Diabetes, also referred to by diabetes-mellitus, is a disease in which a person has high blood-glucose levels over a period of time due to inadequate production of insulin by the pancreas and/or unresponsiveness of body cells to insulin. Common symptoms include frequent urination, increased thirst and/or hunger.
Diabetes can be classified as Type1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. In Type1 diabetes, also called insulin-dependent diabetes, the pancreas fail to produce enough insulin. Type 2 diabetes occurs due to insulin resistance by the body cells. Gestational diabetes occurs in pregnant women causing high blood-sugar levels.
The common terms used are hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia for excess blood-sugar levels and low blood-sugar levels. Although both have their own complications, hypoglycemia poses an immediate threat to life if left untreated compared to the later.
High blood-sugar levels can have adverse effects on eyes causing blindness in extreme cases. This is called diabetic retinopathy. Other complications may include increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, damage to blood vessels, nerves, stroke and/or peripheral vascular disease. Damage to kidneys can also occur, requiring dialysis in extreme cases.
In the management of diabetes, homeopathy has proved to be a very effective system of medicine. It helps the body by maintaining healthy blood-sugar levels without excess medication. For better diabetes management, contact Positive Homeopathy today.
Diabetes if ignored, increases the risk of other serious vision conditions, such as cataracts and glaucoma. Foot damage. Nerve damage in the feet or poor blood flow to the feet increases the risk of various foot complications. Left untreated, cuts and blisters can become serious infections, which may heal poorly.
I have taken treatment for Diabetes and Leucoderma at Positive Homeopathy from Dr. Arjun Venkatesh for the past nine months and now I feel good and satisfied fully with the treatment.

Frequently Asked Qustions
What health problems can people with diabetes develop?
Over time, high blood glucose leads to problems such as
heart disease stroke, kidney disease, eye problems, dental disease, nerve damage, foot problems
You can take steps to lower your chances of developing these diabetes-related health problems.
What is the cause of type 1 diabetes?
Type 1 diabetes develops because the body's immune system destroys beta cells in a part of the pancreas called the islet tissue. These beta cells produce insulin. So people with type 1 diabetes can't make their own insulin. The pancreas normally adjusts the amount of insulin it makes based on your changing blood sugar.
