"Changes that come to material substances, specially the medicinal, through the trituration of non-medicinal powder, agitation of non-medicinal fluid, are so incredible that may be compared to miracles, and is a reason of joy that those changes belong to Homoeopathy." Dr. Samuel Hahnemann
Diabetes can be described as a heterogeneous metabolic disorder. It is a major lifestyle disease that affects a large number of people nowadays. This disease is characterized by abnormally high levels of glucose (hyperglycemia). Insufficient action of insulin or deficiency in the secretion of insulin levels results in such a situation. As of now, the diabetes is present in almost 143 million people worldwide. In 2015, the number is estimated to be at 300 million. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), India will rank no: 1 in the number of diabetes patients in future. Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome that is both dynamic and ubiquitous.
One can diagnose the presence of this disorder through the following symptoms:
Type I and type II are the 2 categories of diabetes. The type 2 form is difficult to diagnose due to general symptoms. As a result, many people are affected with diabetes type 2 for years because of inadequate knowledge. The type 1 develops at a relatively quicker rate than type 2.
Homoeopathic Treatment for type 2 diabetes
Diabetes mellitus type 2 is due to insulin resistance or decrease in the secretion of insulin. Also, type 2 diabetes has a more strong genetic influence when compared to the other type. Youngsters in particular are affected with Maturity onset diabetes of young (MODY).
Medicines like Nux-v.12c can be taken, which may have a slight effect of hypoglycemia. Metaformin, Glibenclamide etc can be used to control the FBS (Fasting Blood Sugar).
Homoeopathic Treatment for type 1 diabetes
Diabetes Type 1 is insulin dependent. This type can also lead to weight loss and even ketoacidosis. For decreasing the level, Nux-v can be taken. Sulphur can be administered and it may not result in hypoglycemic spells. Since the disorder is caused due to a dip in the insulin level, NPH insulin also can be taken.
