Diabetes - How Unani Medicines Can Help Treat It?

Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Unani Specialist, Gaya
Diabetes - How Unani Medicines Can Help Treat It?

Diabetes is the new-age epidemic. With changing lifestyles, it is affecting the younger age group, and because diabetes touches all body systems, the complications are too many and earlier the disease onset, more the complications.

Unani medicine system originated in Greece and believes the body has 4 body fluids. The body naturally maintains a balance between these to ensure overall good health. This is known as body’s self-preservation mechanism. According to Unani, diseases are also a natural part of the body’s processes, and the symptoms manifested depend on the disease. Diabetes is a result of excessive sugar levels in the body, and according to Unani is caused by very high temperament of the kidneys, and therefore eliminate water as it is taken into the body.

Causes: According to Unani, diabetes is a result of:

  1. Stress
  2. Anxiety
  3. Overeating
  4. Sedentary lifestyle
  5. Alcohol abuse

Diabetes is known in the Unani system as Ziabetes or Dolab and known as Ziabetes Shakri (shakri for sugar).

Types:

  1. When the urination and thirst frequency is higher, it is Ziabetes Haar
  2. When the urination and thirst frequency is lower, it is Ziabetes Barid
  3. Based on the presence or absence of sugar in the urine, Ziabetes shakri and Ziabetes sada respectively.

Symptoms of diabetes include:

  1. Increased thirst
  2. Increased urination
  3. Increased appetite

Diabetes also predisposes a person to chronic heart disease, obesity, high cholesterol levels, kidney problems, foot problems, eye problems, nervous system issues, etc.

Some of the common remedies used for managing diabetes in Unani are listed below. None of these should be taken on your own, as diabetes is a complex medical condition and needs thorough assessment before beginning medication.

  1. Jamun: This is used in multiple ways – the seeds can be dried and powdered and mixed with lukewarm water to make a morning drink. Alternately, the leaves can be chewed for good benefit. The fresh fruit also can be consumed for good sugar control
  2. Neem: Again, the tender bark can be chewed to control sugar. The leaves can be chewed or used to make a juice which can be consumed in the morning to purify blood and control sugar levels.
  3. Karela Bark: Bitter gourd is one of the best known natural anti-diabetic agents. The juice can be consumed 2 to 3 times a day, and it has a chemical which helps control sugar levels.
  4. Bel leaves: This can be boiled in water, and the mixture strained and consumed through the day.

Other remedies include cotton seeds, binola berry, black cumin, and gurmar booti. Unani also believes diabetes can be prevented with lifestyle changing including diet and exercise and avoiding alcohol and smoking in excess. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

You may also start with urea 30.1-2 drops in luke warm water 4 times a day for immediate relief and get another test done after 5 days if uric acid levels comes down well and good else get ultrasonography done for kidneys suspecting stones or deterioration. Also drink 6-8liters of water everyday if you don't have swelling all over.

Lybrate-user, the levels mentioned are too high, shows totally uncontrolled diabetes. If you are on treatment, it is clear the current treatment is not helpful or grossly inadequate. Needs immediate improvement. Plus I see that you are having a bmi of 34.09 kgs/m2, showing grade 1 obesity. This also contributes to increased blood sugar. So there needs to be - efforts to reduce weight, additional treatment and proper diet control and exercise. With this multi pronged approach we will be able to bring situation under control. Thanks for the question.

Dear Doctor, It has been 3.6 year to our marriage and we are trying for a baby since last two year and from last eight month we are consulting with Gyno, in our initial test my wife is diagnosed with hypothyroid (TSH Level 5.255) so our doctor prescribed us Thyronorm 12.5 mgc. Again after 3 month we did TSH test and this time TSH level has been decreased to 4.861. Meanwhile she asked us for several test which includes: Semen Analysis, follicular studies and HSG however she never asked for FSG test. Each of these test are normal. After 6 month we again did TSH test and this time TSH level has been increased to 7.442. After that, I have taken consultation from other doctor and she asked us to do AMH and TB Gold test. Here my concern is no one is giving importance to TSH level and asking for different test however as per my research TSH level should be in 1 to 2 range to get pregnant successfully. So, isn't doctor should focus on thyroid treatment before going for other test. It would be very helpful for us if you can provide us your valuable comments on this. Also could you please suggest correct does of Thyronorm.

Mr. lybrate-user, It is possible that the doctors want to first confirm if any of the other hormonal deficiency are existing, which may be a hinderance in getting pregnant. I do agree with your observation that TSH value should have been looked at by at least one of those doctors. It is essential to bring it <2 to get conception. Plus American Thyroid Association recommends levels in the range of 0.1 to 2 mU/L before conception and similar values to be maintained during pregnancy so as to ensure proper fetal brain development in first 3 to 4 weeks and later part of pregnancy for proper growth. Thanks.

