Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease in which blood sugar levels are elevated.

Diabetes is most frequently seen in patients where there is suppressed gonococcal discharge or secondary symptoms of gonococcal infection. Diabetic patients with high blood sugar experience symptoms of frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased hunger. Diabetes can lead into severe complications if improper treatment. Acute complications consist of diabetic ketoacidosis and nonketotic hyperosmolar coma. Long-term complications are cardiovascular disease, stroke, chronic kidney failure, foot ulcers, and diabetic retinopathy.

Defect in insulin production by fibrosed Beta Cells in pancreas is the cause for Diabetes. Sometimes it is due to the cells of the body not responding properly to the insulin produced, is the cause for defect in insulin production from pancreas.

Types of Diabetes Mellitus:

Type 1 DM is due to the pancreas’ failure to produce adequate insulin. This is called “insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus” (IDDM) or “juvenile diabetes”. The cause is not know in these cases.

Type 2 DM in which cells become insulin resistant, in this condition cells fail to respond to insulin properly. As the disease progresses there will be diminished insulin production. This condition was earlier referred to as “non insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus” (NIDDM) or “adult-onset diabetes”. The primary cause was thought excessive body weight and sedentary body weight but is not sure in all cases.
Gestational diabetes, is another important form of diabetes and develops high blood sugar levels in pregnant women without a previous history of diabetes.

Prevention and Treatment

Regular Blood pressure check up, control and proper foot care are essential for people with diabetes. Taking insulin injections is only the treatment for Type 1 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be treated with medications without insulin, in early stages no medication is required for type 2 diabetes, diet and exercise are enough to regulate the blood sugar levels. Insulin and some oral medications can drop blood sugar levels to very low can cause hypoglycaemia. Weight loss measures in those with obesity is many times an effective option to control blood sugar levels in those with type 2 DM. Gestational diabetes mostly disappear after delivery. Approximately(2015 year) 437 million people have diabetes worldwide, among then type 2 diabetes cases are 91% . From 2012 to 2014, diabetes is estimated to have resulted in 1.5 to 4.9 million deaths each year. Diabetic disease doubles a person’s risk of death or disability.

Homeopathic Treatment for Diabetes:

Homeopathy can be used effectively in the treatment of diabetes. We must mainly concentrate on functioning of the pancreas in order to efficiently produce insulin. Medicines like Helonias 200, Iodum 200, Syzygium Jambolanum Q (Mother Tincture),Phosphorus 200c, Phosphoric acid 200c, Uranium nitricum 12X  are useful in the treatment of of the diabetes without side effects. patients who are already under insulin treatment can be treated with Homeopathic medicines for diabetes. But patient need to reduce insulin gradually. Homeopathic constitutional treatment for diabetes controls side effects of the disease. Homeopathy considers life style, diet habits, other physical symptoms along with clinical history of diabetes in order to control the sugar levels as well prevent diabetic complications like heart diseases, diabetic kidney disease, diabetic neuropathy and retinopathy etc.
