Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder in which the body is unable to make proper use of glucose resulting in hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and glycosuria (sugar in urine).

According to Ayurveda There are 20 forms of Diabetes (Prameha): 4 are due to Vata, 6 result from Pitta, and 10 are caused by Kapha. But Diabetes (Prameha) is mainly kapha doshaja disease.

All forms of diabetes not treated to eventually develop into Madhumeha (Diabetes Melitus).

Diabetes is termed as SILENT KILLER and recently evidence of cases of “Insulin resistance” and the occurrence of side effects from prolonged administration of conventional drugs have triggered the search for safe and effective alternatives.

Yashcha kinchith vidhiranyepi sleshma medho moothra samjananam sa sarva: nidana vishesha:
The main cause of prameha (diabetes) is lack of exercise and consumption of excess food having ushna, snigdha and gurunature. Foods that increase kapha, medhas and mootra are the major factors for prameha.

Risks associated with Diabetes

If not treated diabetes can lead to glaucoma, cataract and retinopathy. Since healing does not take place quickly there is a risk of gangrene and foot problems. Skin is more susceptible to infection and heart function is also affected leading to cardiovascular complications. Kidneys are affected; stomach functions reduce, nerve damage can happen.
