Thief of Sight: Glaucoma
If you are at risk for developing glaucoma, take that risk seriously. Glaucoma is the second-most important cause of blindness in the United States (after diabetic retinopathy), and the single most important cause of blindness among African Americans. If glaucoma is detected early and treated properly, blindness can be prevented. There is no longer any reason for people to go blind from glaucoma! (Diabetes Education and Glaucoma)

Developing An Age Reduction Plan
Type I diabetics as well as Type II diabetics who take charge of their condition, vigilantly keeping their blood sugar levels within normal ranges, can significantly reduce the manifestations of premature aging. By managing diet, insulin, and exercise-- diabetics can avoid much of the aging that high blood sugar causes. No matter what ails you, the aging damage that a chronic condition causes is always improved by proper management.

Diabetic Complications
Persistently high blood sugar levels can lead to long-term complications such as accelerated development of cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, cardiovascular disease, diabetic neuropathy, nephropathy and foot problems. Diabetes education on how to recognize signs and symptoms. Details diabetes symptoms of eye problems, nephropathy, cardiovascular disease, neuropathy and foot ailments.

Causes of Type II Diabetes
Unlike people with type I diabetes who become unable to produce insulin, people with type II diabetes produce insulin. But, either the body does not respond to insulin's action-it's resistant-or there is just not enough insulin to go around-there's too much body for the amount of insulin that's made. Either problem leads to the same outcome: high levels of glucose in the blood. (Type 2  Diabetes and Diabetes Education)

Diabetic Neuropathies
Neuropathies lead to numbness and sometimes pain and weakness in the hands, arms, feet, and legs. Problems may also occur in every organ system, including the digestive tract, heart, and sex organs. An estimated 50 percent of those with diabetes have some form of neuropathy, but not all with neuropathy have symptoms.  (Types of Neuropathy, Proximal Neuropathy, Focal Neuropathy, Neuropathy Treatment)

Stress Can Cause Nutrient Deficiencies
Enough of the Right Nutrients Can Prevent Stress, and Controlling Stress Can, in Turn, Prevent Nutrient Deficiencies. Water-soluble nutrients such as the B vitamins, vitamin C, and all of the minerals are generally excreted at a faster rate during periods of stress.

Diabetes Problems "Vitamin Deficiency Link"
A simple vitamin deficiency may be the cause of many of the side effects of diabetes, a study suggests. Researchers found people with diabetes expelled thiamine - vitamin B1 - from their bodies at 15 times the normal rate in a study of 94 people. (Vitamin Deficiency, Thiamine, Heart Disease, Eye Disease)

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.

Melatonin: A Safe, Natural Alternative to Sleeping Pills
Losing an occasional night's sleep is no big deal, but losing sleep night after night takes its toll on your brain. New research shows that chronic sleep deprivation causes a build-up of beta-amyloid in the brain, a protein associated with Alzheimer’s disease. (Alzheimer's Disease, Sleeping Pills, Anti-aging)

Eye Disease In African Americans
Time and again, studies show that poor blood glucose control increases the risk of complications such as diabetic retinopathy, a common cause of blindness. Now, a new caveat-the risk is particularly high in African Americans. (Retinopathy, Diabetic Complications, Type 1 Diabetes)

Heart Of The Matter: The Care And Feeding Of Old Thumper
Coronary heart disease (CHD) remains the single largest killer of American men and women. One of every five deaths in the United States is caused by heart attacks-in 2004, for example, there was one evey minute. About 38% of the people who experience a heart attack in a given year will die from it. And unless dramatic diet and lifestyle changes are enacted, almost all of the remaining 62% will either die of a second heart attack or heart failure or suffer a greatly reduced quality of life. (Cardiovascular Disease, Heart Attack)

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)

What Makes Diabetes Painful?
Diabetes can destroy small blood vessels, which in turn can damage the nervous system, and these damaged nerves can cause pain. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Nervous System)

Sight Lines
In the U.S., 1 million blind adults ages 40 and older, and 2.4 million adults who are visually impaired, do without life's images. By 2020, there could be 5.5 million such cases, according to the National Eye Institute (NEI). Here's a rundown of the leading causes of blindness and vision impairment. (Diabetic Complications, Diabetic Retinopathy)

Bladder Neuropathy - Neurogenic Bladder
Three different types of nerves control how your bladder functions. Damage to any of these nerves can cause problems with the way the bladder functions. This type of problem is often called bladder neuropathy, bladder dysfunction, or neurogenic bladder. (Autonomic Neuropathy,  Diabetic Complications)
