Diabetes a growing concern for India?

In India, there are estimated 77 million people above the age of 18 years are suffering from diabetes (type 2) and nearly 25 million are per-diabetics (at a higher risk of developing diabetes in near future). More than 50% of people are unaware of their diabetic status which leads to health complications if not detected and treated early.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is one of the most common health conditions that affects over 10% of the adult population globally. In Ayurveda, diabetes is referred to as Madhumeha. Diabetes mellitus is referred to as Vata Prameha. It crops up because of an imbalance in the Vata Dosha (one of the three functional energies in the body). Diabetes insipidus is referred to as Kapha Prameha. Diabetes is one of the most common yet challenging health concerns that people face. Diabetes and Ayurveda have a healing link.

Diabetes mostly falls into 2 types i.e., Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes – In this case, the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Genes may play a role in attracting diabetes for some people.

 Type 2 diabetes - Type 2 Diabetes stems from a combination of genetics and lifestyle factors. Having overweight or obesity increases your risk. Carrying extra weight, especially in your belly, makes your cells more resistant to the effects of insulin on your blood sugar. This condition runs in families (Hereditary). Family members share genes that make them more likely to get type 2 diabetes and to be overweight.

Some of the most common Type 1 Diabetes symptoms are:

  • Extreme thirst
  • Excessive hunger
  • Dry mouth
  • Upset stomach
  • Urge to vomit
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Constant fatigue
  • Blurry vision


 Some of the most common Type 2 Diabetes symptoms are:

  • Extreme thirst
  • Unusually frequent urination
  • Excessive hunger
  • Unintended weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Slow-healing wounds
  • Frequent urination

Diabetic patients may also have other health concerns, such as those relating to the heart or kidney. However, because of diabetes, they may not feel the symptoms and some people may not just show any symptoms of Diabetes. Ayurveda focuses on treating diabetes using a holistic approach rather than a symptomatic approach.


What causes Diabetes?

  • Being physically inactive
  • Excessive sleep, including sleeping during the daytime
  • Excessive sugar intake
  • Eating too many foods that cause an increase in Kapha
  • Hereditary issue
