Ayurvedic Remedies to help you Combat Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition wherein, the level of sugar in your blood increases significantly. This happens when the sugar you consume from foods is not efficiently processed by the body thus, a rise in the level of your blood sugar. An excess concentration of sugar in the blood can make you prone to various health complications.

Symptoms

The symptoms of diabetes include frequent urge to urinate, increased thirst, increased hunger and rapid weight loss, combined with fatigue and irritability. Diabetes can also cause problems in the eyes, such as blurred vision as well as make you prone to cataracts and even glaucoma (in very rare cases). With diabetes, any injury or body sore tends to take a lot of time to heal.

Causes     

Diabetes is a disorder that occurs due to impaired insulin functioning. Insulin is a hormone that is produced by pancreas, which is located right below the stomach. Diabetes, when occurs as a result of insufficient production of insulin by the pancreas, is known as Type 1 Diabetes. In this type, the immune cells in the body attack the cells in the pancreas, which produce insulin thus, discouraging insulin secretion.

Another kind is the Type 2 diabetes, which occurs when the cells in the body become insulin resistant. Most cases of diabetes are of this particular type, as one of the major reasons behind this is following an erratic lifestyle devoid of healthy habits.  

Gestational diabetes is the third type, although it isn’t very common. During pregnancy, the various hormones that are secreted in the body can play spoilsport with the functioning of the pancreas, thus the production of insulin. This leads to a drastic rise in blood sugar levels.

How to treat it with Ayurvedic remedies

  1. Eat healthy: Eating healthy assumes the maximum importance; you need to eat healthy in order to control diabetes effectively. Include plenty of fruits and vegetables in the diet, but make sure to pick foods that contain little sugar. Fruits such as bananas and grapes are not the best options for a diabetic. Rather, one should consider cucumber and bitter gourd in such circumstances.

  2. Exercise regularly: Regular exercise can keep your body weight at optimal level, which goes a long way in preventing and controlling symptoms of diabetes. Besides being good for your heart, cardiovascular exercises such as running bring down the excess glucose levels in the blood.

  3. Limit stress: Stress is very harmful for the body as it reduces your immunity against diseases and infections. Leading a stressful life can make you prone to a variety of disorders, diabetes being one of them. Relaxation techniques such as meditation and yoga can help one deal with stress effectively. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Random blood sugar 180 mg per cent is higher than normal. You must have been put on some anti glycaemic agent and despite that the level is not normal. Ensure that your diet does not have direct sugar and carbo rich food like potatoes, rice, grapes, mangoes, jaggery etc. As for fruits you may eat 1 fruit of your choice ( 1 in number like 1 orange, 1 apple, 1 banana etc). Keep doing walking exercises within physiological kimits as advised by the hospital post operatively. Avoid stress, it adds to your sugar level through stress hormones.

Day by day i'm losing my weight I want to gain my weight. And I am a diabetes patient please suggests me.?
Diabetes causes weight loss when it is uncontrolled. Simply stated, weight can be preserved by controlling sugars to the optimum level, provided you have no other problem apart from diabetes which can attribute to this weight loss. So first check your blood for sugar levels and urine for sugar loss. You can't fill a vessel with water if its got a hole at the base.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week.

You have to control diabetes first and then have to get the infection checked as we may have to think of phimosis or balanitis.

My age is 45 years I am suffering from diabetes please give some suggestion for food plan.
You are a young diabetic. For control of diabetes a three prong strategy is used, that medicine, exercise and diet. I hope you are taking medicine under supervision of a diabetologist. You must do at least one hour of physical exercise every day, it should be combination of walking/ jogging, yoga, and weight training. Diet, the major portion of your diet must be salads and fruits. You must have large quantities of salad (cucumber, radish, little carrot, onion, tomato, raw broccoli, raw cauliflower, mushroom, papaya etc.). Also there every day you must eat adequate amount of protein, egg white, fish and chicken are good for you. Avoid meat as much as possible. Cut down on roti and rice as much as possible. Make salads and protein major part of your diet.

Mr. Lybrate-user, when a person has diabetes, he/she has to take proper medicine to control blood sugar first. Then exercise and restricted diet are also equally important in helping better blood sugar control. Only exercise will not be able to reduce blood sugar. Only treatment available for diabetes is either oral anti diabetic drugs (modern medicine) or insulin injection. Other than these, there is no way to control diabetes.
