Everything You Need to Know About Diabetes

What is Diabetes:

Diabetes is a disease that you can never fully recover when the pancreas is not able to make the necessary insulin in the body, or when the body is unable to use insulin properly.
           Insulin is a hormone that helps in the absorption of glucose from food, and reaches the cells of the body. In addition, insulin keeps your blood sugar levels balanced and does not allow too much (hyperglycemia) or too little (hypoglycemia).
     When your body has more sugar than necessary, insulin helps your liver to store sugar and when your blood glucose levels are low or when your body needs more sugar. Insulin then helps to balance blood glucose levels and keeps them within a traditional range. And when this balance is disturbed, the pancreas releases more insulin. 
    When insulin is not produced or used effectively in our body, then the level of glucose in the blood increases, which is known as hyperglycemia (high). Prolonged high glucose levels damage the body and cause failure of various organs and tissues.


According to Ayurveda:

According to Ayurveda, diabetes is understood as an imbalance of Kapha energy, which incorporates elements of earth and water. Ayurvedic practitioners ask the event of diabetes as a discount within the digestive fire or “Agni”, which causes the body to lack energy and reduce ability to eliminate toxins.

Type of Diabetes


Type of Diabetes:

Type -1

Diabetes is usually caused by an autoimmune process. In diabetes type 1, when the beta cells of the pancreas are damaged or destroyed, the body either loses its ability to make insulin and can only produce very small amounts of insulin.
Therefore people with type 1 will require insulin injections to maintain glucose levels in the body and to avoid complications from hyperglycemia.


In type 2, excessive production of insulin begins over many years to eliminate insulin receptors and, eventually, the normal cellular response to insulin in the body is reduced, and cells become unable to absorb sugar from the bloodstream which works to make energy in the body.

   In about 90% of cases of type 2 diabetes, the body is not able to make good use of manufactured insulin. 

Treatment of type 2 diabetes is a healthy lifestyle, which includes physical activity and healthy diet. Some herbal herbs can also be very beneficial in its treatment.
