  Information on Diabetes  

Diabetes - Definition Definition.   Diabetes mellitus (MEL-ih-tus), or simply, diabetes, is a group of diseases characterized by high blood glucose levels that result from defects in the body's ability to produce and/or use insulin. Diabetes is the most common disorder of the endocrine (hormone) system. Unlike some traits, diabetes does not seem to be inherited in a simple pattern. Yet clearly, some people are born more likely to get diabetes than others. Types:

    Diabetes - Definition, Type 1 Diabetes Type 1 Diabetes | In type 1 diabetes, previously known as juvenile diabetes, the body’s immune system destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.

    Diabetes - Definition, Type 2 Diabetes Type 2 Diabetes | Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes accounting for 90%-95% of people with diabetes. It’s been seen more in children with diabetes too. Too much insulin (insulin resistance) may result from this condition.

    Diabetes - Definition, Prediabetes and Insulin Resistance Prediabetes and Insulin Resistance | About 41 million people in the U.S. suffer from prediabetes (impaired glucose tolerance). Sufferers should be aware that this condition also increases the risk of heart disease.

    Diabetes - Definition, Gestational Diabetes Gestational Diabetes | Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy and affects about 4% of all pregnancies. It increases complications for mother and baby.

Diabetes - Definition, plus Diabetes is very significant, and when diagnosed, should be taken seriously. In the U.S. alone, it impacts around 23.6 million people each year. Studies have also proven that it is currently the seventh main cause of death. Even those who do not die directly because of diabetes can find that their life expectancy is reduced by as much as fifteen years. Additionally, the heart disease risk can be doubled and diabetes can also cause other issues such as kidney failure, blindness in adults and the need to amputate the lower limbs.

Diabetes - Causes, incidence, and risk factors Causes, incidence, and risk factors; What Leads to Diabetes?   Diabetes occurs when the body cannot regulate blood sugars. Are the causes for type 1 and type 2 diabetes different? Type 1 and type 2 diabetes have different causes. Yet two factors are important in both. First, you must inherit a predisposition to the disease. Second, something in your environment must trigger diabetes. Genes alone are not enough. One proof of this is identical twins. Identical twins have identical genes. Yet when one twin has type 1 diabetes, the other gets the disease at most only half the time. When one twin has type 2 diabetes, the other's risk is at most 3 in 4.

    Diabetes - Causes, incidence, and risk factors; Type 1 Diabetes Type 1 Diabetes | In most cases of type 1 diabetes, people need to inherit risk factors from both parents. We think these factors must be more common in whites because whites have the highest rate of type 1 diabetes. Because most people who are at risk do not get diabetes, researchers want to find out what the environmental triggers are. One trigger might be related to cold weather. Type 1 diabetes develops more often in winter than summer and is more common in places with cold climates. Another trigger might be viruses. Perhaps a virus that has only mild effects on most people triggers type 1 diabetes in others. Early diet may also play a role. Type 1 diabetes is less common in people who were breastfed and in those who first ate solid foods at later ages.

    In many people, the development of type 1 diabetes seems to take many years. In experiments that followed relatives of people with type 1 diabetes, researchers found that most of those who later got diabetes had certain autoantibodies in their blood for years before. (Antibodies are proteins that destroy bacteria or viruses. Autoantibodies are antibodies 'gone bad,' which attack the body's own tissues.)

    Diabetes - Causes, incidence, and risk factors; Type 2 Diabetes Type 2 Diabetes | Type 2 diabetes has a stronger link to family history and lineage than type 1, although it too depends on environmental factors. Studies of twins have shown that genetics play a very strong role in the development of type 2 diabetes. Lifestyle also influences the development of type 2 diabetes. Obesity tends to run in families, and families tend to have similar eating and exercise habits. If you have a family history of type 2 diabetes, it may be difficult to figure out whether your diabetes is due to lifestyle factors or genetic susceptibility. Most likely it is due to both. However, don’t lose heart. Studies show that it is possible to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes by exercising and losing weight.

