Abstract

Diabetes is a group of diseases that are caused due to the imbalance or excess of sugar (glucose) in the body and this affects how your body uses the sugar.

Most helpful Homeopathic Remedies for Diabetes

Glucose is the main source of energy for your body. It not only helps make up our body cells, muscles and tissues but also acts as fuel for our brain. The glucose or sugar levels have to be maintained fairly constant in the body. The excess of sugar in the body leads to various health problems.

Causes of Diabetes

The cause of diabetes varies from person to person. It is considered a genetic disorder and runs in families. However, anybody can suffer from it, even if it does not run in your family. Some risk factors include sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, extremely stressful life, lack of sleep, etc. These factors increase the likelihood of getting diabetes.

Types of Diabetes

There are two types of diabetes - type 1 and type 2. There is also a stage called prediabetes which is reversible diabetes. It is mainly caused during pregnancy where sugar levels are higher than normal but not so high as to classify as diabetes. In such people, usually, the sugar level comes back to normal once the baby is delivered.

Type 1 diabetes - Usually, it appears in childhood or teenage life. However, it can occur at any age.

Type 2 diabetes - Most of the time, it appears at an older age, that is, after 40 years. However, this type can also be seen at any age of life.

Symptoms of Diabetes

The symptoms experienced by each individual depend on how much the sugar is increased in your body. The most common symptoms are:

  • Frequent urination.
  • Increased thirst.
  • Increased perspiration.
  • High appetite or increased hunger.
  • Weight loss without any diet or without any reason.

  • Presence of ketones in the urine.

Conventional Medicine Vs Homeopathy

Millions of people have been suffering from diabetes and its related complications. And millions of people have been taking conventional medicines for this problem. We all know there is no cure for diabetes and hence patients have to keep on taking the medicines every day, either in the form of tablets or Insulin. The practitioners of conventional prescribe Insulin in the treatment of diabetes. This is more like a replacement therapy where diabetes becomes a lifelong disease and patients have to take Insulin every day. This is so troublesome as well as expensive.

In such cases, homeopathy can be very effective in treating diabetes. Homeopathic medicines mainly act on the pancreas, allowing it to produce adequate amounts of insulin. There are so many best homeopathic remedies given for diabetes.
