In recognition of American Diabetes Month, observed annually in November, Xlear, Inc. is promoting the benefits of XyloSweet as a healthy alternative to sugar for people with diabetes or who are at risk for diabetes.

My response was always the truth - diet and exercise, the same thing everyone is told and most follow, at least for a spell. What was lacking in the response was my motivation. My weight reduction was not from illness. I felt fine and was one of those who "didn't know I had diabetes" until the blood...

He explained how, to prevent infection, I should examine the bottom of my feet for cuts periodically using a mirror. I should also cut my toenails straight across to keep them from growing into...

By NATALIE MIKLES A Type 2 diabetes diagnosis doesn't end with just a prescription. A prescription or two may be part of that plan. But for many, treatment is far more than drugs, blood sugar checks and follow-up visits. It's a life-changing course of diet and exercise that for some is a complete overhaul of their current lifestyles. For newly diagnosed diabetes patients, some of whom have gone their entire lives not thinking about the foods they're putting into their bodies, a...
