Diabetes Mellitus :
What is Diabetes Mellitus?
Diabetes is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by “hyperglycemia” (high level of blood sugar – glucose), resulting from absence or insufficient production of insulin or both. It is indeed a multifaceted multiorgan disorder and has been declared as a “disease of complications”.
This disease was known as ‘Asrava' during Vedic era (6000 BC), described as ‘Madhumeha' which means is a disease in which a patient passes sweet urine and exhibits sweetness all over the body i.e. in sweat, mucus, breath, blood etc.
Diabetes is a ‘chronic medical' condition meaning it can last a lifetime if unattended properly. It is also considered as entry point for multiple diseases in body.
What is body Insulin?
Insulin is a hormone that helps the body to use glucose for energy. The beta cells in the islets of the pancreas produces insulin. When the blood glucose level increases (eg. after meals), insulin is released from the pancreas which breaks down the glucose level and uses it as energy for the metabolic system. To help this process, pancreas also releases the equal amount of C-peptide into the blood stream.
When body cannot make enough insulin it is administered medically. There are alternate medicines which also help to a great extent to balance this deficiency.
What are the types of Diabetes Mellitus?
Diabetes Type 1
Also called as ‘Insulin-Dependent' or ‘Juvenile-Onset' Diabetes.
This is a result of the progressive destruction of beta cells in the islets of Langerhans, which lead to severe insulin deficiency or total halt in insulin production. Without insulin or abnormalities of insulin action, blood glucose raises to dangerously high levels.
These patients may require several injections of different types of insulin during the day to keep the blood sugar within an acceptable level.
Fortunately, the prevalence of Type 1 diabetes is quite low (5 - 10% of all diagnosed cases of diabetes). It is very hard to prevent this type because it is highly hereditary.
Diabetes Type 2
This is also called as ‘Non-Insulin-Dependent' or ‘Adult-Onset' Diabetes.
This condition is due to a combination of defective insulin secretions and insulin resistance or reduced insulin sensitivity in cell membranes. This is characterized by ‘hyperglycemia' resulting from the body's inability to use blood glucose for energy.
These patients can be treated and their condition kept under control with various types of therapies through traditional and scientific medications or in combination of both.
This is the most common form of diabetes (observed over 90 – 95% of diagnosed cases of diabetes).
It develops during pregnancy and may improve or disappear after delivery. This also involves a combination of inadequate insulin secretions, a responsiveness condition resembling Type -2 diabetes in several aspects.
It can occur in about 2-5% of all pregnancies. It is temporary and fully treatable. It also requires careful medical supervision during the pregnancy. This stage may be prevented by healthy diets and alternate therapies in the early stages.
For anyone with diabetes, it is encouraging to know that the future gets brighter everyday for managing the disease. Ongoing research on science and traditional approaches provide people with most up-to-date information and successful treatment plans possible.
Understanding the Diabetes and good diabetes management will help body to function close to normal.
Scientific Breakthrough of the 20th Century
The real breakthrough in the management of diabetes occurred after the epoch making discovery of the wonder drug ‘INSULIN' by nobel laureates Banting & Best. This has saved millions of diabetics worldwide and will continue to do so in the future.
Insulin therapy is a must for Type 1 diabetes. Herbal medicines can not replace insulin completely. Type 2 diabetes treatment can be begun with insulin and gradually be controlled by alternate medicines, diets and self discipline.
However, for centuries, people have been living around the world with this disease only with the limited available knowledge and resources of traditional medicines.
The role of traditional medicines in the solution of health problems is invaluable on a global level. This is all the more striking when we consider the fact that almost 80% of the people living in less developed countries and localities rely exclusively on traditional medicine for their health care needs.
East Asia in general, India in particular, has scores of plant food with anti-diabetic activity which is gathered over thousands of years. Before advent of insulin therapy, traditional herbal medicines were the only form of treatment available for diabetes. Understanding the invaluable nature of traditional herbs, now most modern treatments continue prescribing herbs as ‘dietary supplements'.
Furthermore, the population living below the line of poverty who are not able to afford the exhorbitant cost of drugs rely on herbal medicines. Herbal medicines in general are evidenced to control various diseases as most of them are well documented in indigenous system of medicines such as Ayurveda, Unani etc.. With available resources of modern technology these medicines continue to prove their inevitability to health care.
Systematic researches are required to gain credibility of herbs as alternate medicines.
It is clear that a holistic approach to the problem of diabetes is needed, which could be accompanied by the combination of modern scientific knowledge and traditional indigenous knowledge.