Diabetes - Causes, incidence, and risk factors; Are You at Risk for Diabetes? Are You at Risk for Diabetes? A family history and age increases the risk for type 2 diabetes. Read what other risk you have; you may be surprised to find that there are some risk factors for type 2 diabetes that you can change. Are You at Risk for Gestational Diabetes? Learn about risk factors for diabetes in pregnancy.  Visit - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002194/

Many of the signs of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are similar. In both, there is too much glucose in the blood and not enough in the cells of your body. High glucose levels in Type 1 are due to a lack of insulin because the insulin producing cells have been destroyed. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body's cells become resistant to insulin that is being produced. Either way, your cells aren't getting the glucose that they need, and your body lets you know by giving you these signs and symptoms.

Diabetes - Symptoms Symptoms.   The main symptoms of diabetes include significantly increased thirst, needing to urinate more often than usual, fatigue and increased hunger. Additional common symptoms include blurred vision, slow healing of wounds, dry mouth, itchy or burning in the feet. Rapid weight loss is also a common symptom for type 1 diabetes.

Over 6 million people in the U.S. (both adults and children) have undiagnosed diabetes. Diabetes often goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless. Recent studies indicate that the early detection of diabetes symptoms and treatment can decrease the chance of developing the complications of diabetes.  Visit - http://diabetes.about.com/od/symptomsdiagnosis/p/Symptoms.htm - for more.

Type 1 Diabetes

  • Frequent urination

  • Unusual thirst

  • Extreme hunger

  • Unusual weight loss

  • Extreme fatigue and Irritability

Type 2 Diabetes*

  • Any of the type 1 symptoms

  • Frequent infections

  • Blurred vision

  • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal

  • Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet

  • Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections

*NOTE: Often people with type 2 diabetes have no symptoms

I’m worried I may be diabetic, how fast do symptoms develop? | The symptoms of diabetes mellitus may develop extremely quickly (over the course of weeks or even days) in children or adolescents who had previously been exhibiting signs of health. The speed at which type 1 diabetes comes on makes speed in spotting the sign important. However, in adults over the age of 40 the symptoms can appear very gradually, which can make spotting the signs more difficult. Experts advise that you don’t be tempted to let the symptoms be dismissed as down to age or ‘getting on a bit’.  Visit - http://www.diabetes.co.uk/diabetes-symptoms.html

If you have one or more of these diabetes symptoms, see your doctor right away. You can also take this Online Diabetes Risk Test to find out if you are at risk for diabetes.

Diabetes - Resource, Forum: Treating Diabetes with Cannabis?: DiabetesMine: Treating Diabetes with Cannabis?: DiabetesMine: By AmyT on October 26, 2005 | I’m grinning. Can you see me? Via a tip from Simon of Power and Control I’ve learned that cannabis (yep: pot, grass, weed, ganja…) can be used to treat diabetes. But no, really. This is legit! Check out a new research paper from the American Alliance for Medical Cannabis (AAMC). This paper posits that cannabis can have the following benefits for diabetes patients:

  • stabilizing blood sugars (confirmed via “a large body of anecdotal evidence building among diabetes sufferers”)

  • anti-inflammatory action that may help quell some of the arterial inflammation common in diabetes

  • “neuroprotective” effects that help thwart inflammation of nerves and reduce the pain of neuropathy by activating receptors in the body and brain

  • “anti-spasmodic agents” help relieve muscle cramps and the pain of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders

  • acts as a “vasodilator” to help keep blood vessels open and improve circulation

  • contributes to lower blood pressure over time, which is vital for diabetics

  • substituting cannabis butter and oil in foods “benefits cardiac and arterial health in general”

  • it can also be used to make topical creams to relieve neuropathic pain and tingling in hands and feet

  • finally, cannabis helps still diabetic “restless leg syndrom” (RLS), so the patient can sleep better: “it is recommended that patients use a vaporizer or smoked cannabis to aid in falling asleep.”

