Choosing an Oral Diabetes Medication
Generally, you will not use an oral agent if you have type I diabetes. They are usually only prescribed for people with type II diabetes.  Not everyone with type II diabetes will be helped by oral diabetes medications. Cautions for use and for drug interactions are addressed.  (Diabetes type ii)

Exercise and Diabetes
Exercise is very important in managing diabetes. Exercise improves your body's use of insulin. Blood glucose levels are affected by exercise, so be aware of general exercise guidelines and precautions for diabetics as you begin your fitness program. (Diabetes Information)

Eye Complications
People with diabetes do have a higher risk of blindness than people without diabetes. But most people who have diabetes have nothing more than minor eye disorders. You can keep minor problems minor. And if you do develop a major problem, there are treatments that often work well if you begin them right away. (Diabetic Complications, Glaucoma, Cataracts)

Hypoglycemia In Youth With Diabetes
Hypoglycemia (also known as an "insulin reaction," or just "low blood sugar") occurs when blood glucose goes too low. Hypoglycemia can be caused by many things: too much insulin, not enough food, too much exercise, eating late, or eating too little carbohydrate. It's important to recognize the symptoms that are unique to you so that you can treat it before it becomes serious. (Symptom Juvenile Diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes)

The Diabetic Diet
Your diabetic diet should be a well-balanced meal plan tailored to your individual needs, tastes, activity level and life style. Good diabetic meal planning  will include carbohydrates, proteins and fats in amounts that will promote good diabetes control.  Your dietitian may use diabetic food exchange lists to help you plan meals and snacks. (Diabetes Food and Diabetes Cooking) 

Eating Healthy on $7 A Day or Less
NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. Diabetes is an expensive disease. When a family member has either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, the family's income has to cover medications or insulin and syringes, monitoring equipment and strips, medical visits, diabetes books and magazines, and, of course, healthful foods. No wonder it's tempting to shortchange the last item. But healthful foods are actually a blue chip investment. Good nutrition will help keep your blood glucose in balance now and will likely help prevent costly complications and expensive medical care later. (Diabetes Meal Planning and Diabetes Menu)

Diet & Exercise: What They Can Do for Diabetes
The achievement of three basic goals can change the life of a Type 2 diabetic. The goals are: to improve fitness, to get dietary fat down to about 25 percent of calories, and to get the activity level up to about 30 minutes a day of moderate activity five to seven days a week. Slight weight loss can result in major benefits.

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.

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)

Frozen Shoulder
A body in motion tends to stay in motion, and a body at rest tends to stay at rest. Such is the case with your shoulder and a condition called adhesive capsulitis. Adhesive capsulitis is more commonly known as frozen shoulder.  Diabetes is a risk factor for frozen shoulder, although precisely why that's so is a subject the medical community is still researching. (Diabetic Complications, Diabetes Care)

Stress
Stress results when something causes your body to behave as if it were under attack. When stress occurs, the body prepares to take action. This preparation is called the fight-or-flight response. In people who have diabetes, the fight-or-flight response does not work well. Insulin is not always able to let the extra energy into the cells, so glucose piles up in the blood.
