Women and Diabetes
For women who do not currently have diabetes, pregnancy brings the risk of gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes develops in 2% to 5% of all pregnancies but disappears when a pregnancy is over. Women who have had gestational diabetes are at an increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes later in life.

Plants As Means Of Blood Sugar Control
Before the advent of insulin, diabetes and hypoglycemia were treated with plant medicines. In the last 20 years scientific investigation has, in fact, confirmed the efficacy of many of these preparations, some of which are remarkably effective. (Diabetic Product, Herb for Diabetes, Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Fenugreek, Bilberry, Pterocarpus)

Low Blood Sugar - Hypoglycemia
When people first encounter the diet prescribed for hypoglycemia, they are often baffled by the ban on sugar. They have been given a diagnosis of low blood sugar and yet they must avoid sugar. Hypoglycemia is the opposite of diabetes, and diabetics cannot have sugar, therefore, surely the hypoglycemic sufferer must eat lots of sugar? This is a common misunderstanding.

The Skinny on Sugar Substitutes
If you are like most Americans, you love the sweet taste of sugar.  With an average consumption of over 20 teaspoons per person per day, we are a nation with an enormous sweet tooth. And chances are, even though you are working at slashing the sugar, you haven't lost your sweet tooth. Luckily, there are more choices than ever when it comes to sugar-free foods and sugar substitutes. Learn more about the sugar substitutes sucralose, aspartame, saccharin, acesulfame K and sugar alcohols. (Diabetic Cooking and Sugar Substitutes)

Type 2 Diabetes and Triglycerides
The combination of high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol and central obesity are the hallmarks of the metabolic syndrome diabetic dyslipidemia, which occurs in 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes. The frightening significance of this combination of risk factors is the marked incidence in these people of premature death from heart disease. (Type 2 Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity)

The New Silent Epidemic
The number of American adults diagnosed with this disease annually has spiked 54% in the last decade and now stands at an estimated 21 million.  At this very moment approximately one-third of those affected don’t even know they are at risk and it takes an average of 4 to 7 years before they learn the truth.

The Role of Sleep in Type 2 Diabetes
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35 percent of Americans report getting less than the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep each night. This rampant deprivation has consequences, and not just grogginess: People who don’t get enough sleep are prone to a slew of health problems, including type 2 diabetes. (Sleep Deprivation, Type 2 Diabetes)

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.

High Blood Pressure and Diabetes; A Deadly Duo
High blood pressure (or hypertension) isn't called "the silent killer" for nothing. Oftentimes people will have it and not even know it until it's too late.  For most people with diabetes, keeping blood pressure below 130/80 will help prevent problems.

Diabetes - The Inflammation Syndrome Connection
Many nutritional supplements can lessen the inflammation in diabetes, but it is essential that the underlying diet be corrected. That said, a key objective of supplementation should be to lower glucose levels and improve insulin function, which should in turn reduce inflammation. Helpful supplements include chromium, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and the omega-3 fatty acids. (Diabetes Nutrition, Inflammation, Arthritis, Heart Disease)

Magnesium
One of the most versatile minerals, magnesium is involved in energy production, nerve function, muscle relaxation, and bone and tooth formation.  In conjunction with calcium and potassium, magnesium regulates heart rhythm and clots blood; it also aids in the production and use of insulin.

De-Stress To Decrease Risk Of Diabetes -
Researchers are slowly zeroing in on the long-suspected link between stress and type-2 diabetes, which accounts for 90 percent of all diabetes cases. Anxiety is now believed to exacerbate diabetes by raising levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which regulates insulin and blood-sugar levels. (Stress, Type 2 Diabetes)

How Stress Affects People With Diabetes
With people with diabetes, stress can alter blood glucose levels, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) notes. It does this in two ways. First, people under stress may not take good care of themselves. Second, stress hormones may also alter blood glucose levels directly. (Type 2 Diabetes, Stress)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid: Extra Help Taming Diabetes
Researchers have discovered that the potent antioxidant, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, may be an effective treatment for a common complication of diabetes, known as diabetic neuropathy, which develops when high blood sugar levels damage delicate nerve endings. It may also help control blood sugar in diabetics, possibly by lowering insulin levels and increasing the transport of sugar into cells. (Diabetic Nutrition, Diabetic Product, Diabetic Neuropathy)

24 Million Americans Have Diabetes
The number of Americans with diabetes has grown to about 24 million people, or roughly 8 percent of the U.S. population, the government announced recently. The number represents an increase of about 3 million over two years. (Diabetes Research, Diabetes Statistics)
