Why should women worry about diabetes?:ABC news:"Diabetes robs women of their fertility, interferes with their sex lives, threatens their eyesight, and boosts their risk of heart disease and stroke. And for the youngsters who believe diabetes is a concern of older age, consider this: cases among 30-somethings jumped by 76 percent over the last 10 years. Though the disease has reached epidemic proportions among both sexes, diabetes is taking an increasingly harsh toll on women: more than 2.5 million American women are unknowingly affected by diabetes, while millions more have also undetected "pre-diabetes.""
http://abcnews.go.com/sections/living/DailyNews/ONCALLwomen_diabetes020409.html

Preconception care of women with diabetes:diabetes care:"To prevent early pregnancy loss and very costly congenital malformations in infants of diabetic mothers, optimal medical care and patient education and training must begin before conception. This is best accomplished through a multi-disciplinary team approach including a diabetologist, internist or family practice physician, obstetrician, diabetes educators including registered nurse, registered dietitian, and social worker, and other specialists as necessary. Ultimately, the woman with diabetes must become the most active member of the team, calling upon the other members for specific guidance and expertise to help her toward her goal of a healthy pregnancy and offspring."
http://www.findarticles.com/cf_dls/m0CUH/1_23/59175332/p1/article.jhtml

Encouraging women to take charge of diabetes:Food and Drug Administration:"Diabetes is a unique condition for women. When compared with men, women have a 50 percent greater risk of diabetic coma, a condition brought on by poorly controlled diabetes and lack of insulin. Women with diabetes have heart disease rates similar to men, but more women with diabetes die from a first heart attack than do men with diabetes. Diabetes also poses special challenges during pregnancy. Compared with women who don't have diabetes, women with diabetes are up to five times more likely to develop toxemia, a disorder marked by hypertension, protein in the urine, swelling, headache, and visual disturbances. Diabetes during pregnancy (gestational diabetes) results in an increased risk for problems such as high birth weight, birth defects, and other complications for the mother. Children born of mothers who developed gestational diabetes are more likely to be overweight or obese during adolescence and therefore are at greater risk for diabetes as well. Women who have had gestational diabetes are at increased risk for developing Type 2 diabetes later."
http://www.fda.gov/fdac/features/2001/601_diab.html

Diet stragegies for women with diabetes:Joslin diabetes center:"If you're a woman with diabetes, have you ever cut back on your insulin — perhaps just a little — because you've discovered that you can lose a few pounds in a few days times by doing so? And then, when you go back to using your normal amount of insulin, are you dismayed to discover that you gain the weight back — and perhaps more — in equally rapid fashion? Over time, have you come to blame the insulin for your weight gain problems, so you take less insulin than you should — even though you're blood sugars run higher as a result?"
http://www.joslin.harvard.edu/education/library/wmagdiet.shtml

Diabetes risk for women:pfizer:"More women than men have diabetes. Take a look at the risk factors, and then get to know the symptoms: Family history of diabetes Over 40 years of age African American, Hispanic, or Native American History of diabetes during pregnancy Obesity Let your healthcare provider know if you feel generally fatigued or experience greater thirst, frequent urination, vaginal or yeast infections, unexplained weight loss, or slow-healing cuts and bruises. Your healthcare provider may decide to screen you for diabetes."
http://www.pfizerforwomen.com/womenlibrary/ArticleTemplate.jhtml;jsessionid=JQPZ0ZX04TO5MP5MCCHETIQ?gadgetURL=/library/Articles/hc_women50_08.html&source=3

Family planning for women with diabetes:The diabetes Monitor:"Before the discovery of insulin, diabetic pregnancies were almost unheard of. Until about 25 years ago, many physicians discouraged women with diabetes from attempting pregnancy, since the risks of health problems for both the mother and child were too great. However, with the development of new tests and new theories about managing diabetes, it is reasonable for a young woman with diabetes to plan to have a family. The decision to have a child is a major decision for a diabetic woman. The pregnancy will be a high risk situation, with respect to physical health, emotional responses, and financial concerns. It will require close cooperation between the patient, her obstetrician, her diabetologist, and a pediatrician."
http://www.diabetesmonitor.com/dm-fam-p.htm

