Why Can’t Diabetes Be Diagnosed Based on Symptoms?

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a disease in which the body’s sugar level is high due to incorrect functioning of the Pancreas (an organ other than the stomach) which generates insulin, a hormone that regulates blood glucose levels. Diabetes can also be caused by the body’s inappropriate usage of sugar.

Some of the main causes of the condition are sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, excessive sleep, improper/lack of sleep, stress, and so on. Diabetes is regarded as a silent killer because of its potential to spread over time and produce serious health problems such as renal failure, kidney damage, strokes, and so on. Thus, detecting diabetes at an early stage is critical in order to manage it before it causes major damage to the body.

When discussing disease identification, we frequently seek common symptoms in patients. However, in this case, the symptoms are widespread and are associated with common lifestyle issues. For example, if we discuss a symptom such as ‘frequent urination’ or ‘thirst,’ these are normal difficulties connected with lifestyle. We tend to be thirstier in the summer and urinate more in the cold. Does this imply that we have diabetes?

Other symptoms include feeling hungry and weary, poor wound healing, soreness in the hands or feet, and areas of black skin. However, when a person leads a sedentary lifestyle, the desire to consume more and feel fatigued appears to be a natural part of life. So, does this imply that a person has diabetes?

Furthermore, how are we to observe the wound healing process on our own? Is that detectable in a highly routine life? Dark patches on the skin are not natural, but they might occur as a result of various underlying hormonal disorders (particularly in women). So, can this symptom be used to detect diabetes?

“How can diabetes be detected?” is a difficult question.

Let us now consider an ancient Ayurvedic perspective on diabetes.

“Prameha” is associated with diabetes, according to Ayurveda. ‘Prameha,’ which literally translates to ‘Pra,’ meaning abundant, and ‘Meha,’ meaning urine or urination. As a result, frequent or large volumes of urination are associated with diabetic problems, and this is a predictor of the start of diabetic Mellitus, which is known in Ayurveda as ‘Madhumeha,’ which means sweet pee or the passage of large amounts of sweet urine. This is a case of hyperglycemia, or elevated blood sugar caused by the body’s defective insulin manufacturing.

Diabetes mellitus is characterised by an increased Kapha dosha, which can be induced by a sedentary lifestyle and poor dietary habits, according to Ayurveda. However, there are three basic categories of prameha, which are further subdivided into twenty variants based on dosha predominance and derangement, namely ten kaphaj, six pittaj, and four vataj.

Kaphaja Prameha is a disorder in which kapha affects lipid metabolism, muscle tissue growth, and the contents of the urine bladder. Excessive consumption of fresh pulses, curd, til (sesame), urad, or heavy and greasy meals or sweet foods, as well as a lack of exercise and excessive sleep, increase kapha and meda (fat), which accumulate toxins or ‘ama’, which then travel via the urine and form Prameha.

Pittaja Prameha is a condition in which pitta is aggravated by an excess of hot, amla (sour), lavana (salty taste), alkaline & pungent foods, an irregular diet, excessive sun exposure, anger, and overexertion.

Vayu causes Prameha in Vataja. Excessive use of astringent, pungent, or bitter foods in meals, irregular eating patterns or the use of cold foods, or excessive exertion, emesis, and purgation can all contribute to this type of Prameha.

Ayurveda’s framework is primarily centred on body type, its stimulus and responses to various types of meals, and the causes of its aggravation. A body is said to be in harmony when the three doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, are in sync with each other, according to Ayurveda. All three doshas are linked to Agni (fire), the centre of all systems in the body. All systems will be in harmony if Agni is satisfied. The digestive fire, or Agni, is affected by the sort of food we eat and how frequently we eat it. It aids in the catabolic and metabolic processing of food, converting it into nutrients that are then delivered to tissues throughout the body.

The question now is, how can this aid in the identification of diabetes?

If you have irregular eating habits, are fat, or have challenges that point out your relationship with your body type, this can be an early warning sign of diabetes.

How can diabetes now be treated?

It is manageable by leading a proper and healthy lifestyle. Ayurveda emphasises the necessity of preserving Pathya Ahara. Ayurveda states that if a person consumes a good diet and engages in activities that help all of the Dhatus (tissues), he would never suffer from Madhumeha. Prameha is said to approach the person who eats more, is unhygienic (even if he or she does not take a bath), and is indolent in the same way that a bird approaches its nest on a tree. Agnibala should be used to assess food quantity and quality (digestive power).

Once the body’s metabolic processes are in balance, the desire to reverse Diabetes holistically will be realised.
