Role of Homoeopathy in Diabetes
• Diabetes mellitus commonly known as diabetes is a metabolic disorder characterized by high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period of time.
• In conventional medicine there is no cure for diabetes instead only management of the condition is possible. Whereas homeopathic medicines aim to boost the individual's immune system hence strengthening the body itself to manage the disease condition.
Diabetes can occur n following two conditions
A) The pancreas produces little insulin or no insulin at all. Insulin is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the beta cells of the country as which helps the body to use sugar for energy.
2) The pancreas makes insulin but the insulin made doesn't work as it should this condition is called insulin resistance.
Our body is made up of millions of cells to make energy the cells need food in a very simple form. Whatever food we eat or drink it is broken down into simple sugar called glucose. Glucose provides the energy our body needs for daily activities.
Types of diabetes-
Type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes-(5% of the population)-occurs due to the destruction of the beta cells of the pancreas (insulin-producing cells) In this type of diabetes pancreas makes very little or no insulin so sugar can't get into the body's cells for use as energy. Type 1 diabetes is a common form of diabetes occurring in people who are under age 30 but it can occur at any age. People With this type of diabetes use insulin injections to control blood sugar levels.
Type 2 diabetes. (Affects 85 to 90%) in this type of diabetes, insulin is produced but it doesn't work properly. 9 out of 10 people with diabetes have
Type 2 diabetes. type 2 diabetes sometimes we can control with a combination of diet weight management and exercise.
Other types of diabetes include-
Gestational diabetes (2.5 % of pregnant women are affected) high blood glucose level during pregnancy is termed as gestational diabetes. As pregnancy progresses the developing baby has a greater need for glucose, hormone changes during pregnancy also affect the action of insulin which brings a high level of blood glucose level.
Pregnant women who have a greater risk of developing gestational
diabetes includes those who
• are above 35 years old -overweight
• family history of diabetes -and women with a history of p c o s.
• Blood glucose levels usually return to normal after childbirth. However, women with gestational diabetes have an increased risk of type 2 diabetes in later life.
Latent autoimmune diabetes of adulthood (LADA) (10 to 25% of people)-
Like type 1 diabetes LADA occurs when the body stops producing enough insulin but unlike type 1 the signs and symptoms are produced at a much slower rate.
Maturity onset diabetes of young (MODY) 1 to 2% of people- MODY is a very rare form of diabetes and is caused by a mutation change in a single gene that disrupts insulin production. It can affect any age.
Neonatal diabetes mellitus (NDM)-NDM is diagnosed very early in infants anywhere from birth to 6 months old the condition can be temporary and disappear later called transient neonatal diabetes mellitus (TNDM) or it can be permanent (PNDM).
Cause of LADA diabetes
• This happens because the body makes antibodies that cause the immune system to attack the insulin-making cells of the pancreas. As the ability of cells to make insulin is lost, the body can no longer control the sugar level. As mentioned earlier unlike type 1 diabetes symptoms get worse slowly.
• MODY-this type of diabetes is usually seen in adolescents or young adults. it's caused by changes in genes (cell mutation) that affect how well the body makes insulin. If enough insulin is not made the blood sugar level goes up.
Symptoms of diabetes-
Type 1 diabetes- due to damaged beta-cells there is high
blood sugar level which produces symptoms such as
a) Dehydration-when there is extra sugar in the blood the body tries to get rid of it by increasing the frequency of urination a large amount of water goes out with urine causing the body to dehydrate.
b) Weight loss the glucose that goes out with urine takes calories with that's why many people with high blood sugar lose weight.
Emotional cause considered in diabetes is the Resistance conflict means when there is strong opposition against a person

Therapeutics of diabetes (Kindly consult doctor before
Taking any medicine)
Uranium nitrate. [Uran] This remedy is praised highly by Hughes and others in diabetes originating in dyspepsia. It has polyuria, polydipsia, dryness of the mouth and skin. It causes sugar in the urine. Dr. Laning said that no remedy gives such universally good results; it lessens the sugar and quantity of the urine; he recommended the 3X trituration. It is when the disease is due to assimilative derangements that Uranium is the remedy, and symptoms such as defective digestion, languor, debility and much sugar in the urine, enormous appetite, and thirst, yet the patient continues to emaciate. Syzygium jambolanum is a remedy capable of diminishing the amount of sugar in the urine, especially when used in the tincture and lower triturations, and some cases have been reported cured, but it cannot be considered a reliable drug, and its use seems entirely palliative.
