Vitamin B12 Screening Urged for Metformin Users
 A study presented in June 2009 at the American Diabetes Association's 69th Annual Scientific Sessions, looked at the prevalence of vitamin B12 deficiency in 76 people with type 2 diabetes who had been taking Metformin for at least one year. The results showed that more than 75% of Metformin users who had low vitamin B12 levels also had evidence of peripheral neuropathy. 

Take Care of Yourself ... Take Care of Your Diabetes
There's a lot you can do to stay healthy. Research shows that if you keep your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol close to target, you may prevent or delay serious health problems. (Diabetes Education)

Benfotiamine
Benfotiamine is a specialized form of Vitamin B1 and has been recognized for its usefulness for those with neuropathy. There are implications that benfotiamine is more beneficial in dealing with peripheral neuropathy than other forms of B1. A number of studies, in fact, have borne this out. (diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, neuropathy treatment, benfotamine)

Neuropathy Complication - Charcot's Foot
Sometimes neuropathy can trigger a cascade of diabetes related complications, such as Charcot's foot (Charcot's joint). This disorder usually affects weight-bearing joints, such as the ankles. The key to treating Charcot's foot involves keeping weight off the joint and wearing special footwear. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Neuropathy Symptoms, Types of Neuropathy, Neuroarthropathy)

Diabetes: Fact or Myth?
Sugar has long had a bad reputation, especially among people with diabetes. People used to think that eating sugar would cause blood glucose levels to rise much more rapidly than eating other types of carbohydrates, such as bread or potatoes. It turns out that sugar's bad rap is not entirely deserved. Researchers are now finding that simple carbohydrates, such as sugar, and complex carbohydrates, such as bread and potatoes, are digested at the same rate. (Diabetes Diet and Recipes)

Blood Sugar Levels - Guidelines for Diabetes
Whether you have type 1 or type II diabetes or gestational diabetes, the goals of achieving control of blood glucose levels are similar: to keep blood glucose as close as possible to that of a person without diabetes.

Living With Diabetes? Save Your Heart!
People who have diabetes are more likely to have a heart attack or stroke than they are to lose a limb. Despite that fact, 60 percent of those with diabetes don't consider cardiovascular disease a serious complication, according to a survey conducted by the American Diabetes Association and the American College of Cardiology. (Diabetic Complications, Cardiovascular Disease, Heart Attack, Stroke)

Most Diabetics Don't Exercise
Bad news when it comes to diabetics and exercise: Most people with Type 2 diabetes or at risk for it apparently ignore their doctors' advice to be active. Fewer than 40 percent get exercise, a new study found, and the more in danger the patients are, the less likely they are to be active. (Type 2 Diabetes, Exercise, Diabetes Management)

Mastering Your Diabetes (Before Diabetes Masters You)
If you have numbness in your feet, is there any point to controlling blood sugars? (Neuropathy, Peripheral Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications)

Physical Activity: Why Exercise?
Increasing your physical activity is one of the most helpful things you can do for yourself, especially if you have diabetes. This doesn't necessarily mean joining a health club and working out, but rather adding daily routines that can boost your activity level, from walking the dog to taking the stairs instead of the elevator. (Exercise and Diabetes Education)

Good Fats and Bad Fats
Some fats are bad such as saturated fats and trans-fats. However, there's another kind of fat called essential fatty acids - and they are indeed essential. These unsaturated fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fats, make our cell membranes more flexible, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and reduce mortality from heart disease. (Diabetic Nutrition, Essential Fatty Acids, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure)

Neuropathy Most Likely To Strike In Type 2 Diabetes Not In Type 1
Painful neuropathy is more common in patients with type 2 diabetes than in those with type 1, due to metabolic syndrome, researchers suggest, because of a link with the metabolic syndrome. (Diabetic Complications, Polyneuropathy, Metabolic Syndrome)

Menopause and Blood Sugar Control
If you have finally figured out how to control your blood glucose levels through a combination of meal planning, exercise, and oral diabetes medications or insulin, you should realize that menopause can throw your diabetes management plan out of balance. (Women's Health, Diabetes Management)

Fenugreek - Enhances Carb Metabolism for Diabetics
An extract from Fenugreek enhances carb metabolism showing promise for dieters and those with diabetes and insulin resistance. (Diabetes Food and Fenugreek)

Liver Disease: Are You At Risk?
Generally, when you think of someone who has liver disease, you think of someone who abuses alcohol. You may be surprised to learn that fatty liver disease is often present in people who drink little or no alcohol. Nonalcoholic fatty liver is present in approximately 10 to 20 percent of Americans, and the incidence in type 2 diabetes may be as high as 50 percent. (Liver Disease, Diabetic Complications, Type 2 Diabetes)
