Diabetes - How Ayurveda Can Treat It?

Diabetes is a condition that cannot be completely cured. It can be regulated and brought under control. Once you maintain your usual level of diabetes within the prescribed normal amount, you can be referred to be as non-diabetic. Surging levels of diabetes over a long span of time might negatively affect some organs in your body and also deteriorate your immune powers. Here is where the role of Ayurvedic medicines becomes imperative. One of the most potent and competitive ways of to deal with diabetes and bring it under control, while deleting the chances of any side effects is with the use of Ayurvedic medicines and therapy.

Symptoms of Diabetes:
There is a long list of common symptoms related to diabetes. Some of the most common symptoms out of the lot are-

  1. Disproportionate and varied levels of thirst,
  2. Frequent and uncontrollable urge for urination,
  3. Sudden hunger sprang,
  4. Sudden weight loss for some,
  5. Sudden weight loss for some,
  6. Thinning hands and legs,
  7. A constant feeling of irritation,
  8. An increased level of fatigue,
  9. Blurring vision,
  10. Itchy and spotty skin,
  11. Slow healing of scratches and cuts,
  12. Increased chances of infection,
  13. Swollen gums, loosening teeth, pulling of gums away from the teeth,
  14. Deterioration in sexual activities amongst men,
  15. Tingling sensations and numbness in your hind and fore limbs, etc.

These symptoms only keep on increasing, till the time they start affecting serious organs of your body. This can be protected by a visit to Ayurvedic doctors in the initial days of detection of the disease.

How to Detect Diabetes?
Diabetes can be detected with the help of a blood test or urine test. Both these tests are competent enough to detect the level of sugar in your blood and also whether it is controlled or not. Visiting a doctor can also help you to put your finger on the fact, whether the symptoms you are facing are related to diabetes or not.

When Should You Consult a Specialist?
You should visit a doctor as soon as you notice a couple of symptoms of diabetes mentioned above or for that matter have had your monthly medical tests done, and they show an uncontrolled level of glucose in your blood. Consulting a doctor will lead to a proper diagnosis of the condition and the prescription of best Ayurvedic medicines and treatments for speedy recovery.

Ayurvedic Medicine for Diabetes:
Though diabetes can be regarded to as a modern ailment, Ayurveda has surfaced as one of the best cures for the condition. The aim of Ayurveda is to control the level of glucose in the blood, with the use of all natural medication, which poses no additional harm or side effects to the patients.

Diabetes is a life style disorder in which the role of the drug is last. First is observing dietic principles, second is practicing pranayama, meditation and yoga regularly. And lastly, the use of drugs. Hence one should never take lot of stress. Worrying increases the problem. Very simple drugs are Amlaki Haridra Guduchi Avarthaki (Thangedu in telugu) are highly recommend.

Some of the best Ayurvedic medicines for diabetes are-

  1. Coccinia Indica,
  2. Neem or Azadirachta Indica,
  3. Mulberry or Morus Indica,
  4. Bitte Gourd or Momordica Charantia,
  5. Eugenic Jambolana,
  6. Fenugreek or Trigonella Foenum, etc.

While these Ayurvedic medicines might not cure the condition 100% but they control the level of glucose to a level where a patient becomes almost normal.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

For BP you need tablets and healthy lifestyle like exercise and less salt. 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.

In order to reduce blood triglycerides level you need to lose weight (19 Kg), Exercise daily for 1 hr, reduce quantity of cereal (ex rice/ roti/ bread) in your meal, instead include a dairy item, plenty of vegetables, fruits, pulse/ meat in the meal, replace simple carbs like sugar, poatato, maida, rice, bread, noodles, macaroni with complex carbs like atta, bajra, ragi, barley, oats, jowar, dalia, suji, salads, whole fruits, avoid junk/ fast/ street/ processed/ packaged/ fried/ sugary foods/ soft drinks/ alcohol.

Dear sir. Pls. Provide me your kind guidance. Following is the result of my mothers thyroid test. T3- 98.73 ng/dL T4-5.39ug/dL TSH-7.685 ulu/ml Where tsh is high. She is taking thyronorm tablet of 25 mg power .what should she do now. Pls suggest. Is there any need to increase dose. If yes. Then how much. She felt minor unconscious ness yesterday.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Your mother is already taking thyronorm 25 mcg tablet daily once which is her treatment for hypothyroidism - however, we monitor the adequacy of the treatment in such cases by the value of tsh report which should be maintained within the range. High tsh indicates that her dose for thyroid medicines needs to be increased.
