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.

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)

Causes of Type II Diabetes
Unlike people with type I diabetes who become unable to produce insulin, people with type II diabetes produce insulin. But, either the body does not respond to insulin's action-it's resistant-or there is just not enough insulin to go around-there's too much body for the amount of insulin that's made. Either problem leads to the same outcome: high levels of glucose in the blood. (Type 2  Diabetes and Diabetes Education)

An Avoidable Aging Bombshell
It's impossible to hold on to your youth if excesses of insulin are raging through your bloodstream.  Insulin resistance doesn't happen just because you're aging and you don't have to get it.  Approximately 25 percent of all seemingly normal, healthy nondiabetic older Americans have so-called insulin resistance. If you do have it, you can correct it before it does irreversible damage. (Diabetes education-- hyperinsulinemia)

Insulin Resistance: When Things Go Awry
An easy-to-understand discussion of the cause of diabetes. Lifestyle choices can be a virtual prescription for Syndrome X, diabetes, and heart disease.

Fenugreek - Enhances Carb Metabolism for Diabetics
An extract from Fenugreek enhances carb metabolism showing promise for dieters and those with diabetes and insulin resistance. (Diabetes Food and Fenugreek)

Type I Diabetes And Insulin Resistance
Researchers have discovered  that people with type 1 diabetes often have insulin resistance-- a hallmark of type 2 diabetes and something that dramatically raises the odds for heart disease.  (Diabetes News- Hyperinsulinemia)

Insulin and Obesity - Living the Low Carb Life
Insulin is the fat-storage hormone. It is also the hunger hormone.  When you eat a lower-carb diet, you stimulate less insulin but you also stimulate more glucagon, its sister hormone, which responds more to protein. (Diabetic diet and Diabetes management)

Zinc, the second most abundant trace mineral in the body, plays critical roles in glucose regulation, the proper function of insulin, and weight control. (Syndrome X, Insulin Resistance, Diabetes Nutrition)

Red Wine Ingredient - Resveratrol - Fights Diabetes In Mice
Even relatively low doses of resveratrol--a chemical found in the skins of red grapes and in red wine--can improve the sensitivity of mice to the hormone insulin, according to a  new report.  As insulin resistance is often characterized as the most critical factor contributing to the development of type 2 diabetes, the findings "provide a potential new therapeutic approach for preventing or treating" both conditions, the researchers said. (Diabetes Research, Type 2 Diabetes, Insulin Resistance)

Understanding Insulin Resistance
In people with type 1 diabetes, the beta cells in the pancreas are destroyed by the body's own immune system and can no longer produce any insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the problem is somewhat more complex. The pancreas produces insulin-sometimes more than normal. But the insulin doesn't work properly. The result is the same: the sugar remains in the blood in high concentrations, setting you up for a number of health problems. ( Diabetic Symptoms, blood sugar levels, Syndrome X)

A Growing Epidemic: Taking Aim at Managing Blood Sugar
The loss of insulin sensitivity can be decreased with the right nutrients. Numerous vitamins, minerals, herb and antioxidants have been studied for their efficacy at promoting healthy blood sugar and protecting cells from the damage of elevated blood sugars with favorable results. (Chromium, Fenugreek, Gymnema sylvestre, Vanadyl)

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)

Excessive blood sugar promotes diabetes and all the destruction that goes with it. Studies show that if you have high blood sugar, chromium supplements will bring it down. Chromium increases the power of insulin to process sugar, so you need less insulin to do the job, and blood levels drop. (Chromium, High Blood Sugar, Diabetic Nutrition)

"Little-Known" Natural Remedies for Diabetes
There is extensive research regarding herbs that positively affect blood sugar.  Learn about 5 important herbs for diabetic health.  (Diabetes management, diabetic product)
