Dear WebMD member,
Trying to choose the right exercise for you? Sure, the old standbys are
fine, but if you want to try something different, check out this list
of new fitness trends.
Eye Screen, You Screen
Some experts say people with type 2 diabetes should be screened annually
for a common eye disease known as diabetic retinopathy. But others disagree.
Do you know why?
Young Diabetics at Risk
The risk of stroke is two and a half times higher in people with diabetes
-- and it is even higher in certain diabetics. Learn how your age -- and
even your sex -- can affect your risk of death by stroke.

Diabetes Fact vs. Diabetes Fiction
Managing diabetes presents many challenges -- from eating the right foods
to getting insulin -- but perhaps the biggest one of all is simply
separating the facts from the misconceptions. Lucky for you, diabetes expert
S. Sethu Reddy, MD, is here to set the record straight.
Disabled, But Still Sexy
Diabetes can sometimes lead to serious disability: blindness, loss of
limbs, nerve damage. But contrary to what many might think, those problems
don't have to spell an end to your sex life. Just follow these creative
tips for focusing on your ability -- not your disability -- in the bedroom.
Is It Time to Enroll in a Clinical Trial?
Clinical trials can often be a source of inspiration for those suffering
with chronic illnesses. WebMD can now help you find a program that's
dedicated to battling diabetes with both matching and listing services
to help you find the trial that's best suited to your needs.
