2. Type 2 diabetes – Type 2 diabetes is also known as non insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM) and is more common in the children who are obese or overweight. In this case there is a very less production of insulin which is insufficient to fulfill the body’s need. This condition further leads to insulin resistance.


In ayurveda, diabetes is known as madhumeha which is due to aggravation of vata dosha. Imbalance of vata results in the deterioration of dhatus (body tissues). Main cause of diabetes is the impaired digestion. Due to this there is the accumulation of digestive impurities in pancreatic cells which leads to impairment in insulin production. With the help of various herbs present in ayurveda, problem of diabetes can be managed. These herbs help in production of beta cells which further maintain the good blood sugar levels.
