Ayurvedic Treatment For Diabetes

Ayurvedic Treatment for Diabetes mainly focuses on correcting the lifestyle through changes in diet and physical activity. Diabetes is one of the most common lifestyle disorders that affect a large section of population globally. It is a chronic illness that requires a round the clock attention and also a large degree of self-management. Diabetes is caused when the body is not able to break down the glucose into energy. As a result the body shows high levels of blood glucose, a condition known in medical terms as hyperglycemia.

What Are The Types Of Diabetes?

There are three main types of Diabetes mellitus:
1. Type 1 DM results from the body’s failure to produce enough insulin. This form was previously referred to as “insulin-dependent Diabetes mellitus” (IDDM) or “juvenile diabetes”. The cause is unknown.
2. Type 2 DM begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to respond to insulin properly. As the disease progresses a lack of insulin may also develop. This form was previously referred to as “non insulin-dependent Diabetes mellitus” (NIDDM) or “adult-onset diabetes”. Type 2 Diabetes is the most common type of Diabetes and is mainly caused due to unhealthy lifestyle.
3. Gestational Diabetes is the third form and occurs when pregnant women without a previous history of Diabetes develop a high blood glucose level.

What Are The Common Symptoms Of Diabetes?

A majority of people with Diabetes do not get early diagnosis of Diabetes due to lack of awareness and recognition of the symptoms. Here are the common symptoms of diabetes,

  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Increased hunger
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Blurred vision
  • Slow healing sores

Symptoms may develop rapidly (weeks or months) in type 1 diabetes, while they usually develop much more slowly and may be subtle or absent in type 2 Diabetes. Several other signs and symptoms can mark the onset of diabetes, although they are not specific to the disease and include vision, headache, fatigue, slow healing of cuts, and itchy skin. Prolonged high blood glucose can cause glucose absorption in the lens of the eye, which leads to changes in its shape, resulting in vision changes. A number of skin rashes that can occur in Diabetes are collectively known as diabetic dermadromes.

What is the Etiology Of Diabetes As Per Ayurveda?

Diabetes in Ayurveda is called as Prameha, which means excessive urination. The ancient Ayurvedic texts have elaboratively classified the disease Prameha on the basis of dosha dominance as Kaphaj, Pittaj & Vataj. According to Ayurveda type 1 Diabetes is similar to Vataja prameha that is hereditary and has no cure whereas type 2 Diabetes is similar to kaphaja prameha, which is acquired due to unhealthy lifestyle and is curable. The third type of Diabetes known as Gestational Diabetes is described in the diseases of Garbhini as Garbhini Prameha. As per Ayurveda theories intake of sweets, bakery products, lack of exercise & sedentary lifestyle can increase the risk of Diabetes.