Now I have no idea how this has been received in the medical community, but that is one heck of a long list of potential health benefits! Where do I sign up for the clinical studies? (wink Simon concludes: “If the stuff wasn’t illegal it would be considered a medical super-miracle given all the problems it treats.” Check them all out at LetFreedomGrow.com.  Visit - http://www.diabetesmine.com/2005/10/treating_diabet.html

Marijuana, known by many names, needs very little introduction; we all know it is a popular recreational drug smoked illegally by millions of people worldwide. Its psychoactive ingredient is delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly called “THC.” Regular marijuana is typically 1-8% THC while hashish, made from the flowering tops of the plant and their resins, can contain up to 10% THC. Other properties of THC give it controversial medicinal properties: appetite stimulation and nausea control.  Visit - http://www.marvistavet.com/html/body_marijuana_toxicity.html - Welcome to The Diabetes Mellitus Information Center for Pets - As common as this disease is for both humans and small animals, a general misunderstanding of this condition is surprisingly lacking in the public. Typically one has heard of this condition, perhaps knows some people afflicted by it and then one day comes to own a pet who loses weight despite an excellent appetite or seems to drink a spectacular amount of water. We have put together this area as a resource for such pet owners and have sought to make it as complete as possible. We welcome suggestions and further questions.

Diabetes - Resource, info: Medical Marijuana - Diabetes Medical Marijuana - Diabetes | Diabetes is a condition wherein the body either produces inadequate amounts of insulin or fails to utilize available insulin properly. An estimated 1 million Americans suffer from Type 1 diabetes, which develops in childhood. Another 15 million suffer from Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult onset diabetes, which develops later in life .[1]

Symptoms generally include an imbalance of blood sugar levels and a high level of sugar excreted through the urine. Initial studies showed that cannabis has no effect on blood sugar levels. A recent test-tube study showed that very high doses of synthetic THC might aggravate diabetes, but that same research also indicates that continued use of cannabis creates a tolerance to the potential aggravation .[2] No human studies have found that cannabis or synthetic cannabinoids contribute to symptoms of diabetes. At the same time, no human studies have been undertaken to prove or disprove the reports of long-term diabetics who claim that cannabis use causes an immediate lowering of abnormally high blood sugar levels .[3] Some diabetics also claim that cannabis helps stabilize blood sugar levels and maintain mental stability, or correct mood swings caused by fluctuating blood sugar levels .[4] Separating the apparent blood sugar response from the anti-anorexic properties of cannabis is currently a matter for further investigation.

Diabetics are frequently instructed to refrain from alcohol use because of its high caloric content. Cannabis may provide a psychologically valuable alternative to alcohol in stress reduction, a major factor in managing the potentially life threatening symptoms of diabetes. Hence, cannabis may function in several ways to reduce and stabilize blood sugar levels for patients suffering from diabetes. However, regardless of mounting anecdotal evidence in medical practice, including medical testimony before a district court in California .[5 ] No scientific papers have been published on the effectiveness of cannabis in treating diabetes.

While cannabis has been used as a replacement for insulin, diabetics are strongly advised to continue their physician’s prescribed treatment plan. ...

The medical literature has very few citations in regard to any direct effect of cannabis on blood sugar levels. These citations are sometimes contradictory. Despite the lack of research, a large body of anecdotal evidence is building amongst diabetic sufferers that medical cannabis may help stabilize blood sugar. One suggested method that may be responsible is the reduction in catecholamines and/or stress related hormones (glucocorticoids) that is caused by cannabis. Many cannabinoids act primarily to inhibit prostaglandins and COX-2, while providing powerful anti-oxidant properties to salvage free radicals, and inhibit macrophage and TNF. All of this means that cannabis is an excellent anti-inflammatory that lacks the side effects of steroids (which diabetics have to avoid), the NSAIDS, and the COX-2 inhibitors like Vioxx. This anti-inflammatory action may help quell some of the arterial inflammation common in diabetes.  Visit - http://www.420magazine.com/forums/medical-marijuana-facts-information/81383-medical-breakthrough-medicinal-marijuana-diabetics.html

