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)

Women and Diabetes

Living With Diabetes? Save Your Heart!

(Diabetic Complications, Cardiovascular Disease, Heart Attack, Stroke)

The number of American adults diagnosed with this disease annually has spiked 54% in the last decade and now stands at an estimated 21 million.  At this very moment approximately one-third of those affected don’t even know they are at risk and it takes an average of 4 to 7 years before they learn the truth.

The Role of Sleep in Type 2 Diabetes
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35 percent of Americans report getting less than the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep each night. This rampant deprivation has consequences, and not just grogginess: People who don’t get enough sleep are prone to a slew of health problems, including type 2 diabetes. (Sleep Deprivation, Type 2 Diabetes)

Calcium and Vitamin D For Diabetes
While diet, exercise, weight loss, and medications are prescribed for people with diabetes, more Americans are turning to nutritional support for additional help.

Higher Body Iron Stores Predict Future Risk of Women Developing Type 2 Diabetes
In the first large study to assess iron stores and risk of type 2 diabetes in an apparently healthy population, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) found that higher iron stores were associated with significantly elevated risk of type 2 diabetes, independent of other known diabetes risk factors. (Diabetes Research, Type 2 Diabetes)

Diabetes Risk May Be Associated With Elevated Iron Levels
High levels of iron in the blood may foreshadow the development of type 2 diabetes, a new study suggests. Research has shown that people with a genetic condition that causes huge elevations of iron in the blood are known to be at risk for type 2 diabetes. This study aimed to determine whether the diabetes link would hold true for healthy people with just mildly elevated levels of iron. (Diabetes Research)

LADA or Diabetes 1.5
Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA), also called slow-onset diabetes or diabetes 1.5, has similarities both to type 1 and type 2. Often it is not recognized as LADA or type 1.5, because at first it looks like and reacts positively to treatments for type 2. However, it ends up revealing itself as an autoimmune form of diabetes, more like type 1. (Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes Education)

Diabetes Projections Exceed Estimates
An estimated 246 million people in the world have diabetes, and within 20 years the disease could afflict 380 million people, the International Diabetes Federation reported. (Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes Statistics)

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.

Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT)
a study by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, conducted from 1983 to 1993 in people with Type 1 diabetes. The study showed that intensive therapy compared to conventional therapy significantly helped prevent or delay diabetes complications. Intensive therapy included multiple daily insulin injections or the use of an insulin pump with multiple blood glucose readings each day. Complications followed in the study included diabetic retinopathy, neuropathy and nephropathy.

fasting blood glucose test
a check of a person's blood glucose level after the person has not eaten for 8 to 12 hours (usually overnight). This test is used to diagnose pre-diabetes and diabetes. It is also used to monitor people with diabetes.

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.
