WHAT IS DIABETES?
Diabetes is chronic metabolic disorder caused by malfunction of pancreas. The medical name for it is Diabetes mellitus. Our Ayurvedic physicians, Charaka and Susruta were aware of this debilitating disorder, which they appropriately called madhumeha (passing honey urine or sweet urine), as sugar is actually passed in the urine of diabetic victims.
Scattered throughout the pancreas are pinhead-sized groups of special cells the islets of Langerhans, which secrete and release into the bloodstream the vital hormone insulin, in precisely needed bursts. Without this hormone, the body is unable to change foods- proteins, fats, carbohydrates – into energy needed to sustain life and keep the body functioning properly.
For unknown reasons, in diabetic, the islets are totally or partially unable to secrete insulin. The result: large amounts or sugar accumulate in the blood, causing the blood sugar to soar to abnormal levels (above 180-220 mg. per cent), and pass out of the body sweetish urine. The point at which this happens is called the renal threshold.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF DIABETES.
Doctors have classified diabetes into two major types:
Type I Diabetes, also called juvenile-onset diabetes ( JOD ) or insulin dependent diabetes mellitus ( IDDM ), occurs usually in persons under 20 years of age. It involves the total absence of Insulin. Thus people with this form of diabetes must take insulin shots for the rest of their lives. However, Yoga does help these cases gradually reduce the dosage, as was found during the Diabetic Camps at The Yoga Institute.
Type II Diabetes, also referred to as maturity-one set diabetes (MOD) or non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), hits the middle-aged.. In Type II, which generally affects obese adults, the pancreas can still produce some insulin, but not enough.
