Ayurveda, the science of life, is the oldest System of medicine existing on this universe. It gives the information about almost all the diseases existing and its only aim is top revent the onset of the diseases and treatment for manifested diseases by various treatment modalities.
Among the list of major diseases, Diabetes mellitus comes in the first line.
The incidence of disease Diabetes mellitus is increasing day by day, India one of the main country which is having more percentage of Diabetic patients, the number is increasing in every minute. It is the right time to get the proper awareness about the disease, so that one can prevent the onset of disease or otherwise can maintain the disease with normal blood sugar levels and can lead a normal healthy life.
The word madhumeha indicates the clinical condition where there is an increased passing of sweet urine along with increase in blood glucose level.
There are two types of madhumeha patients, in first type the patient will be very lean, very weak, irritable, usually the cause is hereditary.
The second type is basically due to altered life style, for example not following the daily regimens as said in Ayu all tastes in it like sweet, sour, salt, hot, astringent and bitter in equal proportion, taking excess food, taking only the food which is rich in fat mainly, that too animal fat, sleeping in the day time, avoid sleep in the night times, , suppressing the natural urges like urination, defecation, By these type of habits which are opposite to health rules will gradually leads to altered digestive activity……, later leading to alteration in metabolism resulting in onset of diabetes mellitus. Previously the onset of the disease was noted at the age of 40 year and above, but now due to utter negligence in health rules, plenty of diabetic mellitus cases are noticing in still early age group only.
Here the patient looks obese with increased body weight, with a tendency to excessive eating, avoiding minimum physical activity, always prefer to sleep, with the complaints like excessive urination, excessive thirst, easy tiredness. Many times above said symptoms hardly noticed in patients. So in the present situation it is better to make allpersons of age group between 25-30 years to undergo BLOOD INVESTIGATIONS for both sugar level as well as lipid level along with routine urine examination.
The present available Diabetic mellitus patients can be recognized in three stages and can be treated in three way as follows
