Ayurveda & Diabetes


Ayurveda is a traditional Indian system of medicine, which is a recognized system of traditional medicine by WHO. The age old herbal remedies and herbal supplements offered by Ayurveda often give miraculous results in many difficult to treat illnesses. Ayurveda explains use of herbs, minerals, natural remedies, herbal products, life style modification, dietary modification, nutrition, meditation, purification and rejuvenation as methods of healing. "Samadosha samagnisch samadhatu malakriya Prasanna atma mana swastha iti abhidhiyate." Having a balanced state of Doshas, Agni (Digestive Fire), Dhatus (tissues) and normal functioning of Mala (waste products), cheerful state of Atman (soul), sensory organs, and mind are the symptoms of healthy life.

  • If Vata gets out of balance, for instance, it leads to overactive mind, poor circulation, poor nerve conduction, loss of memory, irregular elimination, uncomfortable menses, etc. - all things related to movement.

  • If Pitta is out of balance, we can get excessive digestive fire, resulting in heartburn, excess stomach acid, a hot temper, inflammations, etc. -all things related to heat and digestion.

  • If Kapha gets out of balance, it can lead to chronic congestion, weight gain, cellulite, cholesterol buildup, acne, oily skin, etc. - all things related to structure and lubrication.

Vata-Pitta-Kapha Body types & Personalities
  •  According to Ayurveda, the five elements: (fire, earth, water, air & space) in their biological form combine to form these 3 energies in the body. These 3 basic energies are the primary life forces or biological humors, called doshas in Ayurveda-The Vata, Pitta and Kapha. They help regulate physical functioning within our body, besides providing us with individual physical characteristics. The constitution of a person is primarily determined by the dominant dosha .

  • It is such a unique combinations of doshas that no two persons are alike. The determination of the constitution gives insight into deeper working, behavior, body type and with this it is possible to know which herbs, diet, medicines and activities will be suitable for a particular individual to maintain his health whole life. It also becomes easier to outline the disease tendencies of the different body types so that a preventive lifestyle may be observed. Accordingly, a person can plan diet and other routine activities affirming to his / her constitution. This individual constitution analysis is an important step to ascertain about types of diseases and to help a lot in maintenance of good health and prevention of diseases.

  • Your predominant dosha could be any one of the three, a combination of any two or all the three in a balanced form.

Diabetic symptoms:

People with type- 2 diabetes usually do not have any symptoms. When symptoms occur then they used to often ignore it because they may not seem serious. Symptoms in type-1 diabetes usually crop up suddenly and are often knockout.

  • Blurred vision

  • Excessive thirst and appetite

  • Nausea, perhaps vomiting

  • In men and women, yeast infections

  • Excessive sweating

  • Feel irritable

  • Fatigue

  • Increased urination (sometimes as often as every hour)

  • Itching skin, especially in the groin or vaginal area

  • Slow-healing sores or cuts

  • Breathing more deeply and rapidly than normal

  • Dry mouth

  • Unusual weight loss or gain

  • In women, frequent vaginal infections

  • Suddenly drowsy

  • Have abdominal pain

Types of Diabetes:

About 25.6 million people age 20 or older -- more than 1 in every 9 -- have type 2 diabetes. Another 79 million people are considered prediabetic. Type 2 diabetes is serious. Adults who have diabetes are two to four times more likely to die of heart disease compared to those without diabetes, and 67% have high blood pressure. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure and blindness in adults. Nerve problems -- such as impaired sensation in the feet or carpal tunnel syndrome -- affect 60% to 70% of people with diabetes. More than 60% of lower-limb amputations that are not a result of trauma are performed on people with diabetes. The average medical expenses for someone with diabetes are 2.3 times more than for someone without.

Both type-1 and type-2 diabetes affect the way the body controls the level of blood glucose, but these two conditions are very different.

Type-1 diabetes:

Type-1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system attacks the pancreas. Eventually, the pancreas is unable to produce insulin, requiring lifelong insulin injections or an insulin pump (and close monitoring of blood sugar levels). Previously known as juvenile diabetes, type 1 diabetes is usually detected in childhood, but it can also be diagnosed in adults. Type 1 diabetes has a genetic component, although it is possible for environmental factors, such as exposure to a virus, to trigger the destructive immune process.

