WHAT IS DIABETES AND FOOT PROBLEMS?

Foot problems are very common in people with diabetes. The rise of blood sugar levels higher than normal, damage the blood vessels and make the blood circulation to the feet very poor. This causes serious complications such as ulcers and slow healing of wounds. People with high blood sugar also have decreased ability to notice pain and pressure. This loss of sensation further makes them more prone to accidental foot injuries. This is commonly called as ‘diabetic foot’.1

In Ayurveda, diabetes is called madhumeha kshaudrameha which means “excessive urine with sweet taste like honey”. Diabetes is described as one of the 20 types of urinary diseases or pramehas which are classified based on the imbalance of predominant doshas of the individuals (10 due to kapha, 6 due to pitta and 4 due to vata), and physical appearance of urine.2 Because diabetes does not occur in only one organ of the body, it may affect multiple organs and therefore, feet also get affected by it. This is called madhumehaj vrana. Ayurveda believes that diabetic complications often lead to non-healing wounds, especially those below the legs.
