Ayurvedic Treatment for Diabetes

          Diabetes is a lifestyle disease caused due to excessive glucose content in the blood. Pancreas is the organ which produces insulin. The increase in blood sugar releases insulin from the pancreas into the blood stream. It is because of either the insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to the produced insulin.

          Diabetes is of two types: Type1 and Type2. Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the insulin producing cells in the pancreas cells are destroyed and thus resulting the increase in blood sugar in our body. The symptoms are urination, hunger weight loss etc.Type2 disease occurred due to the decrease in the production of insulin producing cells. The symptoms are urination, hunger weight gain, vision impairment, slow healing from wounds, etc