A dozen tips for women with diabetes:foot.com:" 1. Do review your treatment plan with your doctor or health care provider at least once a year. Make changes if your plan is not working well. 2. Do work with a dietitian. Create a meal plan that gives you healthy choices and is just right for you. 3. Do have a snack when you're hungry. Choose something healthy that fits into your overall meal plan. 4. Do ask your health care provider for an A1C test. A1C, short for hemoglobin A1C, is the best test to know if your blood glucose (sugar) is under control "
http://news.foot.com/news/1291.html

Diabetes and the African american women:National Women's Health Information Center:"Research suggests that many African Americans carry a gene that predisposes them toward impaired glucose tolerance, one of the risk factors for diabetes. African American women also have a higher rate of obesity, another risk factor for diabetes. African American women between the ages of 25 and 74 are more overweight compared to white women of the same age group. Obesity and diabetes are highly correlated especially among women. This correlation has been reported by many researchers."
http://www.4woman.gov/faq/diabetesafrc.htm

How your type 2 diabetes may be different from men's:diabetes health monitor:"Researchers studied some 4,500 Native Americans from 13 communities. They compared women who had diabetes with women who did not. They also compared men who had diabetes with men who didn't. Then they compared the differences among the women with the differences among the men. Looking at a single ethnic group whose characteristics were similar simplified comparisons. The results were in keeping with those of other studies."
http://www.healthmonitor.com/TEMPRES/diab050400IS.htm

Why Do Older Women with Diabetes Have an Increased Fracture Risk?:Wayne State University School of Medicine:"By definition, osteoporosis is characterized by low bone mass, architectural deterioration, increased fragility, and an increased fracture risk. A multitude of studies has demonstrated the relationship between low bone mass and increased fracture risk, mainly in white populations. Conversely, populations with high bone mass generally have a lower fracture risk. However, an apparent paradox emerges from the study by Schwartz et al., in this issue of the journal. They report that a population with relatively high bone mass—people with type 2 diabetes—have an increased fracture risk compared with people without diabetes. This is perhaps more surprising because of the association between type 2 diabetes and obesity, and the presumed protective effect of obesity against osteoporosis and fractures. So why do these older women with diabetes have more fractures? Can these fractures be attributed to osteoporosis?"

Socioeconomic status of women with diabetes:Center for Disease Control:"Persons whose socioeconomic status is low have poorer health than other persons (1,2) and are less likely to have adequate access to care or to receive high-quality clinical and prevention care services (3). In the United States, diabetes is a potentially debilitating disease that is increasing in prevalence (4); however, little is known about the socioeconomic status of persons with diabetes (5--7). Women account for approximately 52% of all persons less than 20 years with diabetes (4). To assess the socioeconomic status of women with diabetes, CDC analyzed data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), which indicated that the socioeconomic status of women with diabetes in 2000 was markedly lower than that of women without diabetes. Efforts should be focused to understand the impact of socioeconomic conditions on the health and quality of care of women with diabetes."
http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5107a3.htm

Eating disorders in adolescent females with and without type 1 diabetes: cross sectional study:bmj.com:"Eating disorders are common in late adolescent and young adult women in westernised countries. These conditions are of particular concern in young women with type 1 diabetes mellitus because of their association with impaired metabolic control and an earlier than expected onset of diabetes related complications.4-6 Aspects of type 1 diabetes and its treatment that have been postulated to increase the risk of eating disorders in young women include the cycle of weight loss at disease onset and subsequent weight gain with the initiation of insulin treatment, the trend towards higher body mass index, dietary restraint necessitated by diabetes management, and the availability of deliberate insulin underdosing or omission as a weight loss strategy. However, whether eating disorders occur more frequently in females with diabetes than their non-diabetic peers is controversial."
http://bmj.com/cgi/content/full/320/7249/1563

Diabetes Mellitus and Cardiovascular Disease in Women:Journal of the American Medical Association:"An association between both a postmenopausal increase in blood pressure and CHD that coincide with loss of ovarian function suggests that estrogen and/or progesterone may be protective against hypertension and CHD. Diabetes removes the normal sex difference in the prevalence of CHD. Increased mortality in women with CHD and diabetes compared with women without diabetes has been observed in epidemiological studies."