Diabetes - Resource, info: Alternative Treatments - Medical Marijuana for Diabetes Medical Marijuana for Diabetes - Alternative Treatments - Diabetes | Here is a copy of a letter -- with the author's name and other identifying information redacted out -- about anecdotal evidence that medical marijuana might help some complications of diabetes. The person who wrote me has a better memory than I do. I don't remember corresponding with him before, but he remembers that when I used marijuana I was addicted to it. It got to where I had to be high all my waking hours. My correspondent is also quite correct in writing that I would not be a good candidate for medical marijuana, except as a last resort. ...

Anyway, I offer this diabetes-related bit of medical marijuana data for your consideration. While it may be potentially helpful for some, people who have addiction problems should avoid it. Myself, I had never liked being overly stoned, and lately not at all.

Diabetes - Resource, info: Medical Marijuana and Diabetes Medical Marijuana and Diabetes | Cannabis and Diabetes Medical Benefits › Diabetes | Despite the ever-growing body of information about marijuana and the health conditions it helps to treat, there is very little scientific data about whether or not the drug offers any benefit to the treatment of diabetes. Within the diabetic population, however, there is a significant amount of anecdotal information suggesting that the use of cannabis might help stabilize blood sugar. This may be because it helps to reduce catecholamines and/or the hormones that cause stress: glucocorticoids. According to the American Alliance for Medical Cannabis, cannabinoids, "…act primarily to inhibit prostaglandins and COX-2, while providing powerful anti-oxidant properties to salvage free radicals, and inhibit macrophage and TNF."

In plain English, this means that marijuana works well as an anti-inflammatory treatment without the side effects of steroids. The latter is important, because diabetics are supposed to avoid steroids. As well, many NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs - things like Tylenol and Aleve) cause liver or kidney issues, which cannabis does not. Since diabetics are prone to arterial inflammation, this property of cannabinoids is of great interest. ... Anecdotal evidence shows that diabetics may benefit from treatment with medical marijuana. ...  Visit - http://www.cannabissearch.com/medical_benefits/diabetes/

Diabetes - Resource, info: Part IV - Treatment with Cannabis Diabetes - Part IV - Treatment with Cannabis | Two other major actions of cannabis can benefit the diabetic. The first is helping to keep blood vessels open and improving circulation. Cannabis is a vasodilator and works well to improve blood flow. The second action is how cannabis can reduce blood pressure over time. While cannabis is not generally thought to be an anti-hypertensive and is no replacement for ACE inhibitors, it does contribute to lower blood pressure which is vital in diabetes management. Finally, cannabis used in food products not only provides long lasting blood levels of key cannabinoids but, in addition, cannabis butter and oil substitute triple bonded fatty acids for the saturated fats normally contained in these essential cooking products. This substitution will benefit cardiac and arterial health in general.

Most diabetics learn very early that maintenance of good blood sugar is most easily achieved when patients or their caregivers cook as opposed to eating fast food or prepared foods. Cooking not only provides superior nutrition necessary to treat diabetes but also is a form of physical therapy for diabetic hands that suffer from neuropathy. Of course, diabetics should take caution with any flames or hot objects. Cannabis may also be used to make topical creams (mixed with aloe vera and/or emu oil) that can be applied directly to hands and feet affected by neuropathic pain and tingling. Night time can be particularly difficult for diabetics. A syndrome known as "restless leg syndrome" (RLS) is common. Cannabis helps still RLS which is otherwise treated with quinine and/or muscle relaxants like Flexaril. For night time it is recommended that patients use a vaporizer or smoked cannabis to aid in falling asleep. If night time hypoglycemia is a problem then a cannabis cookie can be very helpful. Cannabis cookies are great treatment so long as portion control is exercised. ...

