Ayurveda for Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus, generally known as diabetes, is a metabolic disease that causes high blood sugar. The hormone insulin transports sugar from the blood into your cells to be stored or used for energy. Without taking care of a proper diet, diabetes can lead to a build-up of sugars in the blood, which can increase the risk of dangerous complications such as stroke and heart disease. Gradual increase in Diabetes can lead to diabetic complications like blindness, kidney failure, and nerve damage. These damages are the result of damage to small vessels, referred to as microvascular disease. Hyperglycaemia, causes to spillage of glucose into the urine, hence the term sweet urine.

Types of Diabetes

Three major diabetes can develop TYPE 1, TYPE 2, and GESTATIONAL diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 also known as juvenile diabetes occurs when the body fails to produce insulin. People affected with type 1 diabetes are insulin-dependent, which means they should take artificial insulin daily to stay alive.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes affects the way the body uses insulin, the cells in the body do not react to it as effectively as they once did. This is the most common type of diabetes which has robust links with obesity.


During pregnancy, women will be affected by Gestational Diabetes when the body can become less sensitive to insulin. However, this type of diabetes does not occur in all women and usually resolves after giving birth.


The level of glucose in the blood is higher than usual but not so high as to constitute diabetes which is known as Prediabetes level. Normal blood sugar levels sit between 70 and 99 mg/dL, whereas a person with diabetes will have a fasting blood sugar higher than 126 mg/dL.
