Diabetes is a serious disorder of the glands of the pancreas, to be precise; in Ayurveda it is called ‘Madhumeha’. It is one of the most deadly disorders of metabolism and if not diagnosed, it may lead to rapid attenuation and eventually death. Diabetes mellitus is one of the most expensive cumbersome chronic diseases of our time and is a condition that is increasing in epidemic populations all over the world. Complications resulting from diseases are an important cause of morbidity and mortality and are associated with failure of various organs such as eyes, kidneys and nerves. Diabetic patients are also at significantly higher risk for coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease and stroke and are more likely to have hypertension dyslipidemia and obesity. According to Ayurveda, there are two types of Diabetes and these are as follows.

  1. Insulin dependent Juvenile Diabetes (IDDM-Type I)
  2. Non Insulin Dependent Adult Onset Diabetes (NIDDM-Type II)

In the first type i.e. Insulin dependent Juvenile Diabetes (IDDM-Type I), the body is unable to produce insulin. While in the second type i.e. Non Insulin Dependent Adult Onset Diabetes (NIDDM-Type II), the pancreas produces insulin, but it is insufficient for reducing the blood glucose to normal levels.
