Diabetes: Fact or Myth?
Sugar has long had a bad reputation, especially among people with diabetes. People used to think that eating sugar would cause blood glucose levels to rise much more rapidly than eating other types of carbohydrates, such as bread or potatoes. It turns out that sugar's bad rap is not entirely deserved. Researchers are now finding that simple carbohydrates, such as sugar, and complex carbohydrates, such as bread and potatoes, are digested at the same rate. (Diabetes Diet and Recipes)

Blood Sugar Levels - Guidelines for Diabetes
Whether you have type 1 or type II diabetes or gestational diabetes, the goals of achieving control of blood glucose levels are similar: to keep blood glucose as close as possible to that of a person without diabetes.

Curb Sugar Cravings
Hunger suddenly strikes. You need food, and you need it now. You rummage for that long-lost candy bar buried somewhere in your desk - anything to get a sugar fix. That rapid rise in blood glucose, along with the attendant release of the "feel-good" hormone serotonin, may make you feel better temporarily, but when your glucose levels soon nose-dive, you'll return to your low-serotonin state - a prime candidate for yet more sugar cravings.

Vitamin D: Myths, Facts and Statistics
Vitamin D prevents osteoporosis, depression, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and even effects diabetes and obesity. Vitamin D is perhaps the single most underrated nutrient in the world of nutrition. Truth is, most people don't know the real story on vitamin D and health. (Osteoporosis, Depression, Prostate Cancer, Breast Cancer, Calcium)

Glucose Intolerance Reversed by Carnitine Supplement
Supplementing with the nutrient carnitine helps obese animals to clear the extra sugar in their blood, something they had trouble doing on their own, researchers at Duke University Medical Center, North Carolina, report. A team led by Deborah Muoio, Ph.D., of the Duke Sarah W. Stedman Nutrition and Metabolism Center, also performed tests on human muscle cells that showed supplementing with carnitine might help older people with prediabetes, diabetes, and other disorders that make glucose (sugar) metabolism difficult. (Glucose Intolerance, Carnitine, Prediabetes)

Low Vitamin D Linked to Poor Diabetes Control
Vitamin D deficiency, long suspected to be a risk factor for glucose intolerance, is commonly found in people with poor diabetes control, according to a new study. (Type 2 Diabetes, A1c, Insulin Resistance)

Role of Vitamin D Deficiency in Statin Induced Myalgia
Statin drugs are the most commonly used medications for reducing cholesterol levels. They help prevent cardiovascular disease through their cholesterol reducing effects. Statins are not free from side effects. They are well known to have the ability to induce muscle pain (myalgia). (Low Vitamin D, Cholesterol, Statins)

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.

Walk It Off - Get Moving To Lose Weight
It's January, and many of us have resolved to drop those extra pounds we put on during the holidays. Losing weight can actually be enjoyable if you find a healthy diet you can live with and exercise you enjoy. An easy and effective activity to fit into any busy schedule, a walk a day can do wonders for your health - and your waistline. (Exercise and Diabetes Management)

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)

Away From Home: Eat Smart While Shopping
Don't let those hunger pangs get the best of you when you are shopping. Prepare yourself with these ten great suggestions. (Diabetic Meal Planning, Diabetic Diet)

Diabetes & Alcohol Consumption Information
Did you know that drinking less that two alcohol drinks per week can bring on nerve damage?  In addition, alcohol spurs the liver to make more triglycerides and that even light drinking (two four-ounce glasses of wine per week) can raise triglyceride levels. (Information from the American Diabetes Association)

Walk For Your Heart
Exercise doesn't have to be strenuous to be effective. The "no pain, no gain" attitude can sometimes discourage people from exercising at all. While it's true that aerobic exercise (dancing, swimming, jogging, and bicycling) gives the heart and lungs a continuous workout, brisk walking is also beneficial-and much easier to work into anyone's schedule. (Diabetes Education and Exercise)

Hitting A Nerve
Neuropathy is one of the best arguments to fight blood glucose control. It's a nerve disorder that can affect almost every system in your body. It results from bursts of high blood glucose that cause oxidative stress to the nerves. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Autonomic Neuropathy)

Diabetics Can Count On Chromium
Chromium, an essential dietary mineral, plays a central role in how the body uses insulin to burn sugars, carbs, fats, and proteins for energy. Because of this insulin-enhancing role, chromium can be especially helpful in controlling, and sometimes reversing, some of the symptoms of prediabetes and type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes. (Chromium, Type 2 Diabetes, Syndrome X)
