Diabetes is becoming a leading health concern across the globe. It will not be an overstatement if we say that we all know at least one person who has succumbed to diabetes. A further cause for concern is the dramatic rise of diabetes among children and adolescents.
There are more than 194 million people (adult population) living with diabetes, worldwide.
Homeopathy emphasizes on the holistic management of diabetes. Its aim is primarily focused on maintaining ‘normal’ levels of insulin, or keeping conventional anti-diabetic drugs at the minimum possible dosage, and in preventing the progression or complications of the disease.
What is diabetes?
Diabetes Mellitus (DM) or diabetes, as all of us know, is a disorder in which the body (particularly the islet cells in the pancreas) fails to secrete adequate insulin. It can also be attributed to the body’s decreased ability to utilise insulin.
In a healthy individual, food is digested to release glucose into the blood. This causes the pancreas to release insulin (a hormone) into the bloodstream. Insulin helps in the transportation of glucose from the blood into the cells so that it may be converted into energy.
When the pancreas fails to produce adequate amounts of insulin, or if there is insulin resistance, glucose remains within the blood and the body cannot convert it into energy. This is what leads to the condition of diabetes.
