Resveratrol: More Than Skin Deep
Red grapes contain high levels of resveratrol. Researchers say resveratrol has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is thought to be responsible for many of red grapes' health benefits. (Stroke, Cardiovascular Disease, Hypertension, Resveratrol)

Nutrition: Eating Out - Healthfully
In a dozen studies that monitored tens of thousands of people for years, "being overweight increased the risk of developing diabetes in men and women more than tenfold." Unfortunately, anyone trying to avoid weight gain and diabetes will find little help from restaurant menus. Restaurants serve large portions of tasty calorie-rich foods. That's a recipe for flab...and for diabetes. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetic Meal Planning)

Diabetic Ketoacidosis
Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) can occur when you don't have enough insulin to meet your body's needs. Normally your body uses carbohydrate (glucose) for maintenance, but when there isn't enough insulin in your body, your cells can't access the glucose in your blood. Your body then resorts to burning fat in an unhealthy way. Your liver becomes involved in fat-burning, and the by-product is ketones. (Diabetic complications, High blood sugar level)

Transient Ischemic Attack
Risk factors for strokes and TIAs are very similar. The risk of a TIA or stroke is higher among men, African Americans, people over age 65, and people with heart disease or diabetes. Smokers, people with high blood pressure, and people who are overweight also have a greater risk for TIAs and strokes. (Diabetes Research and TIAs and Stroke)

Managing Hypoglycemia - Helpful Supplements (Part II)
This article lists many supplements that are suggested as useful for hypoglycemia in the literature. Outlines the importance of the B vitamins in  metabolizing fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Calcium, chromium, magnesium, manganese, selenium, vitamin C, vitamin E and zinc are discussed.  (Low blood sugar)

Sweet Sleep: It's Key To Your Quality Of Life
Research has shown that a lack of sleep causes a "sleep debt," which increases insulin resistance and causes more stress hormones to be released. The result: higher blood sugar levels. Sleep plays a critical role in your personal maintenance program.

Treating Diabetes With Insulin
A discussion of the different types of insulin, where it comes from, insulin pumps and jet spray injectors. Diabetes education on how to mange your prescription and where to store your insulin. (Diabetes information)

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).

Diabetes-Related Skin Problems
Skin problems are common in people with diabetes. High levels of glucose in the blood provide an excellent breeding ground for bacteria and fungi, and can reduce the body's ability to heal itself.  Diabetic dermopathy, digital sclerosis, vitiligo, acanthosis nigricans and bullosis diabeticorum (diabetic blisters) are among the conditions discussed in this article. (Diabetes Information)  

Diabetes Mellitus: Causes and Symptoms
Definition and Description of Diabetes Mellitus. Know the conditions that can be a sign of diabetes. Diabetes information with a Discussion of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. (diabetes type II) Risk factors for developing sugar diabetes.

Magnesium Is Important For Heart Health
Since magnesium is required for muscle contraction, and the heart is a muscle, the mineral is related to heart abnormalities and even to heart attacks. Magnesium depletion predisposes one to hypertension and cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) and may predispose to narrowing of blood vessels and perhaps myocardial infarction (damage to heart muscle, which often precedes a heart attack). Read more about the importance of magnesium in your daily diet. (Heart Disease and Diabetes Nutrition)

Foot And Skin Related Complications Of Diabetes
For people with diabetes, having too much glucose (sugar) in their blood for a long time can cause some serious complications, including foot and skin problems, as well as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, eye damage, and other problems. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Diabetic Retinopathy,  Diabetes Complications)

Blood Sugar Testing
What is a good blood sugar range for a person with diabetes? How do you check your blood sugar? When should you check your blood sugar? What is your A1c test? Learn the answers to these and other important questions regarding blood sugar testing. (Normal blood sugar level and Diabetes Management)

Healthy Skin Made Easy
Diabetes can add to skin problems. High glucose levels are one reason; many bacteria thrive on sugar, making infections easier to get and harder to cure. Diabetic nerve disease and blood vessel disease are two other reasons; both can interfere with blood flow to the skin. In addition, nerve damage may dampen your ability to sense irritations and wounds, making it easier to injure yourself and not even notice. (Diabetes Education and Diabetes Management)

Those With PCOS Can Benefit from Lo Carb Diet
Women with Polycystic ovary syndrome have an increased risk of developing insulin resistance, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, lipid abnormalities and endometrial carcinoma (cancer). Many non-medical approaches can relieve or reduce specific symptoms. Many women with PCOS follow a low-carbohydrate diet designed to lose or maintain their weight.

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.
