Original article was written by Keith Henry

Insulin Resistance : The basis or forerunner of diabetes is insulin resistance.

However Insulin Resistance is associated with more than just diabetes. Fact: 90 percent of all diabetics (those with type 2 diabetes) have a pancreas that produces plenty of insulin.

Fact : Their cells resist the efforts of insulin and refuse to let the insulin in.

Fact : Research suggests that the root cause of insulin resistance is found in an intercellular breakdown in signaling. Insulin is a chemical messenger. It sends signals to proteins called GLUT- 4 transporters.

Fact : The pancreas responds by churning out more and still more insulin...the knock becomes louder and louder on the door of the cells...The levels of glucose as well as the levels of insulin in the blood rise, sometimes significantly. It is called "compensated" because the pancreas responded by producing more insulin, and glucose levels eventually normalized.

Uncontrolled Diabetes Can Cause :

· Blindness : (#1 cause in of blindness in people 20-74),

· Kidney Failure :( diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure)

· Nerve Damage : (diabetic neuropathy effects 60-70 percent of all diabetics...nerve damage may also impair digestion and sexual function, especially in men, it may also cause a number of other complications.

· Amputations : (Over 56,000 amputations are performed annually...In 2004, about 71,000 non-traumatic lower-limb amputations were performed in people with diabetes.

· Heart disease and stroke : (Heart disease and stroke account for about 65% of deaths in people with diabetes, Adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates about 2 to 4 times higher than adults without diabetes. The risk for stroke is 2 to 4 times higher and the risk of death from stroke is 2.8 times higher among people with diabetes).

7 Herbs That All Diabetics Should Know About...

The herbal aspect is only one aspect of a total program which includes lifestyle and eating habit changes. However the herbal element must not be overlooked. There are more than just seven herbs that are helpful but these are some of the good ones...:

Ø Licorice : Acts like the hormone cortisol and helps the blood sugar...Maybe the best single herb that you can take for this condition. Increases the effectiveness of glucocorticoids (adrenal hormones) circulating in the liver and mimics the action of those hormones. Eating this herb helping prevents the destruction of the pancreas.

Ø Bilberry: Helps control insulin levels, and helps with diabetic retinopathy.

Ø Wild Yam: Helps control insulin levels.

Ø Cedar Berries: Helps rebuild and rejuvenate the pancreas.

Ø Ginger Root : Works indirectly to the availability of dietary nutrients necessary for digestion and metabolism.

Ø Fenugreek: The seeds have been shown to lower blood sugar.

Ø Golden Seal : Golden seal has the ability to lower bleed sugar. In my herbal practice and ministry I am encountering more and more people that need help with diabetes.

Herbal Remedies For Diabetes - Some Observations

Original article was written by Edwin Buckley

"Many herbs supposedly have glucose-lowering effects, but there are not enough data on any herb to recommend it for use in people with diabetes. Herbs are not considered food by the Food and Drug Administration and are not tested for quality or content. Discuss the herbal dietary supplements with your doctor or dietitian before trying them. They may interact poorly with your diabetes medication (my italics)."

Unfortunately, there is also a certain fruit I love. From the Department of Complementary Medicine, Peninsula Medical School, Universities of Exeter and Plymouth, UK, I extracted the supplement of a paper entitled Adverse events of herbal food supplements for body weight reduction: systematic review, by M. H. Pittler, K. Schmidt, and E. Ernst, and it states as follows:

"In conclusion, adverse events are reported for a number of herbal food supplements, which are used for reducing body weight.
