Frozen Shoulder and Diabetes
Diabetes is known to affect the shoulder in several ways. Frozen shoulder seems to be the most common - with up to 20% of diabetic patients developing it at some time or other.  Diabetics not only get frozen shoulder more often than others but it lasts longer and is more painful for them when they do. (Diabetic Complications, Diabetes Care, Diabetes Treatment)

Vitamin Deficiency Common In Diabetes
Something like three out of every five patients with type 2 diabetes show signs of vitamin D deficiency. Widespread screening for vitamin D deficiency or routine vitamin D supplementation should be seriously considered for people with diabetes according to a recent report. (Diabetic Nutrition and Diabetes Diet)

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)

Diabetes-Related Heart Problems
Diabetes is only one factor that increases a person's risk for heart disease. Other factors include smoking, high cholesterol (high triglycerides), low HDL (or "good" cholesterol), being overweight, high blood pressure, your age, being male, and having a family history of heart disease.  Awareness of diabetes symptoms (diabetic symptoms) can go far in preventing the complications of diabetes. (diabetis)

Slight Weight Loss Reduces Diabetes Risk Dramatically
When a person is overweight, insulin cannot work as effectively to keep blood glucose levels normal because the body becomes resistant to the action of its own insulin. Lifestyle modification can reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes by 58% in people at high risk for the disease. (Type 2 Diabetes Diet)

Sodium and Persons With Diabetes
Persons with diabetes are encouraged to plan a diabetic diet that limits their sodium intake to help prevent or to control high blood pressure. Suggestions for diabetic meal planning that will help toward this goal. (Diabetic Nutrition and Diabetic Cooking)

Type 1 Diabetes Management
Because your body no longer makes insulin, insulin injections play a big role in your diabetes care plan. News from the American Diabetes Association advises that your type of insulin therapy should relate directly to your health and your lifestyle choices. Diabetis care advice.

Eating Right With Diabetes
Maintaining a healthy diet is important for everyone, but it is vital for people with diabetes. Diabetes diet suggestions start with an understanding of carbohydrates, fiber and fats. Tips apply to a gestational diabetes diet.  (Diabetic Food List & Diabetic Cooking) 

Women and Diabetes
For women who do not currently have diabetes, pregnancy brings the risk of gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes develops in 2% to 5% of all pregnancies but disappears when a pregnancy is over. Women who have had gestational diabetes are at an increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes later in life.

Hyperglycemia (in Juvenile Diabetes)
Diabetic adolescents are especially susceptible to hyperglycemia, since hormonal levels are in flux and many adolescents exhibit erratic eating and sleeping patterns. Be able to recognize the signs of hyperglycemia. (Diabetic child) 

Borderline Diabetes
Although borderline diabetes is not classed as diabetes,  the risk of developing other diabetic complications such as coronary heart disease is equal to that of any patient in the diabetic category.

Diabetes - The Inflammation Syndrome Connection
Many nutritional supplements can lessen the inflammation in diabetes, but it is essential that the underlying diet be corrected. That said, a key objective of supplementation should be to lower glucose levels and improve insulin function, which should in turn reduce inflammation. Helpful supplements include chromium, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and the omega-3 fatty acids. (Diabetes Nutrition, Inflammation, Arthritis, Heart Disease)

Diabetes and Omega-3
The essential fatty acids also affect the ability of the body's cells to respond to insulin. In a 1993 study, Australian researchers learned that insulin resistance is related to what kinds of fatty acids make up the cell membranes. The more Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids there are in the cell membranes of adult diabetics, the more their tissues respond to insulin.  Learn more about how the essential fatty acids can help in managing diabetes.

conventional therapy
a term used in clinical trials where one group receives treatment for diabetes in which A1C and blood glucose levels are kept at levels based on current practice guidelines. However, the goal is not to keep blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible, as is done in intensive therapy. Conventional therapy includes use of medication, meal planning and exercise, along with regular visits to health care providers.
