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)

Diabetes: The Other "Silent Killer"
Like high blood pressure, diabetes is a disease that sneaks up on millions of Americans. It's increasingly recognized as a major cause of death and disability, yet many who suffer from diabetes are unaware they even have it until they experience a debilitating side effect of the disease. (High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, Stroke, Nerve Damage)

Bowel Cancer Risk Higher for Men with Diabetes
Having diabetes apparently raises men's risk of developing colorectal cancer. After factoring in age and other variables, the researchers found that diabetes was associated with a 49 percent higher likelihood of developing both colon and rectal cancer. (Diabetic Complications, Colon Cancer)

Diabetes Diet
The more we've learned about diabetes, the more we've come to understand that those who suffer from it don't need to be on a specific diet, but rather they should follow certain guidelines for eating. By doing so, they'll better control their diabetes and general health. (Diabetes Diet and Diabetic Meal Planning)

Diabetes Projections Exceed Estimates
An estimated 246 million people in the world have diabetes, and within 20 years the disease could afflict 380 million people, the International Diabetes Federation reported. (Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes Statistics)

Diabetes Tied to Enlarged Prostate
Researchers report that, BPH, or benign prostate hyperplasia, is a common condition in older men, but the risk of developing the condition seems to be increased by obesity and high blood sugar levels. (BPH, Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, Diabetic Complications)

De-Stress To Decrease Risk Of Diabetes -
Researchers are slowly zeroing in on the long-suspected link between stress and type-2 diabetes, which accounts for 90 percent of all diabetes cases. Anxiety is now believed to exacerbate diabetes by raising levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which regulates insulin and blood-sugar levels. (Stress, Type 2 Diabetes)

How Stress Affects People With Diabetes
With people with diabetes, stress can alter blood glucose levels, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) notes. It does this in two ways. First, people under stress may not take good care of themselves. Second, stress hormones may also alter blood glucose levels directly. (Type 2 Diabetes, Stress)

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)

The Diabetes-Parkinson's Connection
Finnish researchers have turned up a disturbing link between diabetes and Parkinson's disease, the nervous system disorder that leads to muscle tremors and paralysis. (Diabetic Complications, Parkinson's Disease, Nervous System Disorders)

Erectile Dysfunction and Diabetes: Keys to Prevention and Treatment
Erectile dysfunction is a common complication of diabetes. You can reduce your risk of developing erectile dysfunction, prevent it from worsening and, in many cases, safely and effectively treat it. (Erectile Dysfunction, Diabetic Complications, Neuropathy, Cardiovascular Disease)

Vitamin Deficiency Common In Diabetes
Something like three out of every five patients with type 2 diabetes show signs of vitamin D deficiency. Widespread screening for vitamin D deficiency or routine vitamin D supplementation should be seriously considered for people with diabetes according to a recent report. (Diabetic Nutrition and Diabetes Diet)

ADA Blood Sugar Goals for Diabetes
Are you wondering what your blood sugar goals should be? These goals provided by the American Diabetes Association are determined from studies that examined the effects of near-normal blood sugar levels on the rates of diabetic complications. (Blood Sugar Level and Diabetes Management)

Frozen Shoulder and Diabetes
Diabetes is known to affect the shoulder in several ways. Frozen shoulder seems to be the most common - with up to 20% of diabetic patients developing it at some time or other.  Diabetics not only get frozen shoulder more often than others but it lasts longer and is more painful for them when they do. (Diabetic Complications, Diabetes Care, Diabetes Treatment)

Eye Disease Before Diabetes?
Eye disease (retinopathy) commonly associated with diabetes may actually develop in people before the diabetes itself, say researchers. (Retinopathy, Diabetic Complications)

Dictionary Search Results
microalbumin (MY-kro-al-BYOO-min)
small amounts of the protein called albumin in the urine detectable with a special lab test.

nerve conduction studies
tests used to measure for nerve damage; one way to diagnose neuropathy.

oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT)
a test to diagnose pre-diabetes and diabetes. The oral glucose tolerance test is given by a health care professional after an overnight fast. A blood sample is taken, then the patient drinks a high-glucose beverage. Blood samples are taken at intervals for 2 to 3 hours. Test results are compared with a standard and show how the body uses glucose over time.

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.

fluorescein angiography (fluh-RESS-ee-in an-gee-AH-grah-fee)
a test to examine blood vessels in the eye; done by injecting dye into an arm vein and then taking photos as the dye goes through the eye's blood vessels.
