Why Take Supplements?
The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that a large percentage of Americans get less than 70 percent of the recommended dietary allowance of antioxidant vitamins and many essential minerals.  Countless studies link a host of diseases (including atherosclerosis and heart disease, high blood pressure, colitis, diabetes) to today's highly processed diet, high in saturated and trans fats, caffeine, and refined carbohydrates. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Management)

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)

Study Finds Link Between Alzheimer's, Diabetes
A statistical analysis found that people with diabetes had a much higher rate of developing Alzheimer's disease than those who don't have diabetes. Age is still the greatest risk factor for developing Alzheimer's. One in 10 Americans over 65 and nearly half of those over 85 have the incurable, progressive brain disease.

Type 2 Diabetics' Acidity Heightens Risk For Kidney Stones
Individuals with type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus) are at increased risk for developing kidney stones in general, and have a particular risk for uric-acid stones. (Diabetic Complications and Type 2 Diabetes)

Nature's Sweet Benefits
Chalk up another one for Mother Nature. Most people with diabetes rely on drugs and lifestyle modifications to moderate their body chemistry. But a host of natural herbal supplements may further help them manage blood glucose levels, improve their vision, and alleviate a variety of diabetes-related health problems.

New Review Endorses CV Benefits of Fish Oil

Promoting And Protecting Brain Health
In addition to choosing fresh, organic foods and using brain-healthy ways to prepare them, it is possible to further boost the health of our brains by supplementing our daily menu of foods with vitamins, minerals, and other supplements that specifically target and enrich the function of the brain. In truth, it can be hard to get the optimal levels of the vitamins and minerals we need through diet alone.

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.
