Dear Reader,

There's always the worry in winter that we'll be putting on a few extra pounds... especially with all the comfort eating we might do on those cold winter nights. But for a lot of people, there's a much bigger reason to worry — type 2 diabetes and blood-sugar management.

And if managing your blood sugar is a concern, I'm sure this is already on your mind; you didn't need me to remind you.

But what you may not know is that there's a whole new reason to carefully manage your diabetes.

Recently, a study published in the journal Diabetes Care uncovered a frightening link between type 2 diabetes and cognitive impairment. That's right — on top of all the other complications that can come with having diabetes, now you have to worry about your brain, too.

For the past five years, a group of researchers have studied the effects of diabetes on the brain. What they've found is nothing short of alarming. It turns out that cognitive problems such as memory loss, depression, and others can come along with diabetes.

The link is due to two adhesion molecules called sVCAM and sJCAM. These molecules cause inflammation in the brain, affecting blood vessels and causing brain tissue to die. The tissue that's especially vulnerable to this effect is located in the parts of the brain that control decision making, language, memory, and completing complex tasks.

Unfortunately, the researchers found that people with diabetes had "significantly more" brain atrophy than people who didn't have the disease.

On average, your brain starts shrinking about 1 per cent per year after you turn 65. Add diabetes to the mix, and you're looking at a shocking decline of 15 per cent per year.

Now, I'm not telling you this to scare you. It IS scary, yes — but I'm really telling you to illustrate just how important it is to be vigilant about keeping your blood sugar under control.

But what if you are already doing everything you thought you could do?

The fact is if you're watching your diet, exercising, and following your doctor's advice the last thing you should have to do is live in fear of your next doctor's visit worrying that you still aren't doing enough.

In the past, we've offered many helpful tips for diabetes management. One of these natural wonders is chromium. Chromium can reduce heart disease risk and lower insulin levels (one study showing this effect had participants taking 1 milligram of chromium picolinate per day).

EXPOSING The Real Truth About Diabetes

Diabetes is fast turning into a serious problem: According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), diabetes affects over 220 million people globally and the consequences of high blood sugar kill 3.4 million every year.

Experts predict that by 2025, more than 5 million in the UK will have diabetes...

Are you a victim of this global epidemic? Worse still, does your doctor respond the only way he is trained to do... by issuing prescription drugs?

The Real Diabetes Truth is dedicated to all those who are suffering with diabetes and who feel let down by the mainstream. Our mission is to make sure you're the first to find out about the very latest cutting-edge natural breakthroughs and safe alternatives that can help bring your blood sugar levels down and transform your health.

Banishing bursitis

Q: Are there any vitamins or herbal treatments that will get rid of bursitis pain?

Dr. Jonathan V. Wright: There is an all-natural vitamin B12 treatment for bursitis that was developed by Dr. Irving S. Klemes nearly 50 years ago that often eliminates bursitis pain in as little as two weeks.

However, even if Dr. Klemes's B12 treatment is as successful for your bursitis as it has been for the majority of the people who have tried it, it's important not to just assume your health problems are over. Bursitis can also be a signal that you have another problem — a stomach that isn't producing enough acid for optimal digestion, as well as not producing enough of the natural substance your body needs for optimal vitamin B12 absorption.

So, I always recommend that patients with bursitis also have a gastric analysis carried out. In over 95 per cent of cases, the test discloses hypochlorydria (low stomach acid production) or in a few cases achlorhydria (no stomach acid production at all). People with under-functioning stomachs are routinely found to have low levels of essential amino acids and low levels of nearly all the minerals.

With low levels of so many essential nutrients, it's no wonder that the risk of other health problems is higher than it should be for individuals with bursitis.
