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)

Vitamin E Helps Combat Heart Attacks For Those With Diabetes
A new study has indicated that about 40 percent of diabetic patients can reduce their risk of heart attacks and of dying from heart disease by taking vitamin E supplements.

Sorbitol: A Hazard For Diabetics
Conversion of glucose to sorbitol is greatly accelerated in diabetics, and that can cause dangerous complications over time. Since sorbitol can't exit from your cells very fast, and is not used in the body, it accumulates and attracts water. This causes the cells to swell, which can result in nerve, eye, kidney and blood vessel damage, as well as development of cataracts. (Sorbitol, Diabetic Complications, Type 2 Diabetes, Artificial Sweetener)

Why B1 May Protect Diabetics
Can taking thiamine help prevent diabetic kidney disease? Recent studies show that high-dose supplementation with vitamin B1 prevents the development of diabetic kidney disease (nephropathy) in rats with toxin-induced diabetes. This study, combined with others with similar results, lends support to taking high dose thiamine supplements to ward off diabetic complications. (Diabetes Education)

A1C - An Important Blood Test
The fasting blood sugar test (FBS), which is still the most commonly performed test for Diabetes, does not reflect the true picture of diabetic control over a long period of time. The glycated hemoglobin a1c test is a more accurate diabetes test to reflect overall blood sugar control. (A1C or aIc, blood sugar testing)

Hyperglycemia (in Juvenile Diabetes)
Diabetic adolescents are especially susceptible to hyperglycemia, since hormonal levels are in flux and many adolescents exhibit erratic eating and sleeping patterns. Be able to recognize the signs of hyperglycemia. (Diabetic child) 

Borderline Diabetes
Although borderline diabetes is not classed as diabetes,  the risk of developing other diabetic complications such as coronary heart disease is equal to that of any patient in the diabetic category.

Sustained High Blood Glucose May Damage Brain's Key Memory Center
An inability to quickly bring down high levels of sugar in the blood is associated with poor memory and may help explain some of the memory loss that occurs as we age, according to a new study by NYU School of Medicine researchers. The study raises the possibility that exercise and weight loss, which help control blood sugar levels, may be able to reverse some of the memory loss that accompanies aging. (Diabetes Research and High Blood Sugar)

Diabetic Neuropathy: What Can I Do About It?
People who don't control (or can't control) their blood sugar very well seem more likely to get diabetic neuropathy. Symptoms can include numbness in your feet and toes, pain in your legs, a feeling of lightheadedness that causes you to fall, diarrhea and constipation and failure to get erections (in men).

Many Diabetics Not Controlling Blood Sugar
This year, specialists for the first time are urging every diabetic over age 50 to get tested for the leg disease, called peripheral arterial disease or PAD. Studies suggest one in three diabetics over age 50 may have PAD. Anybody can get PAD. At least 12 million Americans are thought to have it, most of them undiagnosed.

Developing An Age Reduction Plan
Type I diabetics as well as Type II diabetics who take charge of their condition, vigilantly keeping their blood sugar levels within normal ranges, can significantly reduce the manifestations of premature aging. By managing diet, insulin, and exercise-- diabetics can avoid much of the aging that high blood sugar causes. No matter what ails you, the aging damage that a chronic condition causes is always improved by proper management.

Vitamin C: An Efficient Way To Lower Sorbitol Levels
Attempts to prevent sorbitol accumulation with drugs have failed due to severe side effects. In contrast, vitamin C is able to accomplish what these drugs could not - safe and effective inhibition of sorbitol accumulation. (Vitamin C, Sorbitol, Diabetes Nutrition)

Diabetic Men Have Low Testosterone Levels
According to this study, after adjusting for waist-hip ratios, diabetic men were 3 times as likely as nondiabetic men to have low free testosterone levels and twice as likely to have low total testosterone levels. (Type 2 Diabetes, Testosterone, Diabetic Complications)

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)

Diabetics Have A 75% B1 Deficiency Leading To Vascular Problems
A thiamine (Vitamin B1) deficiency may be key to vascular problems for diabetic patients. FDA panel says Avandia offers benefits to people with type 2 disease, but...? (Diabetes Research, Vascular Problems, Low Plasma Thiamine)
