I just love "Diabetic Living" magazine which I first picked up at my local library with the back issues and was so impressed that I subscribe to it. For copyright reasons I don't share the articles but there should be nothing wrong with at least sharing some of the highlights of the articles for you to see what's in each issue. In Fall 2010 look for the following:
New Diabetic Diagnostic Criteria… The American Diabetes Association announced new guidelines for diagnosis of diabetes including an a1c greater than or equal to 6.5%. The fasting glucose reading of greater than 126 mg/dl, after 2 hours (or random test) to be greater than 200. I believe these are more liberal figures than past guidelines for diabetics.
Good Morning Stretches… the issue features some bed and chair exercises for at home stretching.
How to Lower Morning Highs… this article offers tips on lowering the morning highs and causes for it.
Could Your Type 2 Diagnosis Be Wrong? this article addresses latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) and what to do if you are actually a type 1 with a type 2 diagnosis.

Breakfast to Go … various build a meal ideas for quick and easy breakfasts
Store Brand Savings … tips on using Walmart and Target house brands for cheaper and healthy alternatives to name brand good food options with recommendations.
Sweet To The Core … apple recipes Golden Rice Pudding w/ 23 g carbs, Apple Strudel w/ 21g carbs, and a Caramel Crunch Apple Crisp recipe that I wish were scratch n stiff cuz it looks so good!
All in all this issues features alot of amazing sounding (and looking) recipes that are diabetic friendly.
