There has been a huge increase in the diabetes rates in Chennai especially in rural areas. In the ancient theories of Ayurveda, Diabetes is described as Prameha, which means dysfunction of the urinary system.

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes your body doesn’t make enough – or any insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells.

What causes Diabetes?

Wrong Diet

Diabetes can be described as carbohydrate toxicity or intolerance to carbs. This can happen when we feed the body simple carbs alone all the time. When you do this your body pumps insulin to digest and you are hungry again very soon and you will end up eating more carbs. Very soon you are taking your body to the breaking point where the body is in a state of carbohydrate toxicity. Obesity could be a result of a wrong diet or excess calories or hormone related. But obesity is a risk factor

Sedentary Lifestyle

Any Life Style with little or no physical activity weakens the immune system. With body’s stress management system not being activated, body is in a state of inflammation.


Type 1 Diabetes

Doctors used to think type 1 diabetes was wholly genetic. Consequently, researchers now believe that something in the environment has to trigger type 1 diabetes. Some risk factors include:

  • Clod weather
  • Viruses.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetic is at least partially hereditary. People with a family history of the disorder are more likely to develop diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is also linked to a number of lifestyle factors, including obesity. Body in a state of prolonged inflammation of any kind is bad for the body. Even acidity where the food is getting fermented in the stomach is also one simple example


Chronic stress can lead to insulin resistance, which in turn elevates blood sugar levels. With regular exercise, meditation or yoga, the levels of stress hormones in our bodies decrease, resulting in better blood sugar control.


Whatever goes into the body be it food or medicine the body converts it into an absorbable form and what cannot be absorbed by the body remains in the body as toxin till such time it gets eliminated. This produces AMA as per Ayurveda is a cause for diseases.
