A Compound In Red Wine Makes Fat Mice Healthy
A substance found in red wine protected mice from the ill effects of obesity and extended their life spans, raising the tantalizing prospect that the compound could do the same for humans and may also help people live longer, healthier lives. (Diabetes, Heart Disease, Resveratrol)

Good Fats
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are the "good" fats your body needs to function properly. They provide energy, increase your absorption of nutrients from foods and support the health of your bones, brain, breasts, eyes, heart, immune system, joints, nerves, muscles, prostate and skin. (Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, Eye Disease, Omega Fatty Acids)

Do You Know About Celiac Disease?
A link between diabetes and celiac disease, both autoimmune disorders, has been recognized for some time. People with type 1 diabetes have a greater risk for developing celiac disease, typically about 1 in 20. (In the general population, including people with type 2 diabetes, the rate may be as high as 1 in 133.) In most cases, diabetes is diagnosed first. (Celiac Disease, Diabetic Complications)

Research Touts Blueberries As Brain Food
An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but a daily serving of blueberries can help reduce your risk for dozens of debilitating illnesses, including obesity, cancer and Alzheimer's disease. (Alzheimers, Age-Related Memory Loss, Obesity, Cancer)

Gymnema Sylvestre – The #1 Natural Enemy of Diabetes
Studies show that Gymnema is a natural treatment for diabetes.  Case reports and studies involving both humans and animals suggest that it may work in several ways to help control both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

Reduce Your Risk of Memory Loss
Every essential nutrient (those not manufactured by the body) is important in brain function, but antioxidant nutrients which prevent the build-up of cell-destroying free radicals are crucial -- particularly vitamins C, E, selenium, grape seed extract, glutathione peroxidase, and superoxide dismutase (SOD). (Alzheimer's disease education)

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.

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)

Other Important Supplements - Essential Fatty Acids
There are two main EFA groups: omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. EFAs are components of cell membranes the body needs but cannot manufacture itself. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications, Essential Fatty Acids)

Top Five Ways To Feel Full And Eat Less
It's a common complaint: how can you lose weight if you're hungry all the time? The solution may be easier than you think. Many acts of overeating, in fact, may have less to do with appetite than the sheer amount of food we have on our plate. (Diabetic Meal Planning, High Protein Diet, Depression, Anxiety)

Managing Hypoglycemia - Helpful Supplements (Part II)
This article lists many supplements that are suggested as useful for hypoglycemia in the literature. Outlines the importance of the B vitamins in  metabolizing fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Calcium, chromium, magnesium, manganese, selenium, vitamin C, vitamin E and zinc are discussed.  (Low blood sugar)

Omega-3 Acids Thought To Benefit Dry-Eye Patients
Omega-3 acids may help alleviate some of your dry-eye patients’ symptoms. (Dry Eye)

Omega-3 - More Than A Fish Tale
Eating a diet rich in omega-3 fats seems especially important for people with diabetes, whose risk of heart disease is three times higher than normal. (Heart Disease, Diabetic Complications, Omega-3 Fats, Fish Oil)

The Many Benefits of Omega-3's
Flax is a seed that contains alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3s have been shown to reduce heart disease risk and also may help relieve depression and inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, flaxseed contains more plant lignans (a phytoestrogen and a fiber) than any other seed, and lignans may protect against breast, prostate, ovarian, uterine and colon cancer, diabetes and heart disease. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Research)

Hard To Digest
Diabetes related nerve damage can cause mild to severe digestive problems. Neuropathy most commonly affects the arms and legs, but for around half of those who have diabetes, the digestive system is the affected area. Signs, symptoms and dietary solutions are discussed. (diabetic neuropathy, reflux, diabetes meal planning)

microalbuminuria (MY-kro-al-BYOO-min-your-EE-ah)
the presence of small amounts of albumin, a protein, in the urine. Microalbuminuria is an early sign of kidney damage, or nephropathy, a common and serious complication of diabetes. The ADA recommends that people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes be tested for microalbuminuria at the time they are diagnosed and every year thereafter; people with type 1 diabetes should be tested 5 years after diagnosis and every year thereafter. Microalbuminuria is usally managed by improving blood glucose control, reducing blood pressure, and modifying the diet.

Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)
a study by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases conducted from 1998 to 2001 in people at high risk for Type 2 diabetes. All study participants had impaired glucose tolerance, also called pre-diabetes, and were overweight. The study showed that people who lost 5 to 7 percent of their body weight through a low-fat, low-calorie diet and moderate exercise (usually walking for 30 minutes 5 days a week) reduced their risk of getting Type 2 diabetes by 58 percent. Participants who received treatment with the oral diabetes drug metformin reduced their risk of getting Type 2 diabetes by 31 percent.

creatinine (kree-AT-ih-nin)
a waste product from protein in the diet and from the muscles of the body. Creatinine is removed from the body by the kidneys; as kidney disease progresses, the level of creatinine in the blood increases.

calorie
a unit representing the energy provided by food. Carbohydrate, protein, fat and alcohol provide calories in the diet. Carbohydrate and protein have 4 calories per gram, fat has 9 calories per gram, and alcohol has 7 calories per gram.

juvenile diabetes
former term for insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), or Type 1 diabetes.