Phosphoric acid [Phos] corresponds to diabetes of nervous origin; the urine is increased, perhaps milky in color and containing much sugar. It suits cases due to grief, worriment, and anxiety, those who are indifferent and apathetic, poor in mental and physical force. It is unquestionably curative of diabetes mellitus in the early stages, great debility, and bruised feeling in the muscles. There will be loss of appetite, sometimes unquenchable thirst, and perhaps the patient will be troubled with boils. When patients pass large quantities of pale colorless urine or where there is much phosphatic deposit in the urine it is the remedy. It thus may be a remedy in the form known as diabetes insipidus. Hering considered Plumbum one of the most important remedies in diabetes mellitus.
Causticum, Scilla, and Strophanthus may be of use in diabetes insipidus. Lycopodium cured a case in a weary, wretched patient; emaciated, increased appetite and great thirst; pale, profuse urine Eight quarts in 24 hours.
Phosphorus. [Phos] Useful in diabetes and pancreatic diseases, especially in those of a tuberculous or gouty diathesis. The pancreatic involvement will call attention to Phosphorus. Natrum sulphuricum corresponds to the hydrogenoid constitution, with dry mouth and throat, and Arsenicum should be studied in diabetic gangrene, thirst, and emaciation. Sudden and extreme dryness of the mouth and marked physical restlessness is also guiding symptoms to this remedy, especially with a dark watery stool. Dr. P.Jousset reports positive success where the mouth is dry; frequent, abundant urination, and tendency to skin eruption.
Lactic acid. [Lact] An exceedingly good remedy in the gastrohepatic variety of diabetes and good results often follow its use. It has a fine clinical record. The symptoms are: urinates copiously and freely, urine light yellow and saccharine, thirst, nausea, debility, voracious appetite, and costive bowels. Dry skin, dry tongue, gastralgia. Acetic acid is also a valuable diabetic remedy, and it has the passing of large quantities of pale urine, intense thirst, hot, dry skin, and marked debility Carbolic acid may also be found useful.
Bryonia. [Bry] Should not be neglected in this disease. No remedy has dryness of the lips as a symptom of hepatic disorder more marked than Bryonia, and this is often one of the first symptoms of diabetes. There is a persistent bitter taste, the patient is languid, morose, and dispirited, thirst may not be extreme nor the appetite voracious, the patient may lose strength through inability to eat. Podophyllum has a bitter taste, but the tongue is flabby. It may be of use in the disease. Chionanthus is a remedy used by the Eclectic School upon the indications of thirst, frequent and copious urine; constipation with stools light-colored, devoid of bile. Functional liver disorders. Argentum metallicum. Hahnemann suggests the use of this remedy in diuresis, it is decided use in diabetes insipidus. The urine is profuse, turbid, and of a sweet odor. Micturition is frequent and copious. Natrum sulphuricum. Hinsdale reports good results with this remedy. It has polyuria, intense itching of the skin, especially upon the upper surface of the thighs. It is the Tissue Remedy of diabetes.
Insulin. [Insulin] Long before the discovery of Insulin Dr. Pierre Jousset of Paris prepared a pancreatic juice on a glycerine basis which he administered to diabetic patients in doses of 10 or 20 drops a day in the water and had results sufficiently good to consider pancreatic juice, orally-administered, as a remedy of great value in diabetes. Dr. Cartier, his practical successor, praised it insisted on smaller doses given by mouth as larger doses and hypodermic injections of it had no effect in ordinary diabetes. Baker advises the homeopathic strengths of Insulin 3d to 30th and reports happy results therefrom. Great care must be taken not to overdose. Boericke says that it maintains the blood sugar at a normal level and the urine remains free of sugar. Epileptic convulsions and mental derangements have been produced