Type-2 diabetes:

Type-2 diabetes, the body may produce insulin, but the body's cells don't respond to insulin normally and glucose starts to build up in the bloodstream instead of being used by the cells. Without glucose in the cells, the body feels fatigued and dehydration can occur as sugars accumulate. Although sometimes called adult-onset diabetes, that's not always the case. With the growing rate of childhood obesity, an increasing number of kids are being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

Even though type 2 diabetes used to be called non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, insulin is necessary for some people who have type 2 diabetes. Typically, when first diagnosed, health care providers try to control blood sugar through diet, increasing physical activity, and weight management. For some people, that does the trick. For others, though, even with careful attention to their lifestyle, treatment with medication is needed. Some medications for type 2 diabetes are taken by injection, including insulin. Others are pills that can be taken by mouth. Health care providers work with people to find a regimen that works to control the individual's glucose level.

Eating sugar will not cause type 2 diabetes. However, consuming too many calories and becoming overweight contribute to your body becoming insulin resistant and allowing blood glucose levels to increase. Sugary treats such as cookies, cake, pie, or ice cream can be part of a healthy diet when they are eaten only occasionally and in small portions and taken into account when considering total daily calories.

Who's at Risk for Developing Type 2 Diabetes?

Those at risk for type 2 diabetes include:

  • People with a family history of type 2 diabetes.

  • Women who had gestational diabetes or have had a baby weighing more than 9 pounds.

  • Women who have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

  • African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, and Pacific Islanders, minority groups that are disproportionately affected by diabetes.

  • People who are overweight or obese, especially around the abdomen (belly fat).

  • People with high cholesterol, high triglycerides, low good 'HDL' cholesterol, and a high bad 'LDL' cholesterol.

  • People who are inactive.

  • Older people. As people age they are less able to process sugar appropriately and therefore have a greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

What Are the Symptoms of Prediabetes?

Although most people with prediabetes have no symptoms at all, symptoms of diabetes may include unusual thirst, a frequent need to urinate, blurred vision, or extreme fatigue. A medical lab test may show some signs that suggest prediabetes may be present.

Who Should Be Tested for Prediabetes?

You should be tested for prediabetes if:

  • You're 45 years of age or older.

  • You're overweight with a BMI (body mass index) of 25 or over and have any of the following risk factors for diabetes:

    • You are physically inactive.

    • You have a first degree relative with diabetes.

    • You belong to a high risk ethnic group.

    • You have a history of gestational diabetes or delivering a baby that weighed more than 9 pounds.

    • You have polycystic ovary syndrome.

    • You have high triglycerides or low HDL (good) cholesterol.

    • You have had abnormal blood sugar tests in the past.

    • You have a history of heart disease.

    • You have any signs of a condition called insulin resistance (such as severe obesity or a skin condition called acanthosis nigricans).

How Is Prediabetes Diagnosed?

To determine if you have prediabetes, your doctor can perform one of three different blood tests -- the fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test, the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), or the hemoglobin A1C (or average blood sugar) test. During the FPG blood test your blood sugar level is measured after an 8 hour fast. This laboratory health screening can determine if your body metabolizes glucose correctly. If your blood sugar level is abnormal after the fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test, you could have what's called "impaired fasting glucose," which suggests prediabetes.

How does insulin work?

Insulin stimulates skeletal muscle fibers to convert glucose into glycogen and amino acids into protein. Insulin also causes liver cells to convert glucose into glycogen and to prevent conversion of fats and proteins into glucose. Insulin also helps in the synthesis of fat and send signals to the hypothalamus to reduce appetite.

8 Herbs that gives Antiglycemia

The reduction in peripheral utilization of glucose and glycogenolytic effect due to epinephrine was blocked. It significantly blocked the inhibitory effect of serotonin on insulin secretion mediated by glucose.


Inhibition of α-2 receptor of pancreatic β+cells, thus promoting further insulin release.Ascorbic acid in Diactral acts as an antioxidant, reduce the liver LPO significantly and rejuvenates cells.


Effect of Eugenia jambolana seeds extract in isolated pancreatic islet cells of normal and diabetic animals was investigated and found that it enhances insulin secretion from cells. Eugenia jambolana extract also inhibited insulinase activity from liver and kidney.


Flavonoid fraction from Pterocarpus marsupium has been shown to cause pancreatic beta cell regranulation. Epicatechin, its active principle, has been found to be insulinogenic thus enhancing insulin release and conversion of proinsulin to insulin and reduces cardinal symptoms for diabetes like Polyuria (Production of large volumes of urine), Polyphagia (Gluttonous excessive eating), Polydipsia (abnormally intense thirsts), burning pains in limbs and general weakness.