Diabetes - Resource, info: Medical Cannabis (Marijuana)  Evaluation & Treatment Cannabis Evaluation | Cannabis Treatment | Medical Marijuana - Cannabis has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of medical and psychological conditions. It has been shown to be both safe and effective with an astonishing range of clinical applications. In the 1930's cannabis was included in twenty-eight prescription medications and had been used safely by thousands of patients.

Diabetes mellitus is caused by a relative or absolute loss of insulin that in turn causes a rise in blood glucose levels. It is fatal if untreated. Diabetes may be treated with medications that can increase insulin production, decrease glucose production and/or increase the efficiency of available insulin. If there is no insulin available then patients must be treated with injections of insulin. Elevated levels of blood glucose along with secondary production of inflammatory proteins lead to destruction or inflammation of the lining of the blood vessels and cardiovascular disease, kidney disease as well as destruction of the retina and eventual blindness. Diabetics also have less resistance to infection.

Research indicates that cannabinoids reduce the inflammatory effects of diabetes and may prevent or delay the onset of the end stage effects of diabetes on the vascular system, the kidneys as well as the retina. In clinical practice, patients better control of their blood sugar. A possible mechanism for this commonly reported effect is cannabis helps patients relax. This in turn lowers circulating levels of catecholamines that raise blood sugar. Once again mush more research including clinical trials are indicated  Visit - http://www.cannabishealing.com/diabetes.php

Investigators reported that 86% of untreated control mice in the study developed diabetes. By contrast, only 30% of CBD-treated mice developed the disease. In a separate experiment, investigators reported that control mice all developed diabetes at a median of 17 weeks (range 15-20 weeks), while a majority (60 percent) of CBD-treated mice remained diabetes-free at 26 weeks.  Visit - http://www.kindgreenbuds.com/medical-marijuana/diabetes-mellitus.html

Diabetes - Resource, info: Diabetic Retinopathy - Total Health Care Clinic (THC) Diabetic Retinopathy | THC - Total Health Care Clinic Quality Medical Cannabis Evaluations Made | A compound found in marijuana won’t make you high but it may help keep your eyes healthy if you’re a diabetic, researchers say. Early studies indicate cannabidiol works as a consummate multi-tasker to protect the eye from growing a plethora of leaky blood vessels, the hallmark of diabetic retinopathy, says Dr. Gregory I. Liou, molecular biologist at the Medical College of Georgia. “We are studying the role of cannabinoid receptors in our body and trying to modulate them so we can defend against diabetic retinopathy,” Dr. Liou says. Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in working-age adults and affects nearly 16 million Americans. High glucose levels resulting from unmanaged diabetes set in motion a cascade ultimately causing the oxygen-deprived retina to grow more blood vessels. Ironically, the leaky surplus of vessels can ultimately destroy vision.  Visit - http://www.thcclinic.com/clinic/?page_id=179

nonah (over year ago): Hi, diabetes type one is very serious condition. I can understand your friend is under a lot of stress because of her situation. However, marijuana is definitely not the answer. She may think that this substance is helping her, but I believe she is wrong. Marijuana is an illegal substance so therefore there are not any valid studies that show it can help with lowering blood glucose level. You have every right to worry about her condition. I think you should try talking to her about her habit and the effects of marijuana smoking. This is a drug that alters person's state of mind. Under the influence of marijuana your friend can even endanger her health, because she might forget to take her insulin injection on time. If she refuses to listen to you, you shouldn't hesitate to talk to her parents. Believe me, it is for her own good. ...

Guest (over year ago}: Actually it is not true that marijuana does not help. It does not alter one's state of mind, nor is it habitual. You need to look at research being done.

I was wondering where it would be legal for me to get my medical cannabis card?