She is suffering from uric acid and having swelling on feet as well as fingers what's the solution for this problem?
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.

Dear lybrate-user, Your life history that you briefly mentioned is interesting. I can understand the frustrations in life due which you try to be everywhere, do everything at the cost of your health and eventually look for competitive appreciation which in your case is not favored. But don't worry! Life is all about learning and teaching. These failures help you to win the race for tomorrow. This is the time you prioritize what you are looking for. This is the time for you to focus on what you like the most and do that. This is the time for you to loudly express your feelings and smile till your ears. I can help you break the inhibitions which are preventing you from doing this. This will not be as simple as we say it, but IT IS POSSIBLE. The only thing I expect from you is toTRUST me.

Thyroid swellings usually do not respond to medications. You need to undergo proper evaluation of thyroid which includes ultrasound, fnac, and thyroid function test.

I was prescribed Insulin Nova Rapid 18-0-0 in a day, now my medical specialist not recommended that and prescribed Jardiance-10 mg (Empagiflozhin Tablets). I have few insulin injection cartridges left with me, shall I continue insulin (till all insulin cartridges over) along with Jardiance. Is it correct? Or will it have some side effect? Or shall follow medical specialist advice? Two. When I urinate, white foam is seen? What is the symptom? Some make me fear that kidney is affected, and some say protein is higher side. What is your opinion and advice?

Either you take nova rapid or jardiance because both decreases blood sugar. Yes with nova rapid sugar was not controlled then you can take both simultaneouly. No problem. We can decrease dose of nova rapid accordingly. Regarding foam in urine better you go for urine complete analysis. Then tell the reports. Most probably phosphates are passing in urine. You can ask on line.

Diabetesand triglycerideslevel control is governed by following the right diabetic diet. What to eat and what not to eat is important for diabetes control and diabetes cure or diabetes reversal. Few tips. - one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes. - drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach. - intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes. Natural remedies for diabetics. Tender guava leaf juice aloe vera green tea cinnamon black jamun seed extract methi seed powder drumstick leaf powder flaxseed powder amla neem flower tea multi grains wheat germ and bran lemon grass wheat grass quinoa are some of the foods which definitely control diabetes and triglycerides level. Take personalised dietary expert advice. Thank you.

Dear . let me clarify you that diabetes is a silent killer if not taken precautions. Why the hell are you taking sweets. You are just 21 and you have a life ahead. 3 times insulin itself is 2 much. Haven't you tried medicine. Brother life is precious. Don't play with yourself.

Hello, at the age of 50 with abnormal bleeding pattern one has to rule out precancerous or cancerous conditions. Surgery would be different if there is any such suspicion. So to rule that out it is always better to get endometrial biopsy and papsmear before a major surgery. It is a very simple procedure, need not worry about it. Or there is sn office procedure done as outpatient itself which is further simpler. All the best.

Mr tapash kumar, try and increase fiber content in your diet by consuming more salads, flax seeds (25 g, roasted) or fenugreek seeds (roasted or powdered). Fruits which are permitted like papaya, apple (with skin), pear and guava. Drink enough water. Normally these measures help in overcoming constipation. If nothing works then the laxatives which you are already taking.

No instant medication as you think is there and controlling diabetes is long term procedure. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

I am 40 years old and my morning fasting blood sugar reading ranges between 129 to 139 for the last 4 months. I didn't take any medicine yet. My blood uric acid levels are also high (almost 9), even when I am a pure vegetarian (not even eggs) for the last 15 years. I tried a bit of homeopathy medicine for a couple of months about 3 months before. Not much of a change. It brought down the fasting sugar reading from 139 to 129 and I discontinued that medicine. I don't take any sugar for tea or coffee. I have cut down on my sweets intake and also have changed to organic rice with brown husks and sometime to millet like horsetail millet. I dont drink alcohol. I drink only green tea. I also have ran a half marathon of 21 kms in less than three hours about 20 days ago. I feel tired after lunch and feel like my head is spinning and want to lied down and sleep and when I wake up after an hour, my head feels very heavy. My urine is always yellow (from slight to dark yellow. I married at the age of 38 and have a son of 1 year old. My Mom, my Sister, and my paternal Grandmother all have had diabetes. Is there any way that this sugar reading could be brought down to 100 by mere lifestyle changes and not by medicine. Has it occurred to anyone before. If you need any more information pertaining to my question please provide me with rightful answer Thank you.

You are already taking a diabetic diet and also doing exercises regularly which is good for your health. Now whether should we start with medication will depend on hba1c reading every three months.
