Are There Any Natural Ways To Control Diabetes?


The food we eat is converted into glucose by various processes occurring in our bodies. Insulin is a hormone produced by beta cells in the pancreas. It is responsible for the maintenance of normal glucose homeostasis in the body. It allows cells to uptake glucose for day-to-day activities. Insulin is also responsible for glycogenesis, glycogenolysis, and gluconeogenesis.
If there is an abnormality in insulin production, there is an accumulation of glucose in blood and cells do not get enough glucose for activities.


Diabetes is a disease in which your blood sugar level is raised (Hyperglycemia). Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes and Gestational diabetes are the most common types of diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes occurs when your body is unable to produce insulin. It is also called Insulin-dependent diabetes. It is due to an autoimmune response that destroys beta cells in your pancreas. It usually develops during childhood. In Type 2 Diabetes, either your body produces insufficient insulin or does not use it efficiently. It is also called Non-Insulin dependent diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes is more common than Type 1 Diabetes. Whereas gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy due to increased production of placental hormones leading to insulin resistance. It resolves after the birth of the foetus. All types of Diabetes including Gestational Diabetes can lead to serious health complications. So, it is very important to manage Diabetes properly.

In Ayurveda, Diabetes is called Prameha. According to Acharya Charak, a sedentary lifestyle, oversleeping, excessive use of curd, excessive intake of soup of aquatic and marshy animals, excessive consumption of jaggery and other Kapha-promoting factors are responsible for Prameha. Prameha is considered Kapha Pradhan Tridoshaj Vyadhi. Kapha and Pitta cause Prameha by affecting medas (Lipid metabolism), muscles and body fluid situated in the urinary bladder. Under the action of dosha, different types of Prameha are produced by reaching the urinary bladder and affecting the urine. These three doshas affect medas (fat), blood, semen, fluid (ambu), muscle fat, lasika (lymph), majja (marrow), rasa, ojas (immunity) and muscles. 20 types of Prameha are known in Ayurveda. There are 10 types of Kaphaj Prameha, 6 types of Pittaj Prameha and 4 types of vatik Prameha.


  1. Sweating
  2. Foul smell in body
  3. Laxity in body
  4. Fond for comfort in lying, sitting and sleeping
  5. Heaviness in body
  6. Excessive increase of hair, nails
  7. Liking for cold
  8. Sweetness in mouth
  9. Burning sensation in hands and feet


According to Acharya Charak, Prameha is treated in two ways:

  1. In Obese and strong patients: Sanshodhan Chiktisa (Detoxification) is done.
  2. In Lean and weak patients: Brihan Chiktisa (Nourishing therapy) is done.