Wil@Ask D’Mine answers: Nowhere. Not yet. Probably not ever. At last count 16 states in the union have some sort of medical marijuana laws on the books, with ten more states moving forward on legislation. They couldn’t be more different from each other in the details of who can prescribe, who can receive, who can sell, and how to buy. But, my young friend, you won’t quality for any of them. ... I couldn’t find pot approved for diabetes treatment anywhere. And frankly, I didn’t expect to, either. Diabetes doesn’t hurt, and most of the conditions covered by medical marijuana laws deal with painful conditions. ...  Visit - http://www.diabetesmine.com/2011/06/ask-dmine-medical-marijuana-going-wheat-free-and-dairy-free.html

I believe that medical marijuana should be legal. >> Original post by TymanO5| Jul 07, 2005 - Ok ive had diabetes for 5 years this coming week and i am 15 years old.

Diabetes - Resource, Blog: Who Uses Medical Marijuana? A Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Patient’s Story Who Uses Medical Marijuana? A Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Patient’s Story - Posted on 12/04/2010 in Medical Marijuana Patient Stories | People suffering with diabetic peripheral neuropathy are often prescribed a laundry list of medications, from tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), and countless narcotic pain medications. But many patients find that the most effective drug of them all is medical marijuana. Just as Dave a 58-year-old Southern California resident who is living with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is a serious medical condition in which diabetes causes nerve damage in the arms, hands, legs and feet. For the most part, Dave doesn’t have much feeling from his thighs to his toes. However, his nerve endings cause excruciating pain.

“It feels like I’m walking on broken glass or a 100 degree sidewalk,” he explained. Because of the pain, Dave is prescribed 160 Vicodin and Percoset every month. But he turned to medical marijuana, he explained, “when the side effects of pharmaceuticals made my life irregular, dismal and scary.” Dave was fearful especially of addiction to the pain meds. Now, he uses medical marijuana with a vaporizer for the pain and has seen tremendous results.  Visit - https://www.marijuanadoctors.com/blog/medical-marijuana-patients/who-uses-medical-marijuana-a-diabetic-peripheral-neuropathy-patient-s-story

Anyway, I emailed you a number of years ago, and I appreciate your replies. I met someone who had type 2 diabetes here when I we were attending an informational meeting about my state’s new medical marijuana laws. I was opposed to using it, at least for recreational use, which can become psychologically addicting, as you know. But my wife suffers from ruptured discs that causes intense pain, and I was looking into it for her sake. Years ago each of us had used/abused marijuana before giving it up. ...

course, even if you are more disciplined than me and your diabetes is out of control, I am not recommending that you rush right out to your local medical marijuana dispensary or start growing weed in your back yard.

Diabetes - Resource, Blog: Treating Diabetes, Diabetic Neuropathy and Gastroparesis with Marijauna (Cannabis) Treating Diabetes, Diabetic Neuropathy and Gastroparesis with Marijauna (Cannabis) - October 21, 2009 | Just yesterday I had a 39 year old male with diabetes come into my office for a cannabis evaluation with the complaint of gastroparesis as a result of his diabetes. Gastroparesis is also called delayed gastric emptying and is a disorder in which the stomach takes too long to empty its contents into the small intestine. It is a result when the nerves that control the stomach or damaged or stop working. When blood sugars remain high for long periods of time the nerves themselves can be damaged. In this case it is the Vagus nerve which controls the flow of food throughout the digestive tract. His symptoms were heartburn, nausea and vomiting, abdominal bloating and cramping and lack of appetite.

The main treatment to alleviate symptoms is to get blood sugar levels normalized so that the nerves and arteries can repair themselves. However this does not cure the gastroparesis and many times symptoms remain for long periods of time. In this case this patient has been symptomatic for the past 10 years. In addition to getting his blood sugars under control, his primary care physician has prescribed typical medications for his reflux (protonix) , medications to control his nausea and also a sleeping pill to help him sleep at night.... His friend happened to be a medical cannabis patient ... ...

Cheers for this guys, I myself am a heavy Cannabis user and a type 1 diabetic. I have found that since ive been smoking cannabis regualarly it has helped me significantly in controling my blood sugar and in general i just feel better, the “chronic” has helped me become the person ive always wanted to be. It has helped me concentrate more and really explore the depths of my mind, ive conjoured up so many interesting and healthhy ideas. ive joined the gym, something i really didnt consider when i wasnt smoking. its helped me dramiatically helped me with my artistic side, as i say, “get my creative times on”. also i think the most important is that since ive been smoking, i can really just chill with my mates, helped me relax if im stressed, and really give me goals in life. ...

