What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is characterized by high blood sugar levels, increased hunger and thirst and frequent urination. It is of two types; Diabetes Insipidus and Diabetes Mellitus (Type-I and Type-II).
Type-1 Diabetes is also known as insulin-dependent diabetes or juvenile diabetes. This means your body cannot produce enough insulin to metabolize starch and sugar from your food into an energy source due to the lack of the pancreatic hormone insulin. It is more prevalent among young adults and children.
In case of Type-2 Diabetes, your body produces insulin but the cells are not able to utilize it well. Hence this condition is termed as insulin resistance. Thus, regular supplementation of insulin is not necessary. Diabetes mellitus is mainly a chronic disease.
How does Homeopathy treat Diabetes?
Conventional medicines employ the use of insulin for treating diabetes. Since this is precisely a replacement therapy, the disease turns into something life-long. Homeopathy focuses on the functioning of your pancreas for efficient and adequate insulin production. Homeopathic medicines help in treating loss of flesh or a feeling of weakness caused as a result of Diabetes Mellitus. People suffering from increased urination, lack of appetite, as well as dryness of mouth and increased thirst also benefit from Homeopathy. It is a great remedy for people with weakened vision due to diabetes. It aids in lowering the blood sugar levels and treats poor memory, kidney damage, numbness of feet and hands, skin ulcers, constipation and weight loss in diabetic patients.

In 2012 I gained weight (61 kg) as I always been in between 50 to 54 kg. Doctor told me my tsh level is 2.6 so I am having hypothyroid & prescribed me to take thyronorm 50 mcg daily. I was taking regularly but it does not loose my weight infact I gained more weight. Like my face, arms,belly fat, thighs, back was chubby or swollen types and with hair falling. In march 2016 I was around 67 kg. I got married in May 2016 since then I have stopped taking thyronorm. As my married life is not going good I have lot of tension, my living place has changed, eating habits changed. Now I look a bit slim. All my chubby parts are lean now. Yesterday checked my weight it was 55 kg not even 61. But I havnt checked my thyroid status yet. I want to know if someone stop taking thyronorm it make you slim? I do not have any other health issues.
If I am on some other medications such as drugs for diabetes, hypertension, etc.; do I have to stop them while on homeopathy?
High is our spirit when it comes to having chatpata khaana, cold drinks, ice creams and fast food. How excited are we in going for tests regularly once we feel diabetes creeping into our system or when we have been diagnosed of diabetes?
Going for diabetes-related check-ups is something most of us don’t take seriously. Unfortunately, most of us don’t realize the negative impact of diabetes on our body including the brain, kidneys, heart, legs and eyes. High levels of blood sugar can lead to kidney damage, blurred vision and blindness, high cholesterol and heart disease, poor blood circulation in feet and legs causing amputation in severe cases. Before it starts to cause more harm to you, it is time to go for a couple of routine tests, starting today.
Test 1 – Hemoglobin A1c
Many diabetics miss out on this one!
Getting your fasting and postprandial blood sugar levels are simply not enough.
HbA1c measures our average blood sugar of the previous three months. This is done in order to see if the blood sugar has stayed within the target and permissible range.
If the curious you want to know more about HbA1c, then here we go:
The red blood cells in our body have haemoglobin which enables the cells to facilitate oxygen in the tissues. As the cell ages, glucose molecules stick to it called ‘glycation’ in medical terms. Higher glycated haemoglobin means higher glucose levels in the blood which means higher HbA1c reading. Though normal Hb1c for non-diabetics is 4% to 5%, poorly controlled diabetes has HbA1c value of 7%. If HbA1C exceeds 8%, it means blood sugar has gone out of control.
Test 2 – Dilated Eye
People suffering from diabetes need to consult their ophthalmologist for a dilated eye exam. It’s a test in which the pupils are widened by putting eye drops so as to check any signs of blindness.
High blood sugar levels as a result of diabetes can damage the blood vessels in the retina. If not treated on time, the blood vessels can bleed leading to blurred vision and damaging the retina thereby leading to blindness in the longer run. Therefore, it’s advisable for patients suffering from Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes to go for a proper eye examination once a year. This will help in identifying eye problems and any malfunctioning in eyesight or vision that is related to diabetes. The more the delay in eye check-ups, the more are the chances of developing ocular problems.
Test 3 – Foot Examination
Patients suffering from diabetes often complain of numbness and decreased blood circulation in foot. Often they are not able to see if their foot gets injured. Even if an infection occurs, healing is slow in diabetics increasing the risk of gangrene. If ignored, the complications can lead to foot amputation.
From time to time keep checking your feet for sores and infections, especially between the toes. If you notice any ulcers, blisters, skin breakouts or redness happening, consult your doctor right away.
Test 4 – Blood Lipids/ Cholesterol Check
This test is all about lipid profile screening that should be done once a year. It checks your HDL (good cholesterol), LDL (bad cholesterol) as well as triglyceride levels. Ideally, your LDL cholesterol should be less than 100. However, if you are a patient suffering from heart disease, your doctor may advise you a further lower LDL figure.
Test 5 – Kidney function
Make it a point to get an annual urine test done. This will check out the protein levels in your body. Also make sure to get a blood test done annually to check out the creatinine level. Both these tests help in analysing the performance of your kidneys.
Test 6 – Blood Pressure
From time to time, get your blood pressure checked. As a diabetic, the goal should be to get 125/75. In case you are a healthy individual without diabetes, your blood pressure should be less than 130/80.
Now that you have got a fair knowledge of the lab tests that need to be done in case you have diabetes, go ahead and get them done. Timely screening of diabetes is the first thing you need to go for.
