All About Peripheral Arterial Disease
Peripheral arterial disease, also called PAD, occurs when blood vessels in the legs are narrowed or blocked by fatty deposits. Blood flow to your feet and legs decreases. If you have PAD, you have an increased risk for heart attack and stroke. An estimated one out of every three people with diabetes over the age of 50 have this condition. However, many of those with warning signs don't realize that they have PAD and therefore don't get treatment. (Diabetes Complications, Heart Attack, Stroke)

Erectile Dysfunction and Diabetes: Keys to Prevention and Treatment
Erectile dysfunction is a common complication of diabetes. You can reduce your risk of developing erectile dysfunction, prevent it from worsening and, in many cases, safely and effectively treat it. (Erectile Dysfunction, Diabetic Complications, Neuropathy, Cardiovascular Disease)

Prevent & Protect - Control Blood Sugar To Prevent Complications
Three out of five people with diabetes have one or more complications from the disease. In the United States, more than 200,000 people a year die from all types of diabetic complications. (Diabetic Complications, Heart Disease, Stroke, Neuropathy)

Low Vitamin D Levels Pose Large Threat To Health; Overall 26 Percent Increased Risk Of Death
Researchers at Johns Hopkins are reporting what is believed to be the most conclusive evidence to date that inadequate levels of vitamin D, obtained from milk, fortified cereals and exposure to sunlight, lead to substantially increased risk of death. (Vitamin D Deficiency, Heart Disease)

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)  

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.

L-Carnosine: An Anti-Aging Nutrient
Over the years, carnosine has come to be known as an anti-aging nutrient. In fact, it is often referred to as one of the nutrients for longevity. (Diabetes, Cataracts, Neuropathy, Atherosclerosis)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid
Researchers say that alpha-lipoic acid is important for diabetics. It is possible that it not only prevents nerve damage from oxidation, but also promotes glucose metabolism. In a study published in Diabetes Care, patients with adult-onset diabetes who were given lipoic acid experienced slight nerve regeneration, while patients taking a placebo showed continued deterioration. (diabetic neuropathy, neuropathy treatment)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid Battles Diabetes
An analysis of recent studies confirms that alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) supplements reduce a variety of neuropathic symptoms common to diabetes, including pain, burning sensation and numbness, and may be even more effective when combined with other antioxidants. (preventing neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, diabetic neuropathy)

Men and Diabetes
Complications of diabetes in men can include sexual dysfunction, heart disease, diabetic retinopathy, intermittent claudication and neuropathy. Diabetes research has brought to light the importance of prevention;  including improved blood glucose control, blood pressure control and improved control of cholesterol and lipids.

Get A "Grrip!": Diabetes and Your Hands
When you hear about the complications of diabetes, you usually hear about your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and feet. But diabetes can affect the muscles and joints of your hands, too. Diabetes-related hand conditions are usually not life-threatening, but they can have a great impact on the quality of your life. (Diabetic Complications, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Stiff-Hand Syndrome, Dupuytren's Contracture)

Are You At Risk For Vitamin B-12 Deficiency?
Vitamin B-12 deficiency can lead to anemia, nerve damage, tiredness, weakness, depression, weight loss, and numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. (Neuropathy, Type 2 Diabetes, Vitamin B-12)

Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is one of eight water-soluble B vitamins. All B vitamins help the body to convert carbohydrates into glucose (sugar) which is "burned" to produce energy. (Heart Disease, Neuropathy, Stress)

High Blood Sugar - A Sticky Situation
Think about what happens when you spill honey; it gets on your fingers, sticks to everything you touch, and generally gums up your entire kitchen counter. Now imagine a honey spill taking place inside your bloodstream - which is essentially what high blood sugar is. (Diabetic Complications, Neuropathy, Cardiovascular Disease)

Alpha Lipoic Acid
A little known but extremely powerful antioxidant nutrient is available in supplemental form called alpha lipoic acid. Alpha lipoic acid appears to be a wonder nutrient and it seems to work particularly well in diabetic patients. (Alpha Lipoic Acid, Diabetes Research, Diabetic Complications, Neuropathy)
