Coenzyme Q10 and L-Carnitine
Coenzyme Q10 is especially abundant in heart muscle, and it is an excellent antioxidant, about four times more potent than vitamin E in some studies. Another supplement that helps the heart is L-carnitine. (Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood Pressure, Angina)

Men, Moods And Diabetes
As men age their hormonal health changes dramatically as testosterone levels are depleted and oestrogen levels rise. This is known as Andropause. When these hormonal changes are also compounded with the blood sugar fluctuations of type 2 diabetes, some unusual patterns of mood and emotions can manifest in older men. (Type 2 Diabetes, Andropause, Testosterone)

Slight Weight Loss Reduces Diabetes Risk Dramatically
When a person is overweight, insulin cannot work as effectively to keep blood glucose levels normal because the body becomes resistant to the action of its own insulin. Lifestyle modification can reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes by 58% in people at high risk for the disease. (Type 2 Diabetes Diet)

Numbness and Tingling
Pain, numbness, tingling and pain that don't go away can usually be traced to a damaged sheath, inflammation, compression or an injury to the nerves themselves-particularly to the peripheral nerves, which lead to the arms and legs. Those with Diabetes Type I and Type II should be aware of these common signs of diabetic neuropathy.

Diabetes and Colorectal Cancer
People with diabetes may be three times more likely to develop colorectal cancer, a recent study shows. Almost 10,000 adults between the ages of 45 and 79 were tested for a marker in the blood sugar, then were followed up six years later. Researchers found that those with diabetes or abnormal glucose metabolism were more likely to develop bowel cancer. (Diabetes Research)

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)

Liver Disease: Are You At Risk?
Generally, when you think of someone who has liver disease, you think of someone who abuses alcohol. You may be surprised to learn that fatty liver disease is often present in people who drink little or no alcohol. Nonalcoholic fatty liver is present in approximately 10 to 20 percent of Americans, and the incidence in type 2 diabetes may be as high as 50 percent. (Liver Disease, Diabetic Complications, Type 2 Diabetes)

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)

Diabetes and Hearing Loss
Research reveals that people with uncontrolled Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes are twice as likely as others to experience hearing loss. The best way to protect yourself against hearing loss related to Diabetes is to maintain good control of your blood sugar. (Diabetic Complications, Hearing Loss, Deafness, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes)

How to Get a Good Night's Sleep
Occasional sleeplessness is a very common concern. I used to recommend Melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate your "body clock"; Valerian, an herb with mild sedative effects; or L-Theanine, an amino acid with profound relaxing properties. Each of these worked for some people, but not everyone. Then I tried them in combination, and bingo! For the majority of people, this combo engenders a good night's sleep. (Melatonin, Valarian, Sleep Disorders, Sleep Theraperies)

Waking Up With High Blood Glucose Levels
Morning readings can be so frustrating! Do you go to bed with a blood glucose of 120 mg/dL (6.6 mmol/L) and wake up with a blood glucose of 170 (9.4 mmol/L) or more? Is this happening in spite of following your diet, exercise and taking your medications as your doctor prescribed? Well, don't worry; all this may be happening due to the Dawn Phenomenon or the Somogyi Effect. (Diabetes Management and High Blood Sugar)

Type 2 Review
If you've  become accustomed to the blood sugar roller coaster unleashed by refined sugars and processed foods, you've probably had fleeting thoughts about the possibility of developing type 2 diabetes. Perhaps other factors also put you at risk for diabetes. But you should know that relatively simple lifestyle modifications can prevent type 2 diabetes. ( Diabetic Risk Factors, Diabetic Symptoms, Preventing Diabetes)

Frozen Shoulder
A body in motion tends to stay in motion, and a body at rest tends to stay at rest. Such is the case with your shoulder and a condition called adhesive capsulitis. Adhesive capsulitis is more commonly known as frozen shoulder.  Diabetes is a risk factor for frozen shoulder, although precisely why that's so is a subject the medical community is still researching. (Diabetic Complications, Diabetes Care)

7 Ways To Make A Change
Ready to make a resolution for better health in the coming year? Here are seven great ways to get started. (Diabetic Diet, Exercise, Stress Management)

High Blood Sugar - A Sticky Situation
Think about what happens when you spill honey; it gets on your fingers, sticks to everything you touch, and generally gums up your entire kitchen counter. Now imagine a honey spill taking place inside your bloodstream - which is essentially what high blood sugar is. (Diabetic Complications, Neuropathy, Cardiovascular Disease)

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.
