The prevalence of diabetes mellitus in India is estimated to be 1-5%. India is better known as Diabetic market of the world. The World Health Organization has estimated that a low income Indian family with a diabetic patient devotes 25% of the income to the care of that patient.

What is diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus, a metabolic disorder, is characterised by these two features:

  • Hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar)
  • Glycosuria (loss of excessive sugar in the urine


Types Of Diabetes 

Diabetes mellitus is of two types:

  1. Insulin-dependent, which has juvenile onset and called type 1 diabetes
  2. Non-insulin dependent, which has onset in adulthood and is called type 2 diabetes

    Signs and symptoms:

    A patient of diabetes mellitus may present with excessive thirst, appetite, or frequency in urination, unusual weight gain or weight loss, and non-healing ulcers.

    Ayurvedic Home Remedies For Diabetes

    Although, insulin and oral hypoglycaemic agents are the mainstay of treatment of diabetes, they have prominent side effects and fail to alter the course of diabetic complications. The high cost of some agents and potential for adverse effects have led several investigators to focus their attention on the traditional medicines.

    2. Bitter gourd juice(Momordica charantia) 6 teaspoonfuls (30 ml)

        Another remedy for Diabetes is Black Plum. Take Black Plum Seed Meat(Jamun Ki Guthli KI Giri) and let it dry in tea. Once dried, grind it properly and take this mixture with water twice a day. Within a month, you will notice the difference.
