What is Diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus, commonly known as diabetes, is a chronic aliment, that occurs either due to the failure of the pancreas to make insulin, or the bodies' incapacity to utilize the insulin produced. This effectively leads to a raised level of glucose in the blood, also known as hyperglycaemia.

Over the long-term, high glucose levels may lead to damage to the body and failure of vital organs and tissues. Hence, the correct treatment and management of diabetes are vital.


There are basically three types of diabetes,

Type 1: It is an auto immune disorder, where the immune system attacks and destroys the beta cells of the pancreas. Thus, resulting in very little or no insulin being released into the body. About 10% of people suffering from diabetes suffer from type 1 diabetes.

Type 2: It occurs either due to low production of insulin or the inability of the body to properly use the insulin produced, also known as insulin insensitivity. About 90 percent of people with diabetes suffers from type 2.

Gestational diabetes is a brief condition that arises during pregnancy. There is an increased risk of imminent diabetes for both mother and child. It affects roughly two to four percent of all pregnancies.

Signs and Symptoms.

Some of the signs commonly experienced are:

  • Increased frequency of urination.
  • Extreme thirst.
  • Increased appetite.
  • Loss of weight.
  • Fatigue.
  • Lack of awareness and attentiveness
  • Tingling sensation or numbness in the limbs.
  • Blurry vision.
  • Recurrent infections.
  • Slow-healing injuries.

Many more symptoms may occur depending upon the severity of the case.

Type 1 diabetes is easier to diagnose due to the display of unexpected and dramatic symptoms, meanwhile symptoms may be mild or none in type 2 diabetes, making it harder to detect.

Homeopathic Treatment.

Homeopathy is a holistic science that has proven very effective for the treatment of diabetes and other chronic ailments. It is a safe and effective form of treatment which can be taken alongside conventional diabetes medication. The non-reactive, non-habit forming and natural medication prescribed is based a detailed analysis of one's physical, physiological and emotional state.

The highly individualised homeopathic diabetes treatment considers every individual as a unique case and not a set of symptoms.

Homeopathy targets the immune system in order to correct its working. However, this form of treatment may require dietary and lifestyle changes, for the best results.

Diabetes-related complications can be very grave and life-threatening; it is recommended that one seeks professional help upon experiencing above mentioned symptoms, for a detailed diagnosis.
