Diabetes is a metabolic disease which can be caused by different causes and affect Carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism. According to World Health Organization (WHO), there are more than 17 crore people with diabetes in the world, in the year 2000 and by the year 2030, this figure will increase to more than 36 crore!
What Is Diabetes?
There are two types of diabetes, insulin‐dependent (type 1) and non-insulin‐dependent (type 2). Both types affect the body's ability to use digested food for energy. Diabetes doesn't interfere with digestion, but it does prevent the body from using an important product of digestion, glucose (commonly known as sugar), for energy.
After a meal the digestive system breaks some food down into sugar. The blood carries the sugar throughout the body, causing blood sugar levels to rise. In response to this rise, the hormone insulin is released into the blood to signal the body to burn the sugar for fuel, causing blood sugar levels to return to normal.
A gland called the pancreas, found just behind the stomach, makes insulin. Sugar the body doesn't use right away goes to the liver, muscle, or fat for storage. In someone with diabetes, this process doesn't work correctly. In people with type 1 diabetes, the pancreas doesn't produce insulin. This condition usually begins in childhood. People with this kind of diabetes must have daily insulin injections to survive.
In people with type 2 diabetes the pancreas usually produces some insulin, but the body doesn't respond very well to the insulin signal and, therefore, doesn't burn the sugar properly, a condition called insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is an important factor in type 2 diabetes .
Over time, this extra sugar in your blood can lead to problems with your eyes, heart, blood vessels, nerves, and kidneys.

Homeopathy for Diabetes
Homeopathy is based on the principle that disease is a total affliction of body. Homoeopathic treatment with or without intake of hypoglycemic drugs can prevent the progress and the complications associated with this condition.
Moreover, timely administered homeopathic medicines help in maintaining the levels of exogenous insulin and hypoglycaemic drugs at minimum possible dosage and in preventing the further progress of the disease. Healthy diet and exercise are a must to achieve optimum health results. In numerous cases, homeopathic medicines have successfully cured diabetes that is early stage.
