Type 1 Diabetes Management
Because your body no longer makes insulin, insulin injections play a big role in your diabetes care plan. News from the American Diabetes Association advises that your type of insulin therapy should relate directly to your health and your lifestyle choices. Diabetis care advice.

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)

Nature's Sweet Benefits
Chalk up another one for Mother Nature. Most people with diabetes rely on drugs and lifestyle modifications to moderate their body chemistry. But a host of natural herbal supplements may further help them manage blood glucose levels, improve their vision, and alleviate a variety of diabetes-related health problems.

Diabetes And Constipation: An Awkward But Real Issue
About one in every four diabetics experience frequent bouts of constipation, making it by far the most common gastrointestinal issue for people with diabetes. The problem afflicts both type 1 and type 2 diabetes sufferers, and is known to be significantly more prevalent among those diabetics who also suffer from nerve damage. (Diabetic Complications, Type 2 Diabetes, IBS, Nerve Damage)

Heart Of The Matter: The Care And Feeding Of Old Thumper
Coronary heart disease (CHD) remains the single largest killer of American men and women. One of every five deaths in the United States is caused by heart attacks-in 2004, for example, there was one evey minute. About 38% of the people who experience a heart attack in a given year will die from it. And unless dramatic diet and lifestyle changes are enacted, almost all of the remaining 62% will either die of a second heart attack or heart failure or suffer a greatly reduced quality of life. (Cardiovascular Disease, Heart Attack)

Getting The Magic Back
High blood sugar damages the blood vessels and nerves that are necessary for normal sexual function and response. Keeping blood sugar under control is vital to preserving your sexual health. (Diabetic Complications, Sexual Health)

Diabetes: Dealing With Holidays
Diabetic nutrition can be a real challenge during holiday festivities. Diabetes food choices are reviewed with practical tips on how to maintain a normal blood sugar level. Sticking to a low carbohydrate diet does not mean missing all the fun!

Stress
Stress results when something causes your body to behave as if it were under attack. When stress occurs, the body prepares to take action. This preparation is called the fight-or-flight response. In people who have diabetes, the fight-or-flight response does not work well. Insulin is not always able to let the extra energy into the cells, so glucose piles up in the blood. (Stress, Diabetic Complications, High Blood Sugar)

Diabetes And The Holidays: Tips To Control Stress And Blood Sugar
Celebrations around the holidays tempt all party-goers to disregard healthy habits, but calorie-laden festivities pose a special challenge for the millions of Americans living with diabetes. Usually managed by diet, exercise and medication, diabetes can get out of control when portion sizes grow and careful food selection is abandoned. (Diabetic Meal Planning, Exercise, Low-Carb Diet)

Natural Help For An Enlarged Prostate
The prostate is a walnut sized gland that sits just below the bladder in men and is an integral part of the male reproductive system. Made up of two lobes and enclosed by a layer of tissue, the prostate goes through two main periods of growth. The first occurs early in puberty, when the prostate doubles in size. At around the age of 35, the gland begins to grow again. This second growth phase often results in what is identified as an enlarged prostate. (Enlarged Prostate, Prostate Disorders, Impotency, Prostatitis)

Weighty Research On Diet Supplements
Researchers in this study that covered a 10-year period found that obese or overweight consumers who took four supplements experienced less weight gain than those who did not use the supplements. Chromium seemed to most help weight control. It helps regulate blood-sugar levels, which keeps appetite in check. (Chromium, Diabetes Nutrition, Weight Loss)

1/3 of Americans Have Pre-Diabetes Syndrome
A condition called insulin resistance syndrome puts people at high risk of diabetes and heart disease. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and acanthosis nigricans (a skin condition) are linked to insulin resistance syndrome. In insulin resistance syndrome, also known as metabolic syndrome or syndrome X, a person loses his or her ability to manage insulin effectively. Know the conditions that can be a sign of diabetes.

Get A "Grrip!": Diabetes and Your Hands
When you hear about the complications of diabetes, you usually hear about your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and feet. But diabetes can affect the muscles and joints of your hands, too. Diabetes-related hand conditions are usually not life-threatening, but they can have a great impact on the quality of your life. (Diabetic Complications, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Stiff-Hand Syndrome, Dupuytren's Contracture)

Dictionary Search Results
conventional therapy
a term used in clinical trials where one group receives treatment for diabetes in which A1C and blood glucose levels are kept at levels based on current practice guidelines. However, the goal is not to keep blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible, as is done in intensive therapy. Conventional therapy includes use of medication, meal planning and exercise, along with regular visits to health care providers.

intensive therapy
a treatment for diabetes in which blood glucose is kept as close to normal as possible through frequent injections or use of an insulin pump; meal planning; adjustment of medicines; and exercise based on blood glucose test results and frequent contact with a person's health care team.

intermittent claudication (IN-ter-MIT-ent CLAW-dih-KAY-shun)
pain that comes and goes in the muscles of the leg. This pain results from a lack of blood supply to the legs and usually happens when walking or exercising.

Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)
a study by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases conducted from 1998 to 2001 in people at high risk for Type 2 diabetes. All study participants had impaired glucose tolerance, also called pre-diabetes, and were overweight. The study showed that people who lost 5 to 7 percent of their body weight through a low-fat, low-calorie diet and moderate exercise (usually walking for 30 minutes 5 days a week) reduced their risk of getting Type 2 diabetes by 58 percent. Participants who received treatment with the oral diabetes drug metformin reduced their risk of getting Type 2 diabetes by 31 percent.
