Benfotiamine - Protection Against Diabetic Complications
Benfotiamine, a little-known fat-soluble form of vitamin B1, has been shown to help prevent the development and progression of many diabetic complications. Used for decades in Europe as a prescription medication, benfotiamine fights against the progression of diabetic nerve, kidney, and retinal damage, and relieves the painful symptoms of diabetic neuropathy

Using Herbs to Manage High Blood Sugar
Sustainable blood sugar control is critical to a diabetic patient’s health over time. Often, as a diabetic patient ages, insulin-reducing medications begin to lose their effectiveness. Treatment with herbs, along with carefully controlled nutrition and daily exercise, can help diabetic patients keep blood sugar levels under control over the long term. (Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Pterocarpus marsupium, High Blood Sugar)

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)

A Natural Approach to Diabetes
Many diabetics have low blood levels of B6. Levels are even lower in diabetics with nerve damage. Supplementation with Vitamins B6 and B12, including a form of B12 called methylcobalamin, play an important role in the prevention and treatment of many forms of diabetic neuropathy. (Diabetes Nutrition, Polyneuropathy, Peripheral Neuropathy, Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Peripheral Neuropathy
There are probably more studies attesting to the benefits of  alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) for dealing with peripheral neuropathy than studies for any other nutrient. ALA is known as a "universal antioxidant." In addition to its remarkable abilities as a natural antioxidant, it is noted for protecting nerves from oxidative damage and inflammation. (preventing neuropathy, diabetic nutrition)

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)

Alpha Lipoic Acid Reverses Nerve Damage In Diabetics
Nerve damage is one of diabetes' most devastating complications and affects more than 50 percent of all diabetics. Its typical course is relentlessly downhill and there are no effective medicines to treat it. But now there is hope. A study recently published in Diabetes Care reports that the antioxidant nutrient alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) can partly restore diabetic nerve function. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications)

What Is Diabetic Eye Disease?
The most common diabetic eye disease is diabetic retinopathy.  Vision may not change until the disease becomes severe. That is why regular eye examinations for people with diabetes are so important. (Glaucoma, Cataracts)

The Importance Of A Daily Multivitamin
In research conducted in Germany, diets of type 2 diabetic patients were analyzed and found to be deficient in one or more of 22 nutrients evaluated. More alarming, a whopping 97 percent of the diabetic patients did not obtain three to seven nutrients in the recommended amounts from their diets. (Diabetes Nutrition, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes)

Neuropathy - Nutrient Therapies
Biotin, choline, inositol, and thiamine are B vitamins that have all been found useful in treating the peripheral and autonomic neuropathies found in diabetes. In addition, Alpha-lipoic acid has long been used in Europe for the treatment of peripheral neuropathy in diabetics. Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been found to have important links to peripheral nerve function. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Benfotiamine, Diabetic Product, Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate)

Why B1 May Protect Diabetics
Can taking thiamine help prevent diabetic kidney disease? Recent studies show that high-dose supplementation with vitamin B1 prevents the development of diabetic kidney disease (nephropathy) in rats with toxin-induced diabetes. This study, combined with others with similar results, lends support to taking high dose thiamine supplements to ward off diabetic complications. (Diabetes Education)

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.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid- Nature's Perfect Antioxidant
Alpha-lipoic acid is an approved drug in Germany for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. Although alpha-lipoic acid's primary effect in improving neuropathy is thought to be the result of its antioxidant effects, it has also been shown to lead to an improvement in blood sugar metabolism, improve blood flow to peripheral nerves, and actually stimulate the regeneration of nerve fibers. (diabetes treatment, diabetic nutrition, preventing neuropathy)

Antioxidant Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
A collaborative study between Mayo Clinic and a medical center in Russia found that alpha lipoic acid (ALA) significantly and rapidly reduces the frequency and severity of symptoms of the most common kind of diabetic neuropathy.  (Neuropathy and Diabetic Complications)

A1C - An Important Blood Test
The fasting blood sugar test (FBS), which is still the most commonly performed test for Diabetes, does not reflect the true picture of diabetic control over a long period of time. The glycated hemoglobin a1c test is a more accurate diabetes test to reflect overall blood sugar control. (A1C or aIc, blood sugar testing)
