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)

Low Blood Sugar Symptoms
Low blood sugar occurs much more frequently in people with Type I diabetes, whose bodies don't produce any insulin, than in people with Type 2 Diabetes. Exceptions to this may include people with Type 2 diabetes who are taking hypoglycemic agents, and particularly those who are taking insulin.

Beat Diabetes!
Gymnema Sylvestre certainly could serve as the backbone of a natural diabetes program. In one recent study , Gymnema showed the potential for pancreas repair, raising output of insulin to normal levels.  This herb for diabetes is getting serious attention in an integrated approach to diabetes management. (Diabetic Product News)

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)

Diabetes Health Tricks
No magic bullet can stop our epidemic of type 2 diabetes, but certain supplements may help cut risk and alleviate symptoms. (Alpha-lipoic Acid, Neuropathy, High Triglycerides, Insulin)

Hypoglycemia In Youth With Diabetes
Hypoglycemia (also known as an "insulin reaction," or just "low blood sugar") occurs when blood glucose goes too low. Hypoglycemia can be caused by many things: too much insulin, not enough food, too much exercise, eating late, or eating too little carbohydrate. It's important to recognize the symptoms that are unique to you so that you can treat it before it becomes serious. (Symptom Juvenile Diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes)

Exercise and Diabetes
Exercise is very important in managing diabetes. Exercise improves your body's use of insulin. Blood glucose levels are affected by exercise, so be aware of general exercise guidelines and precautions for diabetics as you begin your fitness program. (Diabetes Information)

Managing Hypoglycemia - Basic Guidelines (Part I)
Hypoglycemia can be the precursor to Type II diabetes and other insulin resistance related ailments. The good news is that treatment is easy  to understand, and you can manage it yourself.  Best of all, the treatment is without risk, whether or not you actually have hypoglycemia because the treatment is simply a change in diet. (Low blood sugar)

Why You Need the Bs
B-complex vitamins are essential for your body to convert sugar and starches to energy, a chemical process called carbohydrate metabolism.  A shortage of any one of them can cause problems.  Vitamin B6 deficiency has been linked to glucose intolerance, which is an abnormally high rise in blood sugar after eating. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Management)

Why Trans Fat Is So Bad For You
An American Heart Association study released in 2002 showed that food cooked with trans fat clogs arteries quicker than food cooked in animal-based saturated fat. But trans fat has what researchers are beginning to agree is a more insidious function in the body: It actually reprograms how cells work, causing lifelong damage that can lead to diabetes, stroke, and possibly cancer.  (Diabetic Nutrition, Heart Disease, Syndrome X)

Type 2 Diabetics' Acidity Heightens Risk For Kidney Stones
Individuals with type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus) are at increased risk for developing kidney stones in general, and have a particular risk for uric-acid stones. (Diabetic Complications and Type 2 Diabetes)

Beware of High Blood Pressure
Uncontrolled diabetes contributes to the accelerated buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis), and it plays a prominent role in the development of high blood pressure. High blood pressure (hypertension) is reported more often in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics than in the general population. (Diabetes Education and Diabetic Nutrition)

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) 

Alpha-Lipoic Acid- Nature's Perfect Antioxidant
Alpha-lipoic acid is an approved drug in Germany for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. Although alpha-lipoic acid's primary effect in improving neuropathy is thought to be the result of its antioxidant effects, it has also been shown to lead to an improvement in blood sugar metabolism, improve blood flow to peripheral nerves, and actually stimulate the regeneration of nerve fibers. (diabetes treatment, diabetic nutrition, preventing neuropathy)

Study Links High Blood Sugar And Cancer Risk
A large European study has found that people with high blood sugar levels are at an increased risk of developing cancer, even when they do not have overt signs of diabetes. This study adds to evidence that abnormal sugar metabolism (which usually includes insulin resistance, high sugar levels and high insulin levels) can be cancer-promoting.
