Diabetes

Diabetes is now-a-days very close to us. Most of the people know much about diabetes. This disease can have many origins but the exact cause of diabetes is not known until today.

            Diabetes involves all the systems of the body & it damages the main organs. There are mainly two types of diabetes.

  1. Type 1 ( IDDM ) :- In this type patient’s pancreas; do not produce enough insulin. This is mostly juvenile ( fom birth ), so also called as juvenile diabetes. Patient have to take insulin regularly, so it also called INSULINE DEPENDANT DIABETES MELLITUS ( IDDM ).
  2. Type 2 :- After some age there may be lack of insulin in body or there may be insulin resistance in body which leads to high blood sugar. This diabetes is also termed as adult onset diabetes.
  3. Gestational Diabetes :- many women do not suffer from diabetes but during pregnancy their bllod sugar level increases leading to diabetes.
  4. Also there are some different conditions in which sugar rises but it may not be permanent.

Raised blood sugar alone means diabetes is incomplete definition. Raised blood sugar with frequent urination, fatigue, sudden weight loss, dryness of mouth, increased hunger, thirst, itchy skin, skin rashes, non healing wounds, etc. are many symptoms associated; so diabetes is a group of symptoms.

  

Diabetes in ayurved

 As per ayurveda PRAMEHA is the disease but today’s diabetes & prameha are somewhat differrent. There is detailed description of prameha in ayurveda. There are 20 types of prameha in ayurveda ( charaksamhita ). As per as our experience of 8 years of treating diabetes through ayurveda; the description in ayurveda is seems to be of prediabetic stage. And when the 19 types of pramehas are left untreated or when they are complicated they turn into the type MADHUMEHA; and madhumeha is having bad prognosis ( ASADHYA) as per ayurveda. Today what we called as diabetes is seems to be MADHUMEHA of ayurveda (the 20th type of prameha)

Now in short we will see the types of prameha
