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.

CoQ10: A Wonder Enzyme
What if there were a natural substance with the potential to combat devastating diseases and the effects of aging on the skin? That's what some say could be the promise of the supplement coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). (Diabetic Complications, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol)

Vision Quest - Preserve Your Precious Sight
In spite of the rapid technological advances in eye surgery, your best means of defense against vision loss are still regular eye exams, protective eye wear and, most important, proper nutrition. (Diabetic Complications, Cataracts, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration)

Bilberry
In several studies, patients with various eye disorders ranging from myopia to macular degeneration, showed improvement in their vision a short time after taking bilberry. (Macular Degeneration, Myopia, Cataracts)

Prevent Diabetic Vision Loss
Certain nutrients help the lens of the eye to keep its defense system strong. Vitamins C and E, beta carotene (a precursor of vitamin A) and minerals such as selenium, zinc and copper --all components of antioxidant enzymes found in the lens may all play roles in protection. (Diabetic Nutrition)

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)

Why You Need The Omega-3s
The omega-3s protect the heart in several key ways. They reduce inflammation, they are mild blood thinners, slow the heart rate, improve blood-vessel flexibility and improve heart rhythm. (Fish Oil, Heart Disease, Retinopathy)

Iodine Deficiency and the Thyroid
While iodine deficiency was not common in the U.S., it is again on the rise here as well. The first National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES I), which took place between 1971 - 1974, found that just 2.6% of US citizens had iodine deficiency. The follow-up NHANES III survey, conducted between 1988 - 1994, found that 11.7% are iodine deficient. The October, 1998 issue of the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism reported that over the previous 20 years, the percentage of Americans with low intake of iodine has more than quadrupled. (Iodine Deficiency, Hypothyroidism, Brain Damage)

Nutrients for Thyroid Support
Learn how to improve the condition of your thyroid using diet and nutritional options such as minerals, amino acids and herbs. (Iodine, Selenium, Zinc)

Fish May Help Diabetic Kidneys
For adults with diabetes, consuming fish twice a week may help prevent kidney disease -- one of the most serious complications of diabetes, according to British researchers. (Kidney Disease, Fish Oil, Diabetic Complications)

Diabetic Recipes - Main Dish Fish
Fish makes a great main dish when you're carb counting, not only because it's high in protein and low in carbs, but also because it contains omega-3 fatty acids. Try these delicious recipes such as Grilled Salmon with Herb Crust, Grilled Tuna with Peanut Sauce and Grilled Swordfish with Tomato Chutney and make your meal planning even healthier. (Low Carbohydrate Diet and Diabetic Recipes)

Heart Disease & Diabetes
A high level of homocysteine in the blood is now being recognized as a new, independent risk factor for heart troubles.  But the good news is that a high level of homocysteine can be treated with modifications to your daily diet or by supplementation. If you are getting plenty of folate, B6 and B12 from your food, they "detoxify" the homocysteine, driving levels down and keeping you safe from heart troubles. Important information for a diabetic diet.

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)

MicroManagement - Pay Attention to Vitamins and Minerals
An estimated 80 percent of American adults take nutritional supplements, primarily vitamins and minerals, or micronutrients.  The main reason? We need to compensate for nutritional inadequacies in the modern American diet, cited as a contributing factor in a variety of diseases from atherosclerosis and diabetes to high blood pressure and stroke. (Diabetes Diet and Diabetes Nutrition)

Women's Cardiovascular Health: Getting To The Heart Of The Matter
Heart disease is just as much of a women's health problem as it is a man's. In fact, tragically one out of every two women will develop, and die from, heart disease. This makes heart disease more of a threat to a women's health than breast cancer and all other forms of cancer combined. (Diabetic Complications, Heart Attack, Omega-3, B-Vitamins, Coenzyme Q10)
