WHAT IS TYPE 1 DIABETES?

Diabetes is a lifelong disease in which the blood sugar levels rise higher than normal. Type 1 form of diabetes affects about 5% of the overall diabetic people. It is usually seen in children, adolescents and young adults, and affects men and women equally. It is also commonly known as juvenile diabetes.

In Ayurveda, diabetes is called madhumeha kshaudrameha which means “excessive urine with sweet taste like honey”. The type 1 form of diabetes is called sahaja/jatah prameha in ayurveda and is mostly seen in children and thin people. The disease is only controllable, and not curable. Ayurveda describes diabetes as one of the 20 types of urinary diseases or pramehas. These 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.
