Diabetes mellitus, commonly referred to as diabetes, is a metabolic disorder characterized by elevated blood sugar levels. In the body, the hormone insulin plays a crucial role in transporting sugar from the bloodstream into cells, where it can be stored or used as an energy source.

Failure to maintain a proper diet and manage diabetes can result in the accumulation of excess sugars in the bloodstream. This heightened blood sugar level can significantly increase the risk of severe complications, including strokes and heart diseases. Prolonged and uncontrolled diabetes can lead to various diabetic complications, such as blindness, kidney failure, and nerve damage. These complications often arise due to damage to tiny blood vessels, a condition known as microvascular disease.

Hyperglycemia, a condition where blood sugar levels are elevated, can cause excess glucose to be excreted in the urine, giving rise to the term “sweet urine.”

Types of Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes Type 1 diabetes, often referred to as juvenile diabetes, occurs when the body fails to produce insulin. Individuals with type 1 diabetes are insulin-dependent, meaning they must administer artificial insulin daily to sustain their lives.

Type 2 Diabetes Type 2 diabetes impacts the body’s utilization of insulin, with cells in the body becoming less responsive to it compared to their previous state. This is the most prevalent type of diabetes and is closely associated with obesity.

Gestational Diabetes Gestational diabetes can develop during pregnancy, resulting in reduced sensitivity to insulin in the body. It’s important to note that this type of diabetes does not affect all pregnant women and usually resolves after childbirth.

Prediabetes Prediabetes refers to a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not elevated enough to be classified as diabetes. Normal blood sugar levels typically range between 70 and 99 mg/dL, while a person with diabetes will have a fasting blood sugar level exceeding 126 mg/dL.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Diabetes

Ayurveda identifies poor digestion as the primary cause of diabetes. Weak digestion can lead to the production of a sticky toxin known as “ama,” which accumulates in pancreatic cells and disrupts insulin production.
