Straight Talk: Diabetes And Intimacy
It's easy to pin a lagging libido on stress, depression, age, or lack of sleep. But when you have diabetes, there may be an underlying factor - symptoms related to diabetes. (Diabetic Complications, Erectile Dysfunction, ED, Depression)

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)

Eating Healthy on $7 A Day or Less
NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. Diabetes is an expensive disease. When a family member has either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, the family's income has to cover medications or insulin and syringes, monitoring equipment and strips, medical visits, diabetes books and magazines, and, of course, healthful foods. No wonder it's tempting to shortchange the last item. But healthful foods are actually a blue chip investment. Good nutrition will help keep your blood glucose in balance now and will likely help prevent costly complications and expensive medical care later. (Diabetes Meal Planning and Diabetes Menu)

Managing Hypoglycemia - Basic Guidelines (Part I)
Hypoglycemia can be the precursor to Type II diabetes and other insulin resistance related ailments. The good news is that treatment is easy  to understand, and you can manage it yourself.  Best of all, the treatment is without risk, whether or not you actually have hypoglycemia because the treatment is simply a change in diet. (Low blood sugar)

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)

Men and Diabetes
Complications of diabetes in men can include sexual dysfunction, heart disease, diabetic retinopathy, intermittent claudication and neuropathy. Diabetes research has brought to light the importance of prevention;  including improved blood glucose control, blood pressure control and improved control of cholesterol and lipids.

Get A "Grrip!": Diabetes and Your Hands
When you hear about the complications of diabetes, you usually hear about your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and feet. But diabetes can affect the muscles and joints of your hands, too. Diabetes-related hand conditions are usually not life-threatening, but they can have a great impact on the quality of your life. (Diabetic Complications, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Stiff-Hand Syndrome, Dupuytren's Contracture)

Erectile Dysfunction and Diabetes: Keys to Prevention and Treatment
Erectile dysfunction is a common complication of diabetes. You can reduce your risk of developing erectile dysfunction, prevent it from worsening and, in many cases, safely and effectively treat it. (Erectile Dysfunction, Diabetic Complications, Neuropathy, Cardiovascular Disease)

Frozen Shoulder
A body in motion tends to stay in motion, and a body at rest tends to stay at rest. Such is the case with your shoulder and a condition called adhesive capsulitis. Adhesive capsulitis is more commonly known as frozen shoulder.  Diabetes is a risk factor for frozen shoulder, although precisely why that's so is a subject the medical community is still researching. (Diabetic Complications, Diabetes Care)

Stress
Stress results when something causes your body to behave as if it were under attack. When stress occurs, the body prepares to take action. This preparation is called the fight-or-flight response. In people who have diabetes, the fight-or-flight response does not work well. Insulin is not always able to let the extra energy into the cells, so glucose piles up in the blood. (Stress, Diabetic Complications, High Blood Sugar)

Blood Sugar Testing
What is a good blood sugar range for a person with diabetes? How do you check your blood sugar? When should you check your blood sugar? What is your A1c test? Learn the answers to these and other important questions regarding blood sugar testing. (Normal blood sugar level and Diabetes Management)

All About Peripheral Arterial Disease
Peripheral arterial disease, also called PAD, occurs when blood vessels in the legs are narrowed or blocked by fatty deposits. Blood flow to your feet and legs decreases. If you have PAD, you have an increased risk for heart attack and stroke. An estimated one out of every three people with diabetes over the age of 50 have this condition. However, many of those with warning signs don't realize that they have PAD and therefore don't get treatment. (Diabetes Complications, Heart Attack, Stroke)

Type 2 Review
If you've  become accustomed to the blood sugar roller coaster unleashed by refined sugars and processed foods, you've probably had fleeting thoughts about the possibility of developing type 2 diabetes. Perhaps other factors also put you at risk for diabetes. But you should know that relatively simple lifestyle modifications can prevent type 2 diabetes. ( Diabetic Risk Factors, Diabetic Symptoms, Preventing Diabetes)

Those With PCOS Can Benefit from Lo Carb Diet
Women with Polycystic ovary syndrome have an increased risk of developing insulin resistance, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, lipid abnormalities and endometrial carcinoma (cancer). Many non-medical approaches can relieve or reduce specific symptoms. Many women with PCOS follow a low-carbohydrate diet designed to lose or maintain their weight.

Butterbur: A Plant Alternative to Antihistamines
Butterbur, a plant found in Europe, Asia and in parts of North American, has been used for centuries as an herbal treatment. Only recently, however, have scientists begun to find that it may truly have a place alongside more traditional treatments for asthma and migraines. The most recent findings show that butterbur may be as effective as antihistamines in reducing the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever.

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.

a device used to inject medications or other liquids into body tissues. The syringe for insulin has a hollow plastic tube with a plunger inside and a needle on the end.