The key enzyme at the end of the digesting process is called alpha glucosidase and its job is to release glucose from the more complicated carbohydrates. Bitter melon in Diactral plays a major role in the reduction of glucose absorption in the intestines and liver. Momordica charantia increases the renewal of partial cells in the pancreas or may permit the recovery of partially destroyed cells and stimulates pancreatic insulin secretion.


Aqueous extract of Enicostemma littorale induced serum insulin levels in alloxan-induced diabetic rats at 8 h was associated with potentiation of glucose-induced insulin release through K+-ATP channel dependent pathway.


Potentiating the insulin effect of plasma by increasing either the pancreatic secretion of insulin from the existing beta cells or by its release from the bound insulin.


Competitive inhibition of the intestinal brush border a-glycosidase activity, similar to the antidiabetic drugs acarbose and miglitol. Salacia reduces carbohydrate absorption and postprandial glycemia, providing an alternative to the conventional medical use of a-glycosidase inhibitors.

Research result summary

Treatment with optimum dose of Diactral reduces fasting blood glucose level on10th, 30th & 90th day as compared to the uncontrolled Blood Sugar Level on day 0. Optimum dose of Diactral reduces Fasting Blood Glucose level till normal desired level, but even high dose of Diactral does not produce Hypoglycemia.


SGOT, SGPT are marker enzymes for liver; increase in blood level of these enzymes is a sign of liver damage. In the study it was found that treatment with Diactral significantly reduces blood SGOT, SGPT level in diabetic patients when compared to diabetic control. Results suggest that Diactral prevents liver damage in diabetes.


Long-standing diabetes almost always destroys the kidney. Serum Creatine and Uric Acid are good makers of Kidney Function. Treatment with Diactral significantly improves serum Creatine and Uric Acid Level. When compared to diabetic control, it reveals that Diactral effectively improves and preserves Kidney Function.


Obesity is the major problem among type-2 diabetes, in fact this is the one of the cause of the disease itself. Study provides evidences that treatment with Diactral reduces Blood cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, VLDL and increases Blood HDL Level.


Study Evidences Suggest that poly-herbal formulation of Diactral exhibits significant and consistent improvement of blood sugar level and hypolipidemic activity along with Improved Liver and Kidney functions.

Mode of action of Diactral
  • Increases insulin (I+) production in pancreatic beta cells

  • Increases insulin (i+) Sensitivity in liver muscle cells so these cells can Absorb glucose (g+) from blood properly and Reduce blood glucose level

Diabetic overcomes T2D with Ayurveda

Mrs. Meera Wanjari (55 years Gondia MH.,India)

Mrs.Meera Wanjari had Diabetes Type II for five years before she approached Hillarious Ayurveda for treatment. She complained of low energy, depression, gas formation, acidity, obesity, heart problem detected and thyroid. Even though she was taking allopathic oral anti-diabetic medicines, his blood sugar was not under control. The fasting blood sugar was 300 mg/dl and PP was 400mg/dl. Expectedly, doctors had advised him to take tablet. She wanted Diactral to help control his sugar without any synthetic medicines.After analyzing his medical history and present condition, we devised a customized treatment plan that comprised specific herbal combinations aimed at improving the patient’s digestive system. All these medicines are made of herbs at our own Hillarious ayurveda. Diactral’s main challenge was to reduce his weight and boost up his mental stamina.

Created a special diet and lifestyle plan, which was aimed at helping the patient manage his energy levels and improve overall health through proper regulation of the food she ate and the activities she did throughout the day.

Result: Mrs. Meera Wanjari has been taking our medicines for over 12 months and has witnessed considerable improvement in his condition. Initially, she was taking allopathic medicines along with our Ayurvedic medicines. But now, the dose of Allopathic medicines has reduced over time. In fact, the first signs of improvement started showing after two months of treatment. She has lost seven kilos and is feeling relaxed and lighter. His blood sugar is also under control now.

“My doctors had advised me to take tablet regularly, as I was just not able to control my sugar levels. With DIACTRAL customized Ayurvedic treatment and diet plan, I managed to lose over seven kilos and have controlled my sugar as well. Thankfully, I was saved from tablet addiction.”
