A Tune-Up for Your Thyroid
The thyroid, a small, butterfly-shaped gland below your Adam's apple, pretty much rules your body, says Douglas Husbands, DC, CCN, a clinical nutritionist and chiropractor in San Carlos, California. It regulates your metabolism, explains Husbands, and an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) slows everything down - from your pulse and temperature to your energy level and the rate at which you burn calories. An overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), on the other hand, revs the body into overdrive. (Thyroid disorder, T4, TSH, Selenium, Iodine, L-tyrosine)

Curcumin, Boswellia, Holy Basil
Fortunately there are effective alternative treatments for arthritis pain that have minimal side effects. For example, consider herbs from India's ancient Ayurvedic tradition such as curcumin, boswellia and holy basil. All of these have powerful anti-inflammatory properties as well as other health supporting benefits, which make them particularly appealing to arthritis sufferers. (Autoimmune Disease, NSAIDs, Anti-inflammatory, Crohn's Disease)

Non-Drug Relief of Pain
Celebrex and Vioxx both work by inactivating an inflammatory enzyme called Cox-2. Recent studies are showing that this is not an entirely new capability. Quite to the contrary, some of the oldest natural remedies on record work by inhibiting the same enzyme. (Cox-2, Anti-Inflammatory, Muscle Pain, Arthritis)

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)

Drug Induced Coenzyme Q10 Deficiency
The benefits of pharmaceutical therapy are widespread and in many cases life-saving. All of us, however, are familiar with the fact that drug therapy often results in side-effects. How often do we watch a television commercial for a new pharmaceutical agent and find that the last ten seconds consists of a rapid fire, voice over announcement listing a whole host of side-effects?  Or read a magazine advertisement with one page of ad copy and 2 pages of fine print warnings? We've discovered that in many cases these side-effects are "drug-induced nutrient deficiencies"! (CoQ10, Statin, Beta-Blocker, Diuretic, Depression)

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.

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)

Fish-Oil Supplements Plus Regular Aerobic Exercise Benefit Overweight Patients
In overweight patients, fish oil supplements and regular aerobic exercise reduced body fat and improved cardiovascular and metabolic health, according to the results of a new study. (High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, High Triglycerides)

A Growing Epidemic: Taking Aim at Managing Blood Sugar
The loss of insulin sensitivity can be decreased with the right nutrients. Numerous vitamins, minerals, herb and antioxidants have been studied for their efficacy at promoting healthy blood sugar and protecting cells from the damage of elevated blood sugars with favorable results. (Chromium, Fenugreek, Gymnema sylvestre, Vanadyl)

Weighty Research On Diet Supplements
Researchers in this study that covered a 10-year period found that obese or overweight consumers who took four supplements experienced less weight gain than those who did not use the supplements. Chromium seemed to most help weight control. It helps regulate blood-sugar levels, which keeps appetite in check. (Chromium, Diabetes Nutrition, Weight Loss)

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)

The Low-Carb Way to Weight Loss
Carbohydrates are one of three basic macronutrients needed to sustain life (the other two are protein and fat). But eating too many carbohydrates, especially refined carbs - can cause weight gain and can adversely affect your health.  Glycemic index guidelines to help you plan a healthy diabetes diet. (Diabetes type ii and Diabetes type i)

How Sweet It Is!
Diabetic Product News - The availability of artificial sweeteners has been enormous benefit to diabetics. However, there's always been a concern that overconsumption of these synthetic sweeteners may cause some unknown harm to the body. Stevia could be a good alternative in diabetics. (Diabetic Nutrition, Sugar Substitute)

Tips to Reduce Triglycerides
You have your cholesterol levels under control, but now your doctor says your triglycerides are still high. Triglycerides, like cholesterol, are blood fats. Research suggests that high levels increase risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Learn what normal levels are and how to reach your goal. (Heart Health, Diabetic Nutrition)

Coping With Nerve Pain - B Vitamin Relief
When you lack B vitamins, you may suffer pain in your hands or feet, signs of what's called peripheral neuropathy. The good news: B supplements can help your nerves calm down and stop screaming with pain. About 15 million Americans suffer from neuropathy, a nerve problem that can damage the nervous system and cause unrelenting aches and pains. In particular, people suffering from diabetes may suffer peripheral neuropathy when the sugar in their blood reaches and remains at dangerous levels. (Neuropathy and Diabetes Management)

alpha cell  (AL-fa)
a type of cell in the pancreas. Alpha cells make and release a hormone called glucagon. The body sends a signal to the alpha cells to make glucagon when blood glucose falls too low. Then glucagon reaches the liver where it tells it to release glucose into the blood for energy.

acarbose  (AK-er-bose)
an oral medicine used to treat Type 2 diabetes. It blocks the enzymes that digest starches in food. The result is a slower and lower rise in blood glucose throughout the day, especially right after meals. Belongs to the class of medicines called alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. (Brand name: Precose)

glucagon (GLOO-kah-gahn)
a hormone produced by the alpha cells in the pancreas. It raises blood glucose. An injectable form of glucagon, available by prescription, may be used to treat severe hypoglycemia.

islets
groups of cells located in the pancreas that make hormones that help the body break down and use food. For example, alpha cells make glucagon and beta cells make insulin. Also called islets of Langerhans (LANG-er-hahns).

miglitol (MIG-lih-tall)
an oral medicine used to treat Type 2 diabetes. It blocks the enzymes that digest starches in food. The result is a slower and lower rise in blood glucose throughout the day, especially right after meals. Belongs to the class of medicines called alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. (Brand name: Glyset)
