What is Diabetes:
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 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:
Type of Diabetes:
Therefore people with type 1 will require insulin injections to maintain glucose levels in the body and to avoid complications from hyperglycemia.
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.