Diabetes - Resource, Blog: Medical Marijuana for Chronic Pain; More and more states are permitting medical marijuana to help people living with chronic pain, but is it safe? Medical Marijuana for Chronic Pain | More and more states are permitting medical marijuana to help people living with chronic pain, but is it safe? - By Sara Calabro (Apr 4, 2011), Medically reviewed by Pat F. Bass III, MD, MPH | The debilitating effects of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes are understandably front and center. Yet while those conditions can greatly decrease a person’s quality of life, the reality is that chronic pain afflicts more people than all three of these diseases combined. Roughly 76 million Americans are living with chronic pain. There are many traditional options to manage pain, from prescription drugs to occupational therapy. Now, one formerly alternative option for controlling chronic pain is becoming mainstream. As of April 2011, medical marijuana — often referred to as cannabis, the actual herb from which marijuana is made — is legal in Washington, DC, and a growing list of states. And that list is likely to get even longer in light of the federal government’s most recent announcement that it will not prosecute users or producers of medical marijuana in states that allow it for medical use.

Diabetes - Resource, News: Marijuana Smoking Associated with 66% Decrease in Diabetes Risk Marijuana Smoking Associated with 66% Decrease in Diabetes Risk - By: BRUCE JANCIN, Internal Medicine News Digital Network | DENVER – Marijuana use may be associated with a markedly decreased risk of diabetes. A provocative new analysis of data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III) indicates marijuana users had 66% lower odds of having diabetes after adjustment for numerous potential confounding factors, Dr. Magda Shaheen reported at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association. This robust observed benefit has a biologically plausible mechanism, she noted.  Visit - http://www.internalmedicinenews.com/single-view/marijuana-smoking-associated-with-66-decrease-in-diabetes-risk/40de87806e.html

Diabetes - Resource, News: An Important Endorsement For Medicinal Marijuana - Defeat Diabetes Foundation Defeat Diabetes Foundation -- An Important Endorsement For Medicinal Marijuana - By Daniel H. Rasolt, Posted: Tuesday, February 26, 2008 | (Defeat Diabetes® News) -- The American College of Physicians (ACP) has issued an endorsement for marijuana use for medicinal purposes for certain conditions, and for further research into its potential for other medical ailments. The endorsement, which comes in the form of a 13 page statement documenting the history of medicinal marijuana use, the current understanding of it, and the obstacles being faced in developing the subject further. Two of the most widely accepted and studied uses for medicinal marijuana are for cancer patients experiencing nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy, and for AIDS patients suffering from extreme weight loss. It is believed by the ACP that medicinal marijuana use may extend to many other conditions as well, but for various reasons the research is not there to conclusively support the position. ...

"Even More Science Suggesting That Cannabinoids May Halt Diabetes - by Paul Armentano, NORML | Preclinical study data published online in the scientific journal Nutrition & Diabetes reports that tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) — a naturally occurring analogue of THC — possesses positive metabolic effects in animal models of obesity. British researchers assessed the effects of THCV administration on dietary- induced and genetically modified obese mice. Authors reported that although THCV administration did not significantly affect food intake or body weight gain in any of the models, it did produce several metabolically beneficial effects, including reduced glucose intolerance, improved glucose tolerance, improved liver triglyceride levels, and increased insulin sensitivity. Researchers concluded: “Based on these data, it can be suggested that THCV may be useful for the treatment of the metabolic syndrome and/or type 2 diabetes (adult onset diabetes), either alone or in combination with existing treatments. Given the reported benefits of another non-THC cannabinoid, CBD in type 1 diabetes, a CBD/THCV combination may be beneficial for different types of diabetes mellitus.” Visit - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3671751/ "
