1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent
diabetes, is usually first diagnosed in children, teenagers, or young
form of diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas no longer make insulin
because the body's immune system has attacked and destroyed them.
2 diabetes, formerly called adult-onset diabetes or noninsulin-dependent
diabetes, is the most common form of diabetes. People can develop
type 2 diabetes at any age-even during childhood.
form of diabetes usually begins with insulin resistance, a condition
in which fat, muscle, and liver cells do not use insulin properly.
the pancreas keeps up with the added demand by producing more insulin.
In time, however, it loses the ability to secrete enough insulin in
response to meals.
researchers believe that a lack of chromium may be one of the causes
of type 2 diabetes.
deficiency may cause insulin resistance, and supplementation with
adequate chromium may overcome that resistance.
are, however, other causes of insulin resistance that are not chromium-based
and thus not overcome by chromium supplementation.
generally presumed that chromium supplementation is of no benefit
to people with Type I diabetes, since their problem is insulin insufficiency.
this is the case, sometimes Type I is combined with Type II, and chromium
supplementation helps the patient overall.
to confirm cinnamon's beneficial actions in humans are currently underway
with the most recent report coming from researchers from the US Agricultural
Research Service, who have shown that less than half a teaspoon per
day of cinnamon reduces blood sugar levels in persons with type 2
supplements may improve heart health and blood sugar and help manage
high cholesterol and high blood pressure in individuals with diabetes.
High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease are all common
problems associated with diabetes.
some concern that CoQ10 may cause a sudden and dramatic drop in blood
sugar (called hypoglycemia), two recent clinical studies in people
with diabetes given CoQ10, 200 mg 2 times daily, showed no hypoglycemic
