The effectiveness of Ayurvedic medicine in treating diabetes is well documented. The efficacy of herbs widely recommended in Ayurvedic texts for normalizing the blood sugar level has been validated in several clinical trials. In Ayurveda, diabetes mellitus is known as Madhu meha. Owing to the adverse effect of high blood sugar on nearly every vital organ of the body, diabetes is referred to as ?maharoga? or the major disease in Ayurveda.Ayurvedic medicine for diabetes contain herbs that help to lower the blood sugar level by regulating metabolism of carbohydrates, regulating sugar absorption, stimulating insulin secretion and improving sensitivity to the hormone insulin. Gymnema Sylvestre (Gurmar) Gymnema sylvestre is an effective hypoglycemic component in Ayurvedic medicines for diabetes. The common name of the herb is Gurmar, which means the sugar crusher. The efficacy of Gymnema sylvestre leaves in reducing the blood sugar level has been demonstrated in experimental and clinical studies. Treatment with the herb helps to lower the fasting blood sugar level. By assisting regeneration of the residual pancreatic beta cells, it reduces dependence on insulin medications. Coccinia Indica Coccinia indica is a powerful anti-diabetic agent. By regulating breakdown of starch, it helps to prevent sudden surge of blood sugar after consuming carbohydrates. It could also protect the vital organs from the adverse effect of high blood sugar level.

I am suffering from sugar problem. Please suggest me. How can I solve that problem?
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is necessary to initiate appropriate treatment with proper drugs, then take restricted diet, avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made from maida. Increase intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Plus do regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day. If you are looking for online help may come with following details: Fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, weight, height, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise, then I will be able to guide specifically. It is better if you come in a private conversation (paid consultation), then it is possible to even prescribe necessary medication. Thanks.

Hi your hba1c% looks fairly good, it means blood sugar is in good control. However, honey in diabetes is not advisable, particularly if the quantity is more. A few ml is fine. You have not mentioned what is the quantity advised. Your bmi 29.96 kgs/m2 is closer to be grade 1 obesity. Hence, weight reduction is a must. I have no idea about honey and vinegar helping in weight reduction, but proper dietary restriction, taking exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight (67 kgs), plus regular exercise of at least 1 hour a day, cutting down high carb diet will be more beneficial. Once your weight goes down, diabetes control will be much better. Thanks for the question.

Hello, we have self made specialised medicine prepared for complete management of thyroid. It includes correction of weight, stopping hair fall and alleviating other symptoms such as weakness, lethargy, increased sleep, infertility etc. This is how this treatment minimizes dependence on artificial hormones and stimulates thyroid gland to produce it's own natural hormone. At the same time, this treatment increases metabolic rate thereby helping maintain good weight over long term. Kindly let me know your age, height, weight and other symptoms if any. This information is vital so as to arrive at perfect prescription.
