Using Herbs to Manage High Blood Sugar
Sustainable blood sugar control is critical to a diabetic patient’s health over time. Often, as a diabetic patient ages, insulin-reducing medications begin to lose their effectiveness. Treatment with herbs, along with carefully controlled nutrition and daily exercise, can help diabetic patients keep blood sugar levels under control over the long term. (Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Pterocarpus marsupium, High Blood Sugar)

For people with diabetes, kidney disease is often a silent complication that develops over many years, to devasting effect. The good news? You can prevent it or slow its progress. (Kidney Disease, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes)

21 Million Americans (7%) Have Diabetes, CDC Finds
Nearly 21 million Americans have diabetes, most of them the type-2 variety associated with being overweight, too little exercise and poor diet, reported the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (Type 2 Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, Syndrome X, Diabetes Statistics)

Choosing an Oral Diabetes Medication
Generally, you will not use an oral agent if you have type I diabetes. They are usually only prescribed for people with type II diabetes.  Not everyone with type II diabetes will be helped by oral diabetes medications. Cautions for use and for drug interactions are addressed.  (Diabetes type ii)

Herbal Remedy Beats Drug In New Arthritis Study
A new study reported at this year's annual Arthritis World Congress showed that a natural remedy - a special mix of the anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving herbs curcumin and boswellia - was much more powerfully effective at relieving arthritis pain than the medication Celebrex. (Pain Relief, Inflammation, Arthritis, NSAIDs)

Damage Control: 3 Best Natural Supplements For Heart Health
You know, of course, that the most effective way to keep your heart in top shape is a balanced diet and regular exercise. But if you're like most people, you've got a heap of good intentions, a head of broccoli wilting in the crisper, and a set of weights languishing under the bed. The good news: Supplements like fish oil, herbs, and vitamins can help fill in the nutritional and exercise gaps and fortify your heart's health. (Cardiovascular Health, Diabetic Complications, Heart Disease)

Calcium and Vitamin D For Diabetes
While diet, exercise, weight loss, and medications are prescribed for people with diabetes, more Americans are turning to nutritional support for additional help. Studies confirm that vitamin D and calcium supplementation are associated with a reduced risk of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. (Diabetes Nutrition, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes)

Baby Boomers and Diabetes
Eat right and exercise. It's advice we've heard a lot for Baby Boomers but experts say it really is that simple when it comes to diabetes. (Baby Boomers, Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes Management)

Vision Loss - Diabetic Complications
Glaucoma is the second-most important cause of blindness in the United States (after diabetic retinopathy).  If glaucoma is detected early and treated properly, blindness can be prevented. (Diabetes News)

Thief of Sight: Glaucoma
If you are at risk for developing glaucoma, take that risk seriously. Glaucoma is the second-most important cause of blindness in the United States (after diabetic retinopathy), and the single most important cause of blindness among African Americans. If glaucoma is detected early and treated properly, blindness can be prevented. There is no longer any reason for people to go blind from glaucoma! (Diabetes Education and Glaucoma)

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)

Blood Sugar Levels - Guidelines for Diabetes
Whether you have type 1 or type II diabetes or gestational diabetes, the goals of achieving control of blood glucose levels are similar: to keep blood glucose as close as possible to that of a person without diabetes.

Bladder Neuropathy - Neurogenic Bladder
Three different types of nerves control how your bladder functions. Damage to any of these nerves can cause problems with the way the bladder functions. This type of problem is often called bladder neuropathy, bladder dysfunction, or neurogenic bladder. (Autonomic Neuropathy,  Diabetic Complications)

Diabetes Risk May Be Associated With Elevated Iron Levels
High levels of iron in the blood may foreshadow the development of type 2 diabetes, a new study suggests. Research has shown that people with a genetic condition that causes huge elevations of iron in the blood are known to be at risk for type 2 diabetes. This study aimed to determine whether the diabetes link would hold true for healthy people with just mildly elevated levels of iron. (Diabetes Research)

LADA or Diabetes 1.5
Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA), also called slow-onset diabetes or diabetes 1.5, has similarities both to type 1 and type 2. Often it is not recognized as LADA or type 1.5, because at first it looks like and reacts positively to treatments for type 2. However, it ends up revealing itself as an autoimmune form of diabetes, more like type 1. (Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes Education)

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.
