How to win-over Diabetes with Ayurveda Remedies?

 

The burden of diabetes is high and increasing globally, and unfortunately, India’s presence in the ICMR reports (India Council of Medical Research) doesn’t seem too impressing. Fueled by the increasing prevalence of overweight and unhealthy lifestyles, the number of Indian affected from diabetes is expected to touch 134 million by 2045.

I agree the disease sounds frightening and our mind tricks us into lifetime of medications, insulin pumps, and health complications when it hears “Diabetes treatment”.  However, diabetes is the one disease that you can control and even reverse completely through healthy lifestyle changes and basic treatment.

Before we hop onto the tips for lifestyle change, I want you to extend a short hand towards signs and symptoms of Diabetes, types of diabetes, what are its causes and then learn about its treatment.

Signs and Symptoms of Diabetic Exposure

To know you have diabetes can be tricky in the early phase as the warning signs are mild. They go unnoticed until you get problems from long-term damage by Diabetes. The earliest symptoms are higher level of glucose levels in your blood which can then be categorized into Type 1 diabetes symptoms and Type 2 diabetes symptoms.

However, both types of diabetes have some of the same telltale warning signs. Such as:

  • Hunger and fatigue
  • Frequent urination & increased thirst
  • Dry mouth and itchy skin
  • Blurred vision
  • Tingling or numbness in feet or hands
  • Yeast infections
  • Slow healing of cuts
  • Dark skin patches

These signs and symptoms are further labelled as mild or severe depending on the type of diabetes you have. Let’s discuss and learn what are the types of diabetes that exist in India:

Type 1 Diabetes:
Diabetic condition where your blood glucose (sugar) level is too high that your body can’t make a hormone called insulin.

Cause of Type 1 Diabetes:
The reason to this type is not clearly known to the doctor. It is an autoimmune condition where your immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the cells in your pancreas and damages insulin production.

Type 2 Diabetes:
This type emerges from a condition called insulin resistance. This means your body doesn’t respond normally to insulin, resulting into more production of it and increased sugar levels.

Cause of Type 2 Diabetes:
This condition stems from a combination of lifestyle and genetics, higher weight or obesity. Other health and environmental reasons also contribute to Type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes Diagnosis and Treatment

Switching and adapting to a Diabetes treatment without consulting the doctor or taking a test would definitely wouldn’t be a smart move. Diabetes specialist suggest people to undergo diagnosis tests and then adapt to a suitable treatment or medication. Here are the three tests that measure the sugar levels in your blood:

Fasting glucose test: A blood sample is tested in the morning after an 8-hour fasting.

Random Glucose Test: This test can be done randomly without fasting.

A1C test: Also called, HbA1C, provides your blood sugar levels over the past two or three months. This test measures the glucose amount attached to hemoglobin, protein in red blood cells. There’s no need of fasting in this test too.

 Oral glucose tolerance test: Blood glucose is first measures after an overnight fast and then an hour after a sugary drink consumption.  Check the below mentioned table to check the normal blood sugar levels for each test:

Diabetes Treatment

Diabetes treatment generally includes insulin pumps, medications, healthy eating, exercising, and more. However, these treatments pertaining to each diabetes type may vary person to person. Let’s further learn about these:

Treatments for Type 1 Diabetes

  • Insulin Pumps: Insulin pumps are a good alternative to insulin pen as they offer much more ease and flexibility.

  • Islet cell transplant: Your doctors may recommend you undergoing Islet cell transplant (the cells that make insulin). The cells from a donor are transplanted in your pancreas to replace the damaged islet in your body. This treatment helps prevent hypos.

  • Immunotherapy: Since type 1 is an immune system disease, immunotherapy promises a way to use medication that turns off the parts of the immune system that cause Type 1 disease.

Treatments for Type 2 Diabetes

  • Medications: The foremost treatment method employed for type 2 diabetes is using medications like Metformin which works on improving your body’s potential to utilize insulin and lowers down glucose production in liver.

    The other one is Sulphonylureas, that stimulates pancreas to produce more insulin. Though each medication comes with its own side effects, it is suggested to get these prescribed by your doctor.

  • Weight loss surgery: If needed, your doctor may prescribe you undergoing weight loss surgery that help you with obesity from stomach and intestine. A lot of studies prove that weight loss surgery can help putting Type 2 Diabetes to remission.

  • Diet and Exercise: A part of diabetic population doesn’t choose any among surgeries, medications, and insulin. They rather cut on their Type 2 diabetes with eating well and moving more. As per studies, weight loss is the best way to put Type 2 Diabetes to remission.

  • When we mention eating well we mean maintaining a Diabetic diet by including a variety of healthy foods from all food groups, in the amounts your real meal outlines

The food groups are:

  • Vegetables:
    • Nonstarchy foods: broccoli, carrots, greens and tomatoes
    • Starchy foods: potatoes, corn, green peas
  • Fruits: berries, apple, grapes, bananas, oranges

  • Grains: prefer eating whole grains like wheat, rice, oats, barley, quinoa

  • Protein: lean meat, eggs, nuts, peanuts, fish, tofu

  • Dairy: yogurt, milk
