In Ayurveda, Diabetes is known as ‘Madhumey’. Excess intake of sweets, carbohydrates and lack of exercise are the main reasons behind Diabetic problems. If Diabetes is left untreated, it will lead to severe damage to kidneys, eyes and central nervous system. If the Diabetes is in its initial stage, it can be controlled through diet and lifestyle along with herbal medicines. Avoiding excess intake of sweets, regular exercise and yoga can help to control blood sugar level to an extent.
Patients who are suffering chronic diabetes need extra care and treatment. In this stage, the treatment focuses on reducing dosage of insulin that manages the blood sugar level and keeping the metabolism rate high. Medicinal herbs and rasayanas are also a part of the treatment. In the advanced stage of Diabetes, the body organs will be affected. In this stage the overall quality of life needs to be improved through rasayana treatment, diet and lifestyle modification.
