Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder, in which the body is unable to make adequate use of glucose, resulting in a condition of hyperglycemia. Excessive glucose in the blood leads to high levels of glucose in the urine (glucosuria). This increases the production of urine, which leads to dehydration and increased thirst.

Glucose comes from the food we eat and is also generated in the liver and muscles. So, the blood carries glucose to all the cells of our body. So, Insulin, a chemical produced in the pancreas, is responsible for the uptake of glucose into cells for energy. Then, the decrease in insulin levels affects this mechanism, which leads to an increase in glucose in the bloodstream.

In Ayurveda, diabetes mellitus is known as Madhumeha (Madhu means “honey” and Meha means “urine”). So, Madhumeha is categorized as Vataj Meha. Vata is a humor in Ayurveda, which symbolizes wind and dryness.

The deterioration of the body is a characteristic that indicates a deterioration of Vata. Then, the other major cause of diabetes mellitus is that it alters digestion. So, the deterioration of digestion leads to the accumulation of specific digestive impurities that accumulate in the pancreatic cells and impair the production of insulin.

Ayurvedic treatment for this disease is based on a complete change in the person’s lifestyle. Along with medicines and diet, it is also recommended that the patient lead a healthy life and have an active life. So, changes in diet and lifestyle rejuvenate cells and tissues of the body, allowing the body to produce insulin properly. Even mental aspects are consider in Ayurvedic medicine
