10 Tips For A Healthful Holiday
Follow these 10 suggestions to celebrate the season and enjoy your favorite foods while staying on top of your diabetes. (Diabetic Meal Planning, Exercise)

Carnitine - Fuel For High-Energy Living
What do college students, fitness enthusiasts and people who worry about getting older have in common? They-and many others-can benefit from L-carnitine, a nutrient found in many energy drinks and in dietary supplements designed to support exercise performance and a long life free of heart disease and other age-related maladies. (Diabetic Nutrition, Exercise, Heart Disease)

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.

Water Is Key To Weight Loss And Good Health
Water is crucial to any fitness or weight-loss regimen. When you exercise, water helps your body convert excess fat to energy and helps your kidneys flush out waste products from the extra fat and calories you burn.  Water also keeps your body from retaining excess fluid. (Diet & Exercise)

More Exercise Equals Greater Benefits for Diabetics
People with type 2 diabetes can significantly improve their health and reduce medical costs by walking at least three miles each day, according to Italian researchers. Read more about the benefits of simply walking. (Diabetes Research and Exercise)

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)

Study Finds Link Between Alzheimer's, Diabetes
A statistical analysis found that people with diabetes had a much higher rate of developing Alzheimer's disease than those who don't have diabetes. Age is still the greatest risk factor for developing Alzheimer's. One in 10 Americans over 65 and nearly half of those over 85 have the incurable, progressive brain disease.

Physical Activity: Why Exercise?
Increasing your physical activity is one of the most helpful things you can do for yourself, especially if you have diabetes. This doesn't necessarily mean joining a health club and working out, but rather adding daily routines that can boost your activity level, from walking the dog to taking the stairs instead of the elevator. (Exercise and Diabetes Education)

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) 

Diabetes Heart Risk "Equivalent To 15 Years Aging"
Diabetics are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease, one of the world's biggest killers, 15 years earlier than other people. (Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetic Complications)

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
CoQ10 has the ability to protect and strengthen the heart and lower blood pressure. CoQ10 is a vital enzyme, a catalyst to the production of energy in our cells. Without it, our cells simply won't work. (Coenzyme Q10, High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, Angina)

Explaining About Diabetes
Diabetes - or to give it its full name, diabetes mellitus - is a common condition in which the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body is unable to use it properly. This is because the body's method of converting glucose into energy is not working as it should. Learn more about the two main types of diabetes. (Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes Symptoms)

Diabetes & Alcohol Consumption Information
Did you know that drinking less that two alcohol drinks per week can bring on nerve damage?  In addition, alcohol spurs the liver to make more triglycerides and that even light drinking (two four-ounce glasses of wine per week) can raise triglyceride levels. (Information from the American Diabetes Association)

Olive Oil Makers Can Advertise Heart Benefit
The monounsaturated fat in olive oil may reduce the chances of suffering coronary heart disease, the Food and Drug Administration said Monday, opening the door to revised food labels. As long as people don't increase the number of calories they consume daily, the FDA found "limited but not conclusive evidence" suggesting reduced risk of coronary heart disease when people replace foods high in saturated fat with the monounsaturated fat in olive oil. (Diabetes Education and Diabetes News)

Menopause and Blood Sugar Control
If you have finally figured out how to control your blood glucose levels through a combination of meal planning, exercise, and oral diabetes medications or insulin, you should realize that menopause can throw your diabetes management plan out of balance. (Women's Health, Diabetes Management)

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.
