Sorbitol: A Hazard For Diabetics
Conversion of glucose to sorbitol is greatly accelerated in diabetics, and that can cause dangerous complications over time. Since sorbitol can't exit from your cells very fast, and is not used in the body, it accumulates and attracts water. This causes the cells to swell, which can result in nerve, eye, kidney and blood vessel damage, as well as development of cataracts. (Sorbitol, Diabetic Complications, Type 2 Diabetes, Artificial Sweetener)

Diabetes Diet
The more we've learned about diabetes, the more we've come to understand that those who suffer from it don't need to be on a specific diet, but rather they should follow certain guidelines for eating. By doing so, they'll better control their diabetes and general health. (Diabetes Diet and Diabetic Meal Planning)

Obesity And High Blood Sugar Linked To Prostate Enlargement
The risk of developing benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), a common condition in older men, increases with obesity and high blood sugar levels. (Obesity, High Blood Sugar, Prostate Disease, Diabetic Complications)

Bitter Melon Has Potent Anti-Diabetes Effects
Substances isolated from bitter melon, a plant eaten and used medicinally in much of Asia, could provide the basis of new drugs for treating diabetes and obesity, an international team of researchers reports. (Bitter Melon, Diabetes, Obesity)

Managing Allergies and Sinus Problems Effectively
The number of persons suffering from some form of allergy has continued to steadily rise for the last few decades. Conservatively, it is estimated that 70 million people suffer from allergies in the United States and another 40 million in Europe. The good news is that we can mitigate many of the symptoms caused via the allergic response, allowing the sufferer to oftentimes live a completely normal life, symptom free.

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)

Good Fats for Low-Carb Living
Your body needs EFAs (essential fatty acids) just as it needs vitamins and minerals. Essential fats are necessary for life, but they must be obtained through diet or supplementation because the body cannot make them. Learn more about why these essential fats are so important for optimal health. (Diabetes Nutrition, Fish Oil, Omega-3)

Why Trans Fat Is So Bad For You
An American Heart Association study released in 2002 showed that food cooked with trans fat clogs arteries quicker than food cooked in animal-based saturated fat. But trans fat has what researchers are beginning to agree is a more insidious function in the body: It actually reprograms how cells work, causing lifelong damage that can lead to diabetes, stroke, and possibly cancer.  (Diabetic Nutrition, Heart Disease, Syndrome X)

Diabetes Tied to Enlarged Prostate
Researchers report that, BPH, or benign prostate hyperplasia, is a common condition in older men, but the risk of developing the condition seems to be increased by obesity and high blood sugar levels. (BPH, Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, Diabetic Complications)

De-Stress To Decrease Risk Of Diabetes -
Researchers are slowly zeroing in on the long-suspected link between stress and type-2 diabetes, which accounts for 90 percent of all diabetes cases. Anxiety is now believed to exacerbate diabetes by raising levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which regulates insulin and blood-sugar levels. (Stress, Type 2 Diabetes)

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)

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)

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.

Many Diabetics Not Controlling Blood Sugar
This year, specialists for the first time are urging every diabetic over age 50 to get tested for the leg disease, called peripheral arterial disease or PAD. Studies suggest one in three diabetics over age 50 may have PAD. Anybody can get PAD. At least 12 million Americans are thought to have it, most of them undiagnosed.

Gastroparesis & Diabetes
Gastroparesis, also called delayed gastric emptying, is a disorder in which the stomach takes too long to empty its contents. It often occurs in people with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Gastroparesis can also complicate efforts to control blood sugar levels with medication because it disrupts the timing of the digestive process.
