Mineral Deficiencies And Food Cravings
Clinicians note that deficiencies in certain minerals may trigger carbohydrate/sugar cravings. (Sugar Cravings, Diabetes Nutrition)

Vitamin D: Is It A Miracle?
Vitamin D may also play a role in preventing Type 2 diabetes. One study, in the journal Diabetes Care, looked at data from 4,000 men and women. Vitamin D levels were significantly lower in the 187 people who developed Type 2 diabetes than in those who didn’t get diabetes. And those with the highest blood levels of vitamin D were 40% less likely to get diabetes. (Vitamin D Deficiency, Type 2 Diabetes, Glucose Metabolism)

Waking Up With High Blood Glucose Levels
Morning readings can be so frustrating! Do you go to bed with a blood glucose of 120 mg/dL (6.6 mmol/L) and wake up with a blood glucose of 170 (9.4 mmol/L) or more? Is this happening in spite of following your diet, exercise and taking your medications as your doctor prescribed? Well, don't worry; all this may be happening due to the Dawn Phenomenon or the Somogyi Effect. (Diabetes Management and High Blood Sugar)

Sugar Alcohol
Sugar-free candy as well as as other products using the term "sugar-free" should be evaluated for total carbohydrate content.  Sugar alcohols, though listed by their weight content within the food as listed in the Nutrition Facts panel, are not metabolized (broken down and used for energy) the way true sugars are.  Because sugar alcohols are incompletely absorbed, the FDA allows the labeling and assignment of less energy per gram to these nutritive sweeteners. (Diabetes Diet and Nutrition)

Why You Need the Bs
B-complex vitamins are essential for your body to convert sugar and starches to energy, a chemical process called carbohydrate metabolism.  A shortage of any one of them can cause problems.  Vitamin B6 deficiency has been linked to glucose intolerance, which is an abnormally high rise in blood sugar after eating. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Management)

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)

Vitamin E And A Healthy Heart
It is now known that low vitamin E levels are linked with elevated blood pressure and high cholesterol. (High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Vitamin E)

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
Research has found that people with heart diseases tend to be deficient in CoQ10. Low levels of CoQ10 have been found in people not only with conditions involving a weak or damaged heart, such as with cardiomyopathy or congestive heart failure, but also in people with high blood pressure. (High Blood Pressure, Congestive Heart Failure, High Cholesterol, Coenzyme Q-10)

Take Care of Yourself ... Take Care of Your Diabetes
There's a lot you can do to stay healthy. Research shows that if you keep your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol close to target, you may prevent or delay serious health problems. (Diabetes Education)

Eat Healthy - Diabetes
You can help control your blood sugar (also called blood glucose) and diabetes when you eat healthy, get enough physical activity and stay at a healthy weight. Using the Food Guide Pyramid helps you eat a variety of healthy foods. Variety means eating foods from each of the food groups every day. Read more about the six food groups. (Diabetic Menu, Diabetic Food List, Diabetes Diet)

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 Natural Solution For Lowering Your Blood Sugar
Some of the most promising alternative treatments for high blood sugar come from nature's pharmacy, which isn't surprising.  Read more about these all natural alternatives, including Gymnema sylvestre, Fenugreek, Bitter melon, Chromium and Vanadium. (Diabetic Product, Herb for Diabetes and Diabetes Nutrition)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid- Nature's Perfect Antioxidant
Alpha-lipoic acid is an approved drug in Germany for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. Although alpha-lipoic acid's primary effect in improving neuropathy is thought to be the result of its antioxidant effects, it has also been shown to lead to an improvement in blood sugar metabolism, improve blood flow to peripheral nerves, and actually stimulate the regeneration of nerve fibers. (diabetes treatment, diabetic nutrition, preventing neuropathy)

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. (Stress, Diabetic Complications, High Blood Sugar)

Complications: An Introduction
Diabetes is a complicated disease--complicated to understand, complicated to treat. There are steps you can take to reduce your chances of developing complications, such as keeping your blood glucose and cholesterol levels in a healthy range.(retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, diabetes management)
