antioxidant
Alpha-lipoic acid is an approved drug in Germany for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. Although alpha-lipoic acid's primary effect in improving neuropathy is thought to be the result of its antioxidant effects, it has also been shown to lead to an improvement in blood sugar metabolism, improve blood flow to peripheral nerves, and actually stimulate the regeneration of nerve fibers. (diabetes treatment, diabetic nutrition, preventing neuropathy)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid: Extra Help Taming Diabetes
Researchers have discovered that the potent antioxidant, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, may be an effective treatment for a common complication of diabetes, known as diabetic neuropathy, which develops when high blood sugar levels damage delicate nerve endings. It may also help control blood sugar in diabetics, possibly by lowering insulin levels and increasing the transport of sugar into cells. (Diabetic Nutrition, Diabetic Product, Diabetic Neuropathy)

Tips to Reduce Triglycerides
You have your cholesterol levels under control, but now your doctor says your triglycerides are still high. Triglycerides, like cholesterol, are blood fats. Research suggests that high levels increase risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Learn what normal levels are and how to reach your goal. (Heart Health, Diabetic Nutrition)
